WITH two big wins already this season over Warrington Town, Gary Finley’s Colwyn Bay side will aim for a third at Cantilever Park tonight (7.45pm), writes Mike McEvoy.
Bay thrashed the Wire 7-1 at home on New Year’s Day, following on from a 4-0 victory against the Cheshire outfit at Llanelian Road.
“They were two great results, but tonight is a different game as we haven’t played them at their place yet,” said Finley.
There is a doubt over Colwyn centre-half James Glendenning, who went off injured in the second half of Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Gresley Rovers.
Kyle Armstrong is expected to replace him in central defence, partnering Chris Taylor who was red-carded against Gresley but whose subsequent suspension is not expected to apply immediately.
The win against third-placed Gresley, which shifted the Bay up to 11th and still in sight of the play-offs with plenty of games in hand on their rivals, will have boosted confidence.
“I thought we battled really well after losing our two central defenders and going down to 10,” said Finley. “We were hanging on a bit towards the end, but deserved to win for the commitment we showed.”
And Finley added the Bay could still push for promotion.
“Even if we manage to win three-quarters of our games in hand, we can still get right up there,” he said.
