MANAGER Mike Barton admits some of his players need to up the ante after Caersws continue to languish in relegation danger following this sorry show.
A catalogue of poor defending handed Llanelli the chances and they took full advantage to move two points clear at the top of the table.
“I don’t think some of our players realise we are in a relegation battle,” said Barton. “We were sloppy and half hearted and back to the way we were in the first three weeks of the season.
“Llanelli did not have to work for the goals and, although we were better in the second half, not enough players were prepared to roll up their sleeves and dig in.”
Despite being without the league’s top scorer Rhys Griffiths, the visitors sounded a couple of early warnings before taking the lead in the 15th minute when a Craig Jones corner found Craig Williams who converted at the near post.
Mark Jones doubled the lead five minutes later when firing home at the second attempt from 12 yards after the defence had stood off.
There was no way back once Williams had added his second seven minutes before the interval following a poor clearance from Andrew Thomas.
Some sloppy defending presented Llanelli with a fourth goal on 53 minutes when Stephen Evans slotted home after hesitant keeper Andy Mulliner had failed to deal with a back header on the edge of the box.
Evans competed the rout eight minutes from time, the ball being played into his path on the edge of the box and his first-time effort found the right hand corner.
Caersws struggled to carve many openings in a lacklustre showing, with one of their best efforts coming when a Mark Davies free kick was saved by keeper Ryan Harrison before being cleared off the line by Gary Lloyd.
