DEAN KEATES felt Wrexham should have won both of their Easter fixtures instead of suffering back to back defeats.

The Reds, beaten 1-0 by play-off rivals Notts County on Friday, returned to The Racecourse for yesterday's clash with title contenders Torquay United who scored the only goal in the third minute of injury time.

Some good chances went begging for Wrexham, with Jordan Davies twice hitting the woodwork, and Keates' side have dropped out of the top-seven following the two successive losses.

"It was another tough one to take," said Keates."It was a scrappy game, weather conditions played a part in that with the wind.

"But we hit the post, we hit the crossbar, we had one cleared off the line and their goalkeeper made the majority of the saves in the game.

"We got caught by the second phase of a long throw. It dropped down to their player who caught it on the turn."

Keates was in no doubt that Wrexham deserved something out of the clash with Torquay and feels his side should have maximum points from their Easter matches.

"We deserved at least a point out of it," said Keates. "Second half we were a little bit better with the ball.

"The quality wasn't always there but the amount of opportunities that we created, we should have been looking at three points.

"I am stood here talking about two 1-0 defeats when we should have been looking at six points.

"Today was scrappy but we did more than enough to get something out of the game. If we had got a point, I would have been disappointed not to get three."
