Aberystwyth 1 Carmarthen Town 0
CARMARTHEN Town slipped back into the relegation zone after this defeat.
A cruel piece of luck midway through the second half and an outstanding performance by the home side's former Old Gold keeper Mike Lewis ensured that Carmarthen went away pointless.
The home side made a positive start with Declan Carroll firing narrowly wide from the edge of the area, followed just moments later by Cledan Davies's 20-yard drive which Town keeper Steve Cann held comfortably.
But the visitors struck back as midfielder Paul Fowler released Scott Quigley and the on-loan striker raced into the area before squaring the ball invitingly across the face of the goal only for a defender to clear the danger.

After 19 minutes Quigley again demonstrated his pace and strength, surging past two defenders and driving a fierce shot from 15 yards which Lewis did well to block.
Town maintained the pressure on the home defence with Liam McCreesh breaking into the area only for Lewis to punch his shot away. The loose ball was played back into the goalmouth where McCreesh's header, was once more denied by Lewis.
Aberystwyth started brightly after the break with Jordan Follows and Carroll both having shots.
Town replied when Fowler robbed a defender and strode to the edge of the area but his fierce drive was just off target.
Then on 63 minutes came the defining moment when Follows cut in from the right flank and drove a low cross towards the crowded goalmouth. Town defender Craig Hanford got his foot to the ball but saw it loop high over Cann's outstretched arms and into the net.
