Revenge would be sweet for Saints

A REVENGE victory over Port Talbot Town on Saturday will keep The New Saints at the head of the pack in the race for the Welsh Premier title.

The Saints' only league defeat of the current campaign came at the GenQuip Stadium in September, when a brace from Liam McCreesh saw then lose 2-0.
Andy Cale's men felt they were harshly-treated that day, with claims that the second goal was offside and that Steve Abbott had earned a penalty after being halted by a trip.
Saints got some measure of recompense with a 2-0 League Cup semi-final victory in November and a repeat performance would halt the Steelmen's recent charge up the table.
Challenging strongly for a European spot, Talbot are the league's in-form team with 22 points out of a possible 24 in their last eight games.
But Mark Jones's side have never won away to TNS in nine attempts and face the challenge of breaking down a defence that has conceded just nine goals in an unbeaten 21-match run over the last 13 months at Park Hall.
