Sgorio picks the five Welsh Premier League players that stood out during Matchday 5.

Esa Aalto (Cardiff Met)
After a shaky performance at Carmarthen last weekend, Aalto put in a fine display at Cyncoed on Saturday as the students managed to keep their first clean sheet since January.

Aeron Edwards (The New Saints)
Aeron Edwards secured a hat-trick against Aberystwyth on Tuesday night as the Saints put six past the visitors. The Saints were a wounded animal following their Irn Bru cup defeat against Queen’s Park, and Edwards could easily have had a fourth but his first half penalty was denied by Leigh Jenkins.

Leo Smith (Llandudno)
Llandudno have climbed out of the bottom two after winning 2-0 against Barry on Saturday with Leo Smith playing a key part in the win. The Wrexham loanee showed tremendous skill and composure to score the opener and assist the second goal for the Seasiders.

Luke Bowen (Carmarthen)
Carmarthen brought Newtown’s fine run to an end as the Old Gold claimed an impressive 3-0 home win against the Robins. Luke Bowen grabbed a brace as Carmarthen broke Newtown down with delightful crosses from wide areas.

Jamie Breese (Caernarfon)
The Cofis are now level on points with Connah’s Quay, Cardiff Met and Bala Town following their 0-1 win at Deeside Stadium. Striker Jamie Breese showed his pace and power before smashing in the only goal of the game to seal the points for the Canaries.
