AIRBUS won three crucial points at the expense of fellow strugglers Carmarthen Town thanks to Andy Owens' first-half goal.

Goalkeeper Dave Roberts was forced to pull out after being injured in the warm-up to be replaced by Under-19s' gloveman Lewis Hall, who kept a courageous clean sheet on his top flight debut.

The Wingmakers took the lead when Owens harried defender Jordan Vickers into a mistake before tucking the ball beyond a stranded Lee Idzi in the Town goal. That was one of few chances in a generally scrappy affair which saw Alex Darlington lob over the target, Ryan Edwards miss a golden second-half chance and Owens fire another effort over the bar.

Hall was forced to make one diving save late in the game but was otherwise rarely troubled.

"It wasn't as good a performance football-wise than we've produced this season," said assistant manager Andy Thomas. "But we proved we can do the other side of the game by keeping a clean sheet."

"It was our first clean sheet of the season and Lewis got it but I can't remember Carmarthen having a shot on target, so the defence stood up to the challenge.

"Whether the defence was of the mindset to protect Lewis or not, they defended outstandingly well for the whole game."
