ANDREW THOMAS was pleased to see Airbus’s belief rewarded with a point against Cardiff Met.

Unbeaten Met went in-front just before the half an hour mark through Eliot Evans’ penalty, but Airbus grabbed a share of the spoils as Jordan Evans struck.

The goal has officially gone down as an own goal from Joel Edwards, but Airbus assistant Thomas was just happy to have grabbed a point.

“At 1-0 down you only need one chance and we always tell the players that the chance could come in the final minute or two,” said Thomas.

“Teams get nervous late on and you just need to take the chance when you get on - we were able to do that.”

And Thomas felt Airbus were good value for a point against Christian Edwards’ Archers.

“Definitely,” declared Thomas when asked whether his side deserved at least a point from proceedings.

“There was nothing really in the game, which was played between two evenly matched teams.

“What was pleasing was our defence, which was outstanding. We didn’t concede last week against Carmarthen and we didn’t concede from open play against Cardiff Met.

“We defended set-plays brilliantly and it was a solid performance.”

Next up for Airbus is a trip to reigning champions The New Saints on Saturday.

Penybont were left thanking Kostya Georgievsky after his last minute effort earned a 1-1 draw with visiting Aberystwyth.

A goal from former Wrexham and Chester man Wes Baynes had given Aberystwyth a lead six minutes into the second period.

But Georgievsky secured a fifth point of the campaign for Rhys Griffiths’ side in the dying stages.
