DENBIGH Town go into Saturday's Word Cup final as probably the longest-priced underdogs the competition has ever seen.

Bookies price the Huws Gray Alliance outfit at 25/1 to cause an upset against full-timers The New Saints, who are 1/12 to retain the trophy they have won for the past two years and six times in all.

But wild card entrants Denbigh are not fazed at the prospect of meeting TNS, having already defeated Welsh Premier opposition Rhyl, Airbus UK Broughton and Gap Connah's Quay on their way to the showpiece at Llandudno's Maesdu Park.

"We're excited to be playing in such a prestigious cup final.  We know that we will have our work cut out and that we are the underdogs but I am looking forward to causing an upset," says Denbigh striker Mark Roberts.

The match will be shown live on S4C with a 5.15pm kick-off and presenter Dylan Ebenezer says a Denbigh win would rank among the biggest shocks in Welsh football history.

"It would be one of the biggest shocks in Welsh football, wouldn't it?" he said.

"It would be a bigger shock than Wrexham beating Arsenal, Wimbledon beating Liverpool or even Japan beating South Africa in the rugby!

"But you never know with football, the shock could always happen and that's why we love it."

TNS are taking no chances and trained at on the 3G pitch at Maesdu Park this week.

Meanwhile Denbigh manager Gareth Thomas says: "At the end of the day, outside of our changing room there’s not one person going to believe we have got a chance of winning that game.

"But we have got to believe we can get something from it."
