LLANRHAEADR make the trip to managerless Bangor City bidding to close the gap at the top of JD Cymru North on Saturday.

The North Wales club parted company with manager Steve Vaughan last week and have since been linked to Liverpool legend John Barnes as a possible successor.

The villagers make the trip focusing on their own form and sitting second in the table.

Llanrhaeadr make the trip without Marc Griffiths, Dan Weaver and Tom Bailey through injury but Tom Gale returns to contention.

Senior player Griffiths backed Llanrhaeadr to avenge last season’s defeat at the hands of the Citizens.

“We suffered a heavy defeat at Bangor last season,” said Griffiths. “We have learned a lot of lessons since and it’s a good test to see how far we have come as a management team and group of players.”
