DANIEL Jefferies headed in a last gasp winner for Penybont against an injury-depleted Airbus.

With injuries keeping first and second choice keepers, Dave Roberts and Brendan Hazlett out of action, academy product Lewis Hall also fell victim to injury leaving the gloves to defender Sam Hart, who performed admirably and produced a couple of exceptional saves befitting a natural stopper.

Despite Bont dominating possession in the opening minutes, the hosts yielded the first opportunity from a corner six minutes in. Kristian Platt rose above his marker in the box, but his header rattled the post and rebounded to safety.

With 22 minutes on the clock, academy product George Peers marked his Cymru Premier debut by rifling a shot into the top corner from 25-yards. The Welshman thought he had a second shortly after but was adjudged offside by the officials.

Bont went close to equalising when Curtis Jemmett-Hutson raced through on goal one-on-one but sliced his effort wide. But the visitors were back on level terms in the 37th-minute when a perfectly weighted cross from the byline found Keenan Patten unmarked and he powered his header into the corner.

It took until the hour mark for the first meaningful attempt by either outfit. Nathan Woods produced a great piece of skill on the flank, but his shot deflected harmlessly over the Airbus crossbar.

Ten minutes later, Penybont substitution, Kostya Georgievsky almost made an instant impact when his volley from close range whistled past the woodwork.

Hart looked like he had earned the Wingmakers a draw when he showed reflexes of the highest quality by first tipping Georgievsky’s effort onto the bar before pouncing on the rebound.

But, in the 88th minute, Jefferies jumped highest in the box and nodded into the net for the winner.
