BRID­GEND A ................. 4 SWANSEA CITY B ......... 1

BRID­GEND A got a rock­ing pro­mo­tion boat back on an even keel with this com­fort­able victory over Swansea City B at Pen­coed Com­pre­hen­sive School.

Hav­ing lost their last two league matches – the last one to ta­ble-top­ping Whitchurch C – this was more like it from the Ravens.

A ninth league win with three draws from 15 matches con­sol­i­dated sec­ond spot al­beit 11 points adrift of Whitchurch C who have com­pleted one more game.

But sig­nif­i­cantly with third-placed Neath go­ing down 2-1 at home to Gwent A, it strength­ened Brid­gend’s hold on the sec­ond pro­mo­tion spot.

The gap be­tween Brid­gend A and Neath is now seven points from an iden­ti­cal 15 com­pleted fix­tures.

This Satur­day, Brid­gend a 4-0 drub­bing at Ynyshir Al­bion out of their sys­tem.

On Satur­day they travel to Ton & Gelli Boys Club - and matches at this venue are never a bed of roses.

And Ton will be look­ing to com­plete a league dou­ble hav­ing gained a slen­der 1-0 win at Felin­dre Road back on Oc­to­ber 14.

Goals have bor­dered on col­lec­tor’s items for Pen­coed this term, and have only scored 44 times in all com­pe­ti­tions.

Big Ben Tre­harne has struck eight times along with Marc Turner while Richie Lewis has a mag­nif­i­cent seven.

Kee­gan Alexander and Nathan Bryn are on the four-mark – one in front of Grif­fith Williams – and with two goals against their name are Jor­dan Bur­rows, Lewis But­ler, De­clan Howe and Ma­son Roach.

Sin­gle strikes have come from free-scor­ing nim­ble Adam Brim­ble and Jack Hop­kins.

Bot­tom-placed Llang­y­n­wyd Rangers weren’t on last week­end’s fix­ture-list, and they hope to re­sume at home to Can­ton Lib­eral Club on Satur­day. the game kick­ing off at 7.45pm.

Back in Oc­to­ber, the SWFA opened their sea­sonal cam­paign with a 4-1 win over Gwent.
