Robins boss Chris Hughes has insisted there will be no margin for error as his side look to bounce back against Connahs Quay on Friday evening.

Newtown go into the game on the back of a 3-0 defeat at Carmarthen Town last week, which saw them drop down to sixth in the WPL table.

They head to Deeside to face the Nomads on Friday, who are one of the favourites to push TNS all the way for the WPL title.

Hughes says his side know how Andy Morrison’s side will set up, but insisted they need to be water tight to keep them out.

He said: “They’re a good team, top experienced players who have been at the top of the table for two or three years.

“There will be no margin for error on Friday, we will have to produce a display similar to that against Bala a couple of weeks ago.

“But we know how Andy likes to play, we’ve played them a number of times since he has been in charge so we know what they will do.

“We’ve prepared right and are ready for the challenge.

“They will want to bounce back from a defeat in the week, but we want to bounce back from last week.”

Hughes also reflected on last week, and while admitting his side need to be better he insisted there has been no over reaction despite the 3-0 loss.

He added: “For the first 20/25 minutes we were good, we hit the post and really should have had a blatant penalty.

“Then they got the first goal and that allowed them to sit in and hit us on the break, and they picked us off.

“We weren’t happy with how the goals were conceded, but that defence has been superb in the weeks before that so there has been no over reaction to it.

“We’re have prepared as we could and we want to see a performance more like the Bala game on Friday.”

Hughes welcomes back Craig Williams to his squad on Friday after the club captain served a three match suspension.

Jake Cook is also a doubt after he missed last week following a foot injury against Bala.
