North Wales Crusaders coach Anthony Murray says his side will review their pursuit of the top six on a month by month basis.

The Wrexham club returned to form in style on Sunday, registering a convincing 42-6 home victory over Coventry Bears.

An assured display in both defence and attack saw the hosts run in seven tries to lift themselves to ninth in the division.

Reflecting on a month of League One action that yielded six points from four games, Murray is refusing to look too far ahead this term.

He said: "It's been a very good last 30 days overall for ourselves.

"Just before the start of the month we sat down with the players and looked at the four games that we had ahead of us and set ourselves a target.

"Now we're coming away from those games with six points from a possible eight, which is a decent return.

"The only disappointing aspect from our point of view was the Keighley match at home where a poor first half to the game cost us.

"But I felt like we responded to that performance very well against Coventry. We had a higher completion rate, there were better ends to our sets and and our kick and chase game was much better too.

"We spoke to the players about all of those elements before the Coventry game and they've improved in all three areas, so we're delighted.

"We're one of a few teams chasing those top six places this season in a really close division - there's very little between a lot of sides and it looks like it could be that way for the rest of the season.

"Our approach will be to keep planning for the three or four games ahead of us in that particular month, we're realistic in our aims and know that it won't be possible to win every game.

"But we'll set our own in-house goals and look to keep improving game by game. If we do that then we'll give ourselves a strong chance of being successful this season if some other results go our way."

A tough June fixture list awaits, with a trip to league leaders Bradford Bulls next up on June 9 before clashes with in-form York City Knights and an away game at London Skolars.

But the Cru have been buoyed by the return of Olly Ashall, who bagged two tries in his return to the side on Sunday.

The on-loan full-back has linked up with the Cru as part of the club's dual-registration agreement with Super League side Widnes Vikings.

Murray added: "Olly did really well for us after coming back into the squad. He picked up an injury early in the season but he looked fresh and sharp against Coventry.

"He was involved in a lot of our attacks and showed what he's capable of by scoring a couple of nice tries, so we're really happy to have him back in the fold."
