TNS manager Anthony Limbrick has insisted nobody is getting carried away after his side established a 12-point lead at the top of the JD Cymru Premier.

Victory at Bala Town ensured the Oswestry side make the trip to Barry Town United on Saturday with a commanding lead at the top.

Limbrick said: “Bala had the potential to be a very tricky game for us and we are pleased with the win.

“It was nice to see four different scorers on the night and while it was disappointing to concede late in the game we had already secured the points so I was pleased with our performance.”

Despite the scoreline the Saints coach insisted Bala were closer than the final score suggests.

“They had their pressure and we had to change a few things tactically but two goals in each half meant we did our jobs well and I was very pleased with our performance overall.

“Barry will be another tough test for us, they are always a difficult team, especially at Jenner Park and we will have to be at our best.

“It would be nice to end on three points before Christmas and we will be working hard in training this week to ensure we are as prepared as possible for another tough match.”

Meanwhile Limbrick insisted his side had not looked at the table.

“We are 12 points clear but it is still midway through the season and a lot of football has to be played yet.

“From our point of view we take each game as it comes and do not look at the table too much.

“Our goal at the start of the season was to win the league after not winning it for the past two years so we will keep on doing things the way we have been doing them as it has served us well so far.”
