MANAGER Andy Thomas says Airbus have become accustomed to opponents ‘raising their game’ as he prepares to face Caersws at the Hollingsowrth Group Stadium.

Despite defeats at Queens Park and Porthmadog, the Wingmakers have quickly adapted to life in the Huws Gray Alliance and Thomas is braced for another rearguard action from a visiting side and insists the onus is on his players to break teams down.

"To be fair, every game is tough in this league but even more so when you get teams raising their game, he says. "Teams will sit back and defend when they come to our ground with a lot of men behind the ball.

"I expect Caersws might do the same, so we have to find a way through them. The aim is get back into the Welsh Premier at the first attempt but we know we have to be consistent across the season to get ourselves out of a really tough division.”

With the exception of John Davies, Thomas should have a full strength squad to select from with Stefan Edwards, Mark Jones, Aaron Bowen and Ashley Williams all expected to return.
