Tuesday’s result was pretty emphatic in favour of the Albion, who bounced back from Saturday’s 4-2 loss at Mold Alexandra.

Yet it was Saints who struck first on 20 minutes, Dan Williams with a driving run before setting up his brother James Williams to slide home.

Albion responded positively, Joe Carey Jr breaking into the box but denied by a save from Finn Kulavuz.

In the 26th minute the visitors were level, Dan Evans applying the finish.

Kulavuz saved superbly from Kyle Robb before Albion edged in front after 33 minutes, Calum Jones this time the scorer.

James Williams had a chance to level it, but Will Williams thwarted him with a great stop.

Asaph started the second half well but to no avail as in the 58th minute a screamer from Jack Atherton made it 3-1.

Kulavuz produced a fine save from Carey before Harri Jones added a fourth for the visitors in injury time.
