WREXHAM manager Brian Little admitted it was a case of two points dropped as a result of yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Altrincham at Moss Lane.
The Dragons have now failed to secure a victory in three trips on the road to date and their cause was not helped against the part-timers when they fell behind after just six minutes.
Little said: “The start unsettled everyone and we never really gathered ourselves after that. We have talked about that in the dressing room and it is disappointing based on the fact we have had two really good home performances and then three very different performances away from home.
“When you go into games like this the important thing is to try and get the first goal and I felt if we did take the lead we might take it away.
“Credit to Altrincham, because they worked hard, but it was a poor goal to concede.”
A third goal in five games by striker Jefferson Louis brought Wrexham level before the break, but the visitors failed to build on that in the remainder of the game, much to Little’s dismay.
“Getting back into the game was hard work and when we got into good positions with free kicks we didn’t get the right delivery,” he added.
“But I always felt that once we got back into this game we were the only team that was going to win.
“We knew that as the home side they would put a couple of balls into our box that might cause a little problem, but generally speaking only Tom (Kearney) has played today, which is not really enough to win matches at any level.”
The Racecourse boss said it was obvious that teams like part-timers Altrincham would want to beat Wrexham and warned that he would make changes if the situation does not improve
“We are in a division where we are looked upon as a team the opposition want to play and we are getting a reputation based on our two home wins,” he said. “The disappointing aspect is that we are not taking those performances away from home.
“We may find we’ve got different personnel who can do it away from home. I am not here to watch them doing it one week and then something different the next.
“We’ve seen a couple of things in our home games which are very pleasing but what we can’t do is get to the point where they become absolute musts for us to do well in the league.”
