CAERNARFON Town will be looking to avoid an upset as they go on the road in the JD Welsh Cup third round.

The Canaries’ begin their quest for the cup with a long trip to Goytre United, who have been inconsistent so far this term and currently sit in 12th position in the JD Cymru South standings.

Porthmadog were rewarded for an impressive second-round triumph over Gresford Athletic with an away trip to Penybont, who are a newly promoted JD Cymru Premier side who have found things tough going at the top of the Welsh pyramid this term.

Mold Alexandra have been handed a plumb tie at The New Saints, with Flint Town United and Ruthin Town looking to take a top-flight scalp when they take on Bala Town and Aberystwyth Town.

Colwyn Bay will look to pick up a notable scalp in the form of Airbus UK, and Abertillery Bluebirds welcome Europa League heroes Connah’s Quay Nomads in another eye-catching fixture.
