Football: Griffiths sinks poor Aber; WELSH PREMIER Aberystwyth Town 0 Port Talbot Town 3.

A RHYS GRIFFITHS hat-trick inspired Port Talbot to a comprehensive victory as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

Poor Aber defending left Griffiths free to head home the first after 10 minutes and he then again rose above the defence to head in a free-kick at the far post.

It could have been worse for the home side just before half time but Chris Pridham's close range header was ruled out for offside.

Aber worked hard in the second half but barely troubled the resilient visitors and the issue was settled 20 minutes from time, Griffiths firing home from inside the penalty area.

Big defender Aneurin Thomas came on as an emergency centre forward but was unable to gain even a consolation for an Aberystwyth side that find themselves in a tightly-packed group of clubs close to the drop zone, while Port Talbot's success saw them move up to fifth.

ABER: R Morgan, Burrows, Meredith, James, Driscoll, Hughes, Hicks, B Morgan, S roberts, Sherbon, Coates (Thomas 73).

Subs (not used): Evans, Goodrich.

PORT TALBOT: Williams, Cockings, M Jones, Hanford, Rees, Surman, Pridham (Hooper 83), Phillips, Griffiths (Pearson 83), John, James (De Vulgt 87
