Cwmamman’s luck once again deserted them when they travelled to Glenhafod Park.

Having arguably deserved at least a point for a very good performance it saw them come away with nothing having lost 2-1 to a deflected speculative shot that spun over the goalkeeper and into the net.

The Blues had to call defender Ben Thomas into goal keeper action once more and again he produced a solid faultless display.

The game had started at a frantic pace and on five mins a great ball found Ben Rose Miles free and he managed to tuck it away for an early lead for the Blues.

The pace continued with Goytre attacking the flanks while Cwm were working Ryan Hurlow and Chrissy Allen into space with Ross Morgan and David Brown working hard in the middle of the park.

It was Hurlow who then had two good opportunities with a strong shot blocked, followed by a mazy run that ended with a shot straight at the keeper.

The defence with captain Gareth Howarth and Luke Sherbon dominant were looking very good until a mix up allowed Liam Griffiths a free shot which he put away comfortably.

Then a minute later disaster struck for the Blues when Keane Watts out wide fired a hopeful shot towards the box where it caught a foot and spiralled over the stranded Thomas.

Cwm immediately countered and Ryan Thomas broke free to fire a shot that was well saved by Stanton in the Goytre United goal.

The second half continued to be a free flowing but hard fought match and Elian Evans and Calem Rees were finding more space to launch Cwm attacks.

Ross Morgan shot just over the bar while Thomas agonisingly fired just wide.

Goytre were now defending deep, trying to contain Cwm's menacing attack, and Cwm suffered a blow when sub Nick Sinfield suffered an injury within a minute of coming on.

There was still time for one more hectic scramble in the Goytre goalmouth and a final looping shot just over the bar.

Shortly afterwards the referee brought a thrilling match to an end, much to the relief of the Goytre team and fans who could sense an equaliser coming the way of the visiting Cwmamman side.

Following the match, Ryan Stephens, Cwmamman United manager, said: "It is disappointing after such a positive performance by the lads today and especially by the nature of the winning goal but we have no time to dwell as we now move on to the Llanelli match at Grenig on Friday evening.

"That will be a crucial match for us"
