The New Saints boss Scott Ruscoe gave mention to forward Greg Draper who netted four times in the side’s 6-2 victory over Airbus Broughton UK.

Draper netted a hat-trick in the first half, before grabbing a fourth in the second half.

Dean Ebbe and Chris Marriott also got on the scoresheet as TNS got back to winning ways following two consecutive league defeats.

Ruscoe was pleased with his side’s performance, and said he is happy to see the team taking their chances.

“It was nice to get back to winning ways of course,” he said.

“Greg scored four very good goals.

“He added to his tally and deservedly so; his work-rate and his finishing is fantastic.

“I think we made a great start to the game and I felt as though we dominated throughout.

“We could have had a few more goals – no disrespect to Airbus at all, but we could have scored 10 – but it was pleasing to see the chances being created more because obviously, we’ve failed to score in the two games leading up to this one.

“I thought the attitude was there with the players and I felt as though the way it happened and the way we managed the game was excellent.”

The victory means Saints move up to second in the table, behind Barry Town United who remain unbeaten. Ruscoe insists that league positions do not concern him at this stage of the season.

He said: “We’re in mid-October so it’s still very very early. We’ve only played 10 games, so I’m not too concerned that we’re not at the top of the table.

“What I am concerned about is getting the level of performances consistently good.

“We’re improving though, and we’re starting to look more like our old selves.

“We really want to focus on getting a good run of form going – once we get that run going, I’m more than confident the league position will look after itself.”

Saints are at Penybont on Saturday (2.30pm).
