ALTHOUGH manager Gus Williams is working on bringing in an addition to the squad, he will have an unchanged squad on duty for Saturday’s 600-mile round trip to Lowestoft.
A deal on the additional player could be completed next week and although the manager is keeping things close to his chest for now, he added: “Players coming in to strengthen the squad will already be tried, tested and trusted at this level of football.”
The Seagulls have slipped into the relegation positions with their recent poor run of results and the manager says : “We know the severity of the situation we are in. The league table doesn’t lie and the players must understand every game from now to the end of the season is crucial.
“We have shown glimpses of the way we want to play, but we have to start keeping some clean sheets to give ourselves a chance of getting the wins we need. It would be nice to start at Lowestoft; it is a long way to go to come back with nothing.
“This is the longest trip for an away league game we are ever likely to have, but it highlights the club’s commitment to staying in this division that they have agreed for the players to travel down the day before and stay overnight, so we can have the best possible preparation.”
Lowestoft have lost only once in their last six home games and despite having the second worst away record in the division, their home form has kept them in a mid-table position, seven points ahead of Colwyn Bay having played one more game.
Marc Williams will travel with the squad and the managers reported; “He is closer to completing his rehabilitation from injury, which is good news.”
Colwyn Bay: Sanna, Rees, Taylor, Moss, Wilson, Lea, Royle, Anoruo, Noone, Hopley, Baynes, Bove, Buckley, Haywood, Saiel, Olapade.
