Cardiff Draconians v Ton Pentre | JD Welsh Cup Round 1 | Saturday, 7 October 2017 | KO 2:30pm | Lydstep Park, CF14 2ST

Ton Pentre take a break from league action this week as they prepare for a tricky Round One tie in the JD Welsh Cup.

The Bulldogs go to South Wales Alliance League Premier Division outfit Cardiff Draconians, who have reached the first round proper of the competition for the very first time.

Cardiff Dracs will fancy causing an upset with their home advantage, particularly since the Bulldogs come into the match without a win in the league.

The Football Association of Wales must also think that the Dracs are the likeliest to cause a cup shock as this match has been featured on their website as a lead story.

Ton Pentre are without the services of winger Nathan Facey, who sits out the second of a three match suspension. Meanwhile, Gavin Morris and Scott Hayward are expected to back in contention for selection.

Cardiff Dracs have already dumped Welsh League opposition out of the JD Welsh Cup as Tredegar Town lost to them in Qualifying Round Two.

They are managed by former Liverpool player Leyton Maxwell, who also has vast experience of the Welsh Premier League and Welsh Football League.

Steve Williams and Adam Lewis will once again be in charge of the Bulldogs for the match as Ton Pentre’s search for a new manager continues.

Cardiff Dracs play at Lydstep Park on Llanidloes Road, near the Gabalfa interchange on the A470. For those making the journey to the match, the postcode is CF14 2ST.
