Newtown manager Andy Cale says his players now believe they can pull clear of the Welsh Premier League relegation trapdoor but tonight's game looks likely to be a victim of the heavy frost.

The game is subject to a 2pm pitch inspecection and rated very doubtful with a provisional new date already made for Saturday, January 29..

Cale's side are due to face Airbus Broughton at Mid Wales Leisure Latham Park tonight believing that they can start to pick up points following the arrival of four new signings and the prospect ofmore arrivals before the January transfer window slams shut.

"Everyone in the squad now has a smile on their face and there is a new belief.," said Cale. "We matched Bangor on Saturday all over the field and despite the bitter disappointment of losing to a last minute goal there is a new confidence.

"Yes, we have to start picking up points and with Llanelli and The New Saints coming to Latham Park in the next few weeks it's not going to be easy. But the squad is looking stronger and we are playing the way I want to."

Matty Cooke(pictured) is certain to keep his place in the heart of the midfield since arriving from Airbus while former Newtown captain Gavin Cadwallader will be in the opposition side with a point to prove.

Cale hah hoped to bring in another signing by today but has been frustrated by red tape but is still hopeful of strengthening furrther by next week.

Josh Evans signed an 18 month contract at Newtown before setting off on loan to Technogroup Welshpool and Jamie Breese is set to sign up too.
