WELSH ALLIANCE Division One
Llandyrnog United vs Bodedern Athletic
The hosts will be hoping to bounce back from their recent run of poor form, which has seen them take just four points from a possible 15 in their previous five matches.
The visitors on the other hand, are coming into the match having won their previous two matches, scoring 15 goals, and only conceding one in the process.
Llanrug United vs Prestatyn Sports
The visitors will be hoping for a repeat of their performance from September, when they beat Llanrug United 2-1.
Llanrug United however, sit three points ahead of Prestatyn Sports heading into this match, and will be looking to recover from a 1-1 draw to Penrhyndeudraeth in their last match.
Barmouth Dyffryn vs Llannerchymedd
The hosts will be looking to bounce back after suffering a 5-0 loss in their match against Llanrwst United last week. The visitors meanwhile are in poor form themselves, having taken just one point out of their previous five matches, and will be hoping a good result in the Cup will provide them with a much-needed confidence boost.
Kinmel Bay vs Glan Conwy
Glan Conwy come into the match on the back of a 2-2 draw with Llannerchymedd in the league last week, whilst the hosts come into the match having defeated Pentraeth 7-4 in their previous match. A major positive for Kinmel Bay in recent weeks has been the form of Kieran Ellis and Jordan Worthington, who’ve both been prolific in front of goal, and the visitors will have to keep an eye on the pair if they are to progress into the next round.
Llandudno Albion vs Nantlle Vale
Llandudno Albion currently sit just two points behind Nantlle Vale in the league, and will be hoping a win in the Mawddach Cup can propel them forward in upcoming weeks. However, the visitors will be full of confidence, and are still unbeaten so far this season.
Llandudno Junction vs Llanrwst United
Division One’s bottom side, Llandudno Junction come into the match having picked up a valuable point in the league last week as they look to battle relegation. Llanrwst United enjoyed an emphatic 5-0 victory against Barmouth Dyffryn last week, and will be looking to build on that victory with a good performance in the Cup.
Llangefni Town vs Llanberis
The hosts currently sit top of Division One, with 22 points from eight matches, and are currently still unbeaten this season. Llangefni face a Llanberis side that have got 10 points from 10 matches, but will be hoping a Cup victory can inspire an upturn in fortunes this season.
Mochdre Sports vs Meliden
The hosts come into the match on the back of a 3-1 victory against Amlwch Town last week, whereas the visitors suffered a 3-0 loss to Gaerwen.
Mynydd Llandegai vs Amlwch Town
The visitors have lost every match they’ve played this season, and are currently bottom of Division Two. Mynydd Llandegai meanwhile, sit in 10th position in Division One, and have three wins, three draws and three losses this season.
Penmaenmawr Phoenix vs Greenfield
Penmaenmawr Phoenix come into the match on the back of five matches unbeaten in Division Two, with two wins and three draws in those matches. Greenfield meanwhile are eighth in Division One, but will be looking for a Cup run to excite their supporters.
Penrhyndeudraeth vs Holyhead Town
The hosts come into this match in a patchy run of form, with just one win in their last five matches, along with two draws and two losses. Holyhead meanwhile, are in a similar run of form, with three losses, one draw and one win in their previous five matches.
Pentraeth vs Felinheli
The hosts currently sit in 10th place in Division Two after 11 matches, and sit eight points behind Felinheli, who have played two games fewer, but are still unbeaten and currently sit in 4th in the league.
St Asaph City vs Gaerwen
The hosts find themselves with 11 points in 10 games, and will be hopeful of a successful result in the Cup in order to revitalise their prospects this season. Gaerwen sit 12th in Division Two, and have only two wins this season.
