WITH the race for the JD Cymru Premier title going down to the final day of the season on Saturday, Connah’s Quay and The New Saints supporters and neutral fans can watch the drama unfold as Sgorio broadcast two live matches simultaneously.

In a first for S4C, two live matches will be shown at the same time, with Pen-y-bont v Connah’s Quay being televised on S4C from 11.45am (English commentary available), while The New Saints v Bala Town will be broadcast online on S4C Clic and Sgorio’s Facebook and YouTube pages. Both matches will kick off at 12.00pm.

Reigning champions Nomads currently top the table with 76 points, but second-placed TNS, who have 74 points, boast a vastly superior goal difference, with an advantage of 17 goals.

Pen-y-bont have proven stubborn opponents to the Nomads this season. In their three previous encounters this season, they have both beaten each other at the Deeside Stadium, while sharing a goalless draw at Bryntirion Park.

A win on Saturday would see Connah’s Quay clinch back-to-back championships. However, should they fail to win, and TNS secure three points at home to Bala Town, the title will return to Park Hall.

It is the first time since the 2011/12 season that the title will be decided on the final day of the season.

Dylan Ebenezer said: “This year’s title race has been gripping and especially over the last few weeks, as Connah’s Quay and The New Saints have both stumbled.

“Andy Morrison’s side have the advantage, but they have to go for the win on Saturday. Pen-y-bont have already proven that they aren’t afraid of the champions and the Saints will hope to see their rivals trip up one last time.

“We haven’t seen a title race end like this in almost a decade and it’s fantastic that Sgorio are breaking new ground by showing both matches at the same time. Make sure you join us in front of the television and with your device.”
