SEEMINGLY invincible on home soil, Ruthin Town's away day woes have continued.

Chris Williams' charges are without a Huws Gray Alliance win away from Memorial Park Fields since mid-September and they were unable to come away from high-flying Airbus UK Broughton with anything to show from their efforts.

Ruthin went into the Friday night clash on the back of two big league wins and they were the better side during the first half at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium.

The well-organised and lively visitors shaded the first half action, with skipper and man of the match Ilan Hughes firing a long-range effort just over the home bar.

At the other end, Leo Riley headed over for Airbus and Ruthin number one Ryan Goldston produced an excellent save to tip James Hooper's 30-yarder behind for a corner.

The home side's hopes of achieving victory were dealt a blow when they were reduced to 10 men on the stroke of half-time.

Airbus skipper Steve Tomassen was sent off when he was adjudged to be the last man when fouling the league's leading scorer Llyr Morris on the edge of the box.

The ensuing free kick came to nothing, while it was the Wingmakers who looked a better proposition after the break despite their numerical disadvantage.

The only goal of the contest came eight minutes into the second half.

Nathan Quirk found Lewis Buckley with an excellent pass and the new signing was brought down in the box.

Quirk stepped forward to blast his penalty attempt into the corner of the net.

Dave Roberts, who played for Llandudno in the recent Welsh Cup tie with Ruthin, made a good save to deny Tom Roberts, but Airbus were able to gather the three points to complete a Huws Gray Alliance double over their opponents.
