DIRECTOR of football Andy Preece says the Wingmakers have little hope of chasing TNS for the title and that the runners-up spot is his priority.

"I think TNS are gone, because they are just relentless," he said after Saturday's 2-1 win over Prestatyn Town. 

"Anyone who finishes within 15 points of TNS is going to be clear in second, that happened last year.

"Ultimately, for us, to get second again would be an unbelievable achievement so that's what we're aiming for.

"But it's going to be tough, there's a lot of teams in with a shout of getting second and the majority of teams have a chance of getting in the top six, so it's an interesting league this year."

Preece was pleased to have recorded back-to-back home wins over Bangor and Prestatyn and feels that performances will improve even further when he has a full squad at his disposal.

"We haven't quite got a full squad yet, Lee Owens has just come back on the bench today but probably not ready, we've still got Ian Kearney out and Ryan Wade, two of our key players, so we've still got a few problems but I'm pleased with the form that we're in, although nothing can be taken for granted. 

"I don't think it's a three horse race for second, I think it's more of an eight horse race and anyone who gets in to the top six can get that second place.

"It's really tight so you've just got to keep your wits about you and be as consistent as you can."
