Aberystwyth halt Swansea run
Aberystwyth Town became the first team to take points of leaders Swansea City this season when they held them to a goalless draw on Sunday.

Cardiff City Women have also trimmed Swansea’s advantage to four points with a 4-
At the other end of the table, The New Saints registered a vital 2-
Swansea will be aiming to get back to winning ways this Sunday when they host The New Saints, whilst Cardiff City Women host Cardiff Met Women in an important clash. Aberystwyth will be hoping to make sure of fourth place when they play away to Port Talbot whilst Pontypridd travel to Barry, hoping to capitalise if they fail to do so.
No matches were played in the North Division over the weekend and only one took place in the South Division, albeit an important one with Abergavenny Women playing host to Cardiff Bluebelles.
Top spot was on offer for the winning team on the day and it was the Bluebells who got off to a good start, Erin Flynn putting them ahead eleven minutes before half time. Amy Thrupp brought matters level again midway through the second half and with the game looked poised to be a draw, Lyndsey Davies scored an injury time winner to hand Abergavenny their fourth win in five matches and a lead of two points at the top of the table, replacing Cascade Youth Club.
