MOLD ALEX boss Mike Cunningham hopes his former club Saltney Town don’t ruin his side’s good run tomorrow.

Mold are through to the last 32 in both the Welsh Cup and Welsh Trophy and are one of the favourites to challenge for the Premier Division title.

The only problem on that latter front is that tomorrow’s home game with Saltney will be only their eighth league clash of the season and despite having games in hand they are nine points off top spot.

Cuningham said: “Confidence is high within the group at the moment but we are fully aware of the threat Saltney pose. They have a very strong 11 and it’s important we hit the levels of last week’s performance and if we don’t we will get punished.”

Ryan Coney is banned, Tom Burrows returns but Conner Kendrick’s ankle injury could rule him out

Striker Adi Callaghan and defenders Leon Jones and Ben Barratt miss out for Saltney but Dan Burgess is back.

Mold could be 12 points off top spot before they kick off with leaders Cefn Albion again in action at The Rock tonight when they host neighbours Plas Madoc.

Key defensive duo Nic Jones and Jordan Jones are out and so is Kane Frost.

Josh Valentine returns while Madoc have snapped up Aston Jones from Cefn Mawr Rangers and the experienced centre half will make his debut.

Second-placed Brymbo recall Declan Morgan, Jake Prescott, Chris Boyes and Mark Beech for the visit of Rhos Aelwyd, who are at full strength.

Visitors Rhos have no injuries or suspensions to report so they are hoping to go into the game at full strength.

FC Queens Park are back on home ground and boss Dave Evans is delighted.

Speaking ahead of Chirk AAA’s visit, Evans said: “The last two games have taken a lot out of the team and have both for different reasons been tough to take. Saturday was the harder of the two and to be reduced to 10 men with over an hour to play ruined the spectacle.

“The lads had worked so hard to be in this position and to have the chance snatched away still feels raw. I can’t salute my players enough and Rhyl’s result against Buckley on Tuesday showed how well we played with 10 men.”

Aled Powell is Park’s only absentee while Chirk have Joe Roberts and Callum Taylor in contention to start.

Castell Alun Colts are missing leading scorer Nathan Davies, Josh Coleclough and Rob Darlington for the home game with Rhostyllen.

Luke Walker, Scott Williams and Connor Hodson are back and returning in goal is Adam Thomas.

Adam Williams, Scott Swords and James Selly are all missing for Rhostyllen for whom top scorer Tom Douglas and player boss Warren Duckett are expected to start.

Brickfield Rangers boss Gareth Roberts is forced into a reshuffle at home to Rhydymwyn, with Owen Dobbins, Rhys Brooks and Blake Roberts all back in the mix.

Llay Welfare host Penycae whose manager Ben Heath said: “We have already played at Llay in the cup and a repeat of that performance and result would be accepted.

“New striker Cameron Chambers will make his debut and I can’t wait to see him scoring goals. Also included will be winger Ahmed Ali.”

In Division One, Rhosllanerchrugog name an unchanged starting line-up for their trip to Cefn Mawr Rangers.

Johnstown host Hawarden Rangers while Lex XI will be missing Alun Jones-Parry and Zack Davies for their home clash with Halkyn and Flint Mountain

Leaders Llangollen Town have home advantage over Mynydd Isa Spartans who are likely to provide a recall for Keiran Jones but Aide Davies and Mark Atkinson are ruled out.

Spartans go into the game on the back of a 3-2 Welsh Trophy defeat to Llandudno Albion where the Welsh Alliance side needed extra time to seal their place in the fourth round.

Llanuwchllyn play their re-arranged third round tie tomorrow and Kyle Jones returns for the visit of Llanrug United.

There are two other ties taking place with Llanefydd at home to Nefyn United and Cardiff Draconians making the trip to Cefn Cribbwr.
