MOLD will be hoping to keep hold of their catches when they host Bangor tomorrow.

During last weekend's heavy loss to Brymbo, Mold fielders dropped almost 10 catches, including centurion James Claybrook twice.

"You can't expect to win games if you drop that many," said skipper George Deniz.

"We underperformed and they played well."

On what's likely to occur at home to Bangor, Deniz said: "You never know.

"They're struggling a bit, but they're a very good team.

"I'm a bit surprised to see them below us in the table.

"We're not expecting them to act like a team where they are in the table."

Gareth Davies is unavailable for Mold, with Kieron Coppack coming in for Mold.

"The good thing is we have had a really good start, but we've still got two-or-three good lads to come back."
