AIRBUS were relegated from the Welsh Premier League after a 12-year stint as they went down to a 2-1 defeat at Rhyl's Belle Vue.

After dominating the first half, the Wingmakers took the lead soon after the break when Steve Tomassen forced home a Glenn Rule free-kick at the far post. Survival hopes lasted until the 78th-minute when Chris Rimmer levelled from a left wing corner, and the visitors' fate was sealed two minutes from time when sub Steve Lewis converted from a right wing cross.

The victory boosted the Lilywhites' own survival hopes, lifting then out of the drop zone and above Aberystwyth Town, who they meet next Friday.

Also in the bottom six, Cefn Druids' safety was almost ensured with a 1-1 draw at Newtown, Ashley Ruane scoring for the visitors, with Jason Oswell responding for the Robins who still lead the race for the Play-Offs.

Already assured of a place in Europe, Bala Town were held to a 1-1 home draw by Carmarthen Town, who took the lead with a Liam Thomas penalty just before half-time, but Mike Hayes equalised in the 54th-minute.
