-I think the players are in the
-best place to keep warm.
-Rob Williams is playing out of
-position in centre defence today.
-TNS are very good at
-counter-attacking very quickly.
-I thought Adrian Cieslewicz could
-have gone for that himself.
-Ryan Brobbel glad the more difficult
-task to get a shot on goal.
-It is good to see new
-players in the TNS team.
-That was good defensive work
-by Craig Williams.
-They can't allow Ryan Brobbel
-that amount of space.
-It was a lovely move by
-The New Saints.
-Phil Baker couldn't quite get on
-the end of that corner.
-Chris Marriott is usually very
-accurate with his crosses.

-options in his squad.

-team. That is a healthy situation.
-Mitchell should have
-gone for goal there.
-He tried to set up the cross.
-Neil Mitchell is the leading
-marksman at Newtown.
-He should have gone for it.
-He was clean in on goal. Why
-did he not go for it?
-Newtown are conceding possession
-too easily at the moment.
-The Saints will make
-them pay for that.
-Luke Boundford is in the side today
-because he is a willing runner.
-I think you will be doing a lot of
-running this afternoon.
-He is a Les Davies type figure
-in the newtown attack.
-He hasn't scored in nine games.
-He hasn't scored this year.
-You need your players to be on the
-same wavelength on the pitch.
-It doesn't always appear
-like that with Newtown.
-At some lovely interplay between
-the new Saints players.
-That is a superb save by Dave Jones.
-It was an excellent shot
-by Aeron Edwards.
-It was a snapshot by Aeron Edwards.
-Dave Jones did well to get
-his feet moving quickly.

-patient this afternoon.

-their attacking players.

-Ryan Brobbel has looked like a very
-good player in these opening 12 min.
-Ryan Brobbel is playing in a key
-position for The New Saints.
-He will have to be up to
-speed to play well.
-He has replaced
-Mathew Williams today.
-That is a man who is feeling
-the cold conditions.
-Once again, Chris Marriott is a
-little bit long with his cross.
-I think the wind is playing a
-part at the moment.
-Neil Mitchell takes the ball to
-the dead ball line again.
-Chris Marriott did just
-Steffan Edwards had got up into the
-attacking quarter of the pitch.
-This is a good run by Neil Mitchell.
-That is a superb goal.
-Matty Owen has stroked the ball
-into the back of the net.
-That's his fifth goal of the season.
-It's also quite a shock.
-Matty Owen put in a lovely turn and
-then found the target with his shot.
-The little turn opened up
-the goal for him.

-They haven't lost
-a home match for years.
-Newtown Are Playing With a
-The New Saints will look to
-calm things down.
-I Wonder what is going through the
-mind of Craig Harrison.
-The goal came against
-the run of play.
-The New Saints have had 85% of
-the possessions so far.

-when Simon Spender moves forward.
-You have to exploit that space.
-He showed Great Ability With
-Jamie Mullan has been quiet so far.
-The corner is conceded.
-Jamie Mullan is a
-The big men are up from
-the back once more.

-That was a loose pass from
-..followed by a poor a clearance.
-Jamie Mullan has come to life
-in the last five minutes.
-He has quick feet.
-He got the ball onto his
-stronger right foot.

-Greg Draper has a very good
-record against Newtown.
-He has not had a sniff

-players diving To Win Free Kicks.
-I have the honour of

-Connahs Quay have scored four from
-set pieces against them.

-Attackers who beat two defenders
-in the box should shoot!
-Luke Boundford is
-working his socks off.
-He is leading the line
-well for Newtown.
-I wonder if Craig Harrison is
-considering an early change.
-He has plenty of quality
-players on the bench.
-It is interesting to see him

-..so early in the match.
-Newtown have brought the tempo down.
-They are forcing The New Saints to
-play Up Their slower tempo.
-You would have to say that

-and put in a good shift.
-The New Saints Have A Chance
-The final pass was a poor one.
-There were no gaps for
-Aeron Edwards to aim for.
-Good work from Phil Baker.
-Newtown are playing as an
-unit at the back.

-no pressure on the ball.
-The stars of the first half have
-been the Newtown back four.
-Good work by Aeron Edwards

-He has come to close to
-scoring on two occasions.
-I thought that was heading for
-the corner of the net.
-Dave Jones did not move.
-He knew that he had no hope of
-stopping that one.
-This half has gone quickly.
-There have been no injuries.
-What does Owain Tudur Jones

-It could Have Gone Anywhere.
-That Was Heading For the back Of The
-Net Before it hit the defender.
-It was blocked by Jamie Tolley.
-Everyone missed the corner!
-Kai Edwards got closest to it.
-Their corners aren't working today.
-I think they need to think of
-Kai Edwards knows that he
-should have done better.
-Russia have one today.
-They are in the same group as Wales
-for the European Championships.
-That must be the slowest
-decision of the season.
-It was definitely a freekick...
-..but the referee was waiting to
-See If There Was Any advantage.
-Maybe he was admiring the
-half Cruyff turn!
-That was a great ball
-against the wind.
-The New Saints counter-attack
-The yellow shirts have
-They are very organised in defence.
-The shot from Christian Seargeant
-passed harmlessly by the post.
-It is difficult to close
-shots like that down...
-..when you have men behind the ball.
-This is an important five
-minutes of The New Saints.
-They will not want to be
-behind at half-time.
-Simon Spender has been a
-willing runner chasing...
-..some lost causes on the wing.
-Cieslewicz has been quiet after the
-lively opening 10 minutes.
-Kai Edwards past the post.
-That was a lovely first touch from
-Aeron Edwards back to Kai Edwards.
-It was a lovely backheel
-into his path.
-There was no one from
-The New Saints at the far post.
-They played the ball down the
-corridor of uncertainty.
-The goalkeeper couldn't risk
-coming out for the ball.
-It's a good cross...
-..but the goalkeeper stamped his
-authority all over the ball.
-He's been one of Newtown's best
-players this first half.
-Here is the cross.
-The keeper needs to be
-brave to go for that.
-He just put his shoulder
-into the attacker.
-Dave Jones might not be very tall
-But He's quite square.
-Newtown need to concentrate.
-That is beautiful from Cieslewicz.
-It's another corner.
-They gave him too much
-time and space.
-He goes past one.
-He goes past another.
-He could have gone down for
-the penalty there.
-If they score now it would be very
-Disappointing for Newtown.
-I can't think there will be
-much injury time.
-I cannot remember one injury.
-Adrian Cieslewicz was trying to
-create something there.
-That looked like a high foot.
-That is quite high.
-I think Mitchell was
-dipping his head.
-Dave Jones will take his time.
-I think Boundford was pushed there.
-I'm not sure where they've
-found 2 minutes.
-Maybe the time it took the referee
-to give that long Freekick decision.
-I think they just picked to number
-off the top of their heads.
-That was a challenging cross
-from Jamie Mullan.
-The chairman of TNS is
-wondering what's going on.
-Some people have suggested that TNS
-are doing this deliberately...
-..to make the end of the
-season more exciting.
-They are too professional for that.
-I imagine Craig Harrison is
-going to give TNS...
-..a good talking to at half-time.
-For the standards we
-expect from TNS,
-they haven't been good enough
-in this first Half.
-There is a goal.
-The Newtown defence is incensed.
-They are calling for a handball.
-Jamie Mullan got the last touch.
-The referee didn't think
-it came off his Hand.
-Does it hit his chest or his arm?
-Did the final touch come off
-the Newtown player?
-That is so obvious.
-That is heartbreaking for Newtown.
-Jamie Mullan won't put
-his hands up to that.
-He has put his hand up to push
-the ball into the goal.
-disappointing for Newtown.
-The league champions were behind for
-the majority of the first half.
-They equalised right at the death.
-It was an incredibly
-It's all square at half-time.
-How disappointed are? you with
-the final Few minutes?
-We're disappointed that the
-..doing their job properly.
-It said obvious handball.
-We've had to Defend and
-try to counter.
-They've had a lot of possession.
-We are happy with what we've done.
-We're disappointed with what
-happened in the last 30 seconds.
-It's infuriating that the officials
-didn't do their job Properly.
-You know that TNS Will Always
-Have A Lot of the ball.
-We know we have To Be better.
-If you turn the ball over against
-TNS you Get Punished.
-Chris Hughes says it all.
-It wasn't quite hand of God
-and Diego Maradona...
-The champions are trying to...
-Newtown scored first at Park Hall.
-The visitors managed to hold their
-ground for the first half mostly.
-It's an incredibly cruel game.
-Jamie Mullan put the ball in
-the back of the net.
-It was a clear handball.
-I'm joined by Owain Tudur Jones.
-We Were Behind The Goal.
-It's cruel sometimes isn't it?

-ball hit Mullan's arm.
-I can't believe it was given.
-The assistant Referee Sprinted
-down the tunnel.
-Let's see it again.
-Is There any excuse For The
-They Should See what
-happens the first time.
-If the referee can see it, the
-assistant referee Should See it.
-It's a dangerous cross.
-He's tried to do that.
-He's moved his Arm Toward The Ball.
-It Has Just Hit him.
-The Newtown Players All knew
-There were seven or eight of
-Them Running Out at the referee.
-You know there's something wrong
-when That many Players React.
-It's very cruel.
-Newtown have been ahead.
-Newtown played very well in
-the first half.
-They caused TNS problems
-in attack early on.
-They parked the bus across the
-midfield after going ahead.
-That second touch on his left foot
-was superb by Matty Owen.
-It gave him the time to pass
-the ball into the net.
-Getting the first goal...
-..puts more confidence in your
-ability to control the game.
-Newtown's defence across the
-box has been superb.
-It's not quite like the Alamo.
-Aeron Edwards has gone close a
-couple of times.
-They don't seem to be panicking.
-Aaron thought he'd scored there.
-When you play TNS...
-..what you're really worried
-about is passing...
-..between the defenders.
-Newtown have minimised that
-as much as they can.
-They have forced TNS to shoot
-from outside the box.
-TNS can threaten from
-many different angles.
-When you go ahead...
-..you tend to sit back.
-That gives the attackers...
-..more. time to think about what
-they're going to do.
-They get more space on the ball.
-It's a little frustrating
-..that they are equal at half-time.
-They should have gone in ahead.
-Chris Hughes will have a difficult
-Job in the changing room.
-Join us after the break.
-Welcome back to Park Hall for live
-coverage of TNS v Newtown.
-The half-time score is
-The New Saints 1-1 Newtown.
-Newtown took the lead...
-..but The New Saints equalised in
-Jamie Mullan hit the
-ball with his hand.
-Let's Have A Word with former
-striker Malcolm Allen.
-Jamie Mullan Joins A List
-Did you ever do that yourself?
-Yes I did.
-It Is A Difficult One.
-He stuck out his arm
-and scored with it.
-If The Chance Offers Itself...
-..You Have to take it.
-It would have been a better match if
-Newtown still lead at half-time.
-Does he look guilty?
-He feels no shame, he is a striker.
-If the thought it was a shoulder...
-..maybe he needs a pair of
-Jamie Mullan has done what
-He is paid to do.
-Put the ball in the net.
-Other people are paid to worry
-about the other stuff.
-That will change the
-course of The game.
-There Are No Changes to
-The weather has improved.
-It is warmed up and it
-has Stopped Raining.
-We saw some lovely passages of play
-from both teams in the First half.
-It was a good half of football.
-Ryan Brobbel and Jamie Mullan are
-not on the same wavelength.
-Ryan Brobbel has been
-released by Middlesbrough.
-He is from the same part of the
-world as manager Craig Harrison.
-Craig Harrison will be keeping an
-eye on players all over the place.
-There will be 200 players
-released by clubs this summer.
-He has to keep an eye out
-for any talent.
-We saw some flashes of quality
-in this first half.
-That was an important interception
-by Kieran Mills-Evans.
-He is part of the Newtown defence
-that has played very well.
-The Newton players must
-keep their heads.
-Wrong decisions are
-given in every match.
-You must get over them quickly.
-The New Saints players are able to
-find space on the pitch.
-Newtown are given the throw.
-Ryan Brobbel does not agree
-with that decision.
-He started well and then
-faded in the first half.
-Kai Edwards read that well.
-Ryan Brobbel created
-space for himself.
-Craig Williams once again
-saved the day for Newtown.
-I Don't Know Why He needed
-that final touch.
-Christian Seargeant forced the
-goalkeeper into a save.
-I thought it was a cross
-to the far post.
-Dave Jones has started the
-second half well.
-He played well in the first half.
-The New Saints are pressing...
-..and there are putting the Newtown
-defensive system under pressure.
-Their team will ask questions until
-the very last minute of the match.
-Chris Hughes has said that his team
-need to keep possession better.
-They're managing to do
-that at the moment.
-The cross was A tad too high
-for Luke Boundford.
-Strikers need to run in and gain
-height from their momentum.
-The New Saints are patient...
-..but they're trying to break
-down the Newtown defence.
-Luke Boundford is the only
-man up for Newtown.
-Newtown only need half a chance to
-launch a counter-attack.
-That was a great ball into
-the path of Greg Draper.
-Kieran Mills-Evans did
-well to stop them.
-You cannot afford to turn your
-back on the attacker.
-That almost reached Boundford.
-He would have been in if
-that had stuck.
-Craig Williams was drawing players
-out of position on the right.
-Newtown are managing to open up
-The New Saints defence.
-Once they manage to keep
-possession they are playing well.
-I don't know why
-Kai Edwards went to ground.
-Once Kai Edwards or Phil Baker...
-..are drawn out of position in
-the centre of defence...
-..The New Saints have problems.
-The wind here is swirling around.
-That was a brilliant ball.
-He was inviting players to
-run in onto that.
-No Newtown players ran
-onto that one.
-Where on earth were the
-..nearly found the back of the net.
-It Was heading in to the net.
-Newtown must keep their levels
-of concentration up.
-Matty Owen crosses the ball but
-there's no one there.
-Kai Edwards is working harder today
-..due to Baker's lack of pace.
-Good Work by Tom Goodwin
-Jamie Mullan is in space.
-He was caught in two minds.
-Maybe you should have gone himself.
-It was a difficult ball
-through to Greg Draper.
-Newtown are using the ball
-better in this second half.
-That was another race between
-Luke Boundford and Phil Baker.
-That is a dangerous race
-for The New Saints.
-Jamie Mullan had a chance but
-Newtown were back in numbers.
-He slowed the move up
-towards the end.
-He was certainly in two minds.
-Matty Owen and Jamie Mullan scored
-the goals in the first half.
-The New Saints will be thinking...
-They might bring on Matty Williams
-instead of Ryan Brobbel.
-Ryan Brobbel had a great
-chance to score...
-..but he took a touch too many.
-Aeron Edwards passEd the post.
-He has been close three times today.
-Dave Jones was protecting
-is far post.
-Edwards' body shape told the
-goalkeeper what he was trying to do.
-The goalkeeper read the play well.
-There will be a substitution
-Jamie Tolley is replaced
-by Matthew Cook.
-The Newtown midfield has
-Matthew Cook will
-continue that good work.
-The referee has had a word
-with Craig Harrison.
-He was a bit too local on
-Matthew Cook has plenty of
-He has started 17 matches
-That is is second of the match.
-That was even better than his first.
-Newtown Are Back in the lead.
-What a goal!
-He had plenty Of Time And Room and
-he hits it like a bullet.
-He showed great technique.
-That gave his shot power.
-That was quite a goal.
-That goal would be a worthy winner
-if Newtown managed to win...
-..for the first time this year.
-Newtown have Taken the lead for
-The Second time in the match.
-The New Saints have to start again.
-The New Saints about lost two
-..since November 2011.
-That is a tantalising statistic.
-Matty Owen is a very neat and
-He Does Not Have To think
-about his first touch.
-That is a great strength
-as a player.
-He does not show it every week but
-everyone knows that he has it.
-That could be a Booking.
-Tom Goodwin knew that he had
-to take some action.
-He has taken one for the team.
-He has not been booked.
-Christian Seargeant Dave Jones
-has pulled off...
-..more than one good save today.
-Chris Mariott's free kick was
-blocked by the wall.
-That was a bit of a wasted
-Newtown passed that out instead
-of simply clearing it.
-Newtown must carry on
-The Ball Out Of Defence.
-Newtown have played as an unit.
-Aeron Edwards is penalised.
-Matthew Cook has been influential
-since coming on as a substitute.
-You do not weaken your team when
-you bring on Matthew Cook.
-The dim town midfield partnerships
-have been very effective.
-Matthew Cook and Tom Goodwin
-carry on the good work.
-Tom Goodwin is happy to
-shield his defence.
-Matthew Cook is happy to
-take an extra touch.
-The New Saints always
-have creative players.
-That has been a strength
-that there is.
-They offer something different.
-Luke Boundford with more good work.
-No foul says the Referee.
-Simon Spender did very well.
-I wonder has the referee made
-another controversial decision?
-I've seen those given but he
-was looking for that.
-He did Not Hit The Ball Far Enough
-Across Simon Spender's Path.
-There's a bit more spice in the
-match in the second half.
-Some of the tackles have
-Both managers had been very
-vocal On The Touchline.
-Jamie Mullan into the box.
-It was good defensive work
-from Steffan Edwards.
-Aeron Edwards with the cross and
-Kai Edwards was in plenty of space.
-That was The New Saints best
-opportunity of the second half.
-Greg Draper is coming off.
-He is replaced by Scott Quigley.
-Matthew Williams will
-replace Adrian Cieslewicz.
-Ryan Brobbel will move
-out to the left...
-..and Matty Williams will play in
-the number 10 position.
-started well but faded.
-Matty Williams has been forced to
-take off his wedding ring.
-I hope his wife understands why.
-The referee looked hard at the
-tackle of Kieran Mills-Evans.
-That was a dramatic 30 seconds.
-You had to do your
-homework on Scott Quigley.
-You should know that he will be
-looking to turn the defenders.
-You cannot afford to get
-too tight on him.
-Kieran Mills-Evans will have to
-learn that lesson very quickly.
-Neil Mitchell wins the
-corner for for Newtown.
-Matty Williams has finally
-come on as a substitute.
-The defender got the
-ball in the end.
-You are not allowed to tackle from
-the side or from behind these days.
-That was a last-ditch tackle
-and he got away with it.
-It happens all over the pitch but is
-never a foul in the penalty box.
-I always say that goalkeepers get
-looked after two well these days!
-We will have highlights of the Wales
-versus Ukraine match on Monday.
-Matty Williams is shot is
-deflected for a corner.
-Wouldn't say that Newtown
-are hanging on.
-Neil Mitchell is tackled
-and he stays down.
-No foul says the referee.
-Chris Marriott's tackle was a bit
-late on Neil Mitchell.
-Neil Mitchell got there first but it
-was a fair tackle in my opinion.
-Both feet were on the floor.
-Newtown are in for an
-uncomfortable 15 minutes.
-The New Saints will not give up
-until the very end.
-All the TNS players except the
-keeper are up in the Newtown half.
-The yellow shirts at Newtown have
-Made a good job of keeping...
-TNS are being too are being forced
-to attack from the wings.
-Chris Seargeant went for the lob.
-Dave Jones had to save that.
-Matty Owen clears
-The Ball With His Head.
-Newtown are under an incredible
-Amount Of Pressure At The minute.

-It's cleared away by Newtown again.
-Chris Marriott shoots. But it was
-straight at the goalkeeper.
-There were a lot of TNS players
-coming in after the ball.
-Dave Jones did very well.
-How do you see it going,
-Owain Tudur Jones?
-TNS are starting to
-Newtown are doing a good job of
-holding their shape.
-TNS fullbacks are doing a
-sterling job attacking.
-This is Matty Owen's goal. It
-was a thing of beauty.
-Chris Hughes is pretty

-That is a good interception
-Aeron Edwards with the ball.
-The ball went along.
-Aeron Edwards is coming off.
-Mike Wilde is coming on.
-Mike Wilde is an attacker.
-Aeron Edwards is a midfielder.
-It has nothing to do
-With Aeron Edwards's performance.
-It's simply that TNS Need to score.
-Mike Wilde has scored seven
-goals this season.
-There are 10 minutes remaining.
-There have been 1218 days
-since TNS lost at home.
-Carmarthen beat them
-three goals to nil.
-Concentration is waning a little.
-Everybody needs to roll up their
-sleeves and keep performances high.
-The defenders need to make sure that
-they don't leave any gaps.
-Here comes Sean Evans.
-He will replace Scott Ryan.
-Newtown are replacing an
-attacker with a defender.
-Scott Ryan Has Done A lot of the
-He's put in a shift at
-the coal face.
-They've brought on the experienced
-player to close out the match.
-The ball was too close to
-I'm pretty sure Dave Jones will
-take those all day long.
-TNS might not want to do too much of
-that, it will cost them...
-Chris Hughes was ready to go in
-one goal up at half-time.
-Boundford has a chance.
-He curled it over the top corner.
-It was very close.
-He should really have
-done So Much Better.

-He should have passed it.
-Newtown Are On The Hunt For
-a third goal.
-Neil Mitchell on the Ball.
-He's lost it and that
-was really silly.
-The Six Nations finished
-And to be honest that
-Was A Pretty Weak Tackle...
-..Even By Italian Standards.
-The game seems to be opening up.
-That was never going in.
-Dave Jones has been commanding
-in the air tonight.

-Mike Wilde battles for the ball.
-It's a goal kick.
-It's definitely a goal kick.

-This is going to be a huge
-story in this league.

-This is an opportunity.
-This is in a very dangerous
-It was a dangerous ball.
-Mike Wilde got pulled down a
-few minutes ago.
-This is a dangerous area.
-Marriott has scored some
-classy goals from here.
-Look at how much time there is left.
-We are nearing the 90 minutes.
-Are TNS going to lose their first
-home game in a run of around 50?
-Marriot knows he should
-have done better.
-He was leaning back too much.
-That's what gave the ball
-that much height.
-How much time will the fourth
-official gave us?
-How much longer is
-How much hope is there for TNS?
-Spender was pushed to the
-ground by Neil Mitchell.
-That hasn't been given.
-Spender went down like a sack
-of potatoes there.
-When you are under pressure on the
-field, you make poor choices.
-Mike Harris, TNS's chairman
-said earlier on...
-..that TNS weren't certain
-of the title yet.
-The referee doesn't
-think that hit a hand.
-Luke Boundford and Phil Baker
-were after that ball.
-Who is the man of The Match?
-Rob Williams, Kieran Mills-Evans and
-Matty Owen were all in contention.
-Matty Owen has been outstanding.
-He has just scored two
-If context counted they would both
-be up for goal of the season.
-But they might be the goal
-of the month anyway.
-Here Comes A Newtown counter-attack.
-Sean Evans just needs to
-That was superb play From Him.
-There are 60 seconds left.

-He has gifted Newtown the victory.
-They can waste as much
-time as they want now.
-There was a yellow card for
-Jamie Mullan too.
-He shot His Mouth Off One
-too many times.
-Newtown will take their time here.
-The wind picking up but the storm
-is coming if TNS lose today.
-The clock is still ticking.
-Harrison pushed his man to
-the ground there.
-That wasn't good enough.
-It is an incredible win for Newtown.
-They've taken a huge scalp in the
-Welsh Premier league.
-It's been 1218 days since TNS last
-lost at home in the league.
-This could stop TNS from winning
-their Welsh Premier league...
-Matty Owen scored two
-TNS, the champions, have lost for
-the second time on the trot.
-Gwennan Harries is joined
-by Chris Hughes.
-What a result, Chris.
-We were Not happy to go in
-one all at half-time.
-It was a blatant handball.
-We are delighted to get the win.
-We felt we hadn't had the rub of the
-green so far in the top six.
-To come here and beat the champions
-I'm very proud of the players.
-We always knew that we'd get
-chances on the counter-attack.
-It's just about being accurate
-when you get those chances.
-How Well Did Your Players
-execute the gameplan today?
-They were fantastic.
-Their rotational movement
-TNS have beaten us as well
-already this year.
-It's a big result For Us.
-We'll Take A Lot Of Heart Out
-It wasn't the best performance.
-This was a great advert
-for 3G pitches.
-This will give us heart now
-heading towards the play-offs.
-We haven't really had
-the rub of the green.
-It's been a huge effort
-by the players.
-They Will Be A few tired bodies
-tonight but they deserve it.
-Thanks to Chris Hughes.
-Here is Matty Owen's winning goal.
-What a way to bring TNS'
-incredible Records to an end.
-It's been three years since they
-lost at home in the league.
-The Table looks more
-interesting than it did...
-..at the start of The season.
-We thought that TNS were going
-to win this weeks ago.
-Bala Town could beat them and
-come within two points.
-This is an incredible goal.
-Matty Owen Finishes it superbly.
-They pressured high up the pitch.
-People don't normally do that.
-What normally happens is that Teams
-sit back and let TNS keep the ball.
-We come here and wonder why
-teams would sit back...
-..and let TNS have the ball
-when they come here.
-People try to park the bus...
-..Across The midfield against TNS.
-Sometimes if you go at them and
-put them under Pressure...
-..You Can Really make it
-a good contest.
-Let's see a few incidents.
-Should this have been a penalty?
-I think he gets his foot
-On the ball. It's very close.
-We've seen these given in the past.
-He did seem to pull him down.
-But it looks a 50-50 to me.
-I think that possibly maybe the
-TNS goal might Have...
-..Influenced His decision.
-Runs like this can be dangerous.
-Losing momentum is very dangerous.
-I was never convinced that
-Newtown were in danger today.
-Let's get some more reaction.
-Gwennan Harries has Matty Owen
-and Craig Williams.
-How happy are you with a victory?
-The Lads All Worked hard.
-Even the subs put in A Shift.
-We know we weren't going to
-see much of the ball.
-We Stuck To Our Game Plan.
-We've been a bit unlucky
-in a few games.
-The results haven't gone our way.
-We should have more points than
-we have at the moment.
-Hopefully we can put a bit
-of a run together.
-What About Those Goals?
-It Was My First Touch Of The Game.
-The second one I just put
-my foot through.
-Thankfully it just went in.
-The gaffer had a go at me for not
-shooting enough last week.
-I think I might have
-made up for that.
-All the players knew what
-they were doing today.
-It came off really well.
-We've had a few draws when
-we should have won.
-We should get some momentum
-for the play-offs.
-We Are Looking Forward to
-We qualified for Europe last year.
-The other great finish last year.
-Can you hand the man of the match
-award to Matty Owen please?
-Here are the results.
-Mike Williams gave Llandudno
-the lead in the first half.
-An own goal by Dave Roberts and a
-second from Nathan Woolfe gave...
-..Connah's Quay another notable win
-in the second half of the season.
-It was a bad night for Carmarthen.
-They lost 2-3
-at home to Port Talbot.
-Bassett and Mark Jones
-scored for Carmarthen.
-But goals from Artell, Clarke
-and Latham have all but secured...
-..Port Talbot's place in the
-top flight for another season.
-Suddenly, the top of the table
-looks very interesting.
-TNS' expected gambol
-to the finishing line...
-..suddenly looks like a
-more competitive two horse race.
-Bala Town are only five points
-adrift and come here next week.
-Should they win that game the gap
-would drop to two points?..
-..with two games left to play.
-The race for seventh between Bangor,
-Carmarthen and Aberystwyth...
-..is closer than ever.
-Craig, disappointed about
-as a result?
-More than disappointed really.
-I think we created enough
-chances to win the game.
-We got sucker punched twice
-on the counter attack.
-I'm very disappointed...
-..that we haven't already won
-the league this season.
-We are in the business to
-We Don't Care About records We
-Just Want to win the trophies.
-We haven't done that today.
-Will this make you more determined?
-I would like to think so.
-I have a good group of players.
-They are hungry to win the title
-for The Fifth Year in a row.
-It didn't happen today.
-Newtown scored a great goal.
-We Haven't Done Enough to
-win the game Today.
-We have a group of professionals...
-..and Staff Determined To
-claim the league.
-We are still five points ahead.
-There are three games to play.
-We have two then the semi-final.
-We can beat Bala and
-Win The League.
-No one expected That, Malcolm.
-It's great for the league that
-it's going down to the wire.
-It's a great Result For Bala Town.
-It's only A glimmer of
-hope for them.
-It's a huge boost for
-Chris Hughes And For Newtown.
-I do not think The New Saints
-will be worried yet.
