JORDAN MAGUIRE-DREW has vowed to be in the thick of the action and "get the crowd on their feet" during his time at Wrexham.

The winger, who has joined on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion until the end of the season, made a big impact in his first start as the Reds drew 0-0 against AFC Fylde on Tuesday.

Having enjoyed a successful loan spell at Dagenham and Redbridge during the 2016-17 campaign, where he scored 14 times, Maguire-Drew is predicting more goals and assists while at The Racecourse.

"I like to beat people, I like to create and score goals," said Maguire-Drew.

"I will do that all year for us and the more match fitness I get.

"I just want to get ball early to feet and create chances out of nothing, I like to get the crowd on their feet.

"It was my first game properly playing with the boys and it is just getting to know each other.

"Once we do that, the next few games I think we will have no problem creating and scoring goals."

Maguire-Drew lit up the first half with a dazzling run from his own half, beating two defenders before firing just over the bar.

"That is what I like to do, I like to get the crowd off their feet," said Maguire-Drew. "I caught it sweet, it just kept rising and rising."

Wrexham stepped up a gear in the second half and during a spell of intense pressure, Maguire-Drew's cross was headed home by Paul Rutherford but the goal was ruled out for offside.

"The one I put in for Ruthers, I don't know if it was offside or not," said Maguire-Drew.

"I turned around and celebrated, but if it is offside, it is offside, it is one of them things."

Wrexham, who beat Dover Athletic 1-0 on the opening day, were unable to take any of their chances in the second period but Maguire-Drew wants the Reds to pick up where they left off when Boreham Wood visit The Racecourse on Saturday.

"If we start like we started the second half against Boreham Wood, I think we will have a great chance of getting the three points," said Maguire-Drew.

Maguire-Drew, who spent time with Lincoln City and Coventry City last season, only joined Wrexham last week and admits he felt the effects of his first full game.

"I was really tired, it was my first proper 90 minutes," added Maguire-Drew.

"To be fair the crowd were brilliant, they helped me get through that so I was just running on adrenalin the last 10 minutes."

Manager Sam Ricketts believes there is a lot more to come from Maguire-Drew.

"He was making his debut, he has only trained with us a couple of days," added Ricketts.

"I spoke to him after the game and he said he is just trying to get to know everyone's game; where do they like the ball, where shall I go when they get the ball.

"That will come with time but you have seen his ability.

"He picked the ball up 20 yards in his own half, drifted past one or two, kept driving and what he has got is a really sweet left foot.

"He just needs to hit the target at the end of it!"
