Builth Wells are gearing up for their biggest game of the season when they travel to Denbigh Town in an Ardal Northern League Cup semi-final on Saturday.
The Bulls go into the tie on a decent run of form having chalked up three successive wins but admit Denbigh, who are in the FAW Amateur Trophy Final and also in contention for the Ardal North West League title will be a different ball game.
Builth joint manager, Jason Samuel said: “They are obviously big favourites but it is a one-off game and if we can play to our potential, we are well capable of causing an upset.”
Rudi Griffiths, Aeron Powell and Christian Jones will hopefully return for Builth but Rhys Thomas is a doubt and Gavin Rowlands is on holiday.
Rhayader Town’s struggle in the Ardal League North East continues away at Cefn Albion with manager, Dylan McPhee admitting: “We have not been good enough over the season particularly in the final third of the pitch. But it is what it is and we have just got to battle away and try and enjoy our football.”
He welcomes back Callum Humphreys and Michael Walsh while Gareth Hughes will hopefully be available again.
Meanwhile Llandrindod Wells welcome Corwen to The Broadway in the first part of an Easter double header for the Spa men who have to contest the Aspidistra Radnorshire Cup Final 24 hours later.
Key men, Shaun Nicholls and Jack Evans should return for Llandrindod on Saturday having missed last weekend.
Brecon Corries have no fixture in the Ardal League South East. Corries, whose game against Treowen Stars last week was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, are next in action a week on Saturday when Goytre visit The Rich Field.
There is a huge game in the MMP Central Wales League (South) at the weekend with title rivals, Hay St Marys and Penparcau meeting at Forest Road. An earlier meeting between the teams this season resulted in a 2-2 draw and whoever loses on Saturday is virtually out of the title race. Radnor Valley look to be in pole position in the chase for honours but both Hay and Penparcau can overhaul The Goats if results go their way.
Hay manager, Gareth Jenkins is without topscorer, Matt Tong and Callum Maddy through suspension.
Radnor Valley, who have no fixture on Saturday because of the Radnorshire Cup Final, will undoubtedly have one eye on the result from Forest Road.
Elsewhere in the MMP Central Wales League (South), Knighton Town are away at Machynlleth looking to avenge a recent 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Magnolians.
Machynlleth have announced that their side will be led by a number of senior players until the end of the season following the resignation of Richie Evans as manager.
Knighton are then in action again on Easter Monday entertaining arch rivals, Presteigne St Andrews while Penybont travel to Tregaron.
There is just one game in the Watson Financial Mid Wales League (South) with Felindre playing their penultimate match of the term away at Presteigne St Andrews Reserves.
Newcastle are favourites to land the title for the first time in more than a decade although St Harmon and Hay St Marys Reserves cannot be ruled out. St Harmon still have eight to play in the league including three games against the Shropshire side.
