IF Airbus UK Broughton can win their re-arranged fourth round Welsh Cup tie at Guilsfield, their reward will be a home tie against Bala Town in the last eight.

But director of football Andy Preece is looking no further ahead than Wednesday and is under no illusions about the task in hand.

"I saw Guilsfield play Caernarfon the other week where they got a really good result and are right up there this season," he said.

"They would have been disappointed to lose last Saturday, but they look a good, well organised side with loads of energy and fantastic team spirit.

"On their own pitch, it's a difficult draw, the Cymru Alliance is improving and is full of good players, which Denbigh Town have shown this season in the Word Cup, so we won't be taking anything for granted.

"We won't be looking any further ahead in the competition than this game."

The Wingmakers, unbeaten in their last six outings, will go into the tie without the injured Lee Owens, while Ryan Wignall is suspended and Jay Owen is a doubt after suffering a back injury in the draw against MBi Llandudno.

Guilsfield have been going well in the Alliance and defeated Airbus 3-2 after extra time in the second round at Clos Mytton back in October 2007.

The quarter-final draw in full:

  • The New Saints v Newtown AFC
  • Guilsfield/Airbus UK Broughton v Bala Town
  • Cwmbran Celtic/Goytre v Port Talbot Town
  • Afan Lido/Cardiff Met University v Gap Connah's Quay

Ties to be played over the weekend of 4, 5 and 6 March.
