AIRBUS UK Broughton make their way to unbeaten Aberystwyth on Sunday (2.30pm) on the back of what boss Craig Harrison describes as their best performance of the season.
Midfielder Danny Desormeaux capped his first start since re-signing from Cammell Laird with an opportunist double strike to see the Wingmakers to a 2-1 Welsh Cup second-round home victory over Welshpool on Saturday.
Harrison’s men, despite strong winds swirling around the Airfield, played some delightful football and would have kept their first clean sheet in four matches had their league rivals not been awarded a soft penalty late on.
There now is a confidence in the Airbus camp that they can beat an Aber team undefeated in 10.
Harrison said: “Saturday’s performance was the best all-round team performance we’ve produced this season, especially in the first half. We were solid at the back, bossed the midfield and showed some good touches up front.
“Dezza (Desormeaux) will stand out because of his goals but the rest of the lads were fantastic as well.
“We’re all looking forward to Aberystwyth now. They are a strong and physical side and are unbeaten. But runs like theirs have to come to an end and there’s no reason why we can’t be the team to do it.”
Top-scorer James McIntosh, midfielder Matty Woodward and right-wingback Ryan Edwards return to give Harrison a selection headache.
Midfielder Gareth Caughter and striker Paul Hallows are short of match fitness and so will play for the reserves tomorrow, but Ashley Williams has suffered a setback in his bid to return from ankle ligament damage and joins long-term injury victim Jon Slater on the treatment table.
The Wingmakers, who head to Welshpool on Tuesday for their final Loosemores Challenge Cup Group Five game (7.30pm), have been drawn away to Cymru Alliance neighbours Buckley Town in the third round of the Welsh Cup.
