Colwyn Bay will be looking for a repeat of their impressive victory at playoff chasing Workington when they travel to Mickleover Sports on Saturday. The Derbyshire outfit are just 8 points ahead in the Evostick Northern Premier.
Form for this fixture is difficult to assess, as Mickelover haven’t played in the league since the 28th December, and it is difficult to predict what impact this is likely to have. The Seagulls will also have had 2 weeks off when this fixture arrives since their first win in 8 when beating Workington in early January.
It will be important for both team’s players that they have fully prepared for this fixture in training and maintaining their match fitness. The proper nutrition including protein supplements are key to performance and recovery, and will play an important part in the preparations for this match.
It has been well documented in recent weeks that the training sessions at Colwyn Bay have benefitted from boxer Derry Matthews, who has put players through their paces at his Liverpool based gym. It is likely the WBO Lightweight Challenger will have stressed the importance of protein shakes, supplements and a healthy diet as key to maintaining physical performance.
This fixture could see the debut for new loan signing Joe Williams, who has signed from Wrexham as a potential replacement for top scorer Zac Corbett. Fellow new signing Connor Roberts-Nurse is also in contention to make his debut.
