Airbus looking good for Euro return

SATURDAY'S 2-1 victory at Carmarthen Town left director of football Andy Preece feeling that European football is again firmly in his sights.

The win kept the Wingmakers within three points of leaders TNS but, more significantly, 13 points clear of the chasing pack in which chief rivals Bangor City and Rhyl both lost.

"To be where we are at this stage of the season is amazing and shows just how consistent we have been," Preece said.

"We're now looking good for second place, another four or five points should be enough, while it would need some freak results to deny us.

"We want to chase TNS, we know it's going to be difficult, but all we can do is try and pick up as many points as we can in our remaining games."

Preece was delighted with another excellent display on the road to follow the away win at Bangor in the Wingmakers' last league outing.

"Any win away to Carmarthen is going to be hard fought, but it was fully deserved over the 90 minutes," he added.

"In the first half they did not have a shot on goal, we looked comfortable, so we were disappointed to concede on half time.

"Carmarthen had chances in the second half, but so did we, and we showed great character to come away with the points."
