Sharp Hero to Villain but Darlington Strike give Saints Win

The New Saints fresh from a commendable effort against CSKA Sofia in the Europa League took on Bala Town. Mike Davies' side left it late to secure the three points, with Alex Darlington getting an 82nd minute goal to give them a 2-1 victory.

Chris Sharp had opened the scoring after just seven minutes, only to see it cancelled out by Bala's Wales International Mark Jones midway through the half. The visitors must have thought they were in with a real chance when the influential Sharp was sent off early in the second half, but The Saints, as always, proved difficult to beat on their own patch and got what could prove to be a vital win in what's likely to develop into a tight Championship race
