HOME comforts continue to give Bala Town a helping hand in Welsh Premier League action.

The Lakesiders' unbeaten run at home continues as they saw off the challenge of Llanelli at a rainy Maes Tegid.

Bala's opening 15 minutes was pretty much a non-event, with the visitors the better side during the initial stages.

However, Town did manage to get their act together after this slow start, with Anthony Miley heading over the crossbar from Henry Jones' corner and Sean Smith floated a free kick that was directed wide of the mark.

With 20 minutes on the clock, Bala opened the scoring.

Steven Tames broke down the left and powerfully curled the ball into the far corner of the net.

Two minutes later and a second goal was added to the home side's tally.

When Llanelli lost possession, Nathan Burke pounced to fire his effort into the bottom corner of the net from the edge of the 18-yard box.

With Bala on top, Henry Jones fired wide from 20 yards, while down the other end, Loveridge's half-volley went wide of the target.

Bala had a great chance to put the game to bed with three minutes of the first half remaining, but Mike Hayes volleyed over the bar.

Hayes had a big penalty shout five minutes into the second period, but instead the referee booked him for diving in the box.

Llanelli were then reduced to 10 men when Tancock picked up a second yellow card for a foul on Henry Jones after only seven minutes of the second half.

Successive chances from Jones soared over the bar and were saved by the keeper as Bala looked to stretch their lead.

However, it was game on once again when Llanelli managed to cut their deficit on the hour mark.

Ashley Morris fouled a Llanelli forward and the referee pointed to the spot.

Chris Jones slotted the penalty low into the bottom left hand corner of the net.

Bala looked to respond and a drive down the right by Andrew Burns saw him deliver a superb cross to Hayes, but his shot went wide.

Town made the points safe when they went 3-1 ahead in the 72nd minute.

Following an attack down the right, the ball found Tames, who curled home for his second goal of the afternoon.

Substitute Ian Sheridan could have added another goal to the home side's tally when his strong header was saved by the keeper, prior to him finding Jones unmarked, but the attempt flashed inches wide of the post.

Nathan Burke struck an effort over the bar from 16 yards, before Llanelli were then reduced to nine men when March was given his marching orders.

A fourth goal should have been added in Bala's favour when Tames went one-on-one with the visiting keeper, who made a fantastic save to deny the striker his hat-trick.
