AIRBUS will be without a Welsh Premier League game this weekend and director of football Andy Preece says the situation is unfair.

Flintshire neighbours Gap Connah's Quay have appealed against a one-point deduction for allegedly fielding an ineligible player which means the Nomads and Carmarthen Town, who would replace them in the top six, cannot play until the situation is resolved.

"By not playing this weekend we could lose the advantage we've made by no fault of our own," Preece says.

"Bangor or Prestatyn could close up on us and TNS might go three points clear of us - and there's nothing we can do about it.

"I don't think it's fair."

The Wingmakers' first fixture in the Championship Conference will be away to Prestatyn Town on Friday 15 February (7.30pm).

Live TV cameras then visit the Hollingsworth Group Stadium on Saturday 23 February for the clash with reigning champions The New Saints, which has a 5.15pm kick-off.

No further fixtures have been announced pending the Nomads' appeal outcome.
