TNS host Haverfordwest County on Saturday with the Oswestry club bidding to extend their lead at the top of the JD Cymru to double figures.

Last week's 5-0 thrashing of Cardiff Met saw the Saints go seven points clear at the top.

Victory this weekend could see Anthony Limbrick's side extend their lead to an imposing 10 points and effectively hand one hand on the title trophy by Christmas.

However Limbrick insisted the lessons of the past two years mean his side would not lose focus until both hands were on the silverware.

"We just want to improve on last season," said Limbrick. "The club did not win the league for the past two years and we are challenging Connah's Quay Nomads' defence."

The Nomads have picked up form in recent weeks but the damage to their title defence already looks to have been sustained in the opening few weeks of the season with manager Andy Morrison since departing the Deesiders.

Limbrick said: "We are seven points clear but we can improve and the players know that and remain hungry.

"In the last few weeks we played badly against Bala and won and played well at Flint and drew so it was important we played well against Cardiff Met.

"We spoke before the game and the players accepted their was room for improvement in our game.

"It was pleasing to see us score five goals but just as pleasing to see us defend so well and keep that clean sheet at the end when Met were pressing.

"We have not been keeping many clean sheets of late so this was important.

"We can still improve though and we need to be more clinical while also ensuring we work as a team to keep our clean sheets."

Limbrick warned his players to expect a tough weekend against Haverfordwest on Saturday.

The Bluebirds have revived their campaign following a sluggish start and last week's 1-0 win over Newtown will see them make the trip over the border in fine fettle.

"We played them last season and it was one of our toughest games," said Limbrick. "They will be buzzing after last week's win and we can expect a difficult game.

"We know what to expect and we will be doing our best to prepare and look to keep our run going."
