Football: WELSH CUP Buzzing Bangor eye Sunday best to extend unbeaten run.

BANGOR City, winners of the Welsh Cup five times, plan to be at their Sunday best when they visit Dinas Powys tomorrow.

Peter Davenport's team are buoyant after holding Welsh Premier leaders TNS to a 1-1 draw last weekend, and they go into the tie unbeaten in six league and cup games.

``We are playing well. We gave a good account of ourselves at TNS and it is essential that we continue to build our run, '' said the City manager.

``There will be a lot at stake and we must hope to keep injury free. ''

Meanwhile, Bangor have signed 19-year-old Craig Garside, who has switched from Colwyn Bay and had three seasons at Everton as a trainee.

But the Chester-born defender-midfielder is ineligible for today's cup clash.

Welshpool Town journey into the unknown for their tie atAFC Llwydcoed, who play in the Welsh League First Division.

``I had them watched last weekend and I've been told they are a more than useful team, '' said boss Tomi Morgan. ``It's going to be a tricky tie as they are a good footballing side who are doing well in their league this season. ''

The Mid Glamorgan hosts, based near Merthyr, put up a brave display last season before losing 2-0 to eventual cup winners Rhyl.

Pool are boosted by the return of striker Steve Rogers and midfielder Ricky Evans. New signing Aden Shannon also comes into the squad.
