BARRY Town will look to keep the pressure on league leaders Connah’s Quay Nomads this weekend as they host mid table Broughton Airbus UK.

It is a first home game in five weeks for the Linnets, with Mo Touray looking to score his first goal for the side on his second return to Jenner Park.

Town sit a point adrift of Andy Morrison’s – although they do have a game in hand over the leaders – and come into the game on the back of a hard fought 1-1 draw at Bala Town last time out.

Their opponents, Airbus UK, picked up a win last weekend as Andy Owens’ double helped the Wingmen to a 2-0 victory over Newtown FC.

Airbus are in eighth position after the result, a third victory for Steve O’Shaughnessy’s side since being promoted from the Cymru Alliance last season.

Barry Town will be boosted by the return of Johnathan Hood who is back in contention following his return from injury, whilst Jordan Cotterill is still unavaible through suspension.

Robbie Pattern, Troy Greening and Callum Sainty still remained sidelined with injuries.
