A 12-noon kick-off at Aberystwyth's Park Avenue on Saturday is no problem for the Wingmakers, insists director of football Andy Preece.

The game against the Seasiders has been scheduled for tomorrow because no other date was available.

"It was the only compromise really, we has no choice but to play on Saturday at that time," Preece explained.

"We couldn't get a referee on Sunday because it is the national meeting.

"It is the League Cup final tomorrow afternoon and, if we had played midweek, we would have had six or seven players missing.

"We could have played it on December 29 when we both didn't have a game, but Aber didn't want to play it then.

"It is not a major problem playing it when we are."

Airbus will be pleased to get some match action after last weekend's home fixture with Afan Lido was postponed three-quarters of an hour before kick-off.

"Both teams wanted to get it played but I can understand the referee's call that it wasn't safe," added Preece, who is delighted to have secured a place in the Championship Conference.

"It is fantastic to be where we are now and we need to take advantage of it."

Airbus will have new keeper Jamie Stephens in goal, while Tom Field and Lee Owens are suspended.

If international clearance comes through in time, new signings Luke McCarthy and Reynaldo Carbon will also be in the squad together with youngster Max Jenks-Gilbert.
