McKENNA FEARS THE BOOT
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 on McKenna.
"The board would be well within their rights to look for another manager," he admitted.
"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.
