VICTORY against Afan Lido on Saturday will give Bangor City one foot in the Welsh Premier League top six, according to manager Nev Powell, who spoke with the North Wales Chronicle's Tomos Hughes.

With five matches to go until the league split, City would be guaranteed at least a play-off for a spot in the Europa League come the end of the season, should they manage to hold onto a spot in the top six.

Currently lying in fifth place, four points clear in the prized top half, Powell believes his side will be on course to achieve their aim if they earn three points against the league’s bottom side at The Book People Stadium this Saturday (2.30pm).

He said: "We're looking forward to Lido on Saturday, I think we'll have one foot in the top six if we can get three points.

“I think another three or four points could be enough, because everyone's going to be taking points off each other.

"We've still got work to do, we've got two games against Bala, which won't be easy, so the lads have got to keep working."

"There's no bad sides in the league and they [Lido] proved that against Aberystwyth and Connah's Quay, they've got young lads who are fighting for their lives.

"They're going to come up and give us a real go, but we'll concentrate on what we'll do.

“If we win, it'll be a massive three points and an early Christmas present for the club."
