Who will progress to the last four of the Nathaniel MG Cup?

Wales is in league cup action tonight, with the remaining eight sides in the Nathaniel MG Cup doing battle in the quarter final.

Whilst TNS, who have won the cup for four years in a row, are still the favourites to retain their championship, a number of sides will be looking to cause an upset in this top flight competition..

Llandudno FC v The New Saints 

The Champions travel to the Giant Hospitality Stadium to face off with Iwan Williams’ side, who are above the JD Welsh Premier League relegation zone only by goal difference.

Llandudno face a big test in trying to eliminate TNS, as they look to bounce back from a score draw against Newtown on the weekend.

Williams is likely to urge his side to cause the upset of the round tonight as he plots a dramatic climb up the table for his side.

Bala Town v Connah’s Quay Nomads 

This will be an intriguing tie as Bala and Nomads meet for the first time this season.

Both Europa League qualifiers for the past three years, their league meetings are often a tight and cagey affair with few goals scored.

However, Bala manager Colin Caton will be eager to test the likes of Chris Venables, Henry Jones, and Steven Tames against Andy Morrison’s notoriously tough defence.

Connah’s Quay have been MG Cup semi finalists for three campaigns in the row – will 2018/19 see them reach the final?

Cardiff Met FC v Haverfordwest County 

In this southern clash, last season’s finalist take on a Haverfordwest side who are primed for a title race in the Welsh League Division One.

With possible promotion on the cards, the Bluebirds will be eager to test themselves against Cardiff Met.

Following a frustrating draw against Carmarthen on the weekend, Christian Edwards’ Cardiff will be eyeing a win to build momentum for their trip to Cefn Druids on Friday evening.

Cambrian & Clydach v Newtown AFC 

Cambrian & Clydach have defied the odds to reach this stage of the competition, defeating both Barry Town and Aberystwyth.

With a home crowd behind them, they will be confident going into this one-off game against a high flying Newtown.

Chris Hughes’ mid-Wales outfit have shocked pundits to rise to fourth in the JD Welsh Premier League, mounting a serious bid for a top six place come January’s split.

All ties kick off at 19:45, and the semi final draw, which is open nationally, will be made on Wednesday evening with the ties to be played on November 23rd/24th.
