CAERNARFON Town, convinced they perform better away from home, are up-beat about their prospects at mid-table Neath Athletic today.
The Oval pitch, which has been punished in recent months from use by two other club teams plus the exceptional rain, was in a poor state after the abandoned midweek derby with Llangefni Town.
Canaries’ manager Steve O’Shaughnessy said: “Any of our opponents’ grounds will be better than ours right now and the team will respond to that situation.
“Against Rhyl, for instance, in our last away game, we did so well for so long – and that will spur us on.
“Although Neath will be boosted by their excellent 3-3 draw at full-timers Llanelli on Wednesday, we are not far behind them in the table.
“While we are too near the relegation zone, we reckon that what we are doing is right and there are lots of games left for us to move towards mid-table safety.”
Midfielders Leyton Maxwell and Teddy Whelan are added to the squad named for the abandoned clash with Llangefni.
