ANDY Preece was pleased to take three points away from Prestatyn Town on Saturday on what he described as a difficult Bastion Gardens surface.

"It's a difficult place to come always, Prestatyn, they get some good results here and with the weather the way it was it was hot and sticky," said the Wingmakers' director of football.

"The pitch was hard and bobbly, we had to play to the conditions, there wasn't much football played, it was difficult to get the ball down.

"It was more of a percentage game of football, not nice to watch, not nice to play in, the big thing for us was to get three points and that's what we did."

But home boss Neil Gibson bemoaned his side's luck.

“I'm disappointed with the result I don't like to lose games of football," he said.

"I felt it was a lot better performance than last week's second half against Newtown and on a different day we could have taken something out of the game.

"There were a couple of decisions that could have gone in our favour but did not - we had a couple of penalty shouts and whether the goal keeper got a yellow or a red card for bringing Pritchard down in the penalty area - such border line decisions did not go in our favour today.

“The lads kept battling away today and I did not think the was much in the game but unfortunately an experienced Airbus team found a way of getting themselves over the line to bag the three points."
