Frustrating wait for Mouse clearance

IT looks as though Colwyn Bay will again be without Moustapha Saiel for Saturday’s home game against Boston United (3pm), with further delays over his international clearance.
The 20-year-old midfielder, who played for Senegal First Division club ASC Yeggo last season, signed for the Seagulls nearly a month ago, but FIFA clearance has still not come through, with delays, it seems, over paperwork coming from the Senegalese club.
With Paulo Mendes still side lined with a broken foot, manager Frank Sinclair must rely on the same squad that lost 2-0 at home to Chorley on Tuesday.
The Bay go into the game still looking for their first goal as well as their first win of the league campaign and they face a tough test against a Boston side who have won both their opening games, despite a big injury list.
“Our pre-match preparations, which are so important, have been badly disrupted in both our opening two games for various reasons, so hopefully we can get our proper preparation done this time to help us get back on track,” said Sinclair.
“Obviously Boston will be coming with their tails up after two opening wins so it will be a tough game, but I’m looking for our players to meet the challenge and up their game after Tuesday.”
Boston have been hit by a number of injuries which manager Dennis Greene says has really stretched his squad, but after a home win over Barrow last weekend, they gained an excellent win at Brackley on Tuesday.
“Our away form let us down last season and that is something we are really looking to improve,” said the Boston boss this week.
