Ton Pentre make a midweek visit to Taffs Well on Tuesday (23 August) in Round Two of the Nathaniel Car Sales League Cup.
Normally at this opening stage of the season the Welsh League fixtures midweek Division One matches but has taken the decision to play the first two rounds of its cup competition this year. The cup often suffers setbacks during the winter months leading to fixture congestion and it is hoped this will alleviate the potential issues.
The Bulldogs were without a fixture last week having received a bye in Round One and will play the Wellmen after they easily dispatched of Caerau 4-0 at Rhiw Dda’r.
Taffs Well strengthened in the summer with the acquisitions of Martin Rose and Cortez Belle, who were with Port Talbot Town in the Dafabet Welsh Premier League last season. They now boast an impressive squad and will be amongst the title favourites this season. The club has enjoyed much success in this competition in recent years and will certainly expect another good run this season to emulate their past triumphs of lifting the trophy.
For this game the Bulldogs will be without Liam Reed, Liam Hutchinson, Thomas Davies (serving the last game of a three match suspension) and Adam Lewis, who was sent off against Monmouth Town on Saturday and will miss three games.
This League Cup match between Taffs Well and Ton Pentre kicks off at 7.30pm.
