FAW Trophy Round Five (1.30pm):

Goodwick United v Penydarren BGC

The Phoenix Boys have come through some tough tests in cup action this season - yet this may just be the toughest of the lot.

Penydarren will arrive boasting nine wins from nine games in the South Wales Alliance Premier Division this season, and an overall record of 20 victories in as many league and cup games.

Their last outing was a 4-0 success at Caerphilly Athletic on December 30th, so the prospect of a long journey to Goodwick won't phase them.

But let's not forget, the hosts have lost just once this season themselves, and in recent years have become more than accustomed to winning tight and physical cup clashes.

They will still be missing top scorer Jordan Griffiths, but thus far Wayne O'Sullivan's side have adapted well without him - and the experience of the likes of the player manager himself, brother Chris and Adam Raymond will be essential tomorrow.

But with keeper James Gwilt and the ever growing presence of Scott Delaney at centre back, Goodwick have been organised and resolute defensively, and if they can be solid again tomorrow - they have more than enough going forward.

It's almost too close to call, but alight Pembrokeshire bias leans me towards the home side.

Score prediction: Goodwick United 2-1 Penydarren BGC

Llangefni Town v Hakin United:

It's good to hear The Vikings will travel to North Wales tonight, giving themselves the best possible chance to prepare properly for this tie after what is likely to be a five hour journey.

And waiting for them will be an in-form Llangefni side, second in the Welsh Alliance Division One with 10 wins in 14 matches after beating fourth placed Llanberis 4-0 last time out.

Hakin have had a disrupted period since Christmas, drawing 0-0 at home to West Dragons before having their Senior Cup tie with Neyland called off.

They have every chance tomorrow, but will need to show the attacking form they did in the latter part of 2017. Nicky Woodrow is still a week away from a return and his absence will again be a blow - but via Ben Fawcett, namesake Steele, Justin Harding, Adam John and others, Kristan Bennett's men still have ample potency in attack.

They will need to be solid at the back as well on a big afternoon for Daniel Armstrong at the heart of the back four - but if they can overcome the journey, Hakin can reach the last eight.

Score prediction: Llangefni Town 2-3 Hakin United

Manderwood Pembrokeshire Football League Division One fixtures for Saturday, January 13th (2.30pm):

Clarbeston Road v Milford United

Two sides yet to play in 2018 meet at Clarbie - and both need a winning start for differing reasons.

The home side will want a good January to cement their place in the top half of Division One, and gain momentum ahead of a Senior Cup semi-final with Merlins Bridge in February.

It's hard to know how rusty players will be after a month or so without football, but if Matthew Ellis' side get in the groove going forward, and the likes of Jason Griffiths and Tom Reubens are on song, they will trouble a Milford team who shipped six goals in their last game against West Dragons.

Adrian Hutchings' side have battled hard with a young team all year, but lie 11 points from safety and a return to Division Two looks likely. They have little choice but to go for broke tomorrow and thereafter - which could leave them exposed.

Score prediction: Clarbeston Road 3-1 Milford United

Lamphey v Herbrandston

Last Saturday, Herbie simply had to win against The Dragons to make their mission to stay up possible.

They now lie eight points off their hosts tomorrow with a game in hand, and another victory would bring an unlikely escape closer to reality.

After his four-goal haul last week, it goes without saying striker Scott Reid will again be key for Oliver West's men tomorrow, and I'd expect the visitors, if nothing else, to produce a committed display given the implications of losing.

But Lamphey, boosted by that 2-1 win at Pennar on December 30th, will also be keen to take a big chance - three points here and they take a major step towards safety.

I expect this to be tight, competitive, and possibly scrappy, and one that could go either way.

Score prediction: Lamphey 2-2 Herbrandston

Monkton Swifts v Merlins Bridge

Again, two sides yet to play this side of the New Year.

In fact, Monkton's last game was a 4-0 defeat away to The Wizards, and that came back on December 9th.

Bridge played a week later and notched a vital 2-1 win at Narberth, and tomorrow, they will eye a chance to close the gap on leaders Goodwick to two points.

The Swifts are capable, especially if James Russell is given chances up front - but Bridge have been been efficient and focussed so far and I expect them to arrive at Monkton Lane determined to hit the ground running in 2018.

Score prediction: Monkton Swifts 0-3 Merlins Bridge

Narberth v Pennar Robins

After the first few weeks of the season, both Narberth and Pennar would have been delighted if you told them they would be where they are now by January 2018.

The Bluebirds lie third, and inspired by the goals of Dafydd Wright, are now a match for anyone.

Pennar are down in 11th, but are nine points clear of the drop zone despite appearing odds on to go down after an awful start to the campaign.

But Chris Lloyd's side saw their form dip again pre-Christmas, with back to back defeats against Neyland and Lamphey.

Narberth pushed title chasing Merlins Bridge all the way before losing 2-1 late on in their last game of 2017, and with home advantage, Morgan Preece and co will be favourites here.

Score prediction: Narberth 3-1 Pennar Robins

Neyland v Angle

It has been a mixed season for Neyland to say the least - but they have showed positive signs of late, beating Pennar 5-2 and producing a far better display in Goodwick than the 3-0 scoreline suggested.

With promising youngster Geraint Rees back, and The Nomads seemingly having found an able second keeper in George Incledon to cover Patrick Hannon's on/off availability, I expect their form to pick up in early 2018.

Angle lost their last two games pre-Christmas, shipping nine goals overall to Carew and Lamphey, and I suspect they may have another difficult 90 minutes here.

Score prediction: Neyland 4-2 Angle

West Dragons v Carew

It's getting hard to predict The Dragons.

They win an action packed game 6-3 against Milford, put up a great rearguard to draw 0-0 at Hakin, and then lose 5-4 at lowly Herbie after being 5-2 down with minutes to go.

So they are hardly in freefall - but the remainder of the season does appear somewhat of a rebuilding process for 2018/19. 

But a major positive last week was the hat trick of debutant Liam Sheehan, and together with Scott Crawford, Chris Edwards' side will carry goal threat.

And they may fancy catching Carew cold, given the visitors have not played since December 9th.

But if the visitors are at full strength, and Sam Christopher in particular is firing, my money would be on The Rooks.

Score prediction: West Dragons 2-4 Carew
