A LAST-minute goal condemned Airbus to a third successive draw as they were held 1-1 at Guilsfield.

The Wingmakers took a deserved 14th-minute lead when Lewis Buckley deflected Nathan Woolfe's goalbound effort into the net and, despite struggling for fluency on a poor playing surface, Airbus continued to threaten and twice saw efforts scrambled off the line by a resilient homr defence.

After failing to capitalise, Airbus were punished in the dying stages when a long throw into the box caused panic and Robbie James' close-range strike deflected off Airbus defender Phil Clarke and into the net.

Assistant manager Andy Thomas was highly critical of the Clos Mytton surface: "There were tractor marks on the pitch and it was like playing on a farmer's field", he said.

"It wasn't much of a football match in terms of quality. Both teams were playing long balls all game because of the bobbly surface, but I still felt we should have been further ahead at half-time.

"We haven't taken our chances again and that ruthlessness is something we need to get back in our game."
