ANDY THOMAS says that title-chasing Airbus can ill-afford to look too far ahead this season.

With just six games remaining this term, the Wingmakers now boast a commanding nine-point lead at the summit and could feasibly wrap up the league title as early as March 16.

But assistant manager Thomas insists there is no room for distractions as the Flintshire club bid to return to the Welsh Premier League after a two-year exile.

He said: “I don’t look at the table too often and I don’t care about what other sides in the league are doing. We’ve only been focused on ourselves all season and that’s worked for us. There’s no point in looking two or three games ahead because it can be an unpredictable league and teams can easily take points off you.

"We’re used to other clubs treating games against us like cup finals and we expect Buckley to come here and make it tough for us.”

Buckley must sustain their new-found defensive solidity to remain among the league’s top sides, says boss Dan Moore.

A 2-0 victory over Holyhead Hotspur last weekend clinched Town’s third successive clean sheet and lifted them to sixth place in the table.

The Bucks’ defence will face the division’s second-highest scorers tomorrow and Moore will relish the challenge.

He said: “It’s a nice position to be in the top six, but things change so quickly in this league and we can’t be complacent.

"In some ways we feel like the pressure’s off for us and we can go to Airbus and have a real go at them.

“But our recent defensive record is something to be proud of and something we can build on going forward.”

"We know we’re facing the best side in the league this season and are looking forward to testing ourselves against them.”

Both sides head into the clash with full-strength squads, with Airbus set to welcome back Matty McGinn (above).
