REIGN­ING cham­pi­ons The New Saints now lead the JD Welsh Premier League on goal dif­fer­ence af­ter they won 3-0 at Caernar­fon Town – and early pace-set­ters Con­nah’s Quay No­mads crashed 2-0 at Barry Town United.

TNS’ win at the Oval over the newly-pro­moted Cofis sim­ply came down to the fact they took their chances whereas the home side did not. Dar­ren Thomas, Jamie Breese and Danny Brook­well all had ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­ni­ties to score for Caernar­fon but they found vis­it­ing keeper Paul Har­ri­son in fine form. They were pun­ished as Dean Ebbe put the Saints in front two min­utes be­fore the break and goalscorer then turned provider on 59 min­utes with Ebbe tee­ing up Jamie Mul­lan.

Greg Draper added a third for Scott Rus­coe’s side 10 min­utes from time.

It was a third win from four games for TNS and they now move above Con­nah’s Quay who had their 100 per cent win­ning start to the cam­paign ended by Barry at Jen­ner Park.

Kayne McLag­gon put Barry ahead from the penalty spot af­ter six min­utes with Mamodou Toure fin­ish­ing off a counter at­tack to make it two.
