Super sub Tony strikes late winner

SUPER-sub Tony Evans scored an 85th minute winner to earn Narberth three precious points at Tenby.
The Bluebirds are currently three points clear at the top of the table, and Evans late strike could have an important bearing come the end of the season.
Evans was demoted to the bench after scoring twice against Johnston last week, but the move was probably more tactical as player manager Matthew Price played a more defensive line-up with the purpose of hitting Tenby on the break.
Tenby were on top with possession and territorially, but were unlucky not to take the lead as Bluebirds keeper John Durbridge pulled off a string of good saves.
The closest the hosts came to breaking the deadlock was when Ashley Harleys header hit the post in the second half.
But right at the death Evans struck from a tight angle from a cross supplied by Jordan Williams.
