Solitary Mutton strike earns Nomads the points

<1r>A solitary poachers goal from Nomads striker Tommy Mutton was enough for the Deesiders to take maximum points over a spirited Druids side at Cae-y-Castell this evening.

The prolific marksman was on hand to place the ball in the bottom corner passed Carl Edwards in the Druids goal from six yards after James Taylor mis-hit an attempted clearance. The chance came when the returning Adam Dickinson made space to slide a through ball, which was intercepted by Taylor, before his error.

There were a number of other one-on-one chances for the Nomads to extend their lead but they failed to take them, which ensured a nervy final few minutes for Nev Powell's men. The Druids' striker Mike Heverin looked dangerous for the visitors, but the Nomads defence always looked in command, which ensured another clean sheet for 'Keeper Paul Smith.
