Bangor City have gone two points clear at the top of the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League with a comfortable win over Newtown on Friday evening at the BookPeople Stadium.

The hosts scored twice in a three-minute spell in the opening quarter, but had to wait until the final seven minutes to secure all three points against a spirited Newtown, who played three-quarters of the match with ten-men.
Chris Simm added to his growing reputation with the opening goal as his predatory instinct ensured he latched on to a Les Davies header on fifteen minutes. Just three minutes later and Davies was provider again as he assisted best-mate Sion Edwards who doubled the advantage with his head.
A terrible eight minute spell was complete when the Robins then lost Zak Evans who had only come on as a sub for Max Penk ten minutes earlier. There were no further goals in the half and despite the numerical deficit, Bernie McNally's stuck to their task well.
The points were finally settled on 83 minutes though, when the hosts extended their lead to three, as sub Alan Bull, who had replaced Edwards just two minutes earlier struck with almost his first touch of the ball.
