WREXHAM go to one of the League Two title favourites tomorrow still brimming with anger over the refereeing decision that cost them a point on Tuesday night.
A controversial last-minute goal denied the Dragons a hard-earned 0-0 draw at Notts County.
Manager Denis Smith was left flabbergasted by the official's decision to let Stacey Long's strike stand, as centre-half Dennis Lawrence was lying prostrate on the ground after a heavy challenge.
And the goal was not referee Mike Thorpe's only contentious decision f the night, as he also had failed to punish County's David Pipe after he took out Mark Jones when he was clean through on goal with the score at 0-0.
So Smith, who remains focused on taking his men to Northampton Town tomorrow, was not slow in venting his anger.
He said: 'It was an absolute travesty. The major decisions in the game went against us but there's nothing we can do about it now.
'The players are angry because they are winners. People around the country will see it as 1-0 to Notts County and that's that.
'They say these decisions even themselves out over the course of the season so let's just hope that is the case.'
The defeat meant the Dragons failed to build on their comfortable 2-0 victory over Boston United on the opening day of the season.
Goals either side of half-time from Jones and new-boy Lee Roche were the least Wrexham deserved, as they overran one of League Two's biggest summer spenders.
Yet it took until the interval before Smith's men got going on Tuesday night, as it was only the heroics of goalkeeper Michael Ingham that kept them in it as County dominated the first period.
But a stronger second half performance will give Smith confidence ahead of their trip to Northampton's Sixfields Stadium.
Colin Calderwood's men have been denied in the play-offs for the past two seasons.
But the former Scottish international is determined to take them up this year, and has made a host of impressive new signings, including experienced midfield duo Eoin Jess and Ian Taylor.
Yet Northampton have made an indifferent start to the new campaign. After drawing at Lincoln City 1-1 on Saturday, they went down to a shock 2-1 home defeat to newly promoted Barnet on Tuesday.
Wrexham have no fresh injury worries. nTrinidad international Dennis Lawrence has been confirmed as Wrexham's new club captain.
Darren Ferguson will continue in his role as team captain, but Lawrence is the man to follow in the footsteps of the retired Brian Carey.
Lawrence said: 'It is a great honour for me. I also look on it as a big personal achievement in my career.
'I'm glad it's official - I'm delighted to be given such a responsibility.'
