NEWTOWN edged a seven-goal thriller at Llandudno to top the Play-Off Conference as the game ended in a stoppage-time brawl.

Toby Jones pulled a goal back for the hosts which led to Robins' keeper Dave Jones and the home side's Lee Thomas being sent-off and visiting boss Chris Hughes was forced to put striker Luke Boundford in goal having used all his subs.

But Newtown held out thanks to earlier goals from Nick Rushton (2), Kieran Mills-Evans and Neil Mitchell, with loanee Rob Parry and Danny Shaw scoring for Llandudno.

Carmarthen climbed off the bottom of the table for the first time this season with a 3-1 home win over fellow strugglers Prestatyn, who replaced them at the foot of the table. New manager Gareth Wilson saw his side take a 49th-minute lead through Mike Parker, but the Old Gold's new signings came up trumps with Mark Jones scoring twice and Luke Bowen also on target.

Tenth-placed Aberystwyth are losing touch with the teams above tham after falling to a 3-1 defeat at Barry Town United, for whom new boy Jon Hood opened the scoring. Goals followed from Jordan Cotterill and Kayne McLaggan before Declan Walker's late consolation for the visitors.

Bangor City edged into second place on goal difference after a convincing 3-0 home win over Cardiff Met, thanks to goals from Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Anthony Miley and Dean Rittenberg.
