THERE were no further upsets as the second round of the Nathaniel MG Cup reached its conclusion on Wednesday night.

Goytre of the Welsh League and Huws Gray Alliance duo Denbigh and Guilsfield were unable to repeat the heroics of Barry Town United and Haverfordwest the previous evening.

Guilsfield were well-beaten 3-0 at home by Newtown, with home defender Sam Lichfield turning a Neil Mitchell cross into his own net after 31 minutes. Jason Oswell chipped the keeper for the second just after the break and Luke Boundford sealed the win on the hour.

Last season's finalists Denbigh Town hit back from a goal down to level against Gap Connah's Quay at the Deeside Stadium when ex-Nomad Alan Bull fired home from a free-kick. John Disney had earlier given the hosts the lead but a Michael Wilde brace inside two second-half minutes ensured that the Nomads had a place in the last eight.

Carmarthen Town overcame Goytre 4-2 at Richmond Park with Aaron Garrett putting through his own goal to give the Old Gold a 19th-minute lead. Matthew Thomas extended the home advantage before Sam O'Sullivan pulled a goal back, but further goals in the second half from Dave Vincent and Mark Jones gave the home side a comfortable win, although Goytre did claim another consolation in stoppage time from Josh Brown.

In an all-Welsh Premier affair Cefn Druids were given a baptism of fire as they made their debut on the new 3G pitch at The Rock. Bangor City raced into a 3-0 lead through Henry Jones, Christian Langos and Anthony Miley and their progress was never threatened, despite an Ashley Ruane goal on 76 minutes and another deep into stoppage time from Mike Pritchard.
