Corbisiero's Strike Stretches Reds Lead

LLANELLI moved to within touching distance of the Welsh Premier title after defeating Aberystwyth 2-1 at Park Avenue, a result that moved them ten points clear of champions The New Saints. But they had to come from behind to secure the points after Portuguese striker Tiago da Silva had put the Seasiders ahead in the 18th minute with his first league goal.

The Reds drew level before the half-time whistle as Mark Pritchard found the home net and the winner came 20 minutes from the end, Antonio Corbisiero on hand to fire in the goal that kept the Reds firmly in the championship driving seat. Llanelli now have four games to secure the five points needed to make sure they clinch the title for the first time.
