DEAN KEATES was glad his players were hurting after suffering a first home defeat and he is expecting another positive reaction at Wealdstone tomorrow.

Wrexham went down 1-0 against Maidenhead, who went into the game pointless after three outings and sitting bottom of the National League, on Monday but Keates is expecting the Reds to bounce back against the Stones like they did last Saturday when beating Yeovil 1-0.

That win came four days after Keates' men lost 1-0 at Solihull.

"They are a bit despondent, they are down," said Keates.

"It's not a bad thing, I want them to be like that. They are hurting.

"We had the reaction from Solihull, we have got to get a reaction on the back end of Monday."

Keates is pleased with performances this season but he knows results are all that matters.

"Results define how people feel. Everybody wants to win football matches," said Keates.

"What people see is you have lost against the team bottom of the league but that is the National League for you.

"Anybody can beat anybody in that division.

"We are disappointed with the result and we have got to rectify it at the weekend."

Keates revamped his squad over the summer but he is not looking to complete any more new signings.

"As it stands, no," said Keates. "We have got everything I feel we need so as it stands we are fully loaded."
