Russell won't crow.

Byline: JOHN BRIDGWATER

WELSHPOOL look to tighten their grip at the top of the Cymru Alliance in today's trip to Lex XI.

The Maesydre men opened up a threepoint lead after last weekend's 2-0 success over Halkyn but manager Russell Cadwallader admitted his side were still not firing on all cylinders.

"We're eking out results at the moment and we're battling through games, " he said.

"We're not playing particularly well but the fact we're managing to pick up wins is putting the pressure on the teams below us."

Paul Ingram is still unavailable but Geraint Windsor proved an able deputy in the heart of the defence against Halkyn last week.

Former Lex XI striker Steve Bird, who joined Pool two months ago, is pressing for his first start against his old club while Neil Pryce is also in the frame.

Guilsfield are boosted by the return of skipper Andrew Watkins today at fellow strugglers Holywell Town.

The defender steps back after being unavailable for last Saturday's 3-3 draw against Lex XI as the villagers hope to be at full strength for a crunch encounter in their quest to ease their basement fears.

"We've not been good travellers this season so it's a massive game for us, " said boss Ray Jones. "The important thing is that we don't lose."

Steve Pritchard, with a hamstring injury, faces a fitness test.
