Colwyn Bay manager Kevin Lynch expects to have the majority of his injured players available for Saturday’s massive basement battle against bottom three rivals Mickleover Sports.
Jack Kelleher, whose loan spell from Morecambe has been extended until March 28, Johnny Gorman, Antonie Boland, Stephen Wilson and Shaun Dowling were all able to train on Thursday to put themselves in contention and the only doubt is Jordan Harper who the manager rates as having “an 85 per cent chance” after suffering severe bruising in last week’s defeat at Blyth Spartans.
The Seagulls are also expecting to announce a major new signing over the weekend with a player who has had first team experience with a Premiership club and who the manager says would be “a big coup for the club”.
Meanwhile the players will know they need a win against third-bottom Mickleover who are currently five points ahead of the Bay, having played a game more.
The Derbyshire side go into the game on the back of four successive league defeats in which they have scored only one goal, and have had just one victory in the last 10 games (seven defeats and two draws).
“We had them watched on Tuesday (a 2-0 home defeat to 10-man Blyth) so we know their strengths and weaknesses, but I just hope the pitch is not as heavy as it was against Barwell in our last home game because that would a big leveller” warned the manager.
