AIRBUS completed a league double over Caersws with a 2-0 victory away at the Recreation Ground to remain in second place in the Huws Gray Alliance.

A Lance Jones own goal handed the Wingmakers the lead midway through the first half and the second goal arrived two minutes after the break via an Alfons Fosu-Mensah penalty.

Fosu-Mensah dragged wide for Airbus in the opening five minutes but soon it was Caersws enjoying the early possession. Richard Davies linked well with Aron Hughes-Jones whose 16th minute shot forced goalkeeper Dave Roberts into a low save but it was Airbus who broke the deadlock on 28 minutes with Fosu-Mensah’s header coming back off the post and deflected into his own net by Lance Jones.

The Wingmakers ended the half strongly with James Hooper testing home goalkeeper David Jones from 30 yards before Ryan Edwards rounded the Bluebirds' stopper only for his shot to be blocked on the line by Ryan Davies.

The second-half could not have begun worse for the hosts with Elliot Jones adjudged to have impeded Abou Sanago on the by line with Fosu-Mensah converting the resulting spot kick.

Caersws looked to get back in the game with Elliot Jones crossing for Richard Davies whose headed effort was saved by Roberts. Bluebirds' substitute Nefen Savage looked to stretch the visiting defence and set up Davies who once again tested Roberts in the Airbus goal.

But it was Airbus who should have added to their tally with 15 minutes remaining with Ryan Davies adjudged to have fouled Hooper in the area only for Jones to save Sanogo’s penalty.

Caersws continued to toil for the remainder of the match with Richard Davies, Craig Harris and Lance Jones all testing their luck but Roberts continued to comfortably guard the Airbus goal to ensure the three points.
