Bangor City v TNS
Welsh Premier League
Sunday 22 January 2006: Away - Farrar Road
BANGOR City's Clayton Blackmore is braced for a baptism of fire when Saints travel up to Farrar Road on Sunday.
The Citizens' new player/manager goes into his first game in charge without four of his recognised squad. Striker and summer TNS trialist Alex Hay has moved to Leigh RMI, while Irish midfielder Paul Friel has gone to Porthmadog.
Captain Paul O'Neill is troubled by a hamstring injury and ex-Manchester United FA Cup hero Lee Martin is unavailable.
Kenny Burgess also faces a fitness test as Blackmore turns to the club's successful Under-21 side for reinforcements.
"We are not expected to win but, provided we have 11 players on the pitch, we have a chance and, no matter who is out there, they will give 100%", says Blackmore.
TNS boss Ken McKenna is under no illusions either: "It's always a tricky time to play teams after they've just announced a new manager with players out to impress," he said. "We've got to watch out for that."
McKenna, who watched new second placers Llanelli beat Carmarthen 1-0 at Richmond Park on Friday night will again be without defensive duo Martyn Naylor and Tommy Holmes.
