WREXHAM striker Lee McEvilly (left) silenced the boo-boys with a two-goal burst in the space of three minutes at Barnet on Saturday as the Dragons secured their first win in 13 league matches.
And Dragons’ skipper Neil Roberts was happy for his team-mate to grab the headlines after the 2-1 success at Underhill.
“Lee is a big lad and he puts himself about so he is always going to be a target for a certain amount of stick, particularly from the opposition fans,” he said.
“The best way to answer them and get them off your back is to do your job and that’s exactly what Lee did.
“If you show pride in the shirt fans will forgive most things and as players we should be going into every game as though it is our last.”
Roberts was equally pleased for manager Brian Carey, who had gone 11 matches withjout a win since taking over from Denis Smith.
“I’m delighted for him because we toughed it out to get the points, but we now have another 11 cup finals to play, starting at Shrewsbury.”
