It was honours even in the Championship Conference as Bangor's Chris Simm cancelled out Martin Rose's opener at Port Talbot's GenQuip Stadium.

The hosts took the lead after some excellent work from skipper David Brooks down the left and his pull back to James Bloom created the chance for the predatory striker Rose to tap in on the line with half an hour played.

But the visitors came back after the break and on 56 minutes, the League's top-scorer Simm struck his 19th of his maiden Welsh Premier campaign from inside the six-yard box. The Citizens might well have won it, but sub Gary O'Toole was denied when his header, which found the back of the net, was ruled out by assistant referee Mark Gardiner for offside.

Nev Powell's side have now not won in nine games, but his side remain in third an in the hunt for Europe.

Following the game, Port Talbot boss Scott Young said; "We've probably come away a little disappointed, which shows how far we've come. After the first half, I think we edged it and probably deserved the win.

"We then conceded a poor goal by our standards but credit to Bangor, they came back."
