Last seasons this fixture was always build as a title decider, however this year it has been far from it.
Airbus have surprised many with too many lacklustre results leaving them down in fourth and battling to re-gain that second spot they have held for two years.
Aber and Bala have put up stern tests for Andy Preece’s men this time, and the three horse race looks to be going right to the wire.
The Wingmakers brought themselves back into it last weekend as they thumped Port Talbot 5-0 and TNS did them a favour by pasting Aberystwyth at Park Avenue.
However, attention for them turns to this week, and they will be hoping for another close battle at Park Hall like it has been for many years.
We are closing in on a fourth consecutive title, and a win today will mean they are just six points from that title, and we are seven games from the finish line.
It was another impressive feat for Harrison’s men, however Airbus are no mugs.
The return of Wayne Riley, who was ever impressive in his first Airbus spell, could spark a revival and he will be a big player to watch out for this afternoon.
In other news I would like to offer my best wishes to the family and friends of Michael ‘Spider’ Hughes who passed away last week following a short illness.
Spider was the life and soul of this club and he will be sorely missed by everyone.
I felt privileged to be asked to present a radio show in his memory last week, and it was fascinating to get the insight into how key Spider was to Llansantffraid from Keith Weaver and Mike Harris.
