WREXHAM midfielder Danny Williams is urging fans not to write their season off just yet.
A chorus of boos rang out around the Racecourse after Saturday’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to Hereford United and manager Brian Carey himself even admitted he would have done the same had he paid for his ticket and watched such a dismal performance.
And already some people have discussed relegation and Wrexham in the same breath, much to the annoyance of Williams.
“Apart from Saturday it’s not been too bad so far this season,” said 28-year-old Williams. “We lost at Bradford when we shouldn’t have done and at Darlington when we might not have deserved the win, but we certainly didn’t deserve to lose.
“The performances haven’t been that bad and we have played some good football in parts, but on Saturday against Hereford we got exactly what we deserved from the game. That was nothing.”
And on the fans showing their disapproval at the final whistle, Williams added: “They pay their money and they are entitled to their opinion. And on Saturday they certainly told us what they thought.
“You can’t let it get to you or affect you. I’ve played in games like that, maybe not quite as bad as that, and getting booed is part and parcel of football.
“Last season we were down at the bottom and it was not nice at all, and I can tell you that everyone is working hard and trying to make sure we are not down there again this season.
“But what I can’t believe is that some people are already talking about relegation.
“It’s four games into the season, only just September.
“If we are where we are in May then people can start to talk about relegation and the like, but until then I’d say get behind us.”
Wrexham now have a short break because of international call-ups to Chris Llewellyn, Steve Evans and Mark Jones, and is something Williams admits has come at the wrong time.
“If we’d have won on Saturday then fine, no one would have said anything about this game being called off,” he said.
“But now after Saturday and the performance, you just want to get back to playing as soon as possible to put it behind you.
“That’s the worst thing, when you have a bad performance and then all of a sudden there’s a break and you dwell on the defeat.
“I just want to get back to playing as soon as possible.
“It’s going to be better for the lads on the international call-up.
“They’ve got two good games against Germany and Slovakia coming up and will have a chance to put last week to the back of their minds.”
