Goalkeeper Mac McKane kept Llanidloes at bay early on and allowed the Polecats to lead against the run of play with Phil Ruell scuffing home Scott Davies’ cross

Penybont started the second-half with intent and Davies doubled the lead from 18 yards only for the Daffodils to immediately reduce the arrears.
