ABERYSTWYTH Town claimed three crucial points in their bid to secure a top six place, beating Carmarthen Town 3-2 at Park Avenue.

The Seasiders were on top for most of the game and Mark Jones almost headed his side into the lead after a misunderstanding between keeper Steve Cann and Cortez Belle.

Jones was soon denied by a Chris Thomas block tackle but Aber took the lead on 38 minutes, Antonio Corbisiero surging forward before playing a sliderule pass to Chris Venables, who slotted into the far corner from 10 yards out.

Venables looked certain to add another three minutes into the second half after being played-in by Kris Nalborski's square ball, but Luke Cummings made a superb challenge to clear the danger.

But the hosts did go further in front soon afterwards when Cortez Belle failed to deal with a long ball forward from Wyn Thomas and Mark Jones beat Cann in an one-on-one.

Cledan Davies missed a great chance to increase the lead, hitting his shot into the side netting while the Old Gold had to wait until the 77th-minute for their first real chance.

Christian Doidge headed straight at keeper Lewis from a Belle knockdown but, a minute later, the visitors scored.

Jordan Follows got the final touch after pinball in the box following a Kyle Bassett corner and, minutes later, sub Liam Thomas almost levelled, heading over from a corner.

Jones settled the contest seven minutes from time when he out-muscled Belle before firing home from six yards, but the hosts had a nervous final couple of minutes after Corbisiero fouled Jenkins and Liam Thomas netted in stoppage time from the penalty spot.

And Bassett almost snatched an undeserved equaliser when his 18-yarder flew inches wide.
