The Match

With the top six wide open, it was the perfect chance to gain three points against Llanelli, who sit bottom of the league.
We went into the game off the back of an unbeaten run at home and the result ensured the record is kept. Town looked lively from the start with high tempo passing and pressing every LLanelli touch.
The deadlock was broken on 8 minutes as Neil Mitchell scores from close range. The home side pressed for a second soon after and controlling possession. The second goal came on 27 minutes when Luke Boundford placed a Callum Roberts low cross into the bottom right corner of the visitors goal.

The left wing seemed to be the focus of attacks for Newtown as Roberts threatened often in the first half an hour. A Roberts cross was curled in for Luke Boundford only to be denied by the Llanelli keeper. The resulting corner saw Boundford get his second of the game with another trademark header to make it 3-0 on 32 minutes. Two minutes later after clever interplay through the middle between Leslie and Ruston allows Ruston to run in behind and slot the fourth for the Robins. The Robins continued to press and cause problems for the visitors and on the 40th minute the fifth of the game came in in great fashion with a strike from 25-yards into the top right corner by Nick Rushton.
The second half started in similar fashion as the first with a flourish of chances from Mitchell, Boundford and Rushton. Llanelli struggled to cope with the numbers driving forward, especially from Roberts and Williams from the fullback positions. The sixth goal came on the hour mark as Steve Leslie ran inside from the left into the box slipping past 3 defenders before calmly slotting the ball into the far right corner. The game looked comfortable for Newtown until Llanelli scored a consolation goal after a lapse in concentration. Craig Williams headed the ball into the path of Curtis March who capatalised and slid it passed Dave Jones.
The game was finished off by Ben Bailey who scored his first goal of the season with a header from a looping cross from Steve Leslie.
