Super-Sub Sasha Strikes to Seal Injury Time Win for Old Gold

Vince James reports;

Carmarthen Town moved up to the third in the table after a 2-1 home win over Haverfordwest in a match refereed by Richie Winter from Dublin.

In an excellent flowing game former County striker Tim Hicks put Town ahead on 35 minutes after he started and finished the move. Having headed out from defence to Nathan Cotterrall who made ground, Jamal Easter saw his shot parried but Hicks, who had ran the length of the field, fired in the rebound.

Earlier County's Jon Coates' volley hit the top of the bar for the Bluebirds and on the stroke of half time Gareth Elliot's headed effort also rattled the woodwork. Following the break the visitors put Town under pressure as Lee Hudgell's shot was parried by Neil Thomas and the striker also saw a second goal-bound effort scooped out by the Town keeper.

With the game ebbing and flowing County equalised with a cracking goal when Hudgell got between the Town defence and Thomas to volley home sub Chris O'Sullivans cross on 81'. But, Town had the final word when sub Sacha Walters rose above the defence at the far post to power home Nathan Cotterralls cross in time added on.
