The Welsh Premier

Cream is starting to rise to the top. The New Saints continued their recovery from a poor start to record another victory - this time 2-1 over Port Talbot. Still not convincing though - which you cannot say about Llanelli, who continue to set the pace with another win - this time over Aberystwyth. And the other pre-season favourites, Rhyl took Caernatfon's unbeaten record. I can just hear Martin Eaglestone say 'b****r'.

Haverfordwest are right up there amognst them, following their 6-2 demolition of Connah's Quay - as are Welshpool after defeating Bangor City 2-0. Welshpool are building on last season's promise. I hope they get the European slot this season that they were so close to last year. My other local team, Newtown went down again, at home to Carmarthen. Things look sicker by the week for Caersws and Llangefni, following defeats at Newi Cefn Druids and Neath respectively. Both teams remain pointless, and desperately need a win to give them a chance of staying up. In the remaining game, Airbus scored a good victory over Porthmadog. No real surprises this week.
