Stacey John-Davies gave the Swans a 20th-minute lead at Abergavenny but it wasn’t until 9 minutes from the end that Tija Richardson sealed the win with their second goal.

Port Talbot had to come behind for a 2-1 win at basement side Aberystwyth. Tania Wylde’s opener for the hosts was cancelled out by Courteney Thomas after the hour mark and 5 minutes into added time Lauren Amour netted the dramatic winner.
