ADI YUSSUF is off the mark for Wrexham but the striker was far from happy with his performance as the Reds suffered another loss.

Yussuf scored twice but it was all in vain as Dean Keates' side went down 4-3 against Wealdstone, Wrexham suffering a second successive defeat at the hands of a team sitting bottom of the National League.

Although he bagged his first goals since arriving at The Racecourse on a season-long loan from Blackpool, Yussuf admits he could have done a lot better.

"Delighted is not the word," said Yussuf.

"Obviously it is about the team and I don't think I was good enough personally.

"It was a poor performance but it was my first game back from injury and I just hope that next time I score, we win.

"Scoring is not the same when you lose and the boys are all disappointed.

"If we play poor and win, it is fine, but we played poor and lost so we have got to look back at the game and see where we can improve."

Yussuf put Wrexham 2-1 up and also scored a late consolation goal in added time at The Grosvenor Vale Stadium, but the frontman preferred to look at the bigger picture.

"From a personal point of view it is always good to score," said Yussuf.

"I always believe in myself that I will always score goals. I have absolutely no doubt about that but my overall game has to improve.

"If my overall performance was better, we could have scored more goals. I could have brought more players into the game.

"I will take all the critics because I don't think I was the best and I could have done a lot better to help the team out."

Yussuf, a Tanzania international, joined Blackpool in the summer of 2019 following an impressive spell with Solihull Moors.

The 28-year-old scored 21 goals in 54 games for Moors in all competitions during the 2018-19 campaign, helping the Damson Park outfit finish runners-up behind champions Leyton Orient.

That earned Yussuf his switch to Blackpool but he found it difficult to break into the first team at the League One club and he had loan spells back at Solihull and with Boreham Wood during 2019-20.

Yussuf will spend this campaign with Wrexham and insists there is a lot more to come.

"I need to get back up to match fitness and I believe in time, I can offer more than just goals," he said.

"But it was my first game back, my first competitive 90 minutes I have played in eight or nine months so I don't want to be too harsh on myself because I am a positive guy.

"I believe that the hard work I put in is going to pay off so there is absolutely no doubt I am going to be better next time."

Yussuf will be looking to add to his tally when Wrexham travel to Solihull for Saturday's FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie and there will be no room for sentiment when he comes up against his former club.

"Hopefully we beat them," added Yussuf. "It is all about Wrexham.

"I left Solihull on good terms. We did well together that season and I got my move to Blackpool but I just hope we win because I am a Wrexham player now."
