Newtown aim to go one better

Newtown boss Chris Hughes is calling on his Robins to go one better in the JD Welsh Cup as they travel to Flint Town United on Saturday.

The Robins lost out in the semi-final of the Nathaniel MG Cup to Cardiff Met, and after the disappointment of narrowly missing out on the first cup final of the season, Hughes has challenged his side to go again on Saturday.

He said: "No one at the club sees the Welsh Cup is a distraction, it is a great competition that we always want to do well in. We had a huge chance in the League Cup, and lost late on in the semi-final to Cardiff Met, so in this one we would love to go one better.

"I've had a taste of the final and winning it before, and as a club we have got to the final in recent years, but we know just how tough it will be on Saturday.

"They're a decent side, but as the Welsh Premier League team the onus is on us, and if we perform we know we can get a result."

Caersws are in another bottom of the table clash at Penrhyncoch in the Huws Gray Alliance while Llanfair and Kerry go head-to-head in the Central Wales Cup at the Mount Field.
