HOLYWELL TOWN’S hunt for a Welsh National league and cup double continues this weekend when they host Llay Welfare in a Premier Division quarter-final, writes PHIL JONES.

Manager John Haseldin, who hopes home fans turn out in force, said: “We had a large away following last week at Castell Alun and I’m hoping that our loyal supporters again come out in their numbers to get behind the team on Saturday as they can be the difference in tight games.

“Llay are a good side and it will be another tough game for us. They are a tight group that can beat anyone on their day and have had some notable results of late.”

Matty Hughes and Jacob Wise miss out but set to return are James Graham and Dafydd Griffith.

Llay boss Mike Gadie knows his side will be up against it.

He said: “Our supporters will see the trip as David versus Goliath and we are aware we will start as underdogs.

“We can turn up with absolutely no pressure on us.

“The lads know that if they are all at it then we can give anyone around this area a real game of football, but we are playing against the very best in our league currently.

“They are expected to win and should do but we’ll be ready no doubt about it.”

Josh Russell is called up after scoring six goals last week for the reserves.

Saltney Town will make changes for the visit of Plas Madoc in the day’s other last eight tie.

Midfielder Paul Johnson is back but boss Andy Dutton was unhappy with last week’s performance in the defeat to Chirk and may switch things around.

Josh Williams. Ramone Nelson and Nathan Jones are also expected to return for Madoc.

In the Division One Cup, Coedpoeth United play host to Mynydd Isa Spartans and manager Karl Fenlon said: “Having drawn 1-1 already this season we know we’re in for a tough game.”

Matty Thomas, Andy Griffith and Olly Lewis miss out but Mike Taylor is in the squad.

Isa’s Harvey Hammersley and Mark Atkinson are also ruled out.

Mynydd Isa are also hoping for cup success in the Reserves and Colts Cup at Llay Welfare.

Brymbo host Rhydymwyn while double-chasing Connah’s Quay Nomads will be looking to make home advantage count against Cefn Mawr Rangers.

There are two ties in the Reserves Division Cup with Gresford Athletic making the trip to Ruthin Town while Penycae have a derby date at home to Rhos Aelwyd.
