THE New Saints’ club record 12 match winning run came to an end at Park Hall and boss Ken McKenna admitted his side did not do enough to justify the three points.
“We didn’t deserve to win the game, our attitude was not good enough in the first half,” he said.
“Airbus were superb, their concentration and discipline was excellent and they could have been a couple of goals up at half time.”
It proved a frustrating afternoon for the league leaders who lacked any real cutting edge to break down the visitors who got men behind the ball.
While defending in resolute fashion, the Wingmakers were also quick on the break with Paul Hallows having a header well saved by keeper Paul Harrison, who also denied Phil Molineux when through.
Chris King and Carl Lamb had gone closest at the other end, but the game ended prematurely for King who was red-carded for aiming foul and abusive language at fussy referee Paul Thomas three minutes before the break.
TNS looked more incisive in the second period with substitutes Luke Holden and Alfie Carter both going close to breaking the stalemate while at the other end substitute James McIntosh was foiled low down by Harrison.
The Saints could have nicked it in injury time when Carter headed against the bar, but Airbus were not to be denied a deserved share of the spoils.
The draw now means that TNS share pole position with Llanelli.
