DIRECTOR of football Andy Preece hailed the resilience of his high-flying Wingmakers after their 3-2 away win at Prestatyn on Friday night.

After leading 2-0 at half time, the Wingmakers were pegged back after the break before regaining their composure to secure the points thanks to Tom Field’s late penalty.

"We don’t get many penalties, so it was a good time to get one as Prestatyn is a tough place to go and get three points," Preece said.

"We could have been three or four up at half-time, but we struggled in the second half and it was probably the worst we’ve played this season.

"Credit to Prestatyn who had a real go, but we made changes ourselves, dug deep and showed a lot of character, and got back into the game in the last 15 minutes.

"It’s put us in a great position.

"We’re on 19 points and we’ve now got a six-point gap on third place."

Home boss Neil Gibson felt his side were unfortunate to lose: "Airbus are a very good team who are top of the league on merit," he said.

"Anything you get against  them has to be hard-earned,  but I felt we did enough to  deserve a win."
