Bluebirds earn fin win despite loss of 'keeper Kendall

This was a superb battling performance by the Bluebirds who navigated even the loss of Lee Kendall with a back injury to keep their goal intact until the 88th minute and to crack three past Carmarthen.

Defender Gareth Elliott scored from Ryan Durham's cross in the 2nd minute but for the rest of the first half Carmarthen came steaming forward, and it took six quite brilliant saves from Kendall to keep them at bay. Town must have thought it was their day when Kendall failed to appear for the Second period with a back injury.

Left Back and former Town player, Wayne Jones went in goal and Bobby Briers slotted in at left back. County defended superbly though and between the 55th and 70th minutes cracked in two good goals. First, Lee Hudgell was brought down in the box and Chris O'Sullivan slotted the resulting penalty to Neil Thomas's right. Then Tim Hicks picked up a good ball from Jack Christopher and drove in from the edge of the box.

Wayne Jones played his part with a couple of good saves and Carmarthens consolation goal from Paul Fowler in the dying minutes had little impact on a really fine Bluebirds win.
