Port Talbot 2-1 Airbus UK Broughton 11 April 09
THE Wingmakers crashed
to their fifth Welsh Premier League defeat on the run yesterday.
Craig Harrisonís men
scored their first goal in nearly seven hours to break the deadlock in
an evenly-contested clash, but the hosts hit back to take the points.
The visitors, whose
football at times was a delight, started well enough and it was no
surprise when the recalled Tom Rowlands turned smartly in the box and
rifled a drive underneath Portís Chester-born goalkeeper Kristian
Rogers in the 17th minute.
Former Wrexham stopper
Rogers then redeemed himself with two fine saves before Karl Lewis
levelled the contest nine minutes before the break with an excellent
near-post header from a free kick.
That boosted the
Steelmen and they notched the winner 15 minutes from time when the
increasingly dangerous Lee John crossed for hitman Martin Rose to nod in
his 21st league strike of the season.
Airbus swarmed forward
in search of an equaliser but again they were denied by Rogers.
