AIRBUS UK Broughton manager Craig Harrison insists it is points and not plaudits he wants from tomorrow’s trip to Caersws (2.30pm).
Harrison’s Bangor City counterpart Nev Powell lavished praise on the Wingmakers after his treble-chasers claimed a thrilling but unlikely 3-2 win over them on Friday night.
But his kind words offered little consolation to the former Middlesbrough defender.
Harrison was fuming after defensive errors and wasteful finishing allowed the 10-man visitors, trailing to a double strike from top-scorer James McIntosh, to come from behind and record their ever victory at the Airfield, in front of a season’s best crowd of 349.
Harrison, whose men are down to 14th, said: “I saw Nev Powell’s interview on S4C after the game and he said they had just beaten a very good Airbus team.
“It’s not the first time a rival manager has said that about us this season and, while it’s nice, it’s no good if you’re not picking up results.
“If we would have won the game on Friday I would have said ‘well done lads’ and that would have been it. But in the end I was absolutely fuming and I was probably as harsh on them as I have ever been.
“That’s only because I was so annoyed that we hadn’t got a result after such a good performance. It ruined my weekend and I only hope it ruined the lads’ as well.”
Harrison is promising to make changes tomorrow for a clash with an 11th-placed Caersws side that features a number of Airbus old boys.
