WREXHAM are in the promotion mix but Dean Keates says his side did not accumulate as many points as he wanted in the first half of the National League campaign.

The Reds have reached the halfway mark in their season, taking 35 points from 22 matches.

Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over Woking leaves Wrexham unbeaten in six outings and up to sixth in the table heading into tomorrow’s clash against Aldershot at The Recreation Ground.

Keates is hoping to start the second half of the season with a win so that the Reds can start clawing back points that he hoped to already have on the board.

“With what’s happened regarding the pandemic, it is okay but could do better,” said Keates.

“We are not quite where we want to be but we will do our best to get to where we want to be in the second half of the season.

“We sat down at the beginning of the season and talked about our objectives and what we want to achieve, and where we want to be.

“We are not quite on the points where we want to be so the next batch of games, we have got to pick up some points and claw a few points back that we have not got.”

Keates is keeping his feet on the ground despite Wrexham sitting in the play-offs.

“I am not getting carried away,” said Keates. “All we can do is run our own race at our pace.

“We have broke it down and how we feel we can get the points that we need to get us where we want to be.

“We are just off track but we are accumulating points again now so we will just concentrate on ourselves.

“I am not too concerned about teams having games in hand because there’s going to be a point where it ends up catching up with teams.

“It’s alright having games in hand, we have got points on the board at the minute so we will go to Aldershot and do our best to get three points.”
