CORWEN have a secret weapon in their bid for a crucial three points at Porthmadog - new boss Sion Tudor Jones.

Tudor Jones was Porthmadog assistant manager until just over a month ago, and although he is unavailable to take charge of tomorrow’s match, he’s been passing on nuggets of information to Nick Jones.

Corwen assistant Jones said: “Sion has been passing on some things that we can use to our advantage.

“We are aware of their strengths and hopefully we’ve identified areas where we can exploit them as well.”

There’s just three points separating the duo, who occupy the second-tier drop zone, and Jones knows the importance of a positive result tomorrow.

“It’s a ‘six-pointer’,” continued Jones. “We’ve proved that we are no pushovers in recent weeks and we are starting to look like a tier two team, so hopefully we can go there and cause them some problems by having a go at them.

“The lads are full of confidence at the moment, they’re buzzing for the game, and we can go and give Porthmadog a real test.”

Goalkeeper Dylan Roberts and midfielder Lewys Turner remain sidelined for Corwen, who are able to call on the services of James Davies and Owen Cordiner, who scored a hat-trick for the reserves in their win at Queen’s Park last week.

Jones watched the second string’s victory, adding: “Owen was very good. There is plenty of talent in the reserve team, which is good for the future.”

Llandudno and Ruthin, two teams looking over their shoulders, clash at Maesdu Park.
