Welsh League Division Two
Caerau 1 Ammanford 7
Ammanford, after the 6-0 loss away to Garden Village last week, faced another away trip with a visit to Caerau.
The bottom-placed side are facing a battle to survive as a Welsh League club.
With Matthew and Rhys Fisher unavailable along with Luke Fayres, Ammanford faced a shock on ten minutes when – against the run of play - the hosts took the lead.
Ammanford continued to take the game to the home team and equalised on 30 minutes when Caerau boy Rhys Owen headed in from a corner.
Five minutes later Ammanford went ahead when the home keeper failed to keep out Chris Hyde’s well-struck effort.
Ammanford continued to play their attacking style and went 3-1 up through Owen James on 40 minutes. James made four on the half-time whistle.
The visitors continued on the front foot after the break and Hyde claimed his second on 55 minutes to round off a smart passing move.
James bagged his hat-trick on 70 minutes giving Owen James with an angled strike and James Murray completed the scoring with ten minutes left.
Ammanford face another away trip when they visit mid-table AFC Llwydcoed on Saturday before finally returning to the green, green grass of home for the visit of Croesyceiliog on March 29.
