Pembrokeshire Football League fixtures for Saturday, December 7th:

WWFA Intermediate Cup Third Round (1.30pm):

Fishguard Sports 1-3 Penlan Club

Penlan have not won the West Wales Cup since the 2013/14 season, but have regularly featured in the latter stages.

They've been clinical in the opening two rounds, scoring 11 times and not conceding, and this is a real test for Fishguard.

But they've been going well, and the 3-0 win over Saundersfoot on Saturday sent them fourth in the table.

Home advantage is a big factor in the West Wales Cup and Brian Kinsella's men should be up for this. On paper Penlan go in favourites, but I don't think it will be a comfortable 90 minutes for them.

Goodwick United 3-2 Merlins Bridge (after extra time)

The 2018 winners v the 2019 winners. This should be intense, hard fought, and I can see it needing more than 90 minutes.

It's almost impossible to separate them via the form guide. Goodwick are three points ahead of Bridge in the league but have played a game more. Both had byes in the first round of this befoe Goodwick notched a great 3-1 win over Rockspur, while Bridge beat Gors 16-0. The latter followed that up with an 8-0 win at Narberth, but Messrs Leahy, Hawkins and co face a much sterner defence on Saturday.

Two sides in form with strong squads, and it's simply home advantage then leans me towards Goodwick. But truth is, this could go either way and whoever wins it will be strongly fancied to appear at the Liberty again come May.

Hakin United 2-1 Ynystawe Athletic

Hakin's home form in the West Wales Cup last season was pivotal in them reaching the semi finals, and they will want to be all guns blazing for this.

They have not won this trophy since 2003 and have had to watch three other local sides lift it since. It's a balance they'll want to address.

They returned to winning ways Saturday against Neyland and should have Nicky Woodrow back fit, but have to perform against an Ynystawe side second in the Swansea League Division 1. 

I wouldn't read too much into their 10-0 win olver Solva in Round 2 but clearly, they have the players do damage if afforded time and space.

Again, one of the sides capable of challenging for this trophy is heading out.

Hundleton 3-1 Birchgrove Colts

Hundleton are enjoying a good season, albeit one recently disrupted by rain. And this is a big chance for them to reach the last 16 of the West Wales Cup.

Birchgrove are a side hard to judge. They only play in the third tier of the Swansea League but have lost just once so far in their league, and have won twice to get here. They won't be rolling over.

Twice I've tipped Hundleton to lose this season and twice they've on. Here I think they'll win.

Sorry lads, can see what's coming here.

Monkton Swifts 3-2 Giants Grave

Another big tie between two potential challengers.

Giants Grave dug deep in Round 2 to knock out Carew after having a man sent off, and reached the semi finals last season. Monkton have their work cut out.

But The Swifts keep winning and winning. It's ten from ten in league and cup so far and again their goals are coming from a number of sources. They've taken their momentum from the last campaign into this one.

This should be a battle but one I'll think the home side will come through. With Ryan Griffiths to score......

Pengelli United 2-1 Neyland

Interesting one this - with two sides yet to hit form in their own top flight divisions.

The Nomads held hakin for 43 minutes on Saturday but couldn't sustain it as they lost 4-1. Jason Griffiths was on target for them again but like with so many sides, their chances here depend on how strong they travel to Carmarthen.

Pengelli have won four, lost three in their Premier Division and The Nomads have not won away in league or cup so far. So they need to find some kind of spark here.

St Josephs 2-4 Clarbeston Road

Ah, the weekly lottery that is Clarby Road.

They've signed Jac Pepper which means the keeper situation seems sorted (until he gets injured) and are finding consistency. It was a solid win over Carew on Saturday.

St Josephs lie fourth in the Swansea top flight but have actually lost five times in the league. If* at full strength, and if** at their best, Clarby can pull it off here.

*Not guaranteed.

**Definitely not guaranteed.

Division 1 (2pm):

Carew 4-1 St Clears

I had Carew down as title contenders this season but after the Clarby loss I can't see a challenge materialising now. They've only played six league games but even at this stage, nine points is a hell of a lot to make up.

But they need to find some consistency again and are favourites here. They are still scoring goals and Sam Christopher and Jordan Richards were on target again Saturday - and they play a St Clears side low on form and confidence.

The Saints are yet to win and were beaten 5-0 at Goodwick Saturday, and although they won at The Recreation Ground last season, I can't see a repeat result here.

Pennar Robins 2-3 Narberth

Narberth are becoming hard to judge. They start well and look set for a good season, and then lost 8-0 at home to Bridge.

They've already beaten The Robins at home 4-2 although Chris Lloyd will note that despite only having a point so far, a win here will lift his side out the bottom two. Psychologically that would boost them.

On that basis I expect a battle at Bush Camp, but Narberth's firepower leans me their way.
