LADY LUCK was shining as Connah's Quay Nomads, Cefn Druids and Flint Town United were handed favourable Welsh Cup round four ties.

Nomads, winners of the competition in 2018 and beaten finalists last time around, have been handed a home clash with lower league Afan Lido.

Fellow top-flight outfit Druids, who overcame Guilsfield on Saturday, have another home tie after being paired with Pontardawe.

Huw Griffiths' Ancients will be confident of reaching the last eight, but Buckley Town boss Dan Moore believes Pontardawe will be relishing their fourth round tie.

The Flintshire side suffered a 3-1 defeat to lower league Pontardawe on Saturday.

“Pontardawe have some strong players and were well organised, I’m sure they’ll be looking forward with positivity to the next round, they’ll pose a threat to whoever it is they draw - congratulations to them!” said Moore, who felt his side under-performed on the day.

“Too many of our players weren’t at their best and we were a bit flat at times, I don’t know why, there are no excuses for it as we travelled well and were as organised as ever off the pitch,” he added.”

Niall McGuinness' Flint also have home advantage as they welcome fellow Cymru North outfit Colwyn Bay to the Essity Stadium.

The Silkmen, who knocked out top-tier Bala in the shock of the round, have already beaten Colwyn Bay this season and entertain the Seagulls in league action this weekend.

Holders The New Saints' reward for cruising past Mold Alex in round three is a home encounter with Aberystwyth Town, while Newtown, who beat fellow top-flight side Barry Town United, face a tricky tie with Rhyl.

Lee Trundle's Ammanford will be looking to cause another upset as they prepare to entertain Caernarfon having eased past Carmarthen and Cymru North title hopefuls Prestatyn visit Swansea University.

Cardiff Met head to either Penybont or Porthmadog, who will meet again on Saturday.

All ties are to be played on weekend of January 24-26.

There is one Cymru North encounter on Tuesday night as Bangor City host seventh placed Conwy Borough.
