COLWYN BAY have the chance to move into the top five of the JD Cymru North with a game in hand on the teams above them when Porthmadog visit the 4 Crosses Arena on Saturday (2:30pm kick off).

 Porthmadog, after winning promotion to the JD Cymu North, are currently third on goal difference having had two wins and one defeat in their three league games so far, but the Bay, on the back of last week’s 6-1 victory at Holywell, will leapfrog them if they can open their home league programme with three points.

 Craig Papirnyk’s side come into the game after an impressive 3-0 away win at Penrhyncoch last weekend. Former Colwyn Bay and Llanrwst striker Callum Parry and last year’s top scorer Rhys Alun are major goal threats up front and already have five goals between them, while Meilir Williams is a dangerous attacker down the right flank.

The Seagulls, who have shown they have good strength in depth in their unbeaten start to the campaign, will also want to take advantage of dropped points in Friday night’s top five clash between Llandudno (2nd) and Cefn Druids (5th) as they look to stay on the tails of current league leaders Buckley Town (three wins out of three ahead of their a visit to Holyhead Hotspur on Saturday).

Bay boss Steve Evans said: “We’ll be looking to build on the performance from last week, although we know it’s going to be a tough game

“Porthmadog have had a good start to the league campaign with two wins and only narrowly  losing to Gresford in the last minute.

“Those two wins have been away from home so we have to be right at it, which we will be.

“We’ll prepare right like we always do and we’ll be ready to perform.

“We have a couple of players available for selection again after injury, along with the squad that did brilliantly last week, so competition for places is strong, which really excites me as the players are constantly pushing each other to become better.”

The clubhouse will be open from 12:15pm with Spurs v Wolves match live on the big screen.,
