THE National League table makes false reading with teams playing a different number of games but Jay Harris admits Wrexham need points on the board to make it easier on the eye.

Matches have been regularly called off because of the coronavirus pandemic and bottom of the table Dover Athletic, who visit The Racecourse on Saturday, have only fulfilled 11 fixtures - seven less than high-flying Altrincham.

Wrexham have played 14 times but without a game so far in 2021 due to postponements, the Reds have dropped to 16th position, three points away from the play-offs.

Midfielder Harris says Dean Keates' side just need to start taking care of their own business when they are in action.

"We are below mid-table with games in hand," said Harris.

"If you put your points on the board then you are up there, if you don't put your points on the board then you are down there.

"It looks disastrous but Dover are bottom of the table with seven games in hand and other teams with no games in hand.

"If Dover win those games, you never know where they could be.

"Until the table levels itself out and everyone is on the same amount of games, you are not going to know where you are at.

"I don't think you can look at the table at the minute, you have just got to gauge yourself on performances and results.

"But where we are at the minute, we need points on the board more than anything so you are looking to your next game to put points on the board."

Wrexham, spending a 13th season in non-league, might not appear to be promotion contenders but Harris won't throw in the towel with only a third of the season gone.

"I don't think you can dismiss it," said Harris.

"We can get into the play-offs with a couple of wins from our games in hand.

"If we are going to have additions in January which the gaffer has mentioned he has been given a bit of money to add the right players, if you add the right players then who knows.

"But as a group of players and staff, we want to get promotion and although we haven't had the greatest start, it is how you finish not how you start."
