STEVE PARKIN described his players as "first class" as Wrexham continued their pre-season programme with another resounding win.

The Reds beat a mixed Fleetwood Town side 4-0 on Tuesday, just three days after clinching a 5-0 victory over Tamworth, with three strikers - two-goal Jake Hyde, Paul Mullin and Jordan Ponticelli - on target at Poolfoot Farm.

"I think the lads were good," assistant manager Parkin told the club's media team.

"We were grateful to Fleetwood for putting a competitive game on for us; they had a young team out with a little sprinkling of experience and we were probably a little bit more experienced than them.

"But you can only beat what is in front of you and I thought the lads' attitude was a continuation from Saturday and they were first class."

After drawing a blank in their opening friendly, a 1-0 defeat to Burnley under 23s, Wrexham have responded by scoring nine times in two outings and Parkin is pleased the players have been more clinical in the final third.

"We have worked in training, not necessarily doing specific drills, but just said to the boys when we get into the final third let's concentrate on a bit of quality," said Parkin.

"The balls that come into good areas, just real concentration in front of goal and they did that really well.

"They did it in training as well so it is no fluke, but there is still plenty of work to be done."

With manager Phil Parkinson isolating after testing positive for coronavirus, Parkin is likely to be in charge again when Wrexham head to National League North outfit Spennymoor on Saturday.

Despite hitting the goal trail and winning the last two matches, the Reds' number two feels there are areas to improve on.

"We need to look at a few things when we have not got the ball," said Parkin.

"Fleetwood were very good at keeping the ball, perhaps didn't hurt us but maybe we were a little bit deep at times.

"Going forward, some of the play was really good. We were quite decisive when we got in good areas so not too many problems there but it will be a different kind of test again."
