TNS travel to Cardiff Metropolitan on Saturday with the Oswestry club refusing to take the title for granted.

The Saints are once again set to be crowned runaway champions and boast a 12 point gap at the top ahead of the trip to Cyncoed.

Manager Scott Ruscoe said: “We’re taking nothing for granted. We haven’t won the league yet and teams want to take our crown. We’re still looking to strengthen but we’re doing OK.”

Despite the massive gap the TNS chief insisted the standards of the league had improved this season.

“Things are changing and the standards are improving all the time,” said Ruscoe who has been involved with the league since 2001.

“We want to be pushed every week. We want to be playing the best opponents possible which will prepare us even better for when we play in the Champions League.”

The Saints have already begun preparing for their annual foray into Europe as Ruscoe leaves no stone unturned in the club’s ongoing bid to reach the group stages.

“Once the league is won we’ll be concentrating on getting then players even fitter. They’re hungry for success.”
