ANDREW THOMAS has warned high-flying Barry Town United that Airbus aren’t heading south to “make up the numbers”.

The Wingmakers make the trip to Jenner Park tomorrow on the back of a 2-0 home success over Newtown, which saw them climb to eighth in the table.

Barry were given an almighty scare by Airbus at the Airfield last month, Gavin Chesterfield’s visitors snatching a 1-0 victory despite being put under sustained pressure.

And Thomas and boss Steve O’Shaughnessy, both pictured, are looking to make amends for that defeat, saying: “They are up at the top end of the league, but we are going there with any fear.

“The challenge for us is to try and beat a team at the top end of the table, and it’s one that we are looking forward to.

“We won’t be going down there to make up the numbers.

“We didn’t get what we deserved the last time we played them and hopefully we can get some reward if we produce another strong performance.”

Airbus have strengthened their squad with the signing of free agent Liam Williams.

The Flintshire-raised defender left Sheffield Wednesday in the summer, and after turning down an offer from Accrington Stanley, has signed at the Airfield subject to clearance.

“He looks the part,” said Thomas, who added that goalkeeper Dave Roberts was “not far off” returning to action after a shoulder injury.

The experienced Kristian Platt should also make the trip to Barry after illness.

Caernarfon will be looking to bounce back from successive defeats by beating rock-bottom Carmarthen, who are without a win from their opening 11 matches.
