ANOTHER two goals from Matt Derbyshire - taking his tally to eight in as many games for Wrexham - were not enough for victory at Cheltenham Town last night, but manager Denis Smith admitted the 2-2 draw was a fair result.
"It's frustrating not to win when you score two goals away from home, but this game was more like a cup-tie," he said.
"Both sides were going for the three points from the start and, although I thought they edged the first half, we were better after the break."
Wrexham, who took the lead inside two minutes, conceded an equaliser immediately after losing Trinidad international defender Dennis Lawrence to injury, although his replacement, teenager Mike Williams, was less at fault than goalkeeper Mike Ingham.
"Dennis is going to the World Cup this summer and he was replaced by a youth team player, which sums it up," added the Racecourse boss.
"Mike is going to be a good player one day but at the moment it's difficult for him to come into a situation like that.
"You need experienced players and we saw that when Darren Ferguson came on after half-time.
"I'm getting a few more of them back from injury now, which is promising for the games to come, but I'm frustrated because we came here this evening to win the game."
