CEFN Druids man­ager Huw Grif­fiths was pleased as punch with the way his side re­sponded as they came from be­hind to record their first away vic­tory of the sea­son with a 3-2 tri­umph against Car­marthen Town.

An own goal from Matty Owen along with a Luke Bowen ef­fort had the Old Gold two-up by the break – only for the Druids to hit back in the sec­ond half through Alec Mudimu, Owen and James Davies.

“I thought we were the bet­ter side in the first half and I was dis­ap­pointed to be 2-0 down,” said Grif­fiths.

“We had 10 or 11 cor­ners and gen­er­ally dom­i­nated, but it didn’t look like we were go­ing to score.

“I had to raise my voice at half time to get the boys to im­prove cer­tain things.

“I’m a re­ally proud man­ager at the mo­ment.”

The top-of-the-ta­ble clash be­tween Con­nah’s Quay and Barry Town United ended 2-2.

Michael Bakare’s low drive put the No­mads ahead on 18 min­utes but two goals in as many min­utes be­fore the break from Mo Touray turned the game on its head.

How­ever sub Rob Hughes smashed home a sec­ond for Andy Mor­ri­son’s side af­ter 76 min­utes to make sure of a point.

Con­nah’s Quay still have the edge on Barry by virtue of a bet­ter goal dif­fer­ence and are three points clear of The New Saints – who re­ceived an­other blow to their ti­tle de­fence af­ter a 1-0 de­feat by Caernar­fon Town at Park Hall.

Nathan Craig’s late penalty handed the cham­pi­ons their first home de­feat of the sea­son and leaves them win­less in three.

Else­where Bala Town ran out 4-2 win­ners at Llan­dudno while New­town thrashed bot­tom club Llanelli Town 7-1.

Cardiff Met host Aberys­t­wyth Town this af­ter­noon (2.30pm).
