TNS bid for revenge when Connahs Quay Nomads visit Park Hall tonight (Friday).

The Saints domestic treble dreams were ended by a JD Welsh Cup defeat to the Deesiders last month.

TNS go into the game with confidence high following an emphatic win at Bala Town last week which completed the Saints monopoly over the Lakesiders.

TNS have won four games against Bala Town this season, each by a margin of three goals, to underline their superiority against Colin Caton’s side.

Manager Scott Ruscoe said: “Bala are one of those teams that we feel are never going to trouble us. We have beaten them every time we have met this season.

“We did so with with a different formation on Friday. We had round pegs in square holes for a game where we thought we could try it and it really worked.

“We could have scored six or seven. It was a real pleasure to watch.”

Ruscoe hoped Greg Draper and Dean Ebbe would blossom into a striking partnership to spearhead the Saints foray into Europe this summer.

However Ruscoe also expected Ryan Brobbel and Kevin Kauber to play key roles.

The Saints chief heaped praise on the inform Brobbel whose displays this season have underlined his emergence as a key player at Park Hall.

Ruscoe said: “Ryan can score, create chances, he plays every game and he trains every day for you. We’re fortunate to have him.

“Ryan was unfortunate at Middlesbrough at under 23 level when it was borderline if he would make it.”

Ruscoe insisted younger players would continue to be given first team opportunities with Chris Craven making an impact in defence at Bala last week.

However the Saints chief would also be striving to bolster his squad ahead of Europe with the Saints desperate to improve on their record of recent seasons.

“We have good young players working to put a shift in here and can do so much offensively,” said Ruscoe.

“With one or two more signings, which we want to get, we can push on in Europe.”
