BALA Town ended the weekend tied on 13 points with bottom duo Port Talbot and Afan Lido after a 2-1 Friday night defeat at Airbus UK Broughton.

But manager Colin Caton felt his side deserved more from the game: "I'm really disappointed, when we equalised I never thought we were going to lose it," he said.

"I thought we bossed the second half and I couldn't really see their second goal but it looked a bit scrappy.

"They've been ruthless in our 18-yard box, the ball's fallen to them twice and they've rifled it in and that's the difference on the day, but I'm really pleased with the way we approached the game and worked our socks off and we should have got something out of it, it's the same old story really.

"Their first goal was a bit of luck, it hit the back post high up and it's gone straight to them which is a bit harsh.

"I thought we were the best team playing with the wind, but we've got to convert our possession. A good performance isn't a result, that's the fine line.

"We're improving week in week out, we've turned the corner and I think we should have won the game today."

The Lakesiders also thought they were denied a second equaliser by an assistant's flag and Caton added: "Kenny (Lunt) said he was definitely on-side when it was played but we all see it differently.

"We'll see it on Sgorio and hopefully if the linesman's made a mistake he'll ring up like I ring referees up and apologise."

The Wingmakers' director of football Andy Preece was delighted with the win: "It's a huge three points, we've had an unbelievable week," he said.

"When we set out at the start of the week with the players that we had available, to get seven points out of nine is probably the best week we've had as a management team and as a group, probably since I've been managing.

"We were struggling so badly with players out of position and playing injured so it's a nice result, it's fantastic.

"The same lads have played the last three games and they are absolutely shattered," Preece went on.

"Hopefully a couple of injuries will clear up and we have a couple back from suspension so we'll be that much stronger going into the five or six games before the split."
