KEVIN ROBERTS is happy averaging two points a game but wants victory against Boreham Wood tomorrow to stay ahead of the target.

Wrexham go into the clash at The Racecourse on the back of Tuesday’s goalless draw with AFC Fylde and a first ever win against Dover Athletic on the opening day.

Roberts will certainly be a lot more content if Wrexham seal victory against Boreham Wood.

“We are not happy, we would have liked six points,” said Roberts, who was sent off in the home fixture with Boreham Wood last April.

“But it is not the worst start to the season, four points and two clean sheets so we can build on that.

“If you are averaging two points a game you are doing something right but we have got to get a good result against Boreham Wood.

“It is no use going into the game and thinking we are alright otherwise you will find yourselves on four points after three games and that is not a good position to be in.

“We want to be on seven points out of three games, with another clean sheet.”

Boreham Wood, beaten by Tranmere Rovers in last season’s play-off final, have also taken four points from their opening two matches.

“They got to the play-off final so they are obviously a really strong side,” said Roberts.

“I don’t think they have changed much, they have probably lost two of the better players but they have replaced them with good players as well.”

Wrexham stepped up a gear and produced a much better performance in the second half against Fylde, putting the visitors under intense pressure during an impressive spell.

Although the Reds were unable to break the deadlock, Roberts was pleased to keep a second successive clean sheet.

“First half I thought we were way off it, the standards we have set ourselves,” said Roberts.

“Second half we gave a good account of ourselves.

“The tempo was really high, it was end to end, it was exciting.

“We want to keep clean sheets every week but sometimes you are just involved in a really good game.

“Second half, the quality of the game was one of the top games you are going to see this season.”

Wrexham, one of the lowest scorers in the division last season, look more of threat going forward under Sam Ricketts.

Although he welcomes an attack-minded approach, Roberts, who helped Wrexham keep a club record 22 clean sheets last season, does not to become less solid at the back.

“We are just building on last year,” said Roberts. “Dean Keates was in charge and we just laid the solid foundation. You can’t go from one extreme to the other, you have got to lay a base first.

“The gaffer has come in and he is building on top of that, and we are trying to do a bit more going forward while keeping it safe at the back.”

Roberts, yet to score for Wrexham since joining from Halifax a year ago, regrets not taking his chance when he fired over from a good position against Fylde.

“I laced it instead of just side-footing it,” added Roberts. “There were a lot of bodies there so I thought I am going to have to put a bit on it where realistically I should have just side-footed it nice and low. Anything can happen then, as long as it is on target.”
