RHYL went back to the top of the Welsh Premier with a 2-0 home win over Bangor City on Wednesday night.
After weathering some early Bangor pressure, the Lilywhites took control in the second-half, with former TNS man Timmy Edwards bagging both goals.
The win means Rhyl can lift their first-ever title on Saturday if they beat Porthmadog at The Traeth, leaving Saints as bridesmaids once again.
TNS manager Ken McKenna was not among the 1,247 crowd at Belle Vue.
"We did our job by getting a result against Connah's Quay the other night and I felt there was no point in going to watch it," he said.
Whether a final win this Saturday will be enough to claim a second title for TNS remains to be seen, but McKenna praised his team's efforts over recent weeks.
"I felt we showed a lot of character after the game at Belle Vue, which we were unlucky to lose," he says.
"Afterwards, the players were told they could either lie down or make it hard for Rhyl and they've responded well. We just have to keep it going."
The manager felt the pressure during Tuesday night's hard-earned 3-2 win at home to Connah's Quay.
"I've never been so stressed out on the sidelines - it was horrible.
"We looked okay going forward but we were nervous at the back and conceded two goals from set pieces which is unlike us.
"Nomads worked hard and were really up for the game, but we got the result in the end, which was the important thing."
Saints play their final game of the season against Welshpool Town at Maes-Y-Dre on Saturday.
