Hughes previews Prestatyn clash

Gaffer on new signings and transfer window

 Chris Hughes has called on his side to finish the first phase in style when they faced Prestatyn Town tomorrow tea time.

The Robins go into the game on the back of a superb comeback on Tuesday night, where the recovered from 2-0 down to beat Cardiff Met.

It means the Robins have won five out of their last nine games, and would be sitting pretty ahead of phase two with a win over Hughes' old side tomorrow.

He said: "We are looking to first the first phase in style, and this is where the season now starts for us with 11 games to go.

"There are a lot of outcomes in the bottom six, but we just want to stay in the league that is our aim.

"We're on a good run, we've won five out of our last nine and have been unlucky in the other games against top sides.

"On Tuesday, it was a game of two halves, the first it was everything that is bad about us, but the second was everything that is good, so we want to take that to Saturday."

Hughes will have new signing Callum Roberts at his disposal for the visit of the Seasiders.

Roberts, a left back from Montgomeryshire, has joined the club on loan from Shrewsbury Town and could get straight into the side.

Hughes added: "Callum is someone we know well, he is a local lad and we've had lads out of position at left back and Pricey has been injured, so it is a good move for everyone.

"He is used to the league having been at TNS so it is good for both parties."

Hughes said discussions will also take place next week about the possibility of extending Ryan Sears' loan deal.

He added: "Ryan has done well and had lots of game time.

"When his loan is up after this game we will sit down with Ryan and Shrewsbury and decide the best way forward, he is there player, so we will have to discuss that."

The boss also confirmed James Murphy has left the club to persue football closer to home, after finding the travelling a demand.

Hughes said he could get one more in, but if not he is happy with the squad.

He added: "James has gone and we wish him well so that is two in and two out.

"We've possibly got one more to come in but if that happens we are happy with what we have.

"We are more cohesive now, we've bedded lads in and are looking solid, and looking forward to tomorrow's game." 

Jamie Price is still injured tomorrow and JoJo Harries is suspended.
