THE race for second place in the Welsh Premier continues to be a tight affair as Airbus UK Broughton and Bala Town both recorded victories.

The Wingmakers beat Prestatyn Town 2-1 at The Airfield thanks to first-half goals from Andy Jones and Chris Budrys.

Jones fired home from eight yards when a Tom Field free-kick found its way through the Seasiders' wall, but Andy Parkinson levelled with a well-taken set piece in the 19th-minute.

Budrys then scored what proved to be the winner with a superbly-taken goal from a Ryan Wignall cross.

Ellis Healing hit the bar with a header for the hosts, who dominated the second half without being able to convert several good chances.

Bala went back into second place after beating Cefn Druids 3-1 at Maes Tegid, Lee Hunt handing the Lakesiders the lead after a slip by Ancients' defender Adam Hesp.

Kieran Smith added another after Hunt had headed-on a Mark Connolly cross but Druids got back in the game with a goal from Derek Taylor.

But the win was sealed in the 77th-minute with a superb finish from Smith for his second goal of the game.

Carmarthen returned to winning ways after a barren spell, moving back into the top six with a 2-0 away win at Newtown.

Liam Thomas hit a 20-yard screamer to give the Old Gold a 19th-minute lead and David Brooks tapped home the second 10 minutes from time from a Cortez Belle cross.
