Sgorio picks the five players that stood out over the weekend.

Lee Idzi (Carmarthen)
Lee Idzi produced some smart saves as Carmarthen kept a clean sheet against in-form Cardiff Met on Saturday (Met failed to score for the first time since November). The Old Gold are now only three points behind the students in the race for the play-offs.

Darren Thomas (Caernarfon)
The Cofi Messi provided the two assists as Caernarfon won 2-0 against league leaders Barry Town on Saturday. Thomas set off on one of his trademark runs before threading the ball perfectly to Sion Bradley for the opening goal, and with the Caernarfon no.10 back to his best the Cofis have lost only once in their last 12 outings.

Nathan Craig (Caernarfon)
The Caernarfon captain got his 12th goal of the campaign on Saturday, but he will have especially enjoyed this one as it was his first goal from open play (8 penalties, 3 free kicks). The left-back is currently 4th in this season’s WPL top scorer chart.

Geoff Kellaway (Aberystwyth)
Aberystwyth closed the gap on Cardiff Met in the race for the play-offs after picking up a point at home to Llandudno on Friday night. Aber needed a sweet strike from veteran striker Geoff Kellaway to avoid an eighth consecutive defeat.

Michael Wilde (Connah’s Quay)
Michael Wilde was a constant threat in the air against Newtown on Saturday and eventually got his reward in the 78th minute as he headed in the winning goal to bring the Robins’ unbeaten run at Latham Park to an end. Michael Wilde’s 176th WPL goal sent the Nomads back to the table, and he is now only one goal behind Chris Summers who is 3rd in the list of all time WPL top scorers.
