AIRBUS UK Broughton boss Craig Harrison admits Friday’s Flintshire derby draw with Gap Connah’s Quay was a case of two points dropped.
A record 303 Airfield crowd for a clash between the neighbours failed to inspire either side, with the only real chances of the 0-0 stalemate coming early on and right at the death.
Wingmakers midfielder Danny Desormeaux was twice denied by Wales Under 19s goalkeeper Chris Maxwell in the first five minutes before striker Tommy Mutton blazed over for the visitors in injury time after centre-back Andy Alston had clipped the crossbar from distance.
Harrison, whose 12th-placed side head to an eighth-placed Carmarthen team without a win in four tomorrow (2.30pm), said: “We had two great chances early on but unfortunately we couldn’t take them, which you really have to in those type of games.
“I was disappointed because I thought we were the better team for the first and last 20 minutes, with the rest of the game fairly even, although the Quay did have a good spell after half-time.
“We’ve got another tough game on Saturday, but Carmarthen are not in a rich vein of form so it’s a good chance for us to go down there and come back with at least a point.”
Harrison, who will be in the dugout tomorrow before his two-match touchline ban for being sent to the stands in last month’s controversial defeat at Llanelli kicks in, has a full-strength squad to choose from other than long-term injury victim Jon Slater.
Midfielder Wes Kilgannon, who won Harrison’s praise after an impressive cameo appearance from the bench against his former club Nomads, is in line for a starting berth.
