Danny Wright's feeling fresh for more


Richard Williams

REVITALISED leading scorer Danny Wright wants to pick up where he left off when Wrexham take on Kidderminster Harriers at Aggborough tomorrow (3pm).

Having scored twice in the 5-1 victory at Braintree Town 10 days ago, putting Wrexham second in the table behind leaders Grimsby Town on goal difference with a game in hand, Wright was rested for Saturday’s FA Trophy first round tie against Rushall Olympic which the Reds won 5-0.

Wrexham are also away at Alfreton Town on Tuesday before hosting Nuneaton next weekend and Wright, who started the previous 14 matches before his breather, is raring to go.

“It is always nice to have a little rest,” said Wright. “The Monday morning where you usually come in for training and feel a bit stiff and achy, it was nice to feel fresh, then have a good week’s training and take that into the weekend fixture.

“Obviously it was good to see the lads get a win and it was a good performance as well. We have got a busy week now with three games in a week and we have got to get back to picking up points.

“Our last league result was a great win at Braintree so hopefully we can continue that this weekend.”

Asked whether he wanted to face Rushall after taking his tally to seven goals at Braintree, the Reds’ top marksman added: “I wasn’t fussed.

“If the manager wanted me to play then I would have looked forward to it and looked forward to hopefully getting another couple of goals.

“He felt a few of us needed a rest which is understandable so either way I was happy.”

And while registering victory at Kidderminster remains the priority in the quest for promotion, Wright is keen to continue finding the back of the net.

“Obviously three points is the main objective,” said Wright. “Hopefully we get that but a goal is always nice, especially with scoring a couple in my last game.

“If you can continue getting a few goals in consecutive games, it really adds up the tally and puts you up there.

“I had a good September (with four goals) and then sort of went off the boil again.

The goal in the FA Cup (against Alfreton on November 3) helped and it was nice to get a couple at Braintree.

“Hopefully I can kick on now and get a few more before Christmas which will be a good total for me.”

If Wrexham win tomorrow there is a chance they could replace Grimsby, who make the trip to Ebbsfleet United, at the summit.

“It is a possibility and there is no bigger incentive than if you win the game there is a chance of going top,” said Wright.

“We feel we have played well in the last couple of games. We are unbeaten in three so that is a great position for us to try and continue.

“The next three games over the next week are crucial and hopefully we win the majority of them.”

Wrexham’s strikers are in a rich vein of form and player-boss Morrell has to select three starting frontmen from an available six at Aggborough.

“It is great for the team if all the strikers are scoring. You are always going to be winning games,” added Wright. “Hopefully I will be in the team, score a few more goals as well and we get three points.”
