THE Wingmakers have two games this week, starting with the re-arranged home league match against Port Talbot Town on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.30pm).

"Port Talbot have started to get into a little bit of form, they've got some quality players," says director of football Andy Preece.

"I think the strength in the league is getting better and it's getting more difficult against any of the teams.

"But if we perform like we did on Saturday against TNS, given an even break then we will win a lot more than we lose."

Preece will be without the services of Ryan Wade, who was sent-off for dissent in stoppage time against the Saints, while the Steelmen will be missing central defender Carl Evans who was red-carded in Sunday's 1-1 home draw with Gap Connah's Quay.

“Losing Carl Evans is going to be a blow as he’s been fantastic this season but we've got other players to come in and hopefully do a job,” says Talbot manager Jarred Harvey.

"It’ll be tough for us this week, we’ve got three games again. We’ve got a five-hour journey on Wednesday and we certainly won’t be going up there full-strength.

"We’ve got a few injuries after the weekend so we’ll see where we are going forward."

Three days later, Airbus make the trip to Park Avenue to face Aberystwyth Town (2.30pm).

The Seasiders have made an excellent start to the campaign and currently lie second, although they lost for the first time on Saturday with a 6-3 reverse at Newtown.

"Apart from TNS, everybody else from top to bottom can finish second or can finish 12th in this league this year and Aberystwyth are definitely one of those teams who can finish second," Preece added.

"So it's a tough game."
