THE mood is positive in the Colwyn Bay camp ahead of today’s trip to struggling Shepshed Dynamo.
Wednesday night’s 2-0 home win over Nantwich breathed new life into the Seagulls’ hopes of reaching the Division One South end of season play-offs and helped obliterate the memories of the 4-1 capitulation against Grantham four days earlier.
Striker Lee Spike will be available for the visit to The Dovecote, with midfielders Joe Fowler and Adam Wade also expected back after missing the Nantwich win.
However, injured defenders James Glendenning and Steve Pope are unlikely to play again this season.
Although Colwyn thrashed Shepshed 6-0 at Llanelian Road at the start of the campaign and today’s opponents lie third from bottom, boss Gary Finley is not counting his chickens.
“No two games are the same – we lost 4-1 against Grantham but then had a great 2-0 win on Wednesday,” he said.
“We’ll be taking nothing for granted, but if we show the positive attitude we did against Nantwich there is no reason why we can’t get three points.
“We went into the Nantwich game a bit low on confidence, but a lot of positives came out of it – we showed a lot of character. It’s important now we carry it on and build a winning run.”
Although down in 11th place, Finley believes his team still has a good chance of making the play-offs.
“I believe it will go right down to the wire,” he stressed. “We’ve got to keep picking up points to make sure we’re in the mix.”
