AIRBUS UK Broughton go into Friday night's tough opening Welsh Premier fixture at The New Saints missing several key players.
Director of football Andy Preece could be without Jordan Johnson, Danny Taylor, Wayne Riley, Ryan Edwards, Toby Jones and Glenn Rule for the game against the reigning champions.
In addition, Ian Kearney is suspended while Preece himself is banned from the dugout for the next two games.
"We know what TNS’s record at home is and it is going to be tough," said the boss.
"We just have to go there and do what we can.
"We’ve made a lot of changes and I think with a bit of luck this season we can achieve what we’ve never achieved before, a top-six finish."
