THE promotion race in North Wales League Division Two will go down to the wire according to Wrexham coach Alan Jenkins.

Fresh from a three-week fixture break, second-placed Wrexham return to action at basement side Abergele on Saturday.

The Bryn Estyn Lane club are currently nine points adrift of leaders COBRA, with Dolgellau lurking ominously in third.

Jenkins said: “Things are getting interesting at the top of the table.

“COBRA and Dolgellau have to play each other and both have some tricky games to get through before things are finally decided.

“I do think it’ll go the distance this season and we need to keep winning to maintain the pressure on them both.”

The visitors will be clear favourites tomorrow against an Abergele side who have lost all 18 league games this term.

Jenkins has a near full-strength squad at his disposal and is relishing a return to competitive action

He added: “We’ve a couple of injuries but should be able to put a strong squad out for Saturday and the players seem excited and positive. The games are all important ones now but everyone is smiling.

“Being at the top end of the table, still in the challenge, is where we want to be at this stage of the season. The Abergele pitch is quite good so we’re looking at being able to run what ball we get and produce an entertaining display with a few tries and a win.”

Dolgellau head to Llanidloes, while Colwyn Bay host Welshpool, Bangor visit Rhyl and Nant Conwy seconds entertain Newtown.

Resurgent Flint are looking to extend their superb run of form in their home clash with Division Three rivals Denbigh seconds.

Four successive league victories have pushed the Cae-y Castell side to fourth in the table and head coach Aled Davies is looking to finish the campaign with a flourish.

He said: “We want to end this season on a real high.

“The team spirit and resolve has been massive of late and our results reflect that.

“It’s vital we don’t take our eye off the ball with the finish so near. Denbigh won’t be an easier fixture, and they will want some pay back after we beat them earlier in the season.”

Leaders Shotton host Pwllheli seconds, title rivals Machynlleth head to Menai Bridge, while Holyhead host Llangefni seconds.

Division One strugglers Mold are in action at Pwllheli, Llandudno visit Llangefni, Denbigh head to Nant Conwy while Ruthin welcome Bethesda.
