PEARSON | There's More To Come

Wrexham captain Shaun Pearson believes that there's plenty more to come from the Dragons as they look to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season on Saturday against Maidstone.

Pearson and the side make yet another journey down to the South East - their second to Kent in a week - and will be looking to return to North Wales with maximum points.

"We’ve obviously now got that home win, we’ve got an away win so now we’ll be looking at putting a couple of victories together and that’s what we want to try and do and hopefully push on" said Pearson.

"We know ourselves it’s not been brilliant so far but the good thing is we’ve picked up a couple of wins and we know there’s a lot more to come, so hopefully we can start to see that progression.

"I’ve said this a million times that you don’t want to be that team that starts brilliant but fades away, you want to be that team that gets stronger and stronger every week, and that one that picks up and finds momentum moving along through the season in a snowball effect and hopefully we can do that by getting back to back wins on Saturday".

Pearson, who joined the Dragons in the summer following his departure from Grimsby Town knows how to earn promotion from the National League having done so in 2015 with the Mariners, and insists that the momentum must come at crucial stages.

"I know it’s an old saying but nothing’s won early in the season, we need to be there come Christmas time and make sure you are in a position to then push on.

"Hopefully after Christmas and we’re there or there about and keep ourselves in the mix, we can be that team who then begins to click as the season goes forward and we’ll be the ones that are pushing on and challenging at the right end".

Our opponents Maidstone haven't got off to the best of starts this season having failed to win in their opening four matches, but having picked up a decent point against high-flying Aldershot on Tuesday, Pearson knows preparation is key.

"The gaffer has gone through bits this week and gone through a bit of analysis and what not giving us their strengths and areas for us to take advantage of.

 "They come in on the back of a good result against Aldershot [1-1] and they’re confidence will be up but we can take every confidence from the way we ground the result out on Tuesday [against Gateshead] and push on for Saturday.

"Hopefully we can see a bit more positive attacking play from ourselves and take a bit of confidence having managed to get a result against Gateshead, and hopefully we’ll go in a bit more on the front foot and a bit more open play, but the good signs is that even when we’ve been solid and not given anything away as a whole team it’s a real collective effort and that will always give you a chance in games".
