Pembrokeshire football fixtures for Saturday, November 4th:

West Wales Intermediate Cup Round Two (2pm):

FC Nedd v Narberth

The Bluebirds will travel full of confidence after a great win at West Dragons on Saturday.

Dafydd Wright is in superb form up front, with the return of Luke Raymond also proving important in recent weeks.

And they can afford to have a real go at an FC Nedd side currently third in the second tier of the Neath League.

The result here won’t define Narberth’s season, but Morgan Preece and Adi Jones will want their team to continue their momentum.

Giants Grave v Pennar Robins

Another side vastly improving side are Pennar, who grabbed their first Division One win of the campaign on Saturday as goals from Phil John and Paul Sly saw off Clarbie Road.

Chris Lloyd’s side will have their work cut out to notch another victory tomorrow, against a Giants Grave team top of the Neath Premier League with 13 points from a possible 15.

But there will be little pressure on The Robins, and if nothing else, Lloyd will want another positive display for his side to take into their crucial league game with Milford United a week on Saturday.

Glynneath Town v Carew

Carew will take encouragement from how Herbrandston fared at Glynneath in the last round – leading 2-0 up with a patched up side before eventually going down 4-2 in extra time.

The hosts also gave Herbie a hostile reception that day, but as long as Carew rise above the rubbish, they should be confident.

Jack Christopher properly announced his arrival at the club with a stunning hat trick against Merlins Bridge in Saturday’s 3-3 draw, and The Rooks are looking more and more accomplished as the season goes on.

Play to their potential here against a Glynneath team second bottom of the Neath Premier – and they will go through.

Hakin United v Dafen Welfare

The Vikings are engrossed in cup competitions at the moment, and having beaten the Carmarthen Stars in the first round, should be confident here against another Carmarthenshire Premier League team.

Dafen are second bottom with five points from seven games, and have the unenviable task of stopping Nicky Woodrow after his four goal haul in FAW Trophy at Cwmcarn last Saturday.

Hakin youngster Ben Fawcett is also looking stronger with every game, and Kristan Bennett’s side are creating chances aplenty.

If the home side score early, then Dafen will have their work cut out.

Kilvey Fords v Goodwick United

The Phoenix Boys have come into real form, top of Division One and in the fourth round of the FAW Trophy after a super comeback win against Penlan.

They were further boosted by the return to action of Rhys Dalling last Saturday, and have every reason to be bullish ahead of their trip to Swansea side Kilvey Fords.

The hosts are fifth in their own top flight, but have shown their fallibility with three league defeats so far.

It won’t be an easy trip for Wayne O’Sullivan’s side, but if they maintain their current standards, they should book their place in round three.

Lamphey v Kingsbridge Colts

The Colts were surprise 3-1 winners at Neyland in the last round, and seek another Pembrokeshire scalp on the road here.

But by their own admission, The Nomads were poor that day, and Lamphey have nothing to fear after a morale boosting 4-1 win over Herbie last week.

The in-form Anthony Webb inspired that success with a well taken hat trick, and he will again be key tomorrow if The Stags are to progress.

Maltsters Sports v Fishguard Sports

Fishguard notched a great win in the first round against a Carmarthenshire Premier League side Pontlliw.

Midfielder Steve Lewis and double goal scorer Jordan White stood out that day, as did keeper David Pepper in a good team display.

But they will need an even bigger collective effort tomorrow against Malsters Sports, who lie third in the top tier of the Swansea League.

After their league defeat against St Clears the previous week, I suspect Fishguard’s priority lies with getting their promotion hopes back on track - but they can still enjoy a big away day here and the pressure is all on Malsters.

Merlins Bridge v Penclawdd

It’s hardly a rocky patch, but The Wizards have had a testing two weeks, losing in the FAW Trophy before having to fight back to draw 3-3 at Carew last week.

The second half introduction of Dai Davies seemingly inspired that response, and it will be interesting to see if he now starts tomorrow at home to Swansea side Penclawdd.

The visitors have lost five of their nine league games in their own Division One this season, and Nathan Thomas will eye a chance for his team to return to winning ways here, especially given they remain unbeaten on The Racecourse in all competitions.

Milford United v St Josephs

The Robins’ only win this season came in the last round at Treboeth, and for confidence if nothing else, they will want another here.

Adrian Hutchings has remained positive and spoken of the improvements his team are making, so with still with no league points to their name, a victory will be good psychologically if nothing else.

The debut of 16-year-old Lewis Tee was a plus point from last week’s defeat against Goodwick, and he may well play again tomorrow against a St Josephs team have been patchy thus far in the Swansea League Division One.

Having said all that, I suspect The Robins would rather win the following week in the league against Pennar, but would love to go into that on a high.

Monkton Swifts v Mountain Dew Inn - postponed

This game has been postponed pending a disciplinary investigation by the West Wales Football Association.

Senior Cup Round Two (2pm):

St Ishmaels v Neyland

Tish have little to lose, and have picked up their Division Two form of late with back to back wins over Johnston and Lamphey.

You feel Andrew Howells’ side will have to be at full strength to have a chance, with Brennan Devonald key to them at the back and Joel Morgans in good touch with five goals in his last two games.

But The Nomads have picked up again after a tricky patch, hammering Monkton at home on Saturday with the ageless Wayne Parry and young Kieron Howells hitting hat tricks.

They overcame a potential banana skin with ease in the last round when they scored five at Kilgetty, and will start favourites here.

Manderwood Pembrokeshire League Division One (2.30pm):

Angle v Herbrandston

Herbie boss Oliver West has already described this as a must win game, and you can see why with his team still locked on three points and second bottom of the table.

They played better against Lamphey than the 4-1 loss suggested, with much of their play going through Ali Ouzman – but they need to shore up at the back if they are to start getting results.

Angle have not played in the league since September 30th, but will be conscious of having lost their last three Division One games after winning their first three.

They too need results soon or they will be looking over their shoulder at those below them.

West Dragons v Clarbeston Road

Two sides that need to bounce back from surprise defeats on Saturday.

The Dragons lost at home to Narberth, and replicating last season’s third placed finish already looks beyond them.

But Steve Allen and Lee Palmer need their side to put in a performance and regain some momentum, with a now crucial Senior Cup quarter final at Carew coming up on November 11th.

Clarbie too will want to go into their quarter final at Hundleton in good shape, after a damaging 2-1 defeat at Pennar last Saturday.

Inconsistency in the league has plagued both teams so far, and yet both are capable of matching anyone when they perform well.

This has the potential to be an enticing game, but both must vastly improve from the weekend.
