CORWEN start a crunch run of league fixtures at Penrhyncoch tonight with smiles back on the players’ faces.

The newly-promoted outfit picked up their first point of the campaign on Saturday courtesy of a 2-2 draw at Llanfair, Joe Williams, above, and Matthew Williams finding the net.

Corwen head to Penrhyncoch this evening, before visiting Guilsfield at the weekend and finishing the month with a home clash against Gresford.

Goalkeeper coach Nick Jones said: “The next three games are massive. We want to come out of the next three with a minimum of a point from each.

“The lads are upbeat heading into the game after picking up their first point of the season against Llanfair.

“There were smiles in the changing rooms and we will look to take that atmosphere into Penrhyncoch.”

Jones, who took charge of Corwen on Saturday in the absence of boss Danny Jellicoe and assistant Tommy Mutton, has done his homework on tonight’s hosts.

“It is not an easy place for anyone to go to, but we will be prepared and I will get information on them.

“We will know what we want to do and we will know what they do.”

Lewys Turner and Tom Williams are expected to miss the trip for Corwen.

Llanrhaeadr, who have surprisingly found themselves amongst the early pacesetters, head to Colwyn Bay tonight, while Porthmadog entertain Llangefni and Rhyl welcome Ruthin to Belle Vue.
