MARC LIMBERT, Bangor City’s captain and driving force, will return to action tonight in the Loosemores’ Cup semi-final first leg game at Rhyl.
A one match ban kept the midfielder on the sidelines on Saturday, when City extended their long success run by gaining a 1-0 result over Aberystwyth Town.
Another possible line-up choice could be latest striker signing Karl Noon, who joined from Southport and had a 15 minutes’ introduction as a sub at the weekend.
Otherwise, Bangor will have the same squad, who banked three league wins in eight days to firm up their fourth placing, just outside the league’s Uefa qualifying frame.
City boss Nev Powell said: “We have had three close games with Rhyl, pulled off a win and a draw at Belle Vue previously and will go into this game aiming to make sure we have the chance to finish the job in the second leg.
“The club have not enjoyed any cup success for the past three seasons, which has been out of character, and we are very keen to achieve something this time.”
Rhyl will be without recently-signed striker Marc Lloyd Williams against his old club, writes Mike McEvoy.
The prolific goal-getter, signed from Newtown a fortnight ago is ineligible for the visit of City tonight.
But boss John Hulse remains upbeat as Rhyl look for a lead to take to Farrar Road for the return leg in two week’s time.
“We produced a good performance on Saturday and apart from missing Marc and our long-term injured pair James Brewerton and Jimmy Kelly, everyone is available,” said Hulse.
Greg Stone returned to action in the 2-0 win at the weekend and could keep his place in the side.
