JD Cymru Premier

TNS' grip on the JD Cymru Premier title was loosened in a 1-0 defeat at Connahs Quay Nomads on Friday night.

In a match played in gale force winds which made football virtually impossible the Deeside hosts snatched the lead deep into first-half injury-time through Craig Curran.

The top of the table clash was marred by an early injury to TNS defender Keston Davies which saw home midfielder Kris Owens fortunate not to see red.

However TNS failed to create any meaningful openings in the second-half as Nomads soaked up the pressure in dire conditions to extend their lead at the top of the table to four points with seven games remaining.

Meanwhile Newtown went down 2-1 at home to Bala Town in a bad tempered encounter.

The tone was set early when Kieran Smith slapped Alex Fletcher in the face but despite Latham Park being in uproar the Bala midfielder avoided any punishment.

Bala led with two goals in as many minutes around the half hour mark with Louis Robles breaking the deadlock before Chris Venables struck with the goal standing despite protests from the home side.

Newtown were much improved in the second-half and reduced the arrears with 20 minutes remaining as Ian Sheridan headed home Lufimpa Mwandwe's right wing cross.

However Newtown could not complete their fightback and the match ended with controversy with Nick Rushton seeing red before Sheridan joined him in being dismissed for dissent before the bad tempered clash came to a welcome end.
