Haverfordwest County AFC
JD Welsh Cup
|28.01.17 | 2:30pm|
This Saturday will see The Nomads make the long trip south to face Haverfordwest County in the fourth round of the JD Welsh Cup.
The 150 mile trip marks The Nomads' first game since the 0-0 draw with Bala on Saturday 14th, and also marks the Club's second game in this season's competition following the dramatic 3-2 victory over Goytre United in thie third round - a game which saw The Nomads trailing 2-1 until the 91st minute when Les Davies hit his second and third goals of the game to turn the result around in dramatic fashion.
Haverfordwest meanwhile progressed to the fourth round following a 1-0 victory over fellow Nathaniel Cars League opposition, Afan Lido having beaten Newport YMCA and Undy Athletic in the previous two rounds of the competition.
The Bluebirds currently sit eighth in the Nathaniel Cars Welsh League on 23 points from 15 games, two points ahead of our opponents from the previous round, Goytre United.
The game marks the first time that The Nomads have visited the Conygar Bridge Meadow since a George Horan double helped the side to all three points in the Welsh Premier League in November 2015 in Andy Morrison's second game in charge of the Club.
Ahead of the game Andy Morrison said "After last weekend's rest, we head to Haverfordwest in the Cup this Saturday. Our games against Haverfordwest last season were very competitive and we are under no illusions as to how tough this will be. We have detailed information on their last three games and our Player/Coach Danny Harrison made the journey south for their last home game and was very impressed with their 3-0 victory.
We can only control what is in our hands and make sure that our preparation is correct and as such we will be travelling down the night before the game.
Our training has been very bright and sharp - competition for places has increased and the whole squad are desperate to be in the starting lineup.
Whatever team we put out, I have no doubt that we will compete and as I have said many times, it will take a very good team to beat us."
The game kicks off at the Conygar Bridge Meadow in Haverfordwest at 2:30pm on Saturday afternoon.
