Gresford Athletic have 'nothing to fear' from visitors Bangor City, according to Colliers boss Steve Halliwell.

The league fixture reunites the two sides swiftly, following their high-scoring cup clash last weekend that saw the Citizens prevail with 5-3 at Nantporth.

Athletic surrendered a 3-1 advantage in the tie as Craig Harrison's men stormed back with four unanswered goals to progress.

Halliwell is adamant that his side have learned from the experience and is relishing tomorrow's rematch in what is also their first home game this season

He said: "Going to Bangor last week, there was a bit of a fear factor on our part and we looked like rabbits in the headlights early in the game.

"But we grew into the game and it was only our own defensive errors that allowed them back into it.

"We caused them a lot of problems and as good as Bangor are, they're not the team that finished second in the Welsh Premier last season.

"We know they can be got at, and we feel there are weaknesses we can exploit.

"It's not been ideal for us not playing home games because of the groundshare with the cricket club, but this is a great game to start us off at home

"We're looking forward to making it as big a test for Bangor as possible."

Midfielder Matty Hurdman will be contention to start for the hosts following is switch from Holywell Town this week.

Full-back Ben Burrow returns after missing the Bangor game, with Aaron Edwards and Joe Newton.

Niall McGuinness insists that last weekend's League Cup exit has sharpened the club's appetite for league success

The cup holders were dumped out in a 2-1 home reverse to Holyhead Hotspur, with McGuiness now focused solely on challenging at the top of the division.

The Silkmen visit Llanrhaedr on Saturday,with McGuinness expecting a return to winning ways.

He said: "There needs to be a reaction from us after the Holyhead game. We were off the pace at times and our mentality on the day wasn't really good enough.

"There were some sloppy mistakes made and the most important thing for me is that put that right at Llanrhaeadr and don't repeat the same mistakes.

"This is a big couple of weeks for us with fixtures coming thick and fast. We're second in the league after six games and we want to keep ourselvs up there this season and challenging the best sides in this league.

McGuinness has bolstered his squad with the signings of Oldham Athletic academy graduate Francois Antione and former Wales U18 goalkeeper Chris Sanna.

McGuinness has hailed Antoine's qualities as an attacking midfielder, saying: "The minute Aden, Johnny and myself saw Francois, we were instantly impressed with his ability.

He featured in a behind closed doors friendly, last week, and it was clear we needed to sign him, as he could prove to be a great asset to the club. We all look forward to working with him and helping him progress as a footballer."

The midfielder is ineligible for tomorrow's game with international clearance pending, though Jack Lewis returned from suspension.

The best is yet to come from runaway leaders Airbus, according to assistant manager Andy Thomas.

The Wingmakers have been in outstanding form, winning all six of their league games to date and holding a seven point lead at the summit ahead of tomorrow's trip to Porthmadog.

Despite their imperious start, Thomas is confident that his side will only get better.

He said: "We have been dominating games, but we still feel we can be more ruthless in the attacking third.

"Too often in games we've let the opposition off the hook and not converted chances that should have been put away.

"Defensively we've tightened up and that side of things is excellent right now, but hopefully we can find even more of a cutting edge to our game now and we can get even better.

"Porthmadog are a very good footballing side and we respect that, but our focus is always on how we can hurt them.

"We're fully focused on doing that and preserving the winning record we've started with."

Kristian Platt and Leo Riley return for the Flintshire side ahead of the the clash at Y Traeth.

Buckley Town boss Dan Moore believes his side's start to the season has 'raised a few eyebrows'.

Moore has overseen three victories already this term for his newly-promoted side, who head to Guilsfield tomorrow.

He said: "It's been a good September for us and I think that back to back wins over Prestatyn and Porthmadog in the league have instilled a bit of confidence.

"People may not have expected us to have started as strongly as we have and it's probably raised a few eyebrows and that's something we want to continue.

"We're not getting carried away, it's still very early to be looking at the league table and we know Guilsfield will be a tough game.

"They're solid at home and have established themselves well in this league."

Adam Eden and Dylan Roberts return from injury for Buckley.

Holyhead Hotspur host Penrhyncoch, while Ruthin head to Prestatyn.
