Wrexham defender Kevin Roberts has said that his side aren't getting carried away following a good start to the season but admits that spirit is high in the camp.

The Dragons' versatile defender is looking for a repeat performance of Wrexham's recent good performances against in-form Hartlepool on Tuesday night.

"It’s been really good [team morale], even at the beginning when it was a little bit difficult we were just finding our feet, we’ve always had a good team spirit, but obviously the more you win games and the unbeaten run goes on it does get lifted a little bit more so we’re nice and confident but we’re not getting too cocky or carried away" said Roberts.

Tuesday's opponents Hartlepool are in some red hot form following a disappointing beginning to life in the National League and have now won three games on the bounce including a 1-0 victory over former league leaders Dagenham & Redbridge. 

"They’re in a similar position to us having won three on the bounce, they’ve come down from a league above so they’ve obviously got quality in the squad, so another tough game but we’re at home we’ll be looking for the three points".

Wrexham come into the game on the back of a goalless draw away at Torquay United on Saturday, although it wasn't maximum points Roberts was happy to take a draw and a clean sheet.

"We were happy with the clean sheet, that's four clean sheets in a row now so that’s good" he said.

Having been out of the side for the past three matches, Roberts was on the bench at Plainmoor but was called upon after half an hour, as James Hurst was forced off through injury.

"I’d been out of the team for three games so it was nice to get back in, I’ve had to be patient but the lads have been class with three clean sheets and three wins so no complaints from me, if I’m needed again on Tuesday night hopefully we can get another one".

"I thought it was a pretty tight game and a good point in the end, in this league anywhere you go you would probably take a point as long as you can back it up with three points at home".
