DESPITE producing a generally lack-lustre performance, Airbus scored two late goals to defeat bottom club Holyhead Hotspur 2-0 at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium, extending their winning sequence to 14 games.
Lewis Buckley missed a great chance to open the scoring in the early exchanges when he fired over the target with only keeper Dan Williams to beat while, at the other end, a corner nearly produced a goal for the visitors with the ball cleared off the line.
Asa Hamilton fired wide and Steve Tomassen sent a shot well over the bar as the first half ended in stalemate. After the break, Joe Palmer sent a 35-yarder wide and Buckley fired straight at the keeper, who then produced a diving save to keep out a Curtis Strong 25-yarder.
Hamilton headed wide from a Strong cross and Williams made another excellent save to deny Kristian Platt before the breakthrough finally arrived on 77 minutes. Strong made good inroads down the byline before cutting the ball back for Hamilton who drew a reflex save from Williams, but the ball rebounded to Leo Riley who drove into the corner from just outside the box.
A replica cross from Strong found Ryan Edwards whose shot was saved and Tomassen headed over an inviting target from a Riley corner before, in the final minute, sub Joe Chaplin secured the three points.
