WREXHAM manager Denis Smith was quick to praise his players' attitude as they shrugged-off news of the club's money troubles to see off Grimsby.
The Dragons' cash-flow problems are well-documented and on Saturday our sister paper, the Daily Post, revealed that club staff were not paid on time for a third time this season at the end of last month.
But speaking after Saturday's 3-0 win, Smith refused to dwell on Wrexham's off-the-field concerns.
He said: 'The lads have been paid now and they'll all have a good weekend, which is the important thing. If people want to disrupt as much as they can it's up to them. My job is to make sure the lads prove a point and they did that today.'
Chairman Mark Guterman has come out fighting since the weekend, unveiling an ambitious blueprint that he hopes can save his cash-strapped club.
The Cheshire-based property developer plans to turn the Racecourse into an international sporting venue. Redevelopment plans also include a conference centre, a budget hotel and a range of office facilities, although Guterman insists the football side of the business will not be neglected during this transitional period.
He said: 'The best way to increase turnover is through the provision of facilities in and around the Racecourse. At present the company's off-field activities represent a very small turnover and we want to see that turned on its head.'
There are also plans to turn the Kop into an all-seater stand and build a new Yale Stand, housing all the club's present facilities together with commercially available office accommodation.
Added Guterman: 'I'm asked why, if the money is there for development, I don't spend it on players instead. But this scheme will make money for the club to invest later.'
Pitifully low home attendances combined with early exits from both major cup competitions have contributed to almost continuous cash-flow problems this season.
An outstanding loan from the Professional Footballers' Association has put in place a transfer embargo, preventing Smith from bringing in any new faces to boost Wrexham's promotion challenge.
Guterman will meet with representatives of Wrexham's longest-serving supporters' groups next week to discuss the way forward for the club.
