Carmarthen Town have new found belief ahead of Airbus visit
CARMARTHEN Town host second placed Airbus tomorrow (3.45) with new-found belief after recording their opening Championship Conference win.
The Old Gold beat Prestatyn 3-2 last weekend to bank their first victory since the mid-season split.
Now they entertain the high-flying Wingmakers looking to build on that result.
"I am delighted to have secured our first points in the top phase of the Welsh Premier League," said manager Mark Aizlewood.

"At the start of the season I believed that The New Saints would win the league with Airbus second and Bangor third.
"Airbus will be our sternest test for a long time as they set you totally different problems from The Saints.
"However, my players now realise they can take points in the top six so will all give it their best shot."
Carmarthen raced into a three-goal lead against Prestatyn as Corey Thomas, Liam McCreesh and Casey Thomas hit the target.
Prestatyn forced their way back into the game with strikes from Mark Smyth and Greg Stones, but Town held out.
"Prestatyn are an established top-six team and it is an ambition of mine to turn Carmarthen Town into a regular club at this level, where winning is the norm and we are not just infrequent visitors," added Aizlewood.
"The management are already in discussion in terms of a long-term strategy which will enable us to compete with the best on the field of play.
"Although we deserved to win, having gone 3-0 up by half-time, we still had to work hard to secure the points.
"One big development we now have is that we can choose from an 18-man squad, not just a team of 11. The players accept the rotation in selection which we have to do to match the opposition at this level.
"The players understand that if they are left out it is for the betterment of the team."
