Five Talking Points From TNS FC’s 2-1 Victory Against Newtown AFC

Ryan Brobbel 

Perhaps we need to use the prefix free-kick specialist, when referring to our number 8. A foul outside the area saw Brobz step up, strike the ball over the wall and into the back of the net.

On TNS Radio, we find ourselves running out of superlatives when it comes to describing Brobbel.

Having played for Northern Ireland up to U-21 level, what are the chances that he could go one step further? On current scintillating form, he must at the very least be on the radar of the powers that be.

 

Dean Ebbe

Repaying Scott Ruscoe’s faith in him, five minutes before the break, the popular Irish striker put The New Saints 2-0 ahead.

There is healthy competition for a starting place and with three quality players all vying to get on the pitch from the off, another goal for Ebbe does his prospects no harm at all.

His third league goal of the season, he is the current joint leading TNS goalscorer, along with Billy Whitehouse.

 

Top Of The Table 

Come the final whistle, the three points meant that we headed to the top of the JD Cymru Premier for the first time this season.

It’s all very tight, with three points separating five sides, which of course highlights how competitive the league is.

 

Three Wins On The Bounce 

With three consecutive victories, The New Saints FC is the current JD Cymru Premier in-form side. Connah’s Quay Nomads have two, while Airbus UK and Bala Town are the only other sides to have a ‘W’ next to their latest results, with both on one.

 

The Unbeaten Home Run Continues

We have to go back to November 9, 2018 for the last time that we tasted domestic defeat at Park Hall. On that occasion, a late penalty for Caernarfon Town meant that they were the side celebrating come the final whistle.

At the time of writing, that’s a run of 306 days without defeat. By the time we play again at Park Hall, we will be going into the game on 323.
