MOLD face another trip in the Premier Division tomorrow - and they’ll be hoping it’s a bit easier than their last away day.

George Deniz’s side heads to Mochdre tomorrow, seven days after they lost out at leaders Menai Bridge.

Skipper Deniz was pleased with the batting display at Bridge, especially from young opener Ewan Hill.

He impressed with Mold’s second and third teams last season and was the top run scorer in North Wales.

Now being given his chance with the first team, Hill top scored with 78 at Menai Bridge.

“He’s got a lot better and he’s getting used to it,” said Deniz.

“It’s a lot about confidence.”

Jakeem Forde was missing last weekend after contracting Covid-19 and he is unavailable for the next two weeks as he is with a Barbados U19s team in South Africa.

Usman Butt (pictured above) was also unavailable last Saturday, but he is back for the trip to Mochdre.

Looking ahead to tomorrow, Deniz added: “We’re not going with the mindset we’re going to win.

“It’s going to be a good test.

“They’re below us in the league, but I don’t think they should be there.”

Pontblyddyn reach the halfway stage of the season at home to Llandudno.

They were promoted in 2021 and skipper Rhys Jones said: “I think we have done alright.

“We have beaten Northop and beaten Northop away and Gresford away.”

Looking ahead Jones added: “We have just got to win at home.

“We have got a few of the bigger teams at home and one of those is Llandudno.

“If we have got a full strength team, we will give anybody a game at home.

“We will be happy to stay up, but our aim is to finish in the top-six.”

John Bird is Pontblyddyn’s top run scorer this season with around 350, but he is unavailable tomorrow.

Ben Mason and Chris Myles will come into the side.

It’s still very much all to play for in the battle to go up from Division One and there’s a huge local clash lined-up tomorrow.

Hawarden Park, who are second, entertain third-placed Halkyn and at present, there’s only one point between the sides.

Gwersyllt Park, on the fringes of the promotion picture, host Abergele, while mid-table Connah’s Quay are at home to fourth-placed Conwy.

Buckley have the tough task of welcoming unbeaten leaders Denbigh and there’s a long trek for Marchwiel and Wrexham to Bangor Seconds.

The other match sees Dolgellau at Llanrwst.
