LLANFAIR United manager Rhys Stephens has insisted his side will not head to Colwyn Bay to make up the numbers on Saturday.

The Mid Wales side make a first ever trip to Llanelian Road following Bay’s decision to return to Welsh football in the summer after three decades in the English non league.

Despite struggling to make an impact on the pitch so far the North Wales club has been boosted by significant gate increases throughout the first few months of the season.

Stephens said: “ Colwyn Bay is a club full of history and it will be great to go to such a great set up.

“However we will be looking to go there to get something and not just for the day out.”

United have endured a testing start to life back in the second tier and a last minute penalty save denied them a point at home to Rhyl last week.

However Stephens remains upbeat and confident his players toil would soon be greater rewarded in league points.

Stephens said: “We’ll be looking to build on a couple of positive performances even though we haven’t had the results.”
