The Sgorio cameras will be live at the home of the champions, The New Saints this Saturday as they prepare to face Airbus UK at Park Hall.

We’re halfway through the WPL season and The New Saints start the weekend with an 11 point lead on second placed MBi Llandudno.

TNS look like they will comfortably clinch their 10th league title this season, making it five titles on the bounce.

The current champions are unbeaten this season and have secured a place in the Word Cup final for the second season running where they will play Denbigh Town.

Airbus are the last club to beat TNS in a domestic match and that was back in April (1-0) but since then The New Saints haven’t lost any of their 21 domestic matches (won 15, drawn 6).

The teams have already met once this season and that game finished 1-1 after league top scorer Tony Gray netted a late equaliser for Airbus after Michael Wilde had put the Saints in front.

Which means that TNS have failed to beat Airbus in their last two meetings, a stat that Craig Harrison will want to set straight.

But Airbus have the luxury of having the league top scorer in their ranks and Tony Gray will look to add to his 11 WPL goals this season and inspire Airbus to their first ever win at Park Hall.
