CRISIS club Porthmadog will happily settle for a 1-0 win at the Recreation Ground today.
Port’s 4-0 home win over Caersws in November is their biggest of the season, but boss Osian Roberts says three points is all that matters.
“It has got to be a win, because of our predicament,” said Roberts, whose team have been sucked into the relegation scrap after a three-point deduction.
Port’s troubles have been compounded by four defeats and a draw from five games, and just one league point from 12.
Roberts added: “The performances have been okay and we are not a million miles from getting it right but, in this situation, we have got to try to grind out the right results.
“It is the little things that are important, particularly at the back, and we must take what chances come our way at the other end.”
Teenage midfielder Iwan Thomas will return to the side, as Rhys Roberts and Carl Jones are banned and Clayton Blackmore is unavailable.
Lowly Caersws, hit by three straight losses, will be looking for a much needed win today, writes John Bridgwater.
The Bluebirds remain dangerously placed in a congested relegation battle following their 1-0 defeats against Aberystwyth Town and Bangor City.
Manager Mickey Evans said: “If we keep playing the way we have been, then there’s no reason why we can’t get that win.
“It’s frustrating – I can’t fault the effort and commitment of the lads but we’re getting no luck at the moment. I don’t know what more we can do, apart from hoping that things start to go for us in front of goal.
“It’s got to the stage when I don’t care how we play, as long as we get three points.”
Central defender Colin Reynolds returns after work commitments, Geraint Lewis faces a fitness check on a foot injury and striker Damien Currier is doubtful.
