Andy Preece

AFTER trouncing league leaders Prestatyn 5-0, Airbus will be involved in a true top of the table clash when they host new leaders The New Saints at The Airfield this Friday.

But director of football Andy Preece laughed-off title talk when interviewed after the game and insisted that the top six is the main target.

"We're enjoying it as it is, we've put ourselves up among the top teams, we've got TNS here on Friday which could bring us straight back down to earth so we're not getting carried away," he said.

"Our aim has always been to try and finish in the top six and you see results tonight, Llanelli won again, Bala won again, you know that those are going to come.

"I think there's only one place up for grabs and we're just determined that we can get that sixth place."

But Preece was also delighted with the performance against the Seasiders.

"I was really pleased with the way we went about the game today, we started from the first minute right until the last really," he went on.

"We were on top of the game, we knew how important it was against a side like Prestatyn who've done so well this season with some fantastic results and we showed them the utmost respect.

"They're a team who are going to be challenging up at the top of the league for the top places.

Neil Gibson said before the game he felt they were equipped to challenge so we knew how tough a game it would be and to come out and win like we did is a great achievement by everybody, not just the players out there but the players in the squad and all the people who work hard round the club supporting me, Andy and Tommo, so the result is for everybody.

"It could have and should have been more, but you can't be disappointed about the ones that get away when you are scoring five.

"It's nice to keep a clean sheet because we've been letting the odd goal in even when we've been winning - we've won five and seven but let that odd goal in which is always a disappointment, so to keep a clean sheet against the formidable strike force that Prestatyn have got is good for us."
