DIRECTOR of football Andy Preece hailed the resilience of his high-flying Wingmakers after their 3-2 away win at Prestatyn on Friday night. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

After leading 2-0 at half time, the Wingmakers were pegged back after the break before regaining their composure to secure the points thanks to Tom Field’s late penalty. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We don’t get many penalties, so it was a good time to get one as Prestatyn is a tough place to go and get three points,” Preece said. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We could have been three or four up at half-time, but we struggled in the second half and it was probably the worst we’ve played this season. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Credit to Prestatyn who had a real go, but we made changes ourselves, dug deep and showed a lot of character, and got back into the game in the last 15 minutes. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It’s put us in a great position. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We’re on 19 points and we’ve now got a six-point gap on third place.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Home boss Neil Gibson felt his side were unfortunate to lose: “Airbus are a very good team who are top of the league on merit,” he said. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Anything you get against  them has to be hard-earned,  but I felt we did enough to  deserve a win.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
