THE Wingmakers produced a stunning second-half comeback to defeat Aberystwyth Town 4-2 and stave-off the drop for another week at least.

Knowing that defeat would mean automatic relegation, Airbus found themselves two goals down to the Seasiders within the first 22 minutes. Geoff Kellaway got a touch on a Luke Borrelli shot to open the scoring in the 10th-minute before Mark Jones, so often an Airbus tormentor in the past, prodded home the second after Phil Baker had crossed from a corner.

The hosts were gifted a toehold in the game eight minutes before the break when keeper Chris Mullock dropped the ball at the feet of Ryan J Edwards, who netted to reduce the arrears. Parity was restored straight after half-time from a corner which the visitors failed to defend and Steve Tomassen grabbed his first goal since returning to Airbus in January.

There was a long break in play after keeper Shaun Pearson was injured and then stretchered-off to be replaced by Ryan Neild before Mullock redeemed himself with a superb save to deny Airbus. But two goals inside three minutes settled the contest as Ryan J Edwards curled a cross straight into the far corner of the net and then Jonny Spittle, returning from a long injury lay-off, scored following a corner.

Airbus were now in control but were forced to endure nine minutes of added time before claiming the spoils and reducing the gap at the foot of the table to six points with four games remaining.
