Airbus assistant manager Andy Thomas expects an 'end-to-end' encounter when they host league rivals Porthmadog on Saturday.

The Wingmakers are in imperious form this term, winning all 14 of their league games to date.

But Craig Papirnyk's Port side have climbed to second in the Alliance on the back of four successive league victories.

And Thomas maintains that a hard-fought 2-1 victory at Y Traeth was his side's most difficult victory so far this season.

He said: "Porthmadog are a quality footballing side and made it pretty tough for us in that game.

"They like to get the ball down and play and look to get forward quickly and are one of the best attacking sides in our division.

"Because of the run we're on, we've seen teams come here and sit in with a defensive shape to try to take a point.

"We've had to be patient in breaking teams down and finding a way past some well-organised defences.

"But we expect Porth to come here and have a go at us with the experience they have there.

"They're good enough to do that with the quality in that side and they'll be confident of causing us problems.

"After us they're the most in-form club in our league with four wins in their last five, so they'll be fully confident when they face us.

"Craig (Papirnyk) is a very good manager and I know he'll be coming here to get his side into the next round."

Defender Danny Thomas returns to the Airbus squad for the clash following a lengthy injury lay-off.
