GUILSFIELD host Mid Wales rivals Penrhyncoch in a Huws Gray Alliance derby on Saturday (2.30).

Both sides have endured frustrating campaigns with the Guils in the bottom half while Penrhyncoch sit in the relegation zone.

However the Roosters make the trip inland with renewed confidence after registering their first win since September with a 3-1 win at Holyhead Hotspur last week.

Manager Gari Lewis remained under no illusion as to the size of the task ahead but hopes to have a stronger squad after making the trip to Anglesey with just 11 players last week and forced to name himself on the bench.

The Roosters have welcomed the return of striker Nashawn Blake from Aberystwyth Town with defender Carwyn Jones heading in the opposite direction.

“I need to sign one or two players having lost three recently,” said Lewis. “We should have players back after travelling with 11 and myself on the bench last week.

“We will keep on going and scrapping for every point while we have hope of staying up and we know Guilsfield are a top side on their day and we will have to be at our best if we are to get something.

Meanwhile Guils manager Nathan Leonard warned against underestimating a side seeking a league double over his side.

“It’s a huge game for us in terms of where we want to be come the end of the season,” said Leonard. “Penrhyn will come in good spirits after last weekend and we know they have good quality.

“They completely dominated us earlier on in the season and thoroughly deserved their win so we must be on it from the first whistle Saturday if we want the points.”

Guilsfield stayed in shape with a 5-0 win against Oswestry Town after their league clash at Buckley Town was postponed on Saturday and Leonard praised his side for their performance against the North West Counties side.

“I was pleased we got a game and although only a friendly we played really well and approached it just like a league game.

“Although we have games in hand the league table does not lie and it hurts to be in the bottom half when I know the level the lads can perform. Only we can start climbing the table with wins.
