West Wales Cup Round 3:

Carew 3-2 Loughor Rovers

As you were.

These two go again after being postponed on Saturday, the only difference being they now know their potential last 16 opponents. An away trip to Ynystawe Athletic or Malsters Sports awaits.

Both come into this on the back of big wins a fortnight ago, Carew beating Narberth 7-1 with Scott Ferney, Jordan Richards, and Lloyd Hughes all impressing.

Loughor are six games unbeaten in the Carmarthenshire Premier, having not lost in the league since September 11th - and Trallwm 5-1 last time out with Mike Grimwade grabbing a hat trick.

I said last week this would be a stern test for The Rooks but favoured them with home advantage so will stick to that.

And with better weather forecast this weekend, we should be good to go.

Merlins Bridge 2-3 Monkton Swifts

It's a home tie with Treboeth or Llandarcy for the winner of this one.

The Racecourse does not tend to respond well to a lashing of rain, so despite the raised eyebrows (or tweets) it wasn't really a shock to see this one off last weekend.

They were set to be without the (still) suspended Adam Hawkins, Joe Leahy, Nathan Greene, so whether either of the latter two return to boost them Saturday may prove important.

Regardless, Monkton have already proven they can rise to the occasion in one off ties this season, knocking Goodwick out the Senior Cup, and will be undoubtedly fired up for this.

They are a side who works hard for each other and Ryan Griffiths and Dylan Davies are two of many impressing in recent weeks.

Last week I suspected they would sneak it. If Leahy or Greene (or both) are back available it could swing things, but I'm not turning back now.

Neyland 2-4 Bryncoch

Perhaps some extra incentive for both sides in this re-arranged tie, with a home game against Swansea Division two team Brynawel for the winners.

Neyland battled well in their last game against Goodwick before late goals cost them dear, but they still seem to be threadbare, with manager Andrew Kemp having to play himself in defence and outfield player Oli Marshall filling in as keeper.

Bryncoch are unbeaten in the Neath Premier League and lie top with 25 points from 27, although were made to work hard by Swansea lower league side Cwmfelin Press before winning 3-2 in the last round.

I said last week The Nomads will need to be at full strength to progress, and with nothing to lose they put everything into this. But on paper if nothing else, I fancy Bryncoch.

Manderwood Pembrokeshire League Division One (2pm):

Goodwick United 6-0 Milford United

I can only really see this going one way.

Goodwick did a professional job at Sandfields on Saturday and scoring three goals from set piece was no fluke. Centre backs Scott Delaney and Wayne O'Sullivan give them real aerial threat and the thrown ins of Steffan Hayes pretty much equal corners now.

Throw in their attacking quality up front and Milford have a lot to deal with here.

And they've now lost captain Scott Griffiths to suspension after his red card in St Clears, and while young keeper Jack Nicholas has pulled off saves week after week, he'll need to be at his best again at Phoenix Park.

The Robins are yet to win a point and after this game face Merlins Bridge. I suspect Adrian Hutchings will want the next two weekends out the way - and then have his side targeting some must win games post Christmas.

Hakin United 4-1 Clarbeston Road

Hakin were given some problems for 45 minutes by Morriston Town last week, but it's now five league and cup wins in a row (one came against a now folded Lamphey).

Significantly, they have conceded just four times in that period and while the return of Daniel Armstrong as helped defensively, the shot stopping of James Manson has also been crucial to them in recent weeks. Up front Nicky Woodrow now appears fully fit and back to his prolific best, and Clarbie have a tough task here.

They have been missing some key players in recent weeks although new signing Ben John has added some squad depth, and it was his two goals at Milford United that gave them a 4-2 win last time out.

Matthew Ellis' side have already lost 5-2 at the same venue in the Senior Cup, and while I think they'll get on the scoresheet, I can see a similar outcome here.

Narberth 3-2 Herbrandston

Herbie remain on zero points (having had their only one deducted), but the West Wales Cup has given the club a boost. That win over Waunarlwydd last week, courtesy of Scott Reid's hat trick, took them into the last 16 for the first time.

But Sean Thomas knows his side now have to pick up results in the league, starting with a trip to unpredictable Narberth.

The Bluebirds have shipped 10 goals in their last two games since beating Clarbie 7-2, but do threaten going forward with Jordan Williams and Tony Evans both in good form.

I can see both sides scoring, but Narberth edging it. Although I also thought Herbie would lose 3-2 last week.....

St Clears 2-2 Saundersfoot Sports

The two promoted sides meet having both made good starts to life back in Division One.

The Saints struck four second half goals to see off Milford last week, and striker Steve Thomas continued his scoring form with two goals while namesake Jamie made a promising senior debut.

That win took them 7th, two places and three points above Saundersfoot, who were beaten 3-0 at Hakin last time out despite a standout display from keeper Sam Franklin.

These sides played out a 2-2 draw earlier in the season, a game St Clears actually led 2-0, and I can't separate them again this time around.
