COLWYN Bay are firm favourites to win today’s FA Cup qualifying clash with Parkfield, but manager Gary Finley is wary of their threat.
And he’s aware the minnows have already pulled off one giant-killing act in this season’s competition.
In the previous round, he Northern Counties East League team from Rotherham won 2-1 against Alsager Town, who are just three places behind the Bay in the Unibond Division One South.
But Colwyn will go into the game full of confidence, having stretched their unbeaten record to eight games with Tuesday night’s 2-0 triumph over Kidsgrove Athletic.
With central defender Iain Swan back from holiday, and striker Anthony Murt expected to be fit, Bay should be at full strength.
The Seagulls needed a replay to beat lower league side Congleton Town in the previous round, winning 5-1 away after being held 2-2 at Llanelian Road.
“I arranged to get a couple of reports on Parkfield this week, but we’re playing well at the moment and have every reason to feel confident,” said the Bay boss.
“The players are looking forward to each game and want to keep our unbeaten run going.”
