DAN MOORE expects to see a hungry and determined Buckley Town team when Llanfair United visit Flintshire tomorrow.

Some “honest conversations” have been had between Moore and his players this week after Buckley suffered a 3-1 defeat at Ruthin Town.

That loss mean Buckley have won just two of their eight outings this term, a run that has left them 13th in the table.

And with 15th placed Llanfair heading to Globe Way, boss Moore wants to see an upturn in performances.

“We feel like we have under-achieved so far this year,” said Moore. “And after having some honest conversations this week, the players have acknowledged that the overall mindset of the group hasn’t been what it has been over the past two seasons, in terms of showing the required levels of hunger and desire to do the ugly stuff well.

“We expect to see an improvement on that front going into tomorrow in a game which we know we will have to be at our best in to get anything from.”

Buckley’s search for points hasn’t been helped by injury and suspension, but with Callum Humphries, Aled Bellis and Kieron Moore all back in the squad for tomorrow’s home game, Moore is confident things will improve.

“We have struggled to show some consistency in our selection so far this season due to injuries and suspensions but now we appear to be moving into a period of stability which we know will help us pick up some positive results,” added Moore.

Penrhyncoch, who entertain Buckley next week, make their way to high-flying Conwy Borough tomorrow.
