Rhyl FC Ready For Home Test Against Leeds United

Rhyl are preparing to take on Leeds United at the Corbett Sports Stadium in North Wales this month.

Championship club Leeds are sending a team to take on Huws Gray Alliance club Rhyl on Tuesday, November 21 (7.30pm).

The Yorkshire club have said they will include first team squad players in their line-up against Rhyl, although manager Thomas Christiansen is under pressure after Leeds suffered six defeats in their last seven fixtures.

Their 3-1 defeat against Brentford at Griffin Park put Christiansen under pressure – and the next fixture for United is against Middlesbrough, who have ex-Swansea City and Leeds manager Gary Monk in charge.

Leeds are undergoing a renaissance this season after a number of changes off the field including a change in ownership which have seen controversial owner Massimo Cellini leave the club and Andrea Radrizzani take over.

Rhyl FC have confirmed that advanced tickets can be purchased at home using the on-line ticket office.

With demand expected to be high for this match, spectators are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to avoid large match day queues.

Ticket prices for the matches: Adults £8, Concessions £6, (OAP and Blue Badge holders), children up to age 16 £3.

Rhyl are among five Alliance clubs who have applied for the licence which will allow them to be promoted to the Welsh Premier League.

The five are Airbus Broughton, leaders Caernarfon Town, Flint Town United, Porthmadog and Rhyl.

Rhyl notched their third successive Huws Gray Alliance win with a dramatic 3-2 success at Flint Town United in their latest fixture.

They have enjoyed a resurgence since manager Mark Connolly took over and the promotion-chasing Lillywhites are seventh, 10 points behind leaders Caernarfon Town ahead of their trip to Caersws on Saturday (2.30pm).

Tom Walsh (2) and Gerwyn Jones scored for Rhyl, who twice hit back from a goal down.

Captain Carl Rodgers and Kyle Smyth were on target for Flint, but they were beaten in the last minute when Walsh netted his second for Rhyl. Goalkeeper Rory Crowther made a series of good saves for the visitors.

Caernarfon are currently two points ahead of Airbus in the Alliance and both have played 12 fixtures. Denbigh Town are third with a game in hand and their next fixture is at home against Airbus.

Haverfordwest County, Llanelli Town and Penybont have applied from the Welsh League, although County have made it clear they will only accept promotion if the JD Sports Welsh Premier is restructured.

Alliance fixtures next weekend:

Friday: Denbigh Town v Airbus Broughton.

Saturday: Gresford Athletic v Ruthin Town, Caernarfon Town v Holywell Town, Caersws v Rhyl, Holyhead Hotspur v Flint Town United, Penrhyncoch v FC Queens Park, Porthmadog v Guilsfield.
