BEDWAS will be hoping that Gwent neighbours Cross Keys can upset the odds when they travel to Bridgend in the Premiership this evening (kick-off 7.30pm).

Morgan Stoddart’s men have already been condemned to the drop but if they stun the Ravens then they will do their rivals from Bridge Field a big favour.

Three of the four clubs relegated to the Championship have already been confirmed - Keys, Bargoed and Neath - with Bridgend currently in the final spot.

Bedwas have one game left, against Swansea at home on Saturday, and as things stand would face Pontypool in a promotion/relegation play-off.

However, the Ravens are just two points behind with three games left.

If Bridgend, who have tricky away games at Aberavon and Pontypridd to come, triumph tonight then they will also leapfrog Llanelli, who have a final game against whipping boys Neath this weekend, into the final safe spot.

Keys are big underdogs for this evening’s game after a challenging season on and off the field.

Stoddart’s side started the campaign strongly but head to the Brewery Field on a run of nine league losses.

However, they are a proud club and took encouragement from a battling display in their derby encounter with Newport last time out.

Keys led 24-12 on the hour only for the Black and Ambers to storm back with five tries for a 43-24 triumph.

When the sides met on the opening weekend of the season it was the hosts that won at Pandy Park.

Tries by Dragons flanker Nic Cudd, back rower Todd James, full-back Leon Brown and wing Wes Cunliffe edged a 32-25 thriller.

Keys entertain RGC 1404 on Saturday before finishing the campaign by welcoming Pontypridd to Pandy Park next Wednesday.

Llanelli - 58 points: Neath (home)
