Boss Aizlewood plans changes for trip north
CARMARTHEN Town boss Mark Aizlewood is planning changes as he prepares to take his side to Prestatyn.
The Old Gold are the form team in the Welsh Premier League and closed the gap on leaders Airbus to a point with their fourth successive victory last weekend, a 3-0 defeat of Afan Lido.
The three points keeps them in second place in the table.
Despite that, Town boss Aizlewood will shuffle his line-up this Saturday as he looks to return from North Wales with three points.
He did much the same at the weekend, leaving captain Carl Evans and prolific forward Christian Doidge on the bench and naming goalkeeper Steve Cann as his skipper.
All Carmarthen's goals were scored in a nine-minute spell after the break.
Substitute Doidge broke the deadlock in the 63rd minute, with Kyle Bassett and Matty Collins completing the scoring.
"The second half was far better and the introduction of fresh legs made all the difference. We were then able to up the tempo," added Aizlewood.
"Christian came on and scored within eight minutes and the overall performance improved as the game went on.
"However, we now have to prepare for next Saturday's match at Prestatyn. I will be changing the team around as it is never easy to play in North Wales."
Meanwhile, new Carmarthen Town signing Bassett (circled) is hoping to get among the goals this term.
Bassett arrived at Richmond Park this summer after a spell in the Welsh League.
But he has quickly become a firm favourite with the Old Gold fans thanks to his forays down the right.
"I'm enjoying being here," said Bassett.
"I know that I am stepping up a level having played in the Welsh League last season and it is a bit different for me.
"Coming to Carmarthen from a smaller team has been somewhat of a change.
"I scored 19 goals last season and it would be great to get near to that this time around."
