DERBY day at Mount Field pits Llanfair United at home to Llanrhaeadr in JD Cymru North on Saturday (2.30)

The hosts go into the game desperate for points following a difficult return to the second tier with the club currently propping up the remainder of a competitive division.

In contrast Llanrhaeadr go into the game with confidence high and in mid-table.

United manager Rhys Stephens said: “They’ve had a really good start to the season and proved they’re a good side at this level.

“They’re always really competitive games against each other and we need to start winning games so I’m hoping it will be a great local derby that we can get a positive result from.”

Llanrhaeadr go into the game as favourites but senior player Marc Griffiths insisted it would be another battle.

“You can ignore league position and form for this one, It’s a 50/50 game,” said Griffiths. “Our record against Llanfair hasn’t been great over recent times and we will be looking to put that right.”

Meanwhile Penrhyncoch face another stern test with leaders Prestatyn Town the visitors to Cae Baker.

Manager Gari Lewis said: “We were punished for second half mistakes at Llandudno last week so obviously need to improve with our defensive shape and decision making.

“Our young lads will have learned from the match and this week we have three of the senior lads back while Jon Foilgno will have a fitness check.”

Lewis insisted Prestatyn deserved praise for their campaign so far.

“They are full of class and have a super manager and regardless of the budget and squad he has he still has to manage and coach them well and he is does it superbly.

“They are the best side and we will enjoy the massive challenge.”

Meanwhile Guilsfield host Llandudno with the villagers striving to maintain their bright form in the league this season.
