Morrell delight as Wrexham FC don their shooting boots


Richard Williams

PLAYER-BOSS Andy Morrell felt Wrexham were a real threat going forward as they registered their biggest win of the season on Saturday.

Wrexham thrashed lowly Nuneaton Town 6-1 at The Racecourse with the Reds building up a 3-0 lead by the interval before scoring three more goals in the second half.

“They were all good in patches,” said Morrell. “In the final third, I thought we were really good in the first half especially.

“We were a bit nervy and apprehensive for the first 15-20 minutes. Because you are coming off the back of a defeat you want to do well but once we scored a really good goal, that settled us down a little bit.

“Then we were able to play our stuff and I didn’t think they could live with the movement of our front three and the middle three especially and our full-backs as well so I am really pleased.

“It was difficult second half because you are 3-0 up. Some people went into cruise mode and I was disappointed to concede but to score six I would have taken it in the morning.

“It was important just to get three points and to bounce back, and we did. I am pleased and we scored some really good goals as well.”

Five different players got on the scoresheet and although striker Danny Wright, who missed the game through injury, is the leading marksmen with seven goals Morrell is pleased everyone is chipping in.

“I would obviously like somebody to be on 25 goals by now but that is not the case and the way we play, that is not overly going to be the way either,” said Morrell, who has seen 18 different players find the target so far this season.

“But when all the strikers are chipping in with a few, if you can get four people on over 10 goals then you are going alright and we are heading that way.

“We have got a few over five and six, I don’t really care where the goals come from as long as they are coming and if you can add a striker that scores you 15 or 20 then even better.”

Strikers Rob Ogleby and Adrian Cieslewicz came off the substitutes bench and grabbed a goal apiece and Morrell was delighted with their response.

“I think a few would have been disappointed not to be in the starting XI after last week but I picked the team that I thought would win the game and that was the case,” added Morrell.

“But the lads that came on have reacted in the right way as well to say you maybe shouldn’t have left me out from the start as well.

“Rob took his goal really well, it is a difficult one to put past the keeper, and Adrian’s was an absolutely faboulous strike so everybody is chomping at the bit which is what we want.”
