THE Seagulls face the first of back to back games against second-from-bottom Penrhyncoch at the 4 Crosses Arena on Saturday (2:30pm kick-off) knowing they can’t afford any slip ups after seeing their lead at the top of the table cut to just three points in the past week.

Title rivals Holywell followed up Saturday’s win at the Bay with a 2-0 midweek victory over Chirk (their 24th win in a row) and on current form, the Wellmen look favourites to win all their remaining three games.

The title is still in Bay’s own hands and two wins against the Ceredigion village side would, with their superior goal difference, put them in a strong position going into the last round of games on April 15.

Penrhyncoch have won only three of their 26 league games so far and have not won in their last eight outings since a 2-1 home win over bottom side Holyhead Hotspur at the end of January, but Seagulls boss Steve Evans is taking nothing for granted.

“There are no easy games and we’ll treat Penrhyncoch with the respect they deserve,” he commented.

“We’ll dust ourselves down, do the work in midweek, and be ready to put in a performance for the fans on Saturday to get us the three points.”
