The win made it seven wins from eight for Bont who re­main a point clear of Haver­ford­west County – who them­selves needed to come from be­hind to see off Undy Ath­letic 2-1.

Gareth Cul­limore put Undy ahead but goals from Danny Wil­liams and El­liot Thomas won it for the Blue­birds who also won for the sev­enth time so far – although they have been de­feated once.

PENY­BONT will be hop­ing suc­cess con­tin­ues to breed suc­cess over the next two week­ends.

Hav­ing stretched an un­beaten start to the sea­son in Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Di­vi­sion One to eight games with a thump­ing 4-1 home win over Am­man­ford last Fri­day, ta­ble-top­ping Bont now have suc­ces­sive Satur­day af­ter­noon cup-ties.

This Satur­day they face Cwmamman United at Grenig Park in the Nathaniel Cars League Cup (1.30pm) while a week later they have been paired with un­beaten Di­vi­sion Two club Aber­bar­goed Buds at Bed­wellty in the J D Welsh Cup.

But from the out­set Bont boss Rhys Grif­fiths made it clear pro­mo­tion to the Welsh Premier­ship was the main aim.

Cup com­pe­ti­tions are of se­condary im­por­tance, and it re­mains to be seen whether they can keep their sea­son alive on three fronts.

The Brid­gend su­per club won’t be in league ac­tion again un­til No­vem­ber 17 when they visit strug­gling Port Tal­bot Town.

Mean­while, af­ter lengthy dis­cus­sions, Haver­ford­west County have now agreed to visit the Kymco Sta­dium on April 9.

The top-of-the-ta­ble clash was post­poned ear­lier in the month af­ter the Blue­birds re­fused to travel due to Storm Cal­lum.

The Welsh League man­age­ment com­mit­tee will next Mon­day night dis­cuss their de­ci­sion to re­main in Pem­brokeshire.
