Things looking up on and off pitch for troubled Llanelli
LLANELLI head to Bangor tomorrow (2.30pm) boosted by the news that their financial problems could be resolved within the next few weeks.
Chairman Nitin Parekh has assured the Welsh Premier League he will honour his commitments as the club struggles with money worries.
The players are still owed a sum in unpaid wages, while there are debts with other creditors that need to be settled.
But Parekh this week submitted a written rescue plan and league officials are cautiously optimistic that the future of the Reds could soon be secure.

"I spoke to him Nitin, he said everything's in line for it, so touch wood we can move on from here, put the past couple of months behind us and get on with it," said manager Andy Legg.
"It's been difficult for Steve (Jenkins) and myself. I like to do my job properly and at the moment I'm really frustrated because we're not training at all.
"But we won't desert the lads, we'll stick in with them and whatever will be, will be."
Llanelli head to North Wales after a morale-boosting 6-3 Word Cup win over Afan Lido on Tuesday.
Adam Davies, Craig Moses, Geoff Kellaway, Antonio Corbisiero, Lloyd Grist and Chris Venables were on target for the home side.
That followed on from a hard-fought draw at Airbus last weekend when Venables again got on the scoresheet.
"I'm delighted for the boys, it's been a very difficult time for them," Legg added.
"I'm really proud of them, they deserve a right good pat on the back. Airbus knocked in five last week and is a difficult place to go.
"We were down to the bare bones, we had only 12 players available and could possibly have nicked it at the end.
"They deserve a lot of credit and I just hope things turn around soon."
Bangor are third in the table, having won six out of their nine matches so far.
Llanelli sit eighth, though they have played a game less.
The Reds' first target is to make their way into the top six of the league before the mid-season split.
