 The Wingmakers - Match Report



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.
