PORTHMADOG, anxious to break their duck after six attempts, tackle champions The New Saints tonight.
“We are getting stronger, the mood in the dressing room is upbeat and we have shown in the past that we can compete with the best,” said player-manager Clayton Blackmore.
“Against Airbus UK on Saturday, we were victims of some dubious decisions by the officials. Losing to a couple of late goals was heartbreaking for the lads, who had worked so hard.
“What we all need is a huge boost and that would come from a win against the odds when we take on TNS.”
Manager Ken McKenna admits The New Saints still have plenty of work to do if they hope to challenge for Welsh Premier honours this term, writes John Bridgwater.
“We’re still not firing on all cylinders, and we’ll need to improve if we hope to challenge this season,” he said. “We’ve won our last three games, but we can play better and we’ll need to play better.”
The Saints boss is weighing up his options with Ronnie Morgan and Carl Lamb both scoring twice for the reserves.
