The hosts led thanks to Thomas' early brace before Ben Jones reduced the arrears early in the second-half for United.

Andy Ford twice glanced over from good positions, before subsitute Aaron Edwards flicked home Stuart Rogers' right wing cross to complete the scoring.

Meanwhile Borth United maintained their Spar Mid Wales League Two title bid with a 2-0 win over Aberystwyth University courtesy of goals from Ryan Davies and Liam Berner.
