JORDAN PONTICELLI is confident Wrexham can pick up more wins against the leading sides in the coming weeks and climb away from the relegation zone.

The 17th placed Reds, two points above the National League bottom four, have only lost three games against teams currently in the top ten.

Dean Keates’ side face a number of the promotion contenders in their remaining 11 matches, starting with Saturday’s trip to Yeovil who are fifth.

And Ponticelli, who helped Wrexham register a 2-0 victory at high-flying Bromley last weekend, wants more wins in the quest for survival.

“It is tight below us and above us,” said Ponticelli.

“A few more wins and we can leapfrog a lot of teams so I am confident we can push on and climb the table.

“We have got a good record against the top ten before I even got here and I am sure we can get some more results against them.

"The way we play football, it is a lot better than most other teams.

"Look at the quality of the first goal, getting the ball on the floor and playing, and Davis Keillor-Dunn scores a cracking goal."

The home clash against Torquay United 11 days ago was postponed because of Storm Dennis so Wrexham had to wait for the opportunity to bounce back from the 3-2 defeat at Chesterfield on February 8.

But goals from Keillor-Dunn and Ponticelli either side of the break against Bromley got that loss out of the system.

“It was good to get back out there after having a week off,” said Ponticelli.

“The game at Chesterfield was frustrating but we did well so we wanted to counter on that as soon as possible.

“You don’t want to dwell on a loss.

“All the boys were a bit frustrated with having a week off but we went to Bromley and proved we can bounce back very quickly.”

Wrexham could have built up a bigger half-time lead as Ponticelli twice came close to adding to Keillor-Dunn’s first Reds goal.

Although they had to soak up a lot of pressure after the break, Wrexham defended resolutely and Ponticelli’s late goal sealed a first ever win at Hayes Lane.

“We were on top in the first half,” said Ponticelli.

“I put myself about and tried to make as many problems as I could.

“It was quite a frustrating game for me, I didn’t have many chances.

“I hit the post in the first half and probably should have done better with the other one when I tried to head it but the ball held up in the air a bit so it was kind of behind me.

“The second half was a lot more frustrating for myself but I was happy I got the goal at the end to put it to bed.

“It was a lot more physical and even off the ball I was getting pushed and kicked about, but it is football.

"It is going to toughen me up and it gave me the power to go on and put it in the back of the net.”

Ponticelli was brought in during the January transfer window on loan from Coventry City until the end of the season and has caught the eye with his hard working performances in the Reds' attack.

Handed starts in the last two games, Ponticelli has responded with goals against Chesterfield and Bromley.

“Two 90 minutes worth of hard work which the fans appreciate, which is nice," said the frontman.

“And to get two goals in two games is a nice little bonus for me.”
