WREXHAM travel to fellow former Football League side York City tonight for a second taste of life in the Blue Square Premiership.
Assistant boss Brian Carey made the long trip south on Saturday to see tonight’s opponents beat Crawley 1-0 and he is expecting another testing contest in front of the television cameras this evening.
Carey added: “Our message to the lads this week has been that a lot of the teams in this league have really good home records and we are going on the road now with three of the next four away from the Racecourse.”
And Darran Kempson has urged his teammates not to get carried away after the Dragons made a perfect start to life in the Blue Square Premier.
After the 5-0 win over Stevenage Kempson said: “It’s a fantastic start for us. We’ve been working hard in training and everything just clicked.
“We could not have got off to a better start and I think the fans will be as pleased about it as we are ourselves.
“But we can’t get carried away, we have to keep our feet on the ground and work hard.”
Midfielder Levi Mackin will miss tonight’s York game after seeing red on Saturday following two cautions.
Mackin admits he was aggrieved by the referee’s decision but said it would also serve as a warning for the future.
He said: “I picked up my first booking in my first tackle of the game when you would normally expect a warning to be given.
“As for the second yellow I felt the ball was there to be won and I thought that’s what I did. Looking back I should have stayed on my feet.”
He added: “I’ll be very, very disappointed if I’m out of the team for a while and it’s something I’ve been thinking and worrying about ever since it happened.
“But it’s an incident I will certainly learn from and next time I’ll consider the possible consequences before diving in.”
