MARK Aizlewood was a contented man after his Carmarthen Town side completed a double over high-flyers Airbus UK Broughton.

The 2-1 victory was a repeat of the score from the Old Gold’s second match of the season at The Airfield and lifted the Richmond Park outfit clear of the relegation zone.

"Airbus are, without question, the best team we have played this season," said Aizlewood.

"Andy Preece, the Airbus manager, and his assistant Andy Morrison, are both doing an excellent job up there.  

"For us to take six points from them in the two games is a magnificent achievement for my club and I believe that no other team in the league will be able to achieve this feat during the season.

"While I am obviously delighted with the points, it was the nature of the victory and the performance of the players for the full 90 minutes which gives me so much optimism for the future."

Liam Thomas, who scored the Old Gold's stoppage time winner back in August, was again the scourge of the Wingmakers scoring both goals either side of Steve Abbott's equaliser.

We are still in trouble at the bottom of the table and I will be reminding the players of this during training.

"We have, at times, nurtured  Liam this season, putting him in and out of the team," Aizelwood added.

"This is the right thing to do with a young player learning the game. 

"Sometimes it would have been easier to play him week in, week out, as we have had to play the season so far without a senior centre forward mostly due to the injury to Craig Hughes."

However despite hailing four good performances in recent games, Aizlewood sounded a note of caution: "We are still in trouble at the bottom of the table and I will be reminding the players of this during training. 

"The minute that a player or group of players think they have ‘cracked it,’ football has an unerring habit of kicking you squarely in the teeth."
