Mark Jones' 71st minute goal, his fifth in his first three matches for the club, proved to be the only goal of the game as Aberystwyth Town kept their Top Six hopes alive against Airbus UK.

The only goal came after Jordan Follows played his strike-partner through and the December Player of the Month rolled it passed debutant 'keeper Jamie Stephens in the Wingmakers goal.

Aberystwyth were strong at the back throughout with Sion James outstanding at the back and deserved their win in an otherwise uneventful match, which kicked-off at noon.

Aberystwyth have now joined Newtown and Bala Town on 26 points, just one point behind both Carmarthen Town and gap Connah's Quay with one match to play before the split.
