First Half Goals set up Aber Win

Three first half goals set up a comprehensive win for visitors Aberystwyth Town. Matthew Roberts' run down the left provided for the unmarked Andy Evans to head back beyond the keeper to give the visitors an early opener on three minutes.

Despite struggling to contain a sharp Aber outfit, Town almost leveled on 24 minutes but a double save from Jones denied Gregg Coombes' volley and Danny Thomas' follow up. Having snuffed out the threat Aber broke to double the tally. Indecision in Town's back line saw a ball-in only half cleared and with the keeper committed Hughes had the simplest of tasks to make it 2-0 on 25 minutes.

With the break approaching Danny Thomas broke down the middle and having played in Hicks on the left Walters somehow failed to connect with the striker's cross and the opportunity passed. And with the visitors breaking in numbers from deep Kellaway turned the defence for Passmore to fire passed Poole to give Aber a commanding half time advantage.

Lacking cohesion and conceding posession Town failed to make any real impression on the game. With fifteen minutes remaining Aber were reduced to ten men when Matthew Roberts was dismissed for a second yellow but with the game more or less won it made little difference as Aberystwyth continued their good run of form and Town were condemned to a disapointing second consecutive league defeat.
