Hopes were high when Llanelli took to the pitch at The New Saints' home ground, with the reds just three points behind leaders TNS in the league - a win would take them to joint top with just a few games to go.

Sadly it wasn't to be, with TNS proving too much of a handful at home, and causing the Llanelli defenders and goalkeeper too many problems.

TNS, formerly Total network solutions but now re-named The New Saints after the sponsorship of the team broke down, have been on a great run so far this season, and antered the match having been unbeaten in 11 matches. Llanelli weren't far behind, so the fans were right to expect a great game.

Whilst it was a hard-fought battle throughout, the game was effectively over by half-time, with TNS having scored four times to none. Darlington and Draper both netted two goals a piece, and they were three goals up after just 19 minutes.

Llanelli had a chance to restore some pride in the second half, with Rhys Griffiths scoring twice to save some face, but it was TNS who took home all the plaudits, and all 3 points.
