AIRBUS UK Broughton moved a big step closer to sealing their place in the Welsh Premier League’s ‘Super 12’ with a 1-0 win over neighbours Gap Connah’s Quay at a rainy Deeside Stadium on Friday night.
Jack Abraham picked the perfect moment to break his Wingmakers duck as his 69th-minute strike settled a Flintshire derby that will not live long in the memory.
And what a strike it was as the highly-rated young midfielder picked up possession in the middle of the park before driving forward and letting rip with a shot that took a deflection to give Terry McCormick no chance.
Had it not been for McCormick Airbus would have won by more with the Nomads goalkeeper twice denying the hard-working James McInotsh the goal he deserved.
McIntosh’s strike-partner Marc Lloyd Williams also saw chances come and go as Craig Harrison’s men cruised to a victory over a Nomads side seemingly jaded from their Neath heroics of three days earlier.
Indeed, not once did they look like breaking down the rock-solid Wingmakers who have developed one of the league’s most resolute defences. This was their seventh clean sheet in nine matches.
Airbus, who hosted Bangor City last night in a match that took place after The Chronicle went to press, return to action a week on Saturday.
