PLAYMAKER John Lawless is racing against time to be fit for Colwyn Bay’s key clash at Quorn this afternoon.
Lawless has missed the last two matches through injury and Seagulls manager Gary Finley has been closely monitoring his progress in training this week.
The manager hopes to have a strong squad available today and was relieved that Tuesday’s away game at Sheffield was postponed because of bad weather.
He said: “We’ve got a few players carrying knocks and James Olsen and Chris Taylor were both struggling for Tuesday. We had another couple of players ruled out by work so it was a bit of a blessing that the game was off.
“We will see how John Lawless is, but we have Lewis Callaghan back after suspension, which is a bonus.”
The Bay lie just five points off the play-off places and will be seeking a fourth win in five starts when they visit Sutton Park.
Colwyn have the psychological advantage of having beaten Quorn 1-0 at Llanelian Road last Saturday.
The manager added: “I understand Quorn have an excellent pitch which will suit us, but to be fair they try to play good football as well.
“They are a young, energetic side and it should be an interesting game.
“We have had three wins and a draw in our last four games and seem to be coming into a bit of form at the right time.
“But with just 13 games to go we must keep picking up points and every game is a big one for us now.”
