Pembrokeshire Football League fixtures for Saturday, December 14th (2pm):

Division 1:

Fishguard Sports 2-2 Clarbeston Road

On paper.....actually scrap what it says on paper. It's Clarby.

They seemed to be building a head of steam before losing 7-3 in the West Wales Cup at St Josephs Saturday, and that was after leading at half time.

Fishguard meanwhile, caused Penlan more problems than a 4-0 full time score suggested, and the surface at Tregroes was noticeably heavy. 

Having had more rain this week I expect similar conditions Saturday, which could make for a tight, scrappy game.

With that in mind I don't envisage a goal fest, and in a match which will have the extra spice of Jac Pepper and Keegan Summers returning to their former club, I'm going to kop out and say a draw.

Goodwick United 4-0 Pennar Robins

For different reasons, both sides had massive results Saturday.

Goodwick beat Bridge 3-2 in the West Wales Cup while Pennar won against Narberth - a result which took Chris Lloyd's team out the bottom two.

The manner of that first league win, with a dramamtic late goal from Danno Kitts, should mean they will be buoyed at Phoenix Park although it is still hard to see them getting anything.

Wayne O'Sullivan's side have won every league and cup game since losing to Carew on October 12th, and he won't want any drop in standards here.

This game is almost a free hit for Pennar. Their match at Saundersfoot on December 28th will be anything but. 

Hakin United 4-0 Saundersfoot Sports

Hakin had to dig very deep to beat Ynystawe on Saturday, but they came through it.

You wouldn't expect an uncomfortable afternoon again here but then they are missing Adam John, Shane Walsh, and Jaden Chapman through suspension with all three sent off on the weekend. Nicky Woodrow has also missed the last two games through injury but The Vikings should still have too much for the visitors.

Saundersfoot have had a fortnight off to regather and while little is expected of them here, they need a performance and some momentum. As already mentioned, the game that follows this one will be pivotal.

Merlins Bridge 4-1 Neyland

Contrasting day for these two Saturday. Bridge lost their grip on the West Wales Cup, while Neyland turned in a real 'backs to the wall' display to win at Pengelli.

A wonderful goal from Jason Griffiths and some good saves from young keeper Jake Payne helped them along the way and while the result should really boost them, the reality is in Division 1 they are still just a point above the drop zone.

The upshot for The Wizards is they can now put greater focus on a league title that has eluded them since 2011/12, and with an away game in Carew to come straight after Christmas, three points here is a must.

Monkton Swifts 3-2 Carew

After ten wins from ten, the first hiccup came for Monkton on Saturday. But going out the West Wales Cup didn't derail their title challenge last season and it can't this time either.

Ben Steele was on target again Saturday despite the defeat and they now enter a crucial two games in their trophy defence - Carew home and then Hakin away.

The Rooks have been up and down thus far and despite beating St Clears 4-0 Saturday, with two goals for Scott Ferney, didn't hit top gear.

Monkton top the table with six wins from six and while I think both sides will cause each other problems, the consistency of the leaders thus far edges me towards them. 

Narberth 2-1 St Clears

To be fair to St Clears they have only named a bare XI in their last two games, but have not capitulated in either. Saturday they play a side from who they took one of their two league points thus far, with a 1-1 draw in September.

Narberth had started well but have had a bad two weeks - being hammered by Bridge before that late loss in Pennar. 

So this is a game St Clears can and must compete in, and I'd expect Craig Weston to underline this is a chance of a result.

But home advantage sways me narrowly towards the Bluebirds.
