DEAN KEATES expects more games to be called off due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic after another Wrexham match failed to go ahead.

Tonight's clash with Eastleigh at The Silverlake Stadium has been postponed because someone in the Spitfires' camp has tested positive for Covid-19.

Saturday's home game against Dover on Saturday has also been called off for the same reason so the Reds will return to action at Weymouth next Tuesday.

Wrexham have lost their last two games, the latest coming when the Reds lost 3-1 at leaders Torquay on Saturday, and Keates was looking forward to trying to bounce back against Eastleigh.

"Unfortunately, these are the times that we are living in at the moment and you are always open to this," said Keates.

"It is always the possibility that games will be called off.

"We wanted to get a game in and get a response from the weekend but it has been taken out of our hands.

"You just hope that it is nothing too sinister down at Eastleigh for their sake."

Wrexham have had other matches postponed this season due to positive tests in the Reds' squad as well as their scheduled opponents.

"You end up not playing sometimes through no fault of your own because the opposition end up having coronavirus," said Keates.

"It was inside our camp a few weeks ago and it is in somebody else's now so our game has been called off."

Keates is hoping the latest postponement will give some players a chance to recover from knocks before Wrexham take on Weymouth at the Bob Lucas Stadium a week tonight.

"One or two players are carrying little niggles so it gives us a chance to settle them down," said Keates.

"Kwame Thomas went off with concussion at the weekend so by the time Weymouth comes around, he will be back with the group.

"It gives us another seven days before our next game so I am optimistic that I will have one or two more bodies back in the group by then."

Wrexham trailed 2-0 after just 17 minutes at Torquay but Theo Vassell immediately reduced the deficit.

Despite being on top in the second half, the Reds failed to score an equaliser and Torquay netted a third goal.

Keates was unhappy with the way his side started the game.

"On the back end of Altrincham where we felt we definitely deserved to get something out of the game with the clear cut chances that we had, we went to Torquay and did not start the game how we wanted to start the game," said Keates.

"We ended up starting the second half how we wanted to start the first half but it was a good reaction during the game.

"We went 2-0 down and got ourselves straight back into it at 2-1, and then we started the second half with a bit of momentum.

"We were pushing forward but in the build-up to their third goal, there was a blatant foul on Anthony Jeffrey and the referee was stood five yards away from it.

"One or two things that you need to fall in your favour didn't at the weekend."
