Following confirmation that Ilan Hughes will be out for between three and five weeks with a rib injury, the Bay have received more positive news on the injury front, with Kristian Platt’s knee injury not as serious as first feared.

The central defender, who joined from Airbus UK Broughton during the summer, suffered the injury in the defeat at Holywell in the Nathaniel MG Cup last month.

“It would now appear that his injury is not as severe as what we first thought,” manager Craig Hogg reported.

“We hope to see him back playing within the next four to six weeks.”

Without a game this weekend, Bay will next be in action on Tuesday when they host neighbours Conwy Borough in the JD Cymru North at the 4 Crosses Arena (7:45pm kick off).

It will be the first game since the 1-0 defeat at home to Ruthin Town, but the manager has had time to reflect on that game as well as the proceeding two league games.

“You don’t have a lot of time to critically analyse and reflect on what’s just happened in the moments after a game, especially a loss,” Hoggy added.

“So having the time to look back on what we have done overall and take stock, I can’t help but be pleased.

“The only difference between the Ruthin game and the previous two (against Gresford and Holyhead) were periods of play where perhaps we were on top and we didn’t capitalise, and periods of play where they were on top and they did.

“But I do want more from us and I do think there’s more to come. I’m expecting to see that in the games moving ahead.”
