JOE WILLIAMS could notch up his 50th appearance for the Bay in Saturday’s home game against Llanidloes Town (weather and pitch conditions permitting).

The former Caernarfon Town defender, who made his Bay debut in July 2021 against Gresford, missed only four games last season and has been an ever present in the match day squad this term, playing a part in all 19 cup and league games – eight starts and 11 times coming on as a substitute.

Only Tom McCready and Alex Downes in the current squad have made more appearances.

Meanwhile manager Steve Evans says he wants the team to build on their three consecutive clean sheets on Saturday.

The Bay had to come from 0-2 down to win three 3-2 at Llanidloes last month, but have kept three clean sheets since that game and Steve added: “That’s where the foundations are built, being strong and tough to beat, because we are always going to create chances the way we play.

“We know it is going to be a difficult game (against Llanidloes), but we’ll do the work in the week and we’ll be ready.”

Llanidloes have been without a win in their last seven league games (four defeats and three draws) but all the games have been fairly close and they had a good battling 2-2 away draw at Guilsfield.

The club are planning a 9am pitch inspection ahead of Saturday’s game.

Please note that if the game can go ahead on Saturday, the kick-off will be at 2pm, not 2:30.
