This was a dire affair. A poor Druids side that ran their socks off to drag Airbus down to their level and The Wingmakers yet again showing an infuriating inability to take control of a match that was theirs for the taking.
After a bright opening Marc Lloyd Williams broke his goal drought by heading home unchallenged from a left wing cross. For the first fifteen minutes it had looked a question of how many but by the time the half hour mark had arrived The 'Bus had become ragged and disjointed, verging on the inept.
The second half wasn't much better and ten minutes in Druids showed their own ineptitude, Rowlands & Whitfield failing to capitalise on Mark Allen's slip up to waste the chance of an equaliser when either could have scored. It was always ominous that referee Andy Harms was given control of the game and sure enough he took a crucial hand in completely ignoring a blatant shove in Carl Owen's back when Carlo had a free header in the area. Notwithstanding the myopic Airbus-hater's strange interpretation this should have been a minor chuckle point rather than a crucial decision as several chances came in the final half hour, wasted with a mixture of lack of aim and allowing young floppy-haired 'keeper Chris Mullock to comfortably save.
In time added on a Druids corner was allowed to be converted from close in, Penlington being allowed to head in virtually on the line by a disgraceful & unforgivable piece of lax and naive defending.
If Airbus have serious aspirations of competing in the Super Twelve then teams like this need to be dispatched with ease. Another idea might be to actually get the ball on target; it's neither clever nor productive to consistently shoot just wide. Merry b....y Christmas.
