CONNAH’S Quay Nomads are into the third round of the Irn-Bru Cup after recording a famous 1-0 win at Scottish Championship club Falkirk.
The decisive moment in the game arrived a minute after the interval when Michael Wilde headed home from a Craig Jones free-kick which ultimately proved enough to send Andy Morrison’s side through.
With the Nomads and leaders The New Saints not in JD Welsh Premier League action this weekend, Newtown missed the chance to go top of the pile after crashing to a 3-0 defeat against a rejuvenated Carmarthen Town at Richmond Park.
Luke Bowen opened the scoring for the Old Gold 35 minutes into the contest and the same player doubled their advantage two minutes past the hour mark when he headed home Jordan Vickers’ cross.
Liam Thomas, so influential in Carmarthen’s first win of the season over Cardiff Metropolitan University last weekend, then added a third on 76 minutes to wrap up the points to make it back-to-back wins.
That defeat for Newtown allowed Bala Town to move above them into third spot after their 3-1 win over 10-man Llanelli Town at Maes Tegid.
Steve Tames scored twice for Bala with Nathan Burke also on target.
Chris Jones replied for Llanelli who also had Scott Tancock sent off for two bookings.
Llandudno recorded their first victory of the season at the fifth attempt as they defeated Barry Town United 2-0 at Maesdu Park.
Leo Smith and John Owen got the goals for Llandudno.
There is one game today as Cardiff Met entertain Cefn Druids.
