Rich return for Coyne

ABERYSTWYTH continued their revival with their third straight win after manager Brian Coyne enjoyed a successful raid on his former club. Having notched 12 goals in their previous two outings, the Black and Greens were made to work harder at windswept Latham Park after trailing to Tommy Mutton's 11th minute opener.

But they were back on terms through Gavin Cadwallader five minutes before the break, and Andy Evans fired a winner midway through the second period. Newtown took the lead when a Shane Sutton high cross was misjudged by ex-Robin keeper David Jones and Mutton put the ball in the empty net.

Stuart Roberts crossed for Cadwallader to convert. After the break, Sherbon's free kick bounced off the bar and Aneurin Thomas won the rebound with his header. Newtown pushed on for an equaliser late on with Williams-Cooke and sub Craig Williams both firing over.
