CRAIG Harrison is urging Airbus UK Broughton to build on their Welsh Cup success by ending Bangor City’s eight-match unbeaten league run tonight at the Airfield (7.30pm).
The treble-chasing Citizens have not tasted defeat since their opening-day reverse to defending champions Llanelli. But they will be wary of the Wingmakers having lost three and drawn one of their four visits to Broughton.
Boss Harrison is also keen to claim Bangor’s scalp to avenge the 5-0 drubbing they dished out to his side at Farrar Road in January.
And he believes they are capable of doing just that following their morale-boosting 5-1 third-round victory at Cymru Alliance neighbours Buckley Town on Friday night.
Harrison, who has an almost full-strength squad to choose from, said: “Andy Thomas (assistant manager) has told me about the record and I’m confident we can continue it.
“I think we’re slowly but surely beginning to click together, we’ve got more or less a fully-fit squad and we’re hoping Friday’s win will kick-start a run for us.
“Bangor are a very good team on a very good run, but that doesn’t make any difference to me. I think we’ve got every chance to win the game and that’s exactly what I’ll be telling the players.”
Strikers Phil Molyneux (2) and James McIntosh and midfielder Danny Desormeaux (2) did the damage against 10-man Buckley to seal the club’s first ever appearance in the last 16 of the Welsh Cup, in which they have been drawn at home to top-flight rivals Newi Cefn Druids.
Harrison’s striking options are boosted tonight by the return of Paul Hallows. Fellow frontman Tom Rowlands, although suspension-free, is struggling with a hamstring injury.
