AIRBUS UK Broughton boss Craig Harrison is facing a midfield selection headache for tomorrow’s visit of defending champions Llanelli to the Airfield (2.30pm).
Whereas for most of this season Harrison has been spoilt for choice in who he selects in the centre of the park, his options for the showdown with the full-timers are severely limited.
Ashley Williams, currently on trial at Wrexham, serves a one-match ban, Wes Kilgannon has yet to make himself available for selection again following a spell out of the team, while Matty Cook is sidelined after straining his knee ligaments.
Like Cook, Danny Desormeaux is nursing a knock sustained in Tuesday night’s 3-2 friendly defeat to a young Wrexham XI at Colliers Park.
Despite the injuries, Harrison viewed the run-out as a worthwhile exercise given his team have yet to play competitively in 2009 after Friday night’s trip to Caernarfon Town was postponed due to a frozen pitch.
He said: “Matty came off after half-an-hour and it looks like he’s going to be missing for two or three weeks. Danny also took a kick and we took him off at half-time as a precaution. I’m fairly sure he’ll be okay for Saturday, though.”
Airbus will be strong in defence tomorrow after Gareth Sudlow’s return from Caersws and Gary Lovell’s return to first-team action. Striker Paul Hallows is still at least two weeks away from recovering from his Achilles problem, though.
The Wingmakers’ rearranged home game with ninth-placed Newtown takes place on Wednesday (7.30pm).
