FOUR of the best helped Knighton Town past Welshpool Town at Maesydre to continue their climb up the League One table.

The Robins had a tight grip on the game, going close on several occasions as Lee Sutton tested the home stopper, before brothers Ade and Mark Jones combined, with the latter slotting home for his 12th goal of the season.

A further Robins goal was disallowed for a foul on the home stopper, before Dave Exall was equal to a Welshpool free kick.

Adam Worton’s side continued the second half in the same vein, looking sharp going forward and doubled their lead as veteran midfielder Gareth Watkins, introduced as a half time substitute, found the net with a goal of the season contender against his former club.

Connor Bird then swept home a penalty for his 12th strike of the campaign, before he nipped in to grab his second goal and the Robins’ fourth.

Exall made two late saves as the visitors hung on to climb up to sixth, with a 4-0 verdict.

In horrendous conditions Carno picked up a vital 1-0 win at Aberaeron to create a one point gap at the summit of the table.

Carno had a tight grip on the game, going close on a number of occasions, before they made the breakthrough on 35 minutes.

Drew Reynolds’ cross picked out Peter Rees who tapped in from close range.

The striker, who recently returned from Guilsfield, was denied late on with a chance to increase the lead, but the points were in the bag for the Greens.

Machynlleth made the most of postponed games, climbing to eighth thanks to an Andrew Page goal in a 1-0 win over basement boys Montgomery Town.

Tywyn Bryncrug climbed seven points clear of the bottom with a 3-1 win over fifth placed Waterloo Rovers.

Sion Ellis and James Roberts gave the visitors a 2-0 lead, before Nathan James pulled one back for Rovers.

Aled Jones completed the scoring for a much needed three points.
