The first was a brilliant 1 nil win over title rivals and league leaders Penybont last Wednesday (Mar 7). A James Loveridge goal separating the teams, when in truth, the Reds should have run out as comfortable winners but for a host of chances, which went begging.

Celtic Park has become something of a graveyard to Reds` hopes as they have still to record a win at the ground. Their latest visit in the second round of the JD Welsh Cup proved to be no more successful, although the manner of the loss was contentious to say the least, and hard to take.

With the score locked at 1-1 deep into stoppage time and a further 30 minutes looming, a tackle by Kurtis March on home striker Josh Bull on the byline led to Bull going down far too easily, but...

BOTH teams deserve credit for contributing to an entertaining game despite the horrendous weather conditions.

A strong wind and heavy rain sweeping across the playing surface did neither side any favours, but they overcame the elements and treated the sizeable crowd to an exciting contest.

A draw at the close was probably just about the right result, as chances were created at both ends, although the visitors shaded the overall play with the home side guilty of giving away...
