ANTHONY JEFFERY can’t wait to show Wrexham fans what they’ve been missing.

The flying winger was back in the starting XI after injury - which coincided with Wrexham’s three-game losing run - as the Reds were held to a frustrating goal-less draw at home by Barnet.

Jeffrey was at the forefront of everything positive Wrexham did in attack, the winger giving Barnet right-back Alexander McQueen a torrid time.

But the 26-year-old insists that he’s only going to get better, saying: “It’s amazing to be back out there. We worked for eight weeks to get back playing and when I got the injury I was devastated because it was finally clicking for me.

“Getting back out there was amazing and to play 90 minutes was even better because I felt like I was getting stronger as the game went on.

“I feel like the best is coming from me and the goals and assists will come, I’ve just got to keep working hard.

“There’s more to come. I’m a bit rusty after just one day of training, but thankfully the gaffer trusted me enough to put me in and trust is a big thing for me - it will only get the best out of me.

“I was missing a goal or an assist, which is what I want to be doing, but it was nice to be out on the pitch with no injuries and coming off tired, but ready to go again on Saturday.”

Reds boss Dean Keates had planned to take Jeffrey out of the firing line around 70 minutes, but the Guyana international was vital to Wrexham’s chances of finding a late winner.

“I will run until I physically can’t run any more,” continued Jeffrey. “Even at the end I felt one more chance was going to come and I was surprised when it finished.”

And while Jeffrey was finding his feet after injury, the former Arsenal youngster was glad to help Wrexham end their losing run.

He said: “It’s difficult for us as players. I was saying today that it feels like we are 20 games in because of the time of year we started and there being no fans and it’s like ‘We are in a rut’, but we’ve only lost our last two league games.

“We were only one point outside the play-offs, but there is a lot of pressure on us to win every game and we want to win every game, but it was very important to stop the rot and we go again on Saturday.

“It was a tough game. These games aren’t easy and we came into it on the back of two big losses - losses which shouldn’t happen at our club - and now we’ve got a draw.

“We were missing the magic, but I think it was important we got back our work ethic and hunger, and to be fair, if there was going to be a team that won the game, it was going to be us. I think we were a bit unlucky not to win it, but the quality up front wasn’t the best.

“As a team we are more than focused to get back to winning ways.”

Next up for Wrexham is a home clash with Sutton United and Jeffrey believes he and his team-mates just need some luck in their quest to taste victory for the first time since winning 1-0 at Yeovil.

He said: “Barnet are a good team. They are missing players, we are missing players and it’s a tough time as a footballer with every game back-to-back.

“They are not a bad team by any means and on another day we win the game, it’s just unlucky and we will go again next game, and hopefully we get a bit of luck.

“You need a bit of luck to win games sometimes and at the moment we are not getting that.”
