Sgorio picks the five Welsh Premier League stars that stood out over the past week.

Chris Mullock (Aberystwyth)
Despite losing at home to Bala Town on Friday night, Chris Mullock put in a fine performance for the Seasiders. The Aber keeper made numerous acrobatic stops before saving Chris Venables’ spot kick in the second half to keep his side in the game.

Nathan Peate (Cefn Druids)
Nathan Peate netted his third goal of the season on Sunday as the Druids picked up a good point away against Cardiff Met. The Ancients’ centre-half has been involved in six goals this season (3 goals, 3 assists), and has contributed directly to more goals than any of his team-mates. Cefn Druids are only the second team to get a result away at Cyncoed this season following Met’s goalless draw with TNS back in September.

Tom Goodwin (Newtown)
Tom Goodwin scored his first WPL goal since January 2015 when he made the most of a delightful pass from James Murphy to put Newtown ahead against Barry on Saturday. Goodwin went on to assist Luke Boundford’s strike in added time as the Robins made it back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.

Steven Hewitt (Bangor City)
Bangor City have sneaked back into title contention after their win away at Connah’s Quay on Friday which leaves them only two points from the top. Steven Hewitt scored a sweet free kick in the first half – his fourth goal this season, his third from outside the box.

Mike Hayes (Bala Town)
Bala stretched their unbeaten run to six games with a 2-1 win away at Aberystwyth on Friday night. Mike Hayes got his side’s two goals, and also won a penalty for Bala after a strong, determined run, but Chris Venables couldn’t beat his ex-teammate Chris Mullock from the spot.
