EX-Football League campaigners Mike Foster and Aled Rowlands could well resume to provide Porthmadog with a double boost in their return crunch clash with Llangefni Town today.
The Traeth showdown for precious points in the relegation survival scrap is between the bottom pair, who are four points apart.
Foster, who spent his best days at Tranmere Rovers, has been struggling with a hamstring injury, while Rowlands, a former Manchester City youngster, has had a pulled calf muscle.
Porthmadog manager Viv Williams said: “Mike is okay but Aled will be checked out at the last minute and we are keeping fingers crossed.”
Winners four times in six games to bank 12 points out of 18, Porthmadog face what Williams described as “a pivotal set of games in January against clubs nearby in the table.”
Llangefni’s new boss Alex Kevan, taking charge for the first time, with ex-Liverpool ace Phil Boersma as his assistant, will parade five new signings.
The newcomers include three from Kevan’s previous club Colwyn Bay – midfielder Chris O’Brien, left-back John Boardman and defender/midfielder Paul Roberts.
Another midfielder, Gerard Smith, has joined from Welshpool Town, and centre-back Tony Davies is ex-Denbigh Town.
Central defence regular Craig Hogg has shrugged off an injury but forward Danny Roberts is struggling with a damaged groin.
Aberystwyth Town are waiting on the fitness of midfielder Bari Morgan as they look to bounce back from their Boxing Day reverse in today‘s return trip to Haverfordwest, writes John Bridgwater.
Morgan was a notable absentee in the 3-2 defeat against the West Wales side
last week with an injured shoulder that he sustained in the previous outing against TNS. Midfielder Geraint Passmore should be fit.
