Haverfordwest 5 - 0 Undy AFC: Third round of the Nathaniel MG CUP

NATHAN Jones-Thomas returned to the side with a point to prove in Haverfordwest's victory over Nathaniel MG Cup opponents Undy AFC.

Thomas was a class above in a match that Haverfordwest never looked likely to lose, giving Wayne Jones' side their first wins on the spin this season.

Goals from Thomas, Danny Williams, two by Touray Sisay, and an own goal by Undy captain Gyles Thompson saw the Bluebirds win comfortably.

First half: Jones-Thomas quality

Four changes were made to the side that beat Flint at the weekend with Kyle Patten, Kurtis Rees, Ben Fawcett and Henry Jones dropping out for Elliot Scotcher, Mason Jones-Thomas, Danny Williams was handed his first start for the club since his return, and Jazz Richards received some valuable game time after his recent suspension.

The match started how many thought it would go with Haverfordwest applying the pressure early on.

Even with Fawcett on the bench Haverfordwest had a potent attacking line-up, Williams, Sisay and the returning Jones-Thomas the men tasked with dealing out the punishment this evening.

Undy were playing attack versus defence from the first minute and their night got that bit harder as the JD Cymru South outfit based near Bristol were forced into a substitute within four minutes, defender Oliver Smith replaced by Matthew Swann.

Two minutes later it could have got a whole lot worse for Undy, Scotcher thundering a 20 yard drive onto the crossbar with the aide of a deflection from Thomas Wright.

Sisay had his tail up after his first two goals for the club at the weekend and the big frontman was the focal point in attack once again.

A shot by the Spaniard was well blocked from eight yards and then the striker was through, but a dink over the keeper from a tight angle was too much and went over the bar.

A player that seemed to have a point to prove was Jones-Thomas, on the bench against Flint, the diminutive winger was a cut above the rest tonight.

Jones-Thomas' pace running with the ball was killing the Undy defence and it was no surprise he scored the first goal of the game, and what a goal it was. Picking up the ball in the centre of the park then skipping past two players, Thomas coolly slotted in the corner form 12 yards.

Wayne Jones said after the match on Saturday that once strikers like Fawcett and Sisay start finding the net they don't stop, and there could be a semblance of truth in the manager's prophecy, Sisay bagging the second with a routine finish in the box after excellent work by Jack Wilson on the wing.

Second-half: Williams gets his goal

It says a lot that Undy would have taken the 2-0 scoreline more than Haverfordwest and as Sisay turned and slotted in from the edge of the penalty area just two minutes into the second-half, the laid-back style Sisay possesses with which he was allowed to score, you worried for the Tiger.

The hour mark was when it really looked like it was creaking for Undy, Sisay had a shot saved well low down, then, after good work by Richards on the wing somehow Danny Williams turned his cross onto the bar from right in front of goal.

The fourth came in unfortunate circumstances, turned into his own net by Undy captain Gyles Thompson.

Danny Williams would get a full ninety to build his fitness as Wilson was replaced by Ben Fawcett, which would give Williams more time to get on the score sheet.

How the striker hadn't already got his name to the goals tally was anyone's guess particularly after a point blank stop on the line by Undy defender Kane Jellyman - who was outstanding for Undy in difficult circumstances.

Williams finally got his goal on 72', put through and finishing low.
