Airbus UK Broughton: Wingmakers slip to ninth consecutive winless game after Carmarthen Town loss

AIRBUS UK Broughton’s poor start to the season has seen them slump to the bottom of the Welsh Premier .

Another sub-par performance on Saturday at fellow strugglers Carmarthen Town resulted in a disappointing 3-1 loss.

The result means the Wingmakers are now winless after nine games this season.

Their latest defeat, against a side Airbus would normally have expected to overcome , will put added pressure on manager Craig Harrison.

Harrison’s men had a poor end to their last Welsh Premier League campaign and have notched up just one win in their last 16 competitive matches.

Airbus got off to the perfect start against Carmarthen at Richmond Park when defender Ryan Edwards found the net after 16 minutes. But the Wingmakers’ advantage was wiped out just six minutes later when Adam Worton put through his own goal while under pressure from the Carmarthen attack force.

The Old Gold then took the lead 10 minutes from the break with the best goal of the game.

Nick Harrhy thundered a 25-yard free kick past goalkeeper Niki-Lee Bulmer in the visitors’ goal.

A penalty from Tim Hicks just before half time extended Carmarthen’s advantage and in truth they were full value for their lead.

Following the interval, the South Walians threatened to increase their stranglehold on the game as two of their efforts rattled the woodwork.

Veteran striker Andy Moran was introduced for Airbus just after the break in place of Mike Hayes, but despite having two opportunities, he couldn’t reduce the deficit.

The result gave Carmarthen manager Tomi Morgan and his side a much-needed confidence boost but the gloom still lies with the Wingmakers.

Airbus are next in action on Sunday, when they will entertain next-to-bottom Newtown at the Airfield (2.30pm).

The crunch match between the two current basement sides could be a deciding factor in whether the Wingmakers can go on to have a realistic hope of aiming for their pre-season target of a top-six league slot or if they are to become embroiled in a relegation battle.
