A SECOND half comeback helped Ammanford claim three points as they hosted Abergavenny.

The visitors took an early lead, but three second half goals secured the win for Ammanford and cements their place in second in Welsh League Division Two.

Abergavenny opened the scoring after seven minutes, making the most of a dominant opening.

Some intricate passing on the edge of the box ended with the ball at the feet of the Aber striker, who stroked his finish past James Kirkwood first time.

Matthew Fisher had an effort in response for the hosts, but his shot sailed wide of the mark.

It wasn’t the equaliser they were hoping for, but it was a sign that Ammanford were easing their way into the game.

Jake Hammond threatened shortly before half time. He ran at the Aber defence and was cynically brought down on the edge of the area.

From the resulting free kick, Fisher curled an effort destined for the top corner, but it was too close to the keeper who managed to snatch it out of the air before it found the net.

The second half was dominated by the home side.

Shortly after the interval, Brett Enoch’s tricky run into the area ended with a shot straight at the ‘keeper.

Then, five minutes later, Ammanford had strong calls for a penalty waved away when it appeared Abergavenny had handles in their own box.

However, the visitors almost doubled their advantage on 65 minutes, Kirkwood being called into action to produce a fine one-on-one stop.

Two minutes later, it was all square.

Ben Soal played a defence splitting ball over the top for substitute Craig Frater, whose composed half volley found the back of the net.

One quickly turned to two, as Rhys Fisher leapt highest to get on the end of a cross, and power a header past a helpless goalkeeper.

It was one-way traffic now, and the third goal soon followed.

Again, it was Frater who finished sublimely, this time from 25 yards out, and secure the victory for Ammanford.
