FOR the second year running, a team from Welsh football's second tier will contest the final of the League Cup.

Welsh Leaguers Barry Town United overcame Welsh Premier Carmarthen Town 1-0 at Jenner Park to set-up a meeting with either Gap Connah's Quay or holders The New Saints.

But the Old Gold were left to rue a first half of missed chances, just failing to capitalise on a poor goal kick by keeper Mike Lewis which saw Liam Thomas head narrowly over the bar.

Kieran Lewis unleashed a 35-yard volley that whistled just over the target before Thomas sent a diving header against the outside of an upright from a Lewis corner.

The hosts came out with more intent after the break and had Carmarthen on the back foot with Jordan Cotterill firing just wide after a good run. But the striker found the target when he scored the game's only goal with a superb 30-yard free kick just past the hour mark and, with both defences on top, there were no further chances of note.

Last season, Denbigh Town of the Huws Gray Alliance reached the final, where they were beaten 2-0 by TNS.
