Airbus UK Broughton this evening entertain Welsh Premier League Leaders Bangor City at the Airfield Ground (Kick Off 7.30)
The Wingmakers are full of confidence following Saturday`s drubbing of Haverfordwest County, a win that had been a long tim coming despite some encouraging performances, this evenings task against the Citizens is somewhat more difficult but Airbus will have nothing to lose as everyone expects a comfortable away victory, this will increase pressure on Bangor City to continue their fantastic run, but it must come to an end somewhere, and Nev Powell will be confident it will not be a crash landing at the Airfield.
Bangor will be without influential captain Jamie Brewerton by all accounts and they will be hampered further by the suspension of Goalkeeper Paul Smith who was dismissed in the weekend`s televised win at Aberystwyth Town, Peter Hoy was an able deputy at Aber an Powell may even decide to stick with his imposing figure this evening, Powell does have younger options from his reserve and youth squads should he wish to keep Hoy at his more accustomed right back slot.
All season the firepower of Jamie Reed, Alan Bull and Les Davies have blown teams away, but they are strong all over the park with Garside and Ward in the engine room and Morley likely to partner the excellent Michael Johnson at the back, with Sion Edwards, Eddie Jebb and Chris Jones also able to be utilsed out wide Bangor have options and more importantly confidence and self belief after a superb start to the inaugral Super 12. It will be interesting to see if City can hold on to Johnson and Reed come January with Clubs flocking to watch some impressive City performances thus far.
So that`s the task in front of a rejuvenated Airbus outfit, City are the Bookies Favourites but Harrison`s charges are a good footballing side at the Airfield and if the influential midfield pair of Ashley Williams and Danny Desormeaux can match Garside and Ward and the Firepower of Bangor`s front 3 can be thwarted then Bangor can expect a real run for their money. Harrison will certainley be hoping the Wingmakers can hold out for the first 20 minutes after conceding 3 goals in 12 minutes in City`s last visit to the Airfield, Airbus also conceded an early goal at Farrar Road in a 5-1 defeat earlier this season.
