AIRBUS UK Broughton produced the only upset in the second round of the Nathaniel MG Cup, winning 2-1 away against the Welsh Premier League's bottom club Aberystwyth Town.

The Wingmakers, who claimed the scalp of Cefn Druids in the previous round, went a goal down to their former player Ryan Wade at Park Avenue. But Leo Riley levelled just before half-time and in-form Alfons Fosu-Mensah produced a brilliant finish four minutes after the break as the visitors went on to dominate the second half.

Minnows Pontypridd Town threatened a shock when they took a ninth-minute lead through Danny Hooper's penalty at Cardiff Met. The students equalised through Adam Roscrow with 11 minutes remaining and, after the game had gone into extra-time, the same striker settled the contest from the penalty spot to end a brave performance by the visitors, who had David Allen red-carded two minutes from the end.

Holders The New Saints sailed past Flint Town United 5-1 at Cae-y-Castell with Alex Darlington and Greg Draper both claiming a brace. Last season's beaten finalists Barry Town United were comfortable 4-2 home winners against Afan Lido, with man-of-the-match Louis Gerrard claiming two goals, while the visitors had Alex Gammond sent-off in the second half.

Carmarthen Town had to wait until the final minute of extra-time for a Liam Walsh goal to defeat Welsh Leaguers Haverfordwest County 1-0 at the Bridge Meadow, while Newtown beat Holywell Town 2-0 at Latham Park with Ryan Sears and Luke Boundford on the scoresheet.

Connah's Quay left it late before beating Bangor City 2-0 in an all-Welsh Premier clash at the Deeside Stadium. Callum Morris provided the cross for an 89th-minute goal from Michael Wilde and then scored himself in stoppage time to clinch the tie.

Caernarfon Town won an all-Huws Gray Alliance affair, beating Holyhead Hotspur 3-0 at Anglesey's New Stadium with goals from Nathan Craig, Jamie Breese and Darren Thomas, to gain some measure of revenge for their home defeat at the hands of the Harbourmen in the league this season.
