THE Wingmakers claimed a highly-creditable 2-2 home draw with Flintshire neighbours Connah's Quay, who were in Europa League action just two weeks ago, thanks to another super strike from Leo Riley.

Michael Wilde and Callum Morris scored the Nomads' goals but both were awarded in controversial circumstances. The Wingmakers' defence froze to appeal for a free-kick after Wilde appeared to elbow a defender in the face, but the striker was allowed to run on and score in a one-on-one with keeper Andy Coughlin after 33 minutes. The lead lasted until what proved to be the last kick of the first-half, when Aaron Bowen was brought down by ex-Airbus centre half Mike Pearson and dusted himself down to equalise from the penalty spot.

Nomads restored the lead nine minutes after the break and there appeared to be more than a hint of handball as Morris converted from a Nathan Woolfe cross.

But there was no doubt about the second Airbus equaliser as, for the second time in two games, Riley scored a superb goal, smashing a 20-yard free kick over the visitors' wall and into the roof of the net.
