Airbus v Bala

ANDY Preece expects to be able to choose from a fully-fit squad on Saturday as his Airbus UK Broughton side look to build on a double over Bala Town when they host Bangor City.

Lee Owens took a slight knock on his ankle in Tuesday night's 2-0 win at Maes Tegid.

"I am hopeful that I will have a full squad to choose from," Preece told the Flintshire Chronicle. 

"That will be a big bonus against Bangor."

The Wingmakers' director of football said he was pleased to get some points on the board before his side take on Nev Powell’s Citizens as the players will need all their confidence if they want to take points off their guests.

"Bangor are always the team to push TNS at the top of the league," Preece added. 

"It is important for us to go into that game confident and it was vital we got points on the board before they came across.

"This is a tough league because of the January split, it’s like two leagues. 

"You have to start fast to make sure you are in the right position come January and then after the league splits you have to finish fast.

"It makes it a tough challenge but I believe we are capable of doing well this season."

The visitors are waiting on the outcome of an appeal to the FAW over a red card for key defender Jamie Brewerton in Tuesday night's 0-0 draw at Aberystwyth.
