Football: Bluebirds aiming to fly into league cup final; LEAGUE CUP.

Byline: JOHN BRIDGWATER

CAERSWS hope to have the psychological edge when they journey to lowly Carmarthen Town in the Loosemores Challenge Cup semi-final second leg today.

Despite being held to a goalless first leg on home soil, the Bluebirds should be confident of progressing after chalking up two comfortable Welsh Premier wins over the west Wales men this season.

But boss Mickey Evans has warned his side not to take anything for granted.

``We had enough chances in the first leg to have one foot in the final but there's no point looking back,''he said.

``We've made the task more difficult than it should have been.We've now got to do it all again but it's still a terrific opportunity for us.''

But Carmarthen,despite struggling this season, will have similar ideas as they bid to end a poor campaign on a high note.

``We can't take anything for granted and must go there with the right attitude,''added Evans. ``They've got some good players and it's a chance for them to salvage something from a disappointing season.''

Bluebirds defender Hugh Clarke is suspended, soAnthony Griffiths again deputises while Mark Howells is expected to return to the squad.

Caersws make the trip in good heart,having stretched their unbeaten league run to six games with last weekend's 0-0 draw at Afan Lido.
