A VICTORY in Monday's Welsh Cup final would have handed Airbus an automatic Europa League spot.

Instead, the 2-0 defeat at the hands of TNS means that the Wingmakers' only remaining route is to win two play-off matches if they are to qualify for Europe for a fourth successive season.

First-up is a semi-final away at Newtown's Latham Park on Saturday, with a 5.15pm kick-off and live on S4C.

A win would set-up a final meeting a week on Saturday which would either be at home to Carmarthen Town, or away to Gap Connah's Quay in a Flintshire derby at the Deeside Stadium.
