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
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.”
