ANDY Preece is confident his Wingmakers can bounce back in style from a disappointing week when they face Bangor City at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium on Friday night (7.30pm).

The director of football feared that inadequate preparation could prove costly and, after going seven months without a competitive defeat, his fears proved to be correct as Airbus went down 2-1 to Aberystwyth and Bala.

"It's been a frustrating week," he told the Flintshire Chronicle.

"We should have got something from Aber - I don't think they deserved to win the game - and we were totally in control against Bala when we conceded the winner.

"But there are still plenty of positives we can take out of both games.

"We pride ourselves on our preparation and getting the things right that don't cost anything, so it's really frustrating when things are taken out of your hands."

Despite a handful of injury concerns, Preece is relishing having a near full-strength squad for the visit of fifth place Bangor.

"Losing is not a nice feeling and this has been a reminder, but we'll refocus," Preece added.

"It's been a hard week but hopefully everything will be right for Friday and there'll be no excuses.

"I have no doubt in the ability of my side but we need our key players fit and available, so it'll be nice if I've got that again.

"We have to be totally focused and 100% committed because if you're not then any team in this league can beat you.

"The lads have been tremendous all season and they've got their rewards.

"There will be no stone unturned in preparation for this game, because Bangor are a good side."

Defender Lee Owens remains sidelined while Chris Simm has left the club despite completing his six-match ban.
