WREXHAM fans have yet to see the best of the club’s new loan signings, striker Chris Llewellyn said last night.
The Racecourse club’s leading scorer this season, who was denied another goal when his first-half header hit the crossbar, claimed a draw was the least the Dragons deserved from their 0-0 stalemate against neighbours Chester City at the Racecourse.
He said: “I think it was a fair result because we probably shaded the first half and I hit the bar, but they came back into it and our keeper has had to make a good save later in the game.
“Goals change games and if my header had gone in it might have settled some of our younger players down and we might have gone on to win.
”But it wasn’t to be and the lads dug in for what could be a vital point for us.”
Yesterday’s draw, which followed Wrexham’s 2-1 win at Chester in August – the club’s only success on the road thus far – left home fans with something to celebrate, but the Wales international insisted a point was not enough.
“At the beginning of the season our fans would probably have settled for four points from six against Chester,” he added.
“But that’s out of the way now and we have to concentrate on putting in some more good performances against the other teams and get some more points on the board.
“We had a lot of people playing today who’ve not been here long and it does take time to settle in.
“We’ll possibly have a few more changes against Grimsby tomorrow night with Mark Jones available again after suspension and Jeff Whitley coming in last Friday, so it’s difficult.
“But we have to go out there and give our best.
“Once the new guys have gelled I’m confident we can get ourselves out of the position in which we currently find ourselves.”
After yesterday’s result, Wrexham manager Brian Carey said: “It was a definite improvement on what has happened in the last couple of weeks. I think it was back to how we were in the first four games when I was in charge.
“It was always going to be a tough game. If Chris had scored in the first half then it’s a different game. “Unfortunately he didn’t, but the first goal was always going to be crucial whichever way it came.
Of his decision to adopt a 3-5-2 formation, the Dragons boss added: “I thought we coped quite well defensively.
“We changed the shape and formation a little bit and it was nice that we were able to do that.
“We have played three at the back and at least we have now got options.”
Carey must now decide whether to continue with the 3-5-2 shape when Wrexham take on Grimsby Town at Blundell Park tomorrow night.
“I need to sit down and look at the formation and decide what we are going to do.”
