West Wales Cup Round 3 (1.30pm):

Bryncoch 4-1 Neyland

Third time lucky.

And the tie has just got a little harder for The Nomads. The venue is now reversed after two postponements in Neyland, 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. They will need players back for this trip.

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.

It would be a hell of a win on the road if Neyland pulled this off. But I would be surprised.

Manderwood Pembrokeshire Football League Division 1 (2pm):

Carew 3-2 Pennar Robins

I thought Carew would be tested by Loughor Rovers in the West Wales Cup, but they breezed home with Lloyd Hughes scoring four goals.

This Saturday though, they will be made to scrap harder.

There is a long way to go but The Rooks remain in the title race and we have reached the stage where dropped points matter, and coaches Rob Scourfield and Jeremy Griffiths will be desperate to head into the Christmas break on the back of a win.

Pennar didn't play last week but are improving fast. They ended their long wait for a league win by beating Narberth two weeks ago, which followed a 2-2 draw with Merlins Bridge.

Strikers Ben Adams and Sam Southcott will cause Carew problems and at the other end keeper Stuart James is in good form.

I can see this being tight, with The Rooks sneaking it.

Hakin United 5-2 Narberth

It was all going a bit quiet at Hakin - wins of 3-1, 3-0, 3-0 - and then last week was back to the side we've come to know. A 10 goal thriller and a 7-3 win over Clarbie Road.

In the first game after Christmas they go to Monkton, and Kristan Bennett won't want any points dropped beforehand. The Vikings will be missing young Camron Thomas though, and important versatile player for them this season, after he tore ligaments last week.

Narberth have climbed the table after a bad start, and goals from  Jordan Williams, Ben John, Lewis Bansall, Tony Evans, and Chris Brown gave them a 5-2 win over Herbie.

But their record against the top sides in the league this season is not good, and it will be tough for them to take anything from The Obs.

Herbrandston 2-5 Monkton Swifts

Monkton ended up well beaten at Bridge last week, but Joe Lewis and co simply have to put it behind them now. They remain right up there in Division One and can't let a cup defeat derail that.

They played good football at times at The Racecourse but were missing several key players and it told, but if they are close to a full compliment tomorrow I'd back them to win here.

Herbie have has some morale boosting cup results but were well beaten at Narberth last week. The pace of Andre Algieri and goals of Scott Reid have provided their main threat in recent weeks but while Leighton Harding has filled in well, they are still missing a regular keeper.

Sean Thomas will see a result Saturday as a bonus, but there are plenty of post-Christmas games, including Milford home and away, where they have to pick up points.

Milford United 0-4 Merlins Bridge

It has been hard enough for Milford United this season, so going to leaders Goodwick with a depleted squad would have been the last thing Adrian Hutchings needed.

And yet they battled hard for 45 minutes before the Phoenix Boys came good after the break.

Keeper Jack Nicholas again had plenty to do and Lewys Tee was gave everything in the lone striker role, but it is hard to see how they are going to cause Bridge real problems.

The wind made their West Wales Cup tie a scrappy one with Monkton, but they came through it thanks to the finishing quality of Joe Leahy and Nathan Greene.

Chris Ormond also made a welcome return to the back four and they will start clear favourites here.

As for The Robins, it will be the games post Christmas, including those two potentially pivotal clashes with Herbrandston, that will define their season.

Saundersfoot Sports 0-3 Goodwick United

As mentioned, Goodwick were made to toil for 45 minutes against Milford last week but then the goals flowed in second half.

Lee Hudgell's quality strike stood out in the eventual 5-0 win, and Wayne O'Sullivan's side remain unbeaten after 12 league games.

Saundersfoot have 11 points and are in little danger of going down, but it's now three league defeats and four and they will be without a key player in Nick Cope, sent off in their 2-1 defeat at St Clears last Saturday.

The Sports started slowly in that game and it cost them, and they can't afford to give the visitors any kind of head start here.

St Clears 2-2 Clarbeston Road

Just one place and two points separate these two, and I expect a tight game.

The Saints had two cracking goals from Jon Seeley and Jonathan Thomas in that win over Saundersfoot, but it was young debutant Jamie Thomas who really impressed with a man of the match display.

Clarbie underlined their threat in Hakin by scoring three times, again Jason Griffiths and Sean Seymour-Davies sharing their goals, but also showed their defensive vulnerability by conceding seven.

These two teams play Goodwick and Bridge respectively on December 29th, so will know the importance of three points here. But I can see it being honours even.
