Airbus UK Broughton 2-0 Aberystwyth Town (February 6 2010)

Aberystwyth came to Airbus with every intent of getting a win after being turfed out of the Cup by Port Talbot. By half time, however, despite the distraction of an enormous Beluga manoeuvring behind the runway end The' Bus had killed their fire and in the second half served up an impressively competent performance to take the victory themselves.
With Aber looking enthusiastic from the start, Marc Lloyd-Williams wasted a chance to sting them early on, shooting over the bar with plenty of time to steady himself. Jack Abraham, who was to have an outstanding afternoon down the right flank, shortly after actually hit the bar with one he set up from outside the area that bounced back into play. At the other end Mark Allen contrived an amazing clearance, hoofing the ball onto his head and rebounding over his own goal to much snickering by both teams. Much more seriously the giant Aneurin Thomas rose to meet another corner at the far post to send a firm header just wide with Kristian Rogers rooted. Jiws was next up with a series of chances; a well-hit shot comfortably saved by Cann and then slipping his man but screwing wide before heading a Jack Abraham flick gently into Cann's arms and finally getting through on a one-on-one but allowing the 'keeper to clear.
The second half was all Airbus and for once there was an air of steel and a feel of belief in themselves that this one wasn't going to slip away. They still needed the goal, though, to kick start it and it arrived via a searing low cross from Giovanni Feliciello, stabbed in by Carl Owen. Gio looped over another one after carrying the ball down the wing that hit the top of the goal and went over with Cann in trouble. Down the left wing ran Carl Owen past this marker, lofted over a graceful cross and there was Lloyd-Williams to twist in the air and send a beautiful header gliding inside the far post for the killer second. Not only that but his thirteenth goal of the campaign set a new record for number of goals in a season for an Airbus player in the Welsh Premier and there are still fifteen games to go! Jack Abraham teed a shot up for himself, saved low down and Aber had their best chance of the half, Ryan Fraughan curling a great shot past Rogers but also the wrong side of the post. Airbus had the final say, Gio's corner flicked by Carlo and turned spectacularly one-handed over by Steve Cann. The remaining minutes ticked by without the familiar anguished clock-watching, the points safely in the bag.
