Newtown on track for Europe

 
Created on 21/04/2021 @ 10:05

Newtown are right on track for a Europa Conference League play-off spot after a 2-0 victory over Flint Town United last night.

Goals either side of half-time from Jordan Evans and Tyrone Ofori were enough to give the Robins a deserved three points in a game that saw seven players booked.

And hopes were lifted as news filtered through that Haverfordwest were crushed 6-1 by Cardiff Met, leaving them just two points ahead of The Robins.

Evans netted after Newtown won a free kick on the edge of the Flint box on 41 minutes  and doubled their lead six minutes into the second period.

Mwandwe again won a free kick in an identical position to the one that lead to the opening goal. Craig Williams lifted a high ball into the box and Tyrone Ofori netted with a volley after a goalmouth scramble.

Newtown: Dave Jones, Kieran Mills-Evans, Jordan Evans (Nick Rushton, 75), James Davies, Craig Williams (C), Tyrone Ofori (Jamie Breese, 75), George Hughes, Shane Sutton, Alex Fletcher, Lifumpa Mwandwe (Jake Phillips, 89), Callum Roberts.
