Saints are currently second in the JD Cymru Premier table, three points behind leaders Connah’s Quay Nomads, ahead of tomorrow’s trip to third-placed Bala Town (5.15pm) as the Championship Conference gets under way.

TNS will play home and away games against the five other teams in the top half of the table during the second phase of the season leading up to the final day of the campaign on May 15.

Limbrick, who was previously assistant manager to Ian Holloway at League Two Grimsby Town, said: “It’s a really exciting time for myself to come in, I think, coming in just as the split happens, and obviously playing against those top teams in the league.

“I think it’s going to be a really tough game Saturday, there’s no denying that whatsoever.

“I’ve watched them and we’ve done our research on them and it’s definitely going to be tough but exciting as well because they really mean something these next 10 games and it’s a mini-season towards now until May 15.”

Limbrick watched Saints make it three league wins in a row when they beat Caernarfon Town 4-1 at Park Hall last Friday.

“It was great first of all to meet everyone here at the ground and see everyone doing their normal roles, so it was good,” said the Australian.

“It was good to watch the game up close. I learned a lot of things from the players that day. It was a really good performance and one that we’ve carried on into training this week.

“We’ve had a really good week so far, the players have been right at it and really taken on board the things that I want to implement.”
