FOUR wins from four games represents the Wingmakers' best-ever start to a Welsh Premier campaign and director of football Andy Preece was a happy man after the 6-1 defeat of Newtown.

"It can't get any better than that, can it," Preece said.

"It's only four games but it's 12 points towards - what are you looking at, 30 points to get in the top six - at this stage already it's a great position for us to be in.

"When you win any game by six goals to one you've got to be happy.

"I thought we were pretty rampant in the second half and we could have had more really but at least we're taking the opportunities that we're creating and it was a step forward again for us.

"There were some excellent goals, a few long distance ones for the amount of possession we had in good areas, but it's nice to see the tap-ins as well like the one from Chris Budrys, those are pleasing ones, so I can't have any complaints really about the performance today apart from conceding the one goal."

It took 22 minutes for Airbus to unlock a stubborn Newtown rearguard which had already ridden it's luck in the opening stanza before a second-half avalanche and Preece added: "We knew we had to be patient because of the way they lined-up at Rhyl and got the result, they get everybody behind the ball and make it really difficult so the first goal was key.

"Then we had to be patient again in the second half to get the second and third and then Newtown have got to change something and left themselves open a little bit more and then we managed to capitalise."

Asked about press rumours linking him to the vacant manager's job at one of his former clubs, Stockport County, Preece said: "I don't know anything about that. All I'm interested in is doing well for Airbus and if that means we are near the top of the league and they start speculating about other jobs, then that happens. 

"But we've got a really big job on here to try and repeat what we did last year and that's all I'm focused on."
