....the final half an hour with ten-men in a niggly affair at Farrar Road. Indiscipline is again a problem for the Seasiders as they picked-up their third red card in as many games following the 64th minute dismissal of Sion James, his second sending-off this season.
In a first half of few chances, Chris Jones brought a good save from visiting keeper Steven Cann, and home keeper Lee Idzi made an even better save to deny Lewis Codling.
Andy Parkinson had almost opened the scoring for the Black & Greens with a shot from a tight angle which hit the far post and rebounded to safety.
But Aber finally broke the deadlock shortly after half-time with a net move involving Craig Williams and Codling well-finished by Anthony Finselbach, who was injured as he slid the ball under Idzi and forced-off.
The Citizens were level amost immediately when Peter Hoy's long throw was volleyed home from the edge of the box by Sion Edwards, but the ten-men defended doggedly, with Cann making a good late stop from Hoy's powerful shot. In the day's other game, Bala Town went top of the table with a 2-0 win at Newtown.
The Robins held their own until the 81st minute when substitute Stephen Brown beat keeper Neil Thomas to a cross to open the Lakesiders' account.
And the hosts were caught again following a corner in the 89th minute with Chris Mason sealing the win.
