AIRBUS were left to rue controversial penalty decisions for the second game in a row as they crashed to a 3-1 defeat at Cefn Druids.

After falling behind to an early Cody Ruberto headed goal, the Wingmakers battled back into contention and levelled through former Druid Jordan Evans, who netted at the second attempt after his initial attempt was parried by keeper Mike Jones and returned by both Ryan Edwards and Matty Sargent.

But an innocuous clash in the box led to the award of a penalty against Steve Tomassen, concerted by Alex Mudimu, and things got worse for Airbus either side of the break.

Andy Owens was forced off with a nasty head wound which required hospital treatment and increasing frustration with referee Tom Owen led to a second yellow for Curtis Strong.

The Wingmakers felt aggrieved by several decisions including a declined penalty for a handball, and the game was sealed when Nathan Peate headed home from a corner.

“I can’t wait for the head of refereeing to come in,” said assistant manager Andy Thomas, who was equally frustrated by Bala’s penalty in the opening night 2-1 defeat 10 days ago. “He was supposed to come in before the season, but we weren’t able to sort it out, so we are looking forward to seeing him.

“Decisions are costing us at the moment and the lads are getting frustrated.”
