LLANDUDNO racked-up their fourth straight away win to narrow the gap on Welsh Premier leaders TNS to 11 points, beating Carmarthen 4-2 at Richmond Park.
The visitors also put last weekend's shock Welsh Cup exit behind them and gained revenge for a home defeat at the hands of today's opponents earlier this season.
But it was the Old Gold who struck first when Liam Thomas headed home from a Keiran Lewis corner and Thomas should have added a second on 23 minutes when he blasted over from close range.
The visitors then took the lead, Leo Riley completing a good move before Marc Williams slotted home the second.
Luke Prosser levelled on the stroke of half time, but a controversial penalty handed the Seasiders the lead again when Lee Thomas converted and Williams added the fourth with a scrambled effort to become the WPL's joint top scorer with Tony Gray of Airbus.
Gap Connah's Quay cemented their place in the top six with a resounding 5-0 victory over Port Talbot Town at the Deeside Stadium.
TNS loanee Robbie Parry netted on his full debut after nine minutes from a Les Davies long ball, before Paul Linwood rose to head home a free kick.
Davies pounced on a wind-affected goal kick to add the third before the break, but the Steelmen had a couple of good chances after the break with John Danby denying Joe Clarke and Kurtis March then firing straight at the keeper from close range.
Nomads increased their lead from the penalty spot through Callum Morris after an Alan Tate handball and Sean Miller rounded off a great move and the victory with the fifth.
