Declan McManus – Leading the Cymru Premier’s goal scoring charts, McManus is undoubtedly TNS’ main threat. He has as average a goal per 90 minutes ratio of 0.94 having scored 13 goals in only 14 appearances in the league. The 27-year-old joined the league leaders during the summer from Dunfermline Athletic for £60,000 and has proven his price tag with his performances domestically and in Europe for the Saints. He played an instrumental role in TNS’ incredible run in Europe which saw them reach the third qualifying round of the Europa Conference League. The Scotsman scored six goals in total during that run, which included a super hat-trick against Viktoria Plzen.
