DIRECTOR of football Andy Preece has warned that past results count for little as his side look to maintain their unbeaten league form at Prestatyn Town on Saturday.

The Wingmakers have won their last seven meetings with the Seasiders, including a 13-goal haul on their last three visits to Bastion Gardens.

But Preece says: "Although we’ve got a good record there, we had to work hard for the points each time.

"They get some good results at home, it’s always a difficult place to go, so we know we have to be at our best."

Winger Ryan Wignall is suspended, but full-back Lee Owens returns while Mike Roddy is expected to feature after illness kept him out of the squad last week.

But Ryan Wade is still struggling with a groin in injury and skipper Ian Kearney faces a check on a hamstring problem.

Meanwhile, Prestatyn manager Neil Gibson hopes his team’s good home form this season can help them lay the ghost against Airbus.

"We’ve been pleasing at home this season in terms of performances and results," he says.

"Our away form has not been as pleasing, but we’ll be aiming to get back to the form we’ve been showing at home against Airbus.

"It’s going to be difficult; they’ve started well as expected and I’m sure they’ll be up challenging near the top again this season, but I’ve always said that if we play well at home we’re a match for anyone in this league."

Gibson will be hoping prolific marksman Andy Parkinson passes a late fitness test.
