Airbus chief targets memorable hat-trick

AIRBUS UK Broughton boss Craig Harrison is targeting a hat-trick to remember when The New Saints visit The Airfield on Sunday (2.00pm).

The Wingmakers will be bidding to record their third straight home victory over the Saints, who lost 1-0 to a Matthew Cook goal last season and 2-0 as their title hopes were extinguished in 2007/8.
Airbus also gave the Saints a good run for their money in a 2-1 defeat at Park Hall in August, so there is confidence in the home camp.
"It’s going to be a good game and we have nothing to fear having beaten them twice in the last two seasons," said Harrison, who will be without suspended captain and centre-back Mark Allen.
"But we accept TNS will be favourites as they’re a full-time team who have been able to train more regularly than us in the bad weather because they have Astroturf."
In fact, the snow bound state of the Park Hall pitch means the squad have been restricted mainly to gym work for the past fortnight.
But, management duo Andy Cale and Mike Davies will have Phil Baker available again after suspension and he is likely to reclaim his place in a defence that has not conceded from open play since late October.
