Saints won't relax to avoid repeat of history

THE New Saints are in sight of a fourth Welsh Premier crown in six years, but assistant manager Mike Davies is taking nothing for granted.

Nearest challengers Llanelli dropped two points at home on Thursday night to Haverfordwest County, who are the Saints' opponents at Park Hall on Saturday.
TNS now hold an eight-point advantage over the Reds who have played two games less, but Davies says: "We have two tough games remaining so we cannot relax."
With Haverfordwest needing two wins from their final three matches to qualify for next season's slimmed-down league, Derek Brazil's side will be fired-up for the contest.
And the Saints will need no reminding that, almost seven years ago to the day, the Bluebirds put a spoke in the wheel at Treflan with a shock 2-1 win that was a fatal blow.
Rhys Griffiths headed the winner that day as the Saints ended the game with nine men and the title then slipped from their grasp in a 2-2 draw at Aberystwyth, next weekend's final opponents of the season.
