THE New Saints host Bala Town on Saturday with the JD Cymru Premier title still hanging in the balance.

Only victory at Park Hall will do for Anthony Limbrick’s side with the Oswestrians left to hope leaders and defending champions Connah’s Quay Nomads drop points in their season finale at Penybont.

Despite not a single fan stepping foot inside a JD Cymru Premier ground this season the 2021 campaign will go down as one of the most competitive title races in years.

Manager Anthony Limbrick backed his side to maintain their strong end of season form against the Lakesiders who have sealed third and will also look to end the campaign strongly having set a season record points tally.

Limbrick said: “Our target was to win the last two games and keep two clean sheets to go into the final game and we have done that.

“It was a professional performance against Barry, we were a bit slow in the first-half but we needed to be patient and wear them down which we did early in the second-half which settled us down.

“We deserved the win and credit to the players.”

The Saints entertain Bala with confidence and Limbrick insisted his side would only concentrate on themselves and not the events at Bridgend.

“We can only look to ourselves and concentrate on our jobs,” said Limbrick.

The Saints have enjoyed a week of training – a rarity in a campaign which has seen midweek fixtures for most of the year,

“It is good to have a week and preparing rather than playing midweek and recovery,” said Limbrick. “We will be working with the players and try and make the most of the time on the training ground.”

Meanwhile Limbrick said the changing room was upbeat and targeting the title, saying “Our changing room has a lot of winners and the players are hungry for success.”
