DEAN KEATES wants to make home advantage count as Wrexham look forward to a run of fixtures at The Racecourse.

Five of the Reds' next seven National League matches during a congested February are back on their own territory, starting with tomorrow's visit of Dagenham and Redbridge.

With Wrexham playing six of their last eight league games away from home - the latest a 1-1 draw at Eastleigh on Tuesday - Keates is looking to make the most of being back at The Racecourse.

"It will be a hard game against Dagenham but every game is a hard game," said Keates.

"We are at home and if we get three points, we have backed up two good performances away from home where we have got four points.

"We have had loads of away games but we have got a run of games at home now.

"There are no fans but we have to make home advantage count as much as we can for us, and pick up three points."

Keates was disappointed Wrexham don't go into the game on the back of two successive away wins.

Having beaten King's Lynn 2-0 on Saturday, Kwame Thomas gave the Reds the lead against the run of play at Eastleigh in first half stoppage time.

But the Spitfires equalised following a controversial penalty and Keates, who saw Wrexham end the game with 10 men following the dismissal of debutant Tyler French, says his side were "robbed" because of poor decisions by referee Sunny Gill.

"To a man we stood up and got counted but what's gone on is not in our control," said Keates.

"I am devastated for the players. They gave it absolutely everything on a poor surface.

"We have been robbed, simple as that. To have that go against us second half is an absolute embarrassment.

"We should be going into a home game on the back end of six points from two away games."
