PORT ARRIVE ON CREST OF A WAVE

WITH leaders Bangor City without a game this weekend, whoever wins today's Treflan clash could go top of the Welsh Premier.
But Saints' boss Ken McKenna is luke-warm at the prospect of reaching the summit.
"It's at the end of the final weeks of the season that I want to see us in pole position," he said.
"Last season we were top for much of the campaign and, although we lost only twice all season, we still had to be content with runners-up."
Nor is he underestimating the threat posed by newly-promoted Porthmadog at Treflan on Saturday (kick-off 2.30pm). The north Wales club come to Treflan on the crest of a wave, sitting second in the table with a nine point haul from their opening four games.
They kicked off their season with a 3-1 away win at Connah's Quay, a 3-1 home victory over Carmarthen, a 1-0 defeat at Afan Lido and a 3-0 home win over Welshpool.
In addition, they despatched Welshpool from the WP League Cup with a 2-0 aggregate win.
Porthmadog also came within minutes of snatching an unlikely victory at Bangor in the first round of the League Cup, before Peter Hoy managed to scramble an equaliser.
Carl Owen has been in fine form with three goals so far and Port - runaway winners of last season's Cymru Alliance - have not looked out of place back in the top flight.
McKenna points out that, if Saints are to maintain their 100% record, there must be no complacency after last week's 5-2 mauling of Newtown at Latham Park.
"Porthmadog are well organised, well coached and have a mixture of youth and experience," he told Saints-Alive. "Their confidence will be high after making such a good start."
New players at The Traeth this term include Alan Morgan, signed from Morecambe, Mark Williams (ex-Newtown), Llangefni pair Andrew Wagstaffe and Gerallt Jones, plus Emrys Williams who has returned from injury.
Saints' injured quartet of Steve Evans, Chris King, Tommy Holmes and Martyn Naylor are all doubtful and McKenna has two more problems to contend with. Jimmy Aggrey has a neck injury and Michael Wilde has been suffering with 'flu.
However, Saints are boosted by midfielder Steven Beck's decision to remain at Treflan.
Scholarship students David Lewis and Jon Beckett may be included on the bench.
The clubs last met at Treflan in season 1997/8, with Saints winning 2-1.
