Saints bid to stay on track for the treble

THE New Saints aim to stay focused on an historic treble when they face Llanelli in Saturday’s Welsh Cup semi-final at Aberystwyth’s Park Avenue (kick-off 3.10pm).

Lying top of the Welsh Premier and already in the Loosemores League Cup final, the Saints are bidding to maintain their march but, despite having had the better of the Reds in their last two Welsh Premier outings, they are under no illusions they’ll face a tough examination front of the live TV cameras.
"They are the form side in the league, they’ve only lost twice in 22 games and, although both times were against us, we know it’s going to be very tough,” said TNS boss Mike Davies.
"They’ll be desperate to beat us as the Welsh Cup could be their last chance of getting into Europe, so they’re going to be a difficult side to beat.
"But we can’t ask for any more than to be challenging in three competitions at this stage of the season and hopefully we can keep that going."
Winger Richie Partridge and full-back Chris Marriott are struggling with injuries, while Barry Hogan misses out with a two match ban.
Reds' boss Andy Legg may well include himself in the starting line-up as TNS loanee Craig Williams is ineligible to face his parent club and Chris Llewellyn is out for the season.
