LLANDUDNO Town’s bid to catch up in a title race dominated by Prestatyn Town, who lead by 15 points, will get a boost with the arrival of a Welsh Premier forward.
Gwyn Peters, out of favour at home club Caernarfon Town, has signed for the Seasiders and will be given an instant debut against Flint Town today.
Maesdu Park’s second-versus-joint-third showdown is the Alliance’s match-of-the-day, with an obvious bearing on the championship struggle.
Llandudno’s joint manager, James Cornish, said: “This is a really big game and we will have the same squad as won 3-0 at Penrhyncoch last week, plus Gwyn, who can play anywhere up front.”
Unbeaten in seven games, Llandudno won 2-1 at Flint on October 13 and see the completion of the double as confirming their status as the only real threat to pacemakers Prestatyn.
Prestatyn's player-manager Neil Gibson will be putting himself through a late fitness test before deciding about his comeback at Glantraeth, writes Mike McEvoy.
Defender Gibson opted out of last Saturday's 6-0 win at Ruthin Town to give his troublesome ankle a further week to heal and is hopeful of putting in an on-field appearance at some stage as the runaway title-favourites look to extend their lead over the field.
Prestatyn are also hoping that striker Jon Fisher-Cooke, who is recovering from a niggling hamstring injury, will also come through a late test after deciding to delay his return following a reaction to a strenuous training session.
"The pitch is likely to be particularly heavy after all the rain so neither player will want to make a rash decision with 12 matches of the season still to go," said assistant manager Martyn Jones.
Prestatyn will definitely be without defender Russell Jones who is working, but Dave Hayes has reported fit again following a stomach upset.
Buckley Town boss Simon Sedgwick has moved to bolster his squad in a bid to ease the gathering basement clouds, writes John Bridgwater.
The Globe Way men, who host Guilsfield, welcome midfielder Mike Lewis back from Mynydd Isa while front runner Simon Holloway has also rejoined from Ruthin Town.
Other newcomers are striker Mattie Phillips from Connah's Quay Nomads, defender Ashley Durham from Brynford United and keeper Andy Hughes.
