ANDY Preece hailed Saturday's victory over Aberystwyth as "a fantastic win particularly the circumstances of it".

"I felt like we were going to get mugged again by Aberystwyth - in our two games earlier in the season we feel like we've been really hard done by," said the Wingmakers' director of football. 

"We dominated this game again like we had the other two and it looked like we weren't going to get anything which would have been an absolute travesty.

"We got our rewards in the end, if we keep making them make mistakes then ultimately a decision is going to go our way.

"There's a lot of evidence that we could have had four or five penalties and if they are penalties, they are penalties, it doesn't matter how many.

"But fortunately we've managed to keep our compusure and go and win the game."

Preece was puzzled to be sent to the stands by match official Dean John and commented: "I swore shouting across at one of my players but I didn't swear at the referee."

The win leaves Airbus two points behind the third placed Seasiders and Preece added: "That's a huge win for us, it puts us right behind Aberystwyth and it's going to hurt them conceding so late on and losing Venables. 

"I heard he may have said something to the referee so he may get even more than just the one game so to lose a player like that might really hurt them."
