COURSE FORM COULD BE VITAL SAYS McKENNA
TNS v Liverpool
Saints' last visit to the Racecourse was to face mighty Liverpool.
Wrexham v TNS
FAW Premier Cup semi-final
Wednesday 1 February 2006: Away - Racecourse 7.00pm
KEN McKenna says his players' familiarity with the Racecourse Ground will be vital as they face Wrexham in the FAW Premier Cup semi-final.
"We've played at the Racecourse a lot over the last few years," he told BBC Wales Sport.
"We played our European games there, and played a Welsh Cup final and semi-final there.
"It's a fantastic venue and a venue where the lads feel very comfortable in."
But he does fear the League Two side's speed could catch the Saints out in the early stages.
"It'll be a massive step up from the Welsh Premier for us, and the biggest difference will be the tempo the game is played at.
"Whenever you play a team from the Football League the first 20 minutes take a bit of adjusting to.
"That'll cause a problem but once we get used to that I think we'll be OK."
