CHIRK AAA bid to bounce back from their first defeat of the season when they travel to Rhos Aelwyd on Saturday.

The Colliers were not in action last week and unable to atone for their first defeat of the season the previous weekend which Llanfair United rise to the Ardal North East League summit.

Manager Andy Pryde had no complaints regarding the defeat at United, saying: "We got caught out a few times and fair play to Llanfair, they took advantage.

"We have now regrouped and are looking forward to showing what we are all about at Rhos Aelwyd."

Chirk will be without both Matty Williams and Jake Simms who were shown red at Llanfair but Jack Edwards is available after missing that game.

It will be a tough game at Aelwyd who will be on buoyant mood after last Saturday's 1-1draw at neighbours Cefn Albion.

This will be the third meeting of the season between the clubs with honours even at the moment, Aelwyd winning in the Welsh Cup and Chirk winning the league encounter at Holyhead Road earlier in the campaign.
