Afan Lido 4 Ammanford 2

Three goals in the final ten minutes saw Ammanford surrender their 100% record on a wet and miserable evening at the Marstons Stadium.

Having gone behind in the first half, Town led thanks to goals from Adam John and Tristan Jenkins either side of the interval.

Although they created plenty of chances, it was Lido who provided the late drama on this occasion to keep their own perfect record in the JD Cymru South.

On a night that wouldn’t have looked out of place in the bleak winter months of the campaign, Ammanford started the game well and carved out a number of openings in the opening half an hour.

Ellis Williams drove the ball narrowly over the bar, Morgan Clarke was denied by the keeper whilst Tristan Jenkins went close with a pair of opportunities to give the visitors the lead.

Despite Ammanford creating plenty of chances, it was the hosts that took the lead with ten minutes to go in the first half.

Chris Jones won the ball back in midfield before playing in Liam Griffiths who fed Webber who rolled the ball past the wrong-footed Lansdown.

Despite the setback, Town got the goal that their play deserved just five minutes later. A corner from the left hand side wasn’t dealt with by the home defence which allowed John to poke home from four yards out.

Ammanford started the second half at a frantic pace and created three clear chances in the first five minutes.

Jenkins went close twice, firstly with a looping effort then dragging a shot narrowly wide before Lewis Reed saw a one on one superbly stopped by Exauce Dimonekene in the home goal.

The visitors got their reward for their attacking dominance just a minute after Reed’s effort.

Again, a corner wasn’t dealt with and the ball bounced kindly to Jenkins in the area to rifle home a powerful strike in to the back of the net.

Lido responded well to losing their advantage and Town were indebted to keeper Lansdown for keeping the scores level as he produced two superb stops in as many minutes.

Jones curled an effort goal wards which was brilliantly palmed away before Ioan Evans unleashed a venomous strike from the edge of the box which looked for all the world to be finding the top corner.

Somehow, the former Llantwit man got a touch on it to tip the ball over.

Ammanford were finding it difficult to resist wave after wave of Red pressure which finally told when Liam Griffiths finished well inside penalty area with 8 to go.

Lido regained the lead with three minutes to go. John Hall’s shot from distance squirmed into the bottom corner.

As the home side wheeled off in celebration, the linesman raised his flag. Despite the intervention, the referee overruled his assistant to give the goal.

Ammanford pushed for a leveller by making four changes but it was Lido who maintained their own 100% record and they put the game to bed deep into added time.

A short corner was defended poorly to allow youngster Ieuan Evans to finish cutely from close range.
