NIALL MCGUINNESS reckons Flint Town United could find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time tonight.

The Silkmen head to Colwyn Bay for what is Craig Hogg’s side’s first league match back in the Welsh system for over 30 years.

Bay were due to kick-off their campaign against Bangor City last weekend, but the Citizens’ off-field issues saw that postponed.

“Personally, I think with it being their first game in the league they will be raring to go with a fully fit squad,” said McGuinness of the challenge posed by the Seagulls.

“It’s a tough game, going to play Colwyn Bay on the back of a loss and they will have the bit between their teeth.”

But that doesn’t mean McGuinness’ men are heading to Llanelian Road to make up the numbers as they look to bounce back from a 2-1 opening weekend defeat to Rhyl.

“It’s down to us to push our chests out and get back to winning ways,” added McGuinness, who revealed his frustration at having to play the game tonight, rather than tomorrow, which was the original scheduled date.

Flint will be hoping to have Brandon Burrows available for selection after the midfielder was forced to miss the clash with Rhyl due to an administrative error.

“Brandon missing out was the biggest disappointment,” said McGuinness.

“He’d served his four-match ban, but the new comet system said he still had a game of his suspension to serve.

“If Brandon plays in midfield against Rhyl it’s a different game.”

McGuinness is also hoping that attackers Mark Cadwallader and Andy Brown are fit after they hobbled off against Rhyl, while defender Tony Davies will be assessed after playing through injury.

Buckley Town kick-start their season at home to Porthmadog tomorrow afternoon.

The Flintshire side suffered a 2-0 defeat to Rhyl in the Cymru Premier League Cup back on August 3, that exit preventing them from playing in the second round the following weekend.

And with 17 teams in the second-tier, Buckley missed out on the opening weekend of the season last weekend, meaning that it will have been three weeks since their last game when Porthmadog visit Globe Way.

Dan Moore's men will be looking to mark their return to action with a home success over Porthmadog as they strive to improve on an eighth placed finish last term.

Rhyl, who have beaten both Buckley and Flint this season, will be looking to add Llangefni Town to their list of scalps at Belle Vue tomorrow, while Guilsfield, narrowly beaten by Prestatyn last week, entertain Llanrhaeadr.
