Little chance of any upsets in cup clashes

Wolves v Robin Hood

A good match up between two First Division promotion hopefuls, this game is likely to be won in midfield. Wolves won the league game between the two sides, and should have the edge again on Sunday.

Prediction: Wolves 3-2

Devonshire Cougars v X'Roads

This should be a straight forward win for the defending champions. Coming into the game off the back of a victory over Dandy Town, a win in their last game before the Christmas break will help the side gain momentum heading into the New Year.

Prediction: Cougars 3-0

MR Onions v Southampton Rangers

One of the more intriguing matches of the round, Rangers will need to be wary of the scoring threats Onions possess.

Kevin Ronaldson and Keston Lewis will cause them problems if not carefully watched and Rangers must get on top early if they want to avoid an upset.

Southampton meanwhile have match winners in their camp as well and can blow this game wide open if they hit the ground running.

Prediction: Rangers 3-1

Prospect v Boulevard

Boulevard should come out of this game relatively unscathed and given Prospect's league form it could be a case of how many, rather than if an upset is on the cards.

Prediction: Boulevard 2-0

St David's v Ireland Rangers

A straight forward win for St David's as long as they focus on the task at hand. Given how Ireland Rangers have fared this year, it should be a high scoring affair.

Prediction: St. David's 5-0

Hamilton Parish v St George's

A battle of East End teams, this game is sure to be full of fireworks. Colts though should have the edge, and will be in buoyant mood after their promising first half of the league season.

Prediction: Colts 2-0

PHC V Devonshire Colts

PHC got a favourable draw when they were handed Premier Division strugglers Colts and should progress to the next round with minimal fuss.

Colts have hit a bit of form in recent weeks, but beating PHC may be above the side at the moment.

Prediction: PHC 3-0

North Village v Dandy Town

The match of the round is likely to be decided by sheer determination. Village will be looking to get one over on Town after their loss to their title rivals in the league.

It's likely to be a close affair, but look for Village to advance given their recent form.

Prediction: Village 2-0
