BALA Town's poor run of form continued as they ended their Cymru Premier League campaign with a 2-1 loss at Cardiff Met.

The Lakesiders failed to win any of their matches after the league split into two to end the campaign and they're now on a 12-match winless sequence in the top flight, stretching back to the 3-0 triumph at home to Pontypridd United on January 7.

There was an even opening to the contest, with little in the way of opportunities during the early stages.

Bala keeper Harri Lloyd was called into action with an 11th minute save, while Cardiff Met managed to get their noses in front after half-an-hour.

Elliot Evans' close range effort found the corner of the net.

Lloyd had to make another decent save as the half developed, before the home side doubled their lead four minutes prior to the interval.

Matt Chubb made it 2-0 following a corner.

However, Chubb's day got even more dramatic when he was sent off midway through the second half after a challenge on Naim Arsan.

Bala players were shouting for a penalty when Paul Rutherford looked to have been fouled in the box and the Lakesiders did pull a goal back with 10 minutes remaining.

Nathan Burke's shot was deflected into the net by Luke Wall.

Just minutes later and the visitors won a penalty, but Dave Edwards' spot kick was saved.

Then, Cardiff Met were down to nine men with the dismissal of Chris Craven after a tackle on Ollie Southerm.

Southern had to be stretchered off after receiving treatment for more than five minutes.
