 The Wingmakers - Match Report



Airbus UK Broughton 0-1 Carmarthen Town

A GOAL direct from a corner settled a scrappy encounter at a windy Airfield on Saturday.

In difficult conditions, Airbus had their chances with the influential Ryan Edwards rounding Carmarthen goalkeeper Alex Evans but missing the target in the 22nd minute.

The high-flying visitors also went close before the break when a Liam Hancock header was scrambled off the line.

Both sides continued to battle manfully in the second period, but it was the Old Gold who made it nine wins from their 10 Welsh Premier League meetings with the Wingmakers when Stuart Roberts’ left-wing corner curled into the top corner in the 63rd minute.

Then more disaster struck for the hosts with keeper Chris Doran carried off following a goalmouth clash and a long delay. Striker James McIntosh took the gloves but remained strangely untroubled during the remainder of a finely balanced match.

Indeed, Airbus missed a great chance when Matty Cook blazed just over in the 75th minute.

Carmarthen coach Mark Aizlewood, former number two to Ian Rush at Chester City, was full of praise for the Wingmakers.

“We were very poor first half,” he said. “We didn’t have enough people who were prepared to do the ugly things and were probably hiding behind the conditions a bit.

“But we also have to give Airbus some credit. I thought that was the best Airbus team there has been in my time in the league. They are in the highest position that they have ever been and they made it difficult for us.”

AIRBUS: Doran (Rowlands 70), Edwards, Feliciello, Woodward, Sudlow, Allen, Williams, Desormeaux, Molyneux, McIntosh, Cook (Kilgannon 85).

BOOKED: Molyneux.
