McIntosh brace guarantees Airbus's Premier Status

FIGHTING desperately for survival in the Principality Welsh Premier, Airbus grabbed a lifeline through James McIntosh who scored a goal midway in each half for them at Caernarfon.

The Canaries, who had been rooted to the league basement for most of the season, had executed their escape the week before by means of a shock 3-1 win at prospective champions TNS.

But this homecoming turned out to be a huge anti-climax as Steve O'Shaughnessy's team hardly performed. The Wingmakers offered a gritty and certainly more committed show.

It mattered not that they were a player short from the 35th minute when sub Darren Williams was sent off for getting a second yellow card. He only joined the action after 10 minutes when frontman James Hussaney hobbled off with a thigh injury.

McIntosh grabbed his goals through a pair of headers after 22 and 66 minutes. The first followed a free-kick from the right by player-manager Gareth Owen and the clincher arose when Town's keeper Paul Pritchard spilled a centre from the right.

The best of Caernarfon's innocuous offerings amounted to a Paul Addo 35-yarder that flew wide, James Thomas's left wing lob and Mark Thomas'' header.
