TNS 4 
Pontypridd Utd 0

TNS extended their winning run to five matches thanks to a comfortable 4-0 victory against Pontypridd United on Saturday.

A tight opening at Park Hall failed to to yield any openings until the 12th minute when Brad Young drilled wide from the edge of the area before the ex-Aston Villa forward saw a 28th minute effort deflected wide.

The Saints led on 32 minutes with Ryan Brobbel firing beyond goalkeeper George Ratcliffe from just outside the area to finally breach the United defence.

The Saints all but completed victory before the break with Ben Clark slotting home after good work by Jordan Williams on the right wing before the latter lashed home a third in injury time after Blaine Hudson's effort deflected into his path.


With the points already assured the Oswestry side took their foot off the pedal after the break but should have added to their tally five minutes into the second-half with Hudson steering his headed effort from Danny Redmond's cross over the bar.

Both sides made a succession of substitutions which disrupted the flow of the game before the Saints completed their scoring with 15 minutes remaining with a spectacular 30 yard blast into the top corner.

TNS: Roberts, Astles, Daniels, Brobbel (Brennan 66), Redmond (Marriott 66), Hudson, D Williams, J Williams (Cieslewicz 66), Clark, Smith, Young (Dafydd 83). Subs: Thompson, Holden, Davies.

Pontypridd: Ratcliffe, Cummings, Davies (Hunt 65), Williams-Margetson, Knott, Williams, K Lewis (Maertens 83), Rees, Wright, Pritchard (Hutton 64), Karadogan (Vaughan 73). Sub: Morris.
