But player-boss Warren Duckett admitted he is thin on the ground for tomorrow’s home clash against Penycae with Steven Allman and himself struggling with injuries.

James Selly is recalled to the side while Brickfield Rangers head to their old Court Road ground to face Rhos Aelwyd, who are without Kian Davies and Ian Hughes.

Queen’s Park have got their campaign back on course and will be looking to stay in the title hunt with a three-point return from their home clash against Rhydymwyn.

Park boss Dave Evans said: “We expect another tough encounter and we know we will have to be at our best to earn the three points.

“Tom Belton made a fantastic return last week and will make his home debut. Sean Dodd will be missing but other the than that we should have a full squad.”

Visitors boss Anthony Weaver revealed he is looking forward to a challenging game and said “Still out through injury is captain Connor Whelan and Jamie Wynne and it is also likely one or two others will cry off.

“Thankfully, Sam Davidson, Chad Shelbourne and Shane Parry return from suspension.”

It is derby day for Castell Alun Colts, who host Llay Welfare.

They have Dain Smith returning while Jack Carden and Tom Adams have been impressing of late and youngsters Ed Brown and Harry Brown continue to keep their places in the squad.

Welfare manager Mike Gadie, who has injury concerns over Ryan Goodband and Jack Mountford, said: “Rhys Lloyd will probably come back into the starting 11 after missing out on a starting spot in the previous two games.

“We really need to get our league campaign back on track, but with this being a derby we expect a really difficult game.

“As long as the lads go into the game with the right mindset I think we should be too strong.”

Llanuwchllyn are at home to Saltney Town for whom Jack Roberts is banned. Jake Gibbons should return after overcoming the sickness bug that ruled him out last weekend.

Manager Mark Holmes will rally the troops though for the visit of double-chasing Holywell Town in the Premier Division League Cup although Chris Bennion’s suspension adds to his problems.

Holywell boss John Haseldin calls up Iwan Rogers and Jack Pennington from the reserves as he targets silverware in this competition.

“We want to keep our winning momentum going so we will be looking to build on last week’s win at Penycae and do everything we can to get through to the next round,” he said.

Mark Connolly, who hit a hat-trick last week, and Tony Roebuck are both unavailable.

The other tie is just down the road at Plas Madoc where Phil Hudson’s Brymbo are the visitors.
