AIRBUS ended a tough seven days by beating Bala Town 2-1 on Friday night to make it seven points from three games and director of football Andy Preece reflected on what he described as his best week in management.

A depleted squad won 1-0 at Carmarthen before drawing 2-2 at home to Rhyl in midweek.

And, to add to the crisis at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium, Mike Roddy and Steve Jones missed the visit of Bala through suspension and injury respectively.

"It's a huge three points, we've had an unbelievable week," Preece said.

"When we set out at the start of the week with the players that we had available, to get seven points out of nine is probably the best week we've had as a management team and as a group, probably since I've been managing.

"We were struggling so badly with players out of position and playing injured so it's a nice result, it's fantastic.

"Especially the second half when we're against the wind, they get the early goal with a great finish and we soaked up the pressure.

"We always looked lively on the break and, overall, we just about nicked it an deserved to win the game.

"We were a little bit more dangerous against the wind than they had been in the first half.

"They showed their quality with their efforts from distance which were better than what we did, we didn't work the keeper enough, James Coates has made a couple of good saves and they've hit the outside of the post.

"But we had enough opportunities really to be two or three up at half time, but second half we created plenty."

The Wingmakers now have a two-week break from Welsh Premier action with the visit of Penybont in the Welsh Cup on Saturday.

Suspended trio Jay Owen, Phil Bolland and Mike Roddy will be available for selection and Preece also hopes some injuries will have time to heal.

"The lads can have a bit of a rest - the same lads have played the last three games and they are absolutely shattered," Preece went on.

"Hopefully a couple of injuries will clear up and we have a couple back from suspension so we'll be that much stronger going into the five or six games before the split.

"We wanted to get into a position where we could reflect and now we've got an 11-point gap from us to third place when, two games ago, it could possibly have gone down to one.

"It's been a massive week for us."
