|TNS boss Ken McKenna admits he would not be surprised if he
were to be sacked after Saints again finished on the losing side.
Welsh Premier runners-up in each of the last three seasons, yesterday's Welsh
Cup final defeat at the hands of great rivals Rhyl heaped more disappointment
"The board would be well within their rights to look for another manager,"
"We'll have to look at ourselves to see where we've gone wrong. But I think
I can take them on a bit yet. We are full-time but there's a few things we've
got to get right. I believe I can turn it round but whether I get the time do
that is out of my hands.
"I'd like to be given the time but I'll fully understand if I'm not. I've
been a manager for three years now and I've got to look at myself, at my performances
and my decision-making. I'll analyse things over the next few weeks and speak
to the board and we'll take it from there.
"The job is out of my hands. I believe I can do it and that I can turn
it around and I won't run away from it. But if the board feel they want another
man in whom they have more confidence, I'll accept that as well."
However, the inside track at TNS is that McKenna will probably get one more
season to prove his worth.
With the dividing line between success and failure so thin this season, continuity
may be regarded as being more productive than a change of manager.
