Wrexham midfielder Akil Wright says his hunt for his first Wrexham goal doesn’t bother him as long as his side is winning games.
The 22-year old has put in some superb performances for the Dragons and earned the August player of the month award, and finding the net is that final piece of the puzzle.
It was frustrating again that I couldn’t score [against Barnet] but it’ll come” said Wright.
“The most important thing for me is that I’m playing and that we’re winning so that’s all that matters, it’s a team effort and three points is more important than a goal for me, but a goal is a bit of a bonus and hopefully it will come.
Wright has been seen to play across the midfield be it a deeper or an advanced role, and whilst higher up the pitch has come closer to hitting the target, including with opportunities last weekend.
“I’ll play anywhere in the midfield really and I was just trying to stop their deep lying midfielder from getting on the ball but if I can get goals in to my game that could be a good position for myself”.
Now the former Fleetwood middle-man is focused on the next task at hand, a home test against newly promoted Havant & Waterlooville.
“We respect every team, we know that every team in this league is capable of winning so you’ve got to be at it week in week out and we’re doing that, we had a bad result against Sutton but we bounced back last week and we look forward to Havant and hopefully another three points”.
Wrexham are unbeaten at home this season having adding Barnet to their list of sides slain in North Wales, Wright and the Wrexham are squad are evidently making the Cae Ras the most difficult place for sides to get a result.
“Every home game we go to win, and really the main aim is to make home a fortress and away we pick up the points as much as we can.
“We take each game as they come, we want to win every game so no matter if it’s Havant or we’re playing Salford we want to win.
“Every game a clean sheet is on the agenda as are the three points, we’re scoring goals and keeping them out which is brilliant, hopefully we can do that again on Saturday”.
Wrexham sit fourth in the table going into the game and know a victory could spring them to top of the tree, however the level headed Wright knows that points, not positions, are what matter for the time being.
“Being top or around it is good but we’ve got to make sure that come the Christmas period we’re still there”.
