WREXHAM have had to wait a long time to get defeat out of the system and Dean Keates has urged his players to deliver the goods against Woking at The Racecourse.

The Reds were beaten 2-1 by fellow strugglers Aldershot in their last outing a fortnight ago and Keates' men were booed off the pitch by supporters following a woeful performance.

Without a game last weekend after exiting the FA Trophy, there has been plenty of time to mull over the loss which leaves 20th placed Wrexham two points above the relegation zone.

Consistency has been a problem this season but Wrexham responded to defeat over the festive period by winning their next game and Keates wants the same response against play-off contenders Woking.

"Everything about football is consistency," said Keates. "It has not been where we want it to be, you want to go four, five, six games on the bounce winning.

"We have not shown that but one thing we have shown is that on the back end of a disappointment, we have gone and got the result that we needed.

"We need to make sure that we go out there and first and foremost show the pride and passion that needs to be shown for this football club, the work-rate, the tempo and the intensity.

"You talk about fine margins and we need one or two things to go our way, the ones that you can't control like the bounce of the ball and the odd decision, but as long as the lads are working hard and giving absolutely everything then things normally fall into place.

"I don't like losing games, the fans don't expect to lose games so we need to make sure that we get a reaction and we put a few wrongs right."
