AIRBUS will face Flintshire rivals Gap Connah's Quay for a place in the Europa League qualifying rounds this Saturday.

The Nomads beat Carmarthen Town 2-0 on Sunday to book their place in the play-off final after the Wingmakers had emerged 2-1 winners away at Newtown 24 hours earlier.

It's an intriguing clash between Andy Preece and his former assistant at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium, Andy Morrison with a 5.15 pm kick-off (live on S4C).

After Sunday's win, Morrison said his plans are to rest his squad ahead of the game. "It's that time of year when you've got such a small squad, Airbus have got a massive squad. We need to patch our lads up and get a game plan, or make it as impossible for them as we can," he said.

"It would be great and I'll be very very proud to take Connah's Quay to Europe, in my first managerial role - to come from bottom of the league to a play-off final is a staggering achievement."

Morrison will be without midfielder Danny Harrison, who was sent-off in the win over the Old Gold.

Airbus have enjoyed mixed fortunes against Nomads this season, winning 3-2 at home on New Year's Day after a 1-1 Boxing Day draw on Deeside.

The Wingmakers then lost 2-1 at home in Phase 2 after a 1-0 defeat at the Nomads in February.
