Jordan Johnson

ABERAVON'S Lido may have burned down a few years ago, but the Wingmakers still enjoyed their day by the seaside, beating Afan Lido 5-1 at the Marston's Stadium.

With Bangor City and The New Saints both beaten at home, the result closes the gap on those two rivals ahead of next Friday night's home game with leaders Prestatyn Town.

The home support was boosted by around 30 members of the Tartan Army who had watched Scotland's defeat to Wales the night before, but they were soon silenced.

Wayne Riley crossed from the right and, when home keeper Chris Curtis fumbled his attempt to intercept, Jordan Johnson opened the Airbus account on his full debut with a tap-in from close range after nine minutes.

Riley was again the provider for Steve Abbott to score with another close range effort before Jack Lewis got the goal of the game, running from halfway before hitting an unstoppable 18-yarder into the top corner.

Johnson added his second before half-time, when his cross eluded Chris Budrys' heading attempt to nestle into the corner of the net.

Chris Hartland did pull one back for the home side six minutes after the break, heading home following a corner, and keeper Ben Chapman produced a reaction save to keep out a Dean Hudson header.

But sub Mike Hayes made it a nap hand for Andy Preece's men five minutes from time, chasing down a long ball before firing past Curtis.
