After their first draw in well over a year, Denbigh make the journey to Guilsfield on Saturday in a top-half clash at Clos Mytton.
Guilsfield v Denbigh Town
Location: Clos Mytton, Guilsfield
Competition: JD Cymru North
Town come into this one on the back of a 2-2 draw with Llandudno on Wednesday night. Dewi Llion’s side journeyed to Maesdu Park but found themselves behind after less than two minutes via the boot of former forward Harvey Bennett. Matthew Worrall levelled on nine minutes before Nathan Brown’s 52nd-minute strike turned the game on its head. With five to play Ethan Roberts salvaged a point for the home side.
Denbigh are now five games unbeaten and up to 4th in the JD Cymru North, and have not lost a league match since the end of September. They’ve recorded wins over Flint in the WBS League Cup, Prestatyn, Mold Alexandra and Gresford Athletic in those recent games.
Guilsfield will be playing their first league match since the end of October having been in cup competition throughout November. Last time out they exited the WBS League Cup at home to Mold. Beforehand they faced Cymru Premier side Barry Town United, narrowly exiting the Welsh Cup 1-0 at Jenner Park. Their last league game came against Caersws, winning 3-2 away from home. This will be their first home league game since September 30th.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides since March 2019 when Kristian Pierce’s lone goal proved to be the difference in Powys. The two sides have met 18 times previous, all coming in second tier league action. Each side has eight wins each with two draws. Those matches have an average of 4.4 goals per game, Guilsfield edge Denbigh in terms of goals scored in the fixture (41 compared to 38) averaging 2.8 goals per game to Denbigh’s 2.1.
Guilsfield’s last victory over Denbigh came at Central Park in October 2018, whilst they haven’t won at home against Town since September 2016, in a 5-0 thrashing. Of the current Town squad, just Matthew Worrall and Kristian Pierce have scored for Denbigh in this fixture.
Craig Pritchard could make his 50th league appearance for Denbigh Town this weekend.
Nathan Brown is two goals away from hitting 30 league goals in his Denbigh career.
Jason Foulkes could make his 25th Denbigh appearance in all competitions.
