IN-FORM Wrexham have got another big game today against Notts County and Jordan Davies is hungry for more goals after opening his account for his home-town club.

The Reds go into this afternoon’s clash with play-off rivals County sitting one place above the Magpies in fifth position after losing just once in the last 14 outings.

The latest win came last Saturday when Dean Keates’ men triumphed 3-0 over Bromley - another side challenging for a top-seven berth.

Davies, who hails from Coedpoeth and returned to The Racecourse in the summer after leaving Brighton and Hove Albion, scored his first Wrexham goal in his 25th league appearance of the season after heading home Luke Young’s corner to put the Reds 1-0 up.

To say he was delighted to get off the mark is an understatement.

“I have had a few changes in position this season and a few games down the line, I have nicked one at the front post with a header from a corner so happy days,” said Davies. “As you could see from the celebrations, it meant a lot to me. I was buzzing.”

The goal was initially credited to leading scorer Kwame Thomas but there was no doubt in the end who the marksmen was.

“As I celebrated, Kwame said to me: ‘I have headed you, it is not me’,” said Davies.

“I didn’t know because I didn’t even see it hit the net. I celebrated and just got on with the game but it was cleared up.”

Academy graduate Davies was seen as a left-back when he joined Brighton in January 2017.

Davies played in more advanced roles for the Seagulls under 23s side but he has played in a number of different positions this season for Wrexham.

Operating just behind the front two against Bromley, Davies feels it is a role that suits him and the 22-year-old hopes it leads to more goals to help Wrexham in their promotion push.

“One thing that has been missing from myself this season has been goals,” said Davies. “I played higher up in the number 10 position against Bromley so hopefully I can get a little run in there and add some more goals to the tally.”

Davies admits it was important to pick up victory over play-off rivals Bromley on the back of Wrexham losing three points the previous day.

Dover’s results have been expunged as the Whites have refused to play matches because of a row over finding to help clubs survive the coronavirus pandemic so the Reds’ 3-1 win in January won’t count.

“It was such a big game for us,” said Davies. “We knew that we could push Bromley away from us with a win and cement ourselves in the play-offs even more.

“I am really happy to get a big goal in a big game and to kick-off a 3-0 win.”

Wrexham, back in action following an 11 day break, made a slow start before things clicked, with Dior Angus scoring two stunning goals to wrap up victory.

“It is quite normal once you have had a big lay-off,” added Davies.

“A few things didn’t go our way at the start but we bounced back and we came out on top for large periods of the game. I think we dominated after the first 20 minutes and it was a really important result for us.”

Davies is looking for Wrexham to continue the rich vein of form against a County side who are in a bit of a slump.

The Magpies sacked Neal Ardley last week but new manager Ian Burchnall's poor start to life in the hot-seat continued after he watched his new team lose 1-0 at home to Aldershot on Tuesday. They also lost their FA Trophy semi-final to Hornchurch on penalties.

“We moved back up to fifth position and back above Notts County,” said Davies.

“Hopefully we can go there, keep them below us and keep pushing on until the end of the season.

“We are looking good, we just need to keep the momentum going and get into the play-offs.”

Wrexham, who have played two games more than County, continue their Easter schedule at home to third placed Torquay on Monday.

The Reds also welcome Stockport County, who sit fourth, to The Racecourse next Saturday and Davies is looking for more home comforts.

"If you look at our home form this season, it has been top notch," added Davies.

"The Racecourse is a difficult place to go with or without fans - and I know fans will make that even harder.

"When big teams come here, we have got to put our game onto them and show them that we are here for the fight."
