Confidence levels among the in-form Airbus squad are 'sky-high', according to assistant manager Andy Thomas.

The league leaders have been in imperious form, winning all four of their league fixtures to date before a superb Welsh Premier League Cup success at Cefn Druids in midweek.

And with his side currently setting the pace in the Cymru Alliance, Thomas says the club are in buoyant mood ahead of tomorrow's clash with Gresford Athletic.

He said: "We played some of our best football of the season so far against Cefn Druids.

"It was a brilliant team performance and really showed what we're capable of doing to teams, but there's still a lot more to come from us.

"We feel that we've got the depth within our squad and that we could give most Welsh premier teams a a decent game.

"The confidence is sky-high and seems to be flowing through the players out there on the pitch.

"Gresford will come here and make it difficult for us I'm sure, but we're focused on our own game and the challenge for us now is to keep pushing ourselves in terms of our performance levels."

Steve Halliwell says his Gresford side will not be daunted by tomorrow's game and that the Airfield's artificial playing surface should suit his players.

After successive league defeats, the Colliers bounced back with a 4-0 NEWFA Cup win over Rhydywmyn in midweek.

Now Halliwell has urged his players to express themselves against the league's most in-form side.

He said: "I've spoken to Huw Griffiths about how the strengths Airbus have got. He was impressed with them and they've certainly looked strong in the first month of the season.

"We're heading into a horrific run of fixtures in September against all of the strongest sides in this league, but it's a chance for our players to prove their qualities too.

"We're a side that likes to get the ball down and play and hopefully the Airbus pitch will suit that aspect of our game.

"Jordan (MacCarter) and Owen (Roberts) both scored a couple in midweek, so to have two of our strikers firing is a big positive ahead of this game."

Gresford full-back Dean Bryan could miss out with an eye injury, though Aeron Edwards, Jack Chalinor and Sam Molyneux all return.

Airbus are boosted by the return of keeper David Roberts, who missed the win over Druids.

Niall McGuinness insists that Flint Town United's derby success has galvanised his squad ahead of tomorrow's trip to Penrhyncoch.

The unbeaten Silkmen defied the odds to win the cup game 3-2 in extra-time despite being forced to play defender Andy Brown in goal and then being reduced to 10 men late on.

And McGuinness insists that his unbeaten side will need to show the same character and commitment in tomorrow's trip to mid-Wales.

He said: "Winning my first derby as Flint manager was a great feeling, but more importantly I think it's given everyone involved with the club a lift.

"We're pleased to still be unbeaten oin the league, but know that Penrhyyncoch are a capable side. I watched them against Rhyl last week and they're a side with quality and experience in there.

"We'll need to work just as hard as we did in that cup game to come away from there with a result."

Top scorer Mark Cadwallader is back in contention after being rested against Holywell, while Josh Hart should also return in goal.

After netting the winner in midweek, Brandon Burrows is an injury doubt for McGuinness' side.

Gareth Sudlow believes the extra-time defeat to Flint was the 'worst possible outcome' for his Holywell players.

Winless this term, the Wellmen will look to atone for their cup heartache at home to in-form Llanrhaeadr tomorrow.

He said: "It was the worst possible outcome for us on Tuesday night.

"Putting in so much effort to come away with nothing is as bad as it gets in football.

"We've got a small squad as it is, so to go the full 120 minutes and lose in the manner we did was really tough to take.

"The situation means that some of the lads are now going to have to play through the pain barrier against Llanrhaeadr.

"Like a lot of the mid-Wales sides they've played together for a long time before they come up a division.

"That togetherness will serve them well this season. So we have to respect their strengths, but we're desperate for that first win, because once we get that we know more will follow."

The Wellmen have injury concerns over midfield pair Paul Williams and Jack Pennington, but welcome back Danny Desormeaux.

Buckley Town boss Dan Moore has demanded better game management from his side against Prestatyn Town.

Moore was left frustrated as his side let a lead slip against Conwy Borough last weekend, the game ending in a 2-1 reverse.

He said: "It was massively frustrating. To be in such a strong position for most of the game and then to throw it away was a massive disappointment.

"We need to be better at closing games out from those kind of positions. I felt our inexperience really showed towards the end of that game and we need to sharpen up in that respect.

"We know how Prestatyn will set up to play and we feel we can go there and get the win.

"We're travelling with the strongest squad we've had available this season, so we're well placed to get ourselves a result."

Town are boosted by the return of Phil Molyneux, Chris Roberts and Dylan Roberts.

Bangor City will look to arrest their three-game losing streak at home to Holyhead Hotspur tonight, while Denbigh Town head to Conwy Borough.

Porthmadog host Rhyl tomorrow while Guilsfield make the trip to Ruthin Town.
