Manderwood League and Senior Cup fixtures for Saturday, November 11th:

Senior Cup Round Two (2pm):

Hakin United v Narberth

When this tie was first drawn out, few would have envisaged anything but a Hakin win.

But despite scoring 14 times in their last two games, an FAW Trophy win at Cwmcarn and a West Wales Cup tie against Dafen Welfare, The Vikings will be braced for a tough test tomorrow against a rejuvenated Narberth.

Nicky Woodrow limped off injured in the 6-1 win over Dafen, and if his absence proves to be long term, then Kristan Bennett's side will miss him badly.

They still have attacking options aplenty, with young forwards Adam John and Ben Fawcett continuing to impress week in week out - but if The Bluebirds can somehow shut them out then they have the weapons to cause an upset.

Much has been made of the goals of Dafydd Wright and the form of new signing Luke Raymond, but the likes of co-manager Morgan Preece are also in form and collectively, Narberth are performing well and go to the The Obs with little to lose.

I'd still back Hakin, but not with the same conviction I would have done a few weeks ago.

Score prediction: Hakin United 2-1 Narberth

Senior Cup quarter finals (2pm):

Carew v West Dragons

Arguably the biggest cup clash of the day, and it's The Rooks who will go in with a psychological edge after winning 4-1 when the two met in the league last month.

Carew have lost just once in league and cup action this season, and thus far, there has been nothing to suggest they can't push for honours on all fronts.

Sam Christopher continued his great start at the club with a hat trick last week while Rob Whitfield also struck in their 4-1 win at Glynneath. And whilst they have lost Iwan Izzard for the foreseeable future, Carew now have depth in their squad.

The Dragons meanwhile, are under pressure with the Senior Cup representing their last realistic chance of a trophy this season.

Their 'jekyll and hyde' form continued last week as they blew away Clarbie Road at The Pavilion, with an Ashley Prior hat trick inspiring a 5-2 win.

They are the only team to have beaten either Hakin or Goodwick United thus far, proving what they are capable of when at their best.

Steve Allen and Lee Palmer will need another big display tomorrow from their squad tomorrow, and could do with key forward Scott Crawford returning to scoring form.

​Score prediction: Carew 3-2 West Dragons

Hundleton v Clarbeston Road

Last season's Senior Cup finalists face a potential banana skin here.

And the tie is made trickier by Clarbie's recent dip in form.

They competed well in their 2-1 league loss at Hakin, but have since been beaten by Pennar and were blown away in the first 45 minutes by The Dragons on Saturday, finding themselves 4-0 down at the break.

Amidst all that came a Senior Cup win against another Division Two side in Fishguard, but Clarbie were made to work hard before two late goals saw them through.

But Matthew Ellis and co can ill afford to be below par tomorrow, against a Hundleton team that has already shocked Monkton in the Senior Cup, before seeing off Broad Haven in round two.

A Dylan Davies goal also earned them a creditable draw at Prendergast Villa last week, and I expect they will be fired up to grab the chance to appear in a rare Senior Cup semi-final.

​Score prediction: Hundleton 2-4 Clarbeston Road

Merlins Bridge v Angle

The holders are yet to be tested in the Senior Cup thus far, and will start favourites to progress again tomorrow.

Nathan Thomas' side remain unbeaten at home in all competitions, and notched a good West Wales Cup win over Penclawdd last week with youngster Will Haworth continuing to progress with a brace of goals.

The strike duo of Adam Hawkins and Nathan Greene is stil proving potent, with both also scoring in Saturday's 4-1 win, and if The Wizards are at their best it will be difficult for Angle to get any kind of result.

The visitors have struggled since winning their first three league games, although Josh Clarke proved he is one to watch with two great strikes in the 2-2 draw with Herbie on Saturday.

However, having led 2-0, that was a game that Angle could really have done with winning in order to head to The Racecourse with momentum, but they will perhaps be happy to be labelled underdogs.

​Score prediction: Merlins Bridge 5-1 Angle

Manderwood Pembrokeshire League Division One (2.30pm):

Lamphey v Monkton Swifts

The Stags lost in the West Wales Cup on the weekend, but have enjoyed an upturn in league form with four points from their last two league games.

Much of that has been down to the scoring of Anthony Webb, who struck twice in a 3-3 draw with Neyland before a hat trick at Herbie inspired a 4-1 win for Alan Kitts' team.

Monkton meanwhile, have had West Wales Cup disciplinary issues to deal with this week, but I suspect at least they would have preferred to be removed from that competition than to have been docked league points.

But they now need to get back on track in Division One after a 7-1 hiding at Neyland last time out.

This one looks close to call, but home advantage perhaps makes Lamphey slight favourites.

​Score prediction: Lamphey 3-2 Monkton Swifts

Milford United v Pennar Robins

It's a huge game at Marble Hall, as rock bottom Milford aim for their first points of the season against a Pennar side who only have three themselves.

It would not have escaped the attention of either that Hakin 2nds currently top Division Two, and if they stay there, it could well be these two sides fighting to avoid just one relegation place.

The Robins have shown improvements recently and Adrian Hutchings has not been afraid to freshen things up with young players, with 16-year-old Joel Blair the latest to impress in their loss to St Josephs on Saturday.

But in order to survive, Hutchings will know potential has to be turned into results, starting with tomorrow, and the home side will want influential defender William Goodall back for their biggest game of the season to date.

Pennar meanwhile, will know how crucial a win and subsequent six point lead over their hosts could be.

I suspect their 5-0 cup defeat to Giants Grave on Saturday won't have overly concerned Chris Lloyd, but he will be keen for his side to replicate their last league game, where Paul Sly and Phil Thompson gave them a 2-1 win over Clarbie.

Keeper Carl Rees also impressed that day, and the visitors will be braced for a real battle.

I expect this one to be hard-fought and close.

​Score prediction: Milford United 1-1 Pennar Robins

Neyland v Goodwick United

The Phoenix Boys currently look in formidable form, with a 3-0 win at Kilvey Fords on Saturday their latest impressive win.

And the importance of tomorrow won't be lost on Wayne O'Sullivan and brother Chris. With the sides immediately below them in cup action, a win will open up an eight point lead over Carew and Merlins Bridge and a 10 point lead over Hakin. Even with games in hand, that is a lot of ground to make up.

Jordan Griffiths remains in prolific form - but Jonny Horgan, Kieran O'Brien, and Steve Dockerty are also excelling going forward, while the return of Scott Delaney has undoubtedly bolstered Goodwick again at the back.

Neyland however, have had reason for optimism again after a thumping 7-1 league win over Monkton, before coming through a tricky Senior Cup game at Tish last Saturday.

New signing Jonathan Harris impressed there with two well taken goals, and youngsters Max Bowman-Davies and Kieran Howells, along with ever influential veteran midfielder Wayne Parry, have all been scoring.

But The Nomads will have to be at their very best to stem the Goodwick tide here.

​Score prediction: Neyland 1-3 Goodwick United
