West Wales FA Intermediate Cup Round One (2pm kick offs):

The West Wales Cup kicks off tomorrow, and as always, I expect there will be contrasting motivations for Pembrokeshire teams.

Some will harbour genuine hopes of a place in the final at the Liberty Stadium come May, some will be targeting a win to inject momentum into a difficult season, and others will simply be delighted at an away trip, coupled with a bus and some 'team bonding'.

The only all Pembrokeshire League tie sees 205/16 winners Goodwick United go to St Clears.

Wayne O'Sullivan's team should prevail, but as the cliche goes, The Saints have nothing to lose and can afford to have a real go on their home patch.

But if Goodwick, with young guns Jordan Griffiths and Rowan Nicolson again firing last week, play to their capability it will be very difficult for the hosts.

In-form Carew host Swansea League Division Two side North End.

The latter have only played two league games thus far and are yet to win, and The Rooks, boosted further by the triple signing of Sam Christopher, brother Jack, and Rob Whitfield, will be confident of progressing.

However - they should be wary that the visitors shocked Merlins Bridge at The Racecourse in the same competition last season, and also won promotion from their own Division Three.

For that alone, Carew can ill afford complacency.

So for reasons already mentioned, I don't expect Merlins Bridge to take Swansea League Division Three Landore lightly at The Racecourse.

The size of the Bridge squad this campaign means they are well equipped to handle the demands of the league and three different cup competitions - but I suspect Nathan Thomas will pick strong to avoid lightning striking twice.

And if his side performs, and Nathan Greene's prolific form continues, they will go through.

Another Pembrokeshire side facing Swansea League opposition are Neyland, who host Division Two team Kingsbridge Colts.

This game now takes on extra significance for The Nomads, who need to restore some momentum after that 10-2 thumping at Clarbie.

The Colts are another team yet to properly get going in terms of matches, losing their only league game thus far 6-1 to Treboeth United.

It's hard to judge on the basis of one result, but The Nomads will fancy a return to winning ways.

Ironically, the afore mentioned Treboeth United are at home to Milford United, and that success at Kingsbridge was actually their first of the season.

The Robins have struggled badly in this campaign, but with key defender William Goodall now returned, they were much improved at Merlins Bridge last week.

Adrian Hutchings will be searching for further improvements here, as well as a morale boosting win.

A tough task lies ahead for the West Dragons, as they take their fluctuating form to Swansea Division One side Malsters Sports.

Malsters have won six of their seven league games thus far, but their visitors did bounce back from their hammering at Carew with an 8-3 win over Pennar Robins on Saturday.

The Dragons do have the capability to cut through sides in attack, and if their front three of Jordan Richards, Scott Crawford, and Tony Evans can get enough ball supplied - then they can prevail.

Both sides will be desperate of a win at Clydach Sports, who host Pennar Robins.

Neath Premier League team Clydach have no points after two league games, and The Robins are on the same tally after six matches in Pembrokeshire's top flight.

But Chris Lloyd's team have showed an ability to score goals these last two weeks, and despite their heavy defeat, struck three times at The Dragons last Saturday through Phil John (2) and Jason Donohoe.

Lloyd and co will want a victory, and hope that sparks league form.

Also yet to get off the mark in the Neath Premier, with three losses so far, are Glynneath Town - and ironically they host another team struggling closer to home, Herbrandston.

Herbie have a solitary win to their name thus far, and things have been made more difficult with long term injuries now to Scott Reid and Alex Jones.

Whilst Oliver West's men will no doubt be eyeing up a win, I suspect the manager will also be hoping for no further casualties to his squad.

Revitalised Narberth host CP Suburbs - and will be heavily fancied against a team currently tenth in the fourth tier of the Carmarthenshire League.

The in-form Dafydd Wright had a hat trick in the 7-0 hammering of Herbie last week, and I dare say, will fancy adding to his season tally here.

Monkton Swifts are on the road, but should also go through against Swansea League Division Three team Wales Tartan.

Having said that, the visitors will be wary of another cup shock, having been knocked out the Senior Cup first round by Hundleton 7-5 two weeks ago.

They will need to shore up at the back to avoid another early exit tomorrow.

Lamphey were much improved last week, with goals from Mike Davies and Sam Southcott seeing them lead Carew 2-1 in the dying minutes before The Rooks levelled late on.

Tomorrow Alan Kitts' men will also be widely tipped to progress, at home to Carmarthenshire League Division Three side Bancffosfelen.

Angle's league form has dipped of late, with wins in their opening three games followed by three defeats since, including last week's 4-0 loss at Goodwick.

Tomorow they will see a chance to put that right at Swansea Division Two side Birchgrove Colts.

The visitors will know little of their opponents, who only have one win and one loss from two leagues so far - but should they travel at full strength, have a great chance of going through.

Elsewhere, Pembrokshire Division Two side Solva go to another side in the Carmarthenshire League, Division One team CK Swiss Valley.

Both have been patchy in their respective leagues so far, and this tie could go either way.

Another of our second tier teams, Fishguard Sports, are home to Carmarthenshire Premier League team Pontlliw.

The Sports looked set to push for promotion this season, and if at full strength, should fancy testing themselves against tough and relatively unknown opponents at Tregroes Park.

Llangwm have made a solid enough start to life in our second tier, and tomorrow welcome Swansea League Division two side South Gower.

The Wasps were boosted by a 2-0 win over Solva last week, and this is another game that appears even on paper.

Two more Division Two sides meet as Lawrenny travel to another Swansea club, Morriston Town.

The latter are second in the early stages of their league, whilst Lawrenny are struggling with three points from their opening five games.

The only two teams outside of Pembrokeshire's top two divisions in West Wales Cup action are Pembroke Boro and Cosheston.

The Boro travel to Swansea Panthers on the back of a 3-0 win at Milford United 2nds last Saturday in Division Three - and will fancy their chances against a team lying second bottom of Swansea's third tier.

The Panthers have played three league games his season - losing two, drawing one, and conceding 18 goals.

Cosheston meanwhile, have won both their Division Five league games thus far and are still in the Senior Cup.

And it will be interesting tie when they host Sandfields - who have also made a great start in Swansea's lowest tier, with 12 points from 12.

Both will see this as a great chance of progressing.

Swansea Panthers v Pembroke Boro

Division One (2.30pm):

Hakin United v Clarbeston Road​

This clash now looks far more intriguing than it would have a done a week ago.

I thought Clarbie would have every chance of beating then leaders Neyland last weekend, but regardless of home advantage, I never envisaged them scroing ten times to do so.

That made it 12 points from 12 for Matthew Ellis and co, and they now sit above champions Hakin, albeit having played two more league games.

The Vikings themselves have had a mixed few weeks.

They lost their unbeaten league record at West Dragons, before back to back wins in the Senior Cup and FAW Trophy that manager Kristan Bennett admitted were not entirely convincing.

They were then frustrated last Saturday when their match at Monkton was called of Saturday morning - and already, will fear a fixture backlog in the league with further cup games scheduled on October 14th and 21st.

So in short, they need to win here to keep in touch at the top - but whilst their much talked about attack will inevitably cause Clarbie problems, Bennett's side will have to be defiant at the back as well.

Daniel Armstrong will have his hands full with Jason Griffiths, last Saturday's double hat trick scorer, while Tom Reubens is one of many others who will ask questions of The Vikings if the Clarbie midfield is given the space.

Hakin always tend to start favourites when at The Obs, but if both sides fire, this could be a cracker.
