A 2-0 victory in the capital against Cardiff Met lifted Connah's Quay into second place in the Welsh Premier table.

The Nomads made the breakthrough in the 35th minute when a Declan Poole corner ended with Michael Bakare striking from just inside the box. The lead was doubled just before the hour mark as Jay Owen took advantage of Ben Bowler's slip to coolly slot past Will Fuller.

A disappointing afternoon for the Archers ended on a sour note two minutes from time when leading scorer Adam Roscrow was red-carded for foul language.

In Saturday's only game, Carmarthen Town survived a Newtown fightback to gain a welcome 3-2 win under interim boss Neil Smothers, which lifts them three points off bottom spot occupied by Prestatyn, whose home game with Barry was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Old Gold forged a 3-0 half-time lead, Liam Thomas scoring twice either side of a goal from Aiden O'Kelly. The second half saw the Robins mount a comeback through Nick Rushton and Kieran Mill-Evans, with Luke Boundford close to an equaliser in stoppage time.
