TNS boss Scott Ruscoe admitted he was delighted with the way his side bounced back from defeat to Connah’s Quay Nomads with a thumping win over Carmarthen Town on Saturday.

The result ensured the Saints make the trip to newly promoted Caernarfon Town tonight (Friday) with full confidence.

“After the disappointing result against Nomads, though I wouldn’t say performance, it was great way to bounce back, to get the goals and get the clean sheet too.

“We’re not going to change the team for the sake of it.

“If you believe in the players who have got the shirt and they’re doing well, then I don’t see any reason to change things.

“We might have cup ties but if the lads who are playing well in the shirt continue to do it, then great.

“I was really impressed with how ruthless we were on Saturday.

“Carmarthen had some good experienced players but I didn’t want us to be flat and expect an easy game because of how they did last season.

“We didn’t score until 22 minutes but I knewas soon as we got that first goal, we would go on and get more.

Ruscoe insisted his side will be switched on against newly-promoted Caernarfon Town on Friday night as they look for back-to-back wins before Irn-Bru Cup action the following week.

“The message of this before Caernarfon is not to ruin the hard work,” warned Ruscoe. “We’ve had some good cup games against them in the past and we expect a big crowd.

“We’ll be up for it and it’s another one where we know it’s not going to be an easy game and we can’t just turn up for it.

“We’ll be professional, dig in and put them under pressure and hopefully our fitness and class will tell on the night.”

Ruscoe has been putting his troops through their paces with a midweek behind closed doors friendly against Liverpool under 23s.

“Such games are better than training,” said Ruscoe

“We have cup games, such as the Irn-Bru Cup when we play Queens Park of the Scottish second division team in a week’s time so we might freshen up.”
