NEWTOWN keeper Dave Jones took the plaudits after denying Llangefni with an impressive display at Latham Park.
The Anglesey visitors are still looking for their first points of the campaign, but should have had something to show for their efforts after dominating for long spells.
But Jones stood in their way with a string of fine saves.
“He’s only 17 and has got a bright future ahead of him,” admitted assistant manager Mike Davies.
“We had a few players struggling, but Dave was the difference between three points and a draw, or possibly losing the game.
“It was tough on Llangefni, but there have been times when we’ve played well and got nothing.”
The Robins made a flying start with the predatory Marc Lloyd Williams netting twice in the first 10 minutes, taking his tally to six goals for the season, following some good work on the flank by Mattie Lewis.
But the hosts struggled to build on that, their plans hampered by the loss of defender Hugh Clarke with a neck injury, while a number of other players failed to make any impression on the proceedings.
Llangefni took charge with Chris Jones pulling one back just before half time with a well taken goal and the Anglesey men pressed for a leveller. But there was no way past Jones for a second time, with the keeper making some fine saves to earn the Robins the victory despite his side’s shaky second-half showing.
