Flint Town United 0 TNS 6

TNS strolled to an emphatic victory at Flint Town United to maintain pace at the top of the JD Cymru Premier.

The Oswestry side hit double figures in the reverse fixture earlier in the season and once again displayed the gulf in class between the sides.

The Saints led inside the opening seven minutes with Ben Clark following up after home goalkeeper Jon Rushton could only parry Adrian Cieslewicz' shot.

Two minutes later Cieslewicz' corner was headed home by Ryan Astles and it was all over by the 11th minute with Cieslewicz releasing Louis Robles to net from close range.

Robles completed his double five minutes later with a fine headed effort from Chris Marriott's corner.

TNS once again threatened to run riot with Greg Draper and Danny Redmond testing Rushton.

The pressure told just before the break with Draper releasing Cieslewicz to slot home for his 50th goal for the club.

Substitute Ryan Brobbel added a sixth early in the second-half in his first action since September due to injury.

Rushton kept the Saints at bay to deny Brobbel as Flint spent the second-half aiming to restrict the Saints and keep the score respectable.
