JAMES CLAYBROOK insists the pressure is on leaders Menai Bridge as they visit Brymbo for a top of the table showdown tomorrow.

Table topping Menai looked certain to lift the title a month ago, but defeat to second-placed Llandudno has opened the door for their rivals.

Llandudno are 26 points behind Menai ahead of their trip to Pwllheli tomorrow, while Brymbo are a place and two points further back.

Claybrook is remaining calm ahead of Menai’s visit, insisting that the leaders still hold the advantage with only four games of the season remaining.

“Menai were home and dry a week or so ago,” said Claybrook. “We have no pressure whatsoever, so it’s about putting in a performance and seeing if we can make things uncomfortable for them.

“ I set the target of five wins from five last week through to the end of the season and nothing’s changed from that. If we achieve that it could be interesting come the last game.

“We just need to take it one game at a time and see where it gets us.”

Menai Bridge won the first meeting between the two teams, posting 200 before bowling Brymbo out for just 122 in reply.

Claybrook wants his team to make amends for that defeat.

He continued: “Hopefully we’ve learnt from the errors of our defeat at their place and can continue are very good home form this season.

“We’re playing good cricket again so the lads are relishing the challenge against Menai.”

Claybrool, who was “pretty disappointed” to get out on 95 in last week’s convincing 189-run win against visiting Hawarden Park, is boosted by the return of spinner Gareth Boyes, although Gareth Pugh and Dave Blackwell are both unavailable.
