Green made it 2-1 on 71 minutes with McLaggon adding his second four minutes later. Green sealed the win over Druids, who are bottom of the table.

Flint Town United 1-0 Aberystwyth Town: Neil Gibson's Flint continued their impressive start to the season, securing a third successive win with a late victory over Aberystwyth. Alex Jones' stoppage-time goal won it for the Silkmen, who are top the Cymru Premier on goal difference.

Haverfordwest County 0-1 The New Saints: Jordan Williams' goal a minute before half-time was enough for The New Saints to win at Haverfordwest County and maintain Anthony Limbrick's side's 100% start to the season.

Penybont 1-1 Connah's Quay Nomads: Champions Connah's Quay Nomads dropped their first points of the season as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Penybont.
