KEATES | It Takes Time

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Fri 11 Aug 2017

Wrexham boss Dean Keates will be looking to continue on from Tuesday's win against Maidenhead and take that performance into our long journey to Dover Athletic on Saturday, but insists it 'takes time'. 

The Dragons took maximum points from our first game on the road having fallen to a 1-0 loss against Macclesfield Town at the Racecourse.

"We asked for a reaction from last weekend, not many teams go there [Maidenhead] and get three points, that’s only the fourth time they’ve lost at home in three years so to a man the lads were outstanding," said the boss.

"It wasn’t pretty, but it was full of everything the fans want to see, full of passion, desire, the two centre midfielders were outstanding covering every blade of grass and first to every ball and everyone put a shift in".

Pleased with our last outing, Wrexham meet at the Crabble on Saturday to face a difficult Dover test and Keates wants to take the expectation of his squad and use it to his advantage.

"We were disappointed last weekend, with the optimism around the place, it’s a new squad and it takes time to gel, they know each other and have crossed paths at other clubs but it’s a new environment and a new football club and there’s big expectation here.

"They [Wrexham fans] came out last weekend over 6,000 fans and over 350 away from home, that’s frightening! To have gone down to Maidenhead on a Tuesday night I’m glad the lads sent them home happy, we hope to do the same on Saturday".
