NATHAN PEATE came back to haunt Cefn Druids as his stoppage time strike handed Bala Town a 2-1 home win.

The central defender, pictured was on hand to bundle the ball home in the 91st minute and make it a losing start for former club Druids, who he left in the summer.

Peate’s winner came a minute after Anthony Kay had seen red for Bala, who opened the scoring in the 29th minute through Will Evans.

The former Cardiff Met attacker was delighted to grab his first goal for the Lakesiders, tweeting: “Happy to open the account for @BalaTownFC. Big three points!”

Evans’ opener was cancelled out by Druids’ Naim Arsan, who spotted a gap in the Bala defence and ventured forward before sending a low striker under Alex Ramsey in the home side’s goal.

But Druids first competitive game under new head coach Bruno Lopes ended in defeat as Peate netted, and worse was to follow for the Ancients as substitute Aaron Simpson saw red in the eighth minute of stoppage time.

The New Saints bounced back from their Europa League heartbreak to beat Cardiff Met 2-0 at Park Hall.

Adrian Cieslewicz pounced on a loose ball to break the deadlock for Scott Ruscoe’s Saints, who were beaten 5-4 on penalties by B36 Torshavn on Wednesday.

And the three points were wrapped up on the hour mark as Liam Black put through his own net, before the Archers’ Bradley Woolridge was sent-off in stoppage time.
