JORDAN DAVIES can see a huge difference in the Wrexham team that struggled at the start of the season and the Reds’ side that is challenging for a play-off spot with five games to go.

Dean Keates’ side go into tomorrow’s clash against Yeovil at The Racecourse sitting sixth in the National League and Wrexham’s destiny in their own hands.

Although he knows there is still work to be done to secure a top-seven finish, Davies, who returned to his hometown club for a second spell in the summer after leaving Brighton and Hove Albion, is happy with the position Wrexham are in at such a crucial stage of the campaign.

“I just take it game by game and see where we are after that next game,” said Davies, who hails from Coedpoeth.

“All we can do is take it one game at a time.

“We are right in there and I think if you’d have said to the lads at the start of the season it is in your hands with five games to go, people would have snatched your hands off.

“We are looking forward to getting out there and getting three more points against Yeovil.”

Wrexham, unbeaten in the last five games, are in the promotion mix and Davies believes a lot of progress has been made in the second half of the season.

“We had a wobble at the start of the season but after Christmas, we are a different side,” said Davies.

“We are playing some good stuff, we know what suits us and we know what to do.

“We have just got to keep going and hopefully we get our rewards at the end of the season and we are in the play-offs, and anything can happen then in the play-offs.”

Wrexham had to come from two-nil down at half-time against Maidenhead United at York Road to draw 2-2 and continue the unbeaten run on Monday.

But despite being behind at the break - Sam Barratt opened the scoring the Magpies with a wonder strike from his own half - Davies was confident the Reds could get something out of the game.

“We started off really well and were on top of them,” said Davies.

“We played some really good stuff and implemented our game-plan really well.

“Before they scored that first goal we were certainly the better side and all over them.

“It was a great strike from the lad; you just have to hold your hands up and say wow, what a goal.

“The second goal was a real sucker punch, we just had to regroup and have the belief that we could get back into the game.”

Davies reduced the deficit early in the second half and set-up substitute Dior Angus for the equaliser as Wrexham secured a point on the back of Saturday’s 2-1 home win over Solihull Moors.

“We knew if we could get one early enough, we would get another,” said Davies.

“Whether we could get a third, you never know, but we got a draw and it was a good point.

“I think it was a point gained rather than two points dropped after being two-nil down at half-time.

“We will take it, that is four points from the two games over the Bank Holiday and get ready for Yeovil now.”

Davies will be looking to continue his rich vein of goalscoring form against the 16th placed Glovers.

After opening his account for Wrexham in the 3-0 win over play-off rivals Bromley on March 27, Davies has gone on to score six goals in his last nine games.

That run of form included a superb hat-trick in the 4-0 thrashing of Halifax - another side in the promotion picture - last month at The Shay.

The 22-year-old went close to scoring more than once against Maidenhead and admits he should have had more than one goal to show for his efforts.

“I should have scored more than once to be honest with you but we move on,” said Davies.

“I was happy to assist Dior when he came on.

“I played him through and he took it really well, it was a great finish.”
