PAUL MULLIN has opened his Wrexham account but the striker wouldn't have been bothered if he'd gone through pre-season without scoring for his new club.

The 26-year-old is up and running after finding the net in Tuesday's 4-0 win against a mixed Fleetwood Town team at Poolfoot Farm.

But all that Mullin cares about is making sure he is in the goals when the Reds kick-off a 14th campaign in non-league at home to Yeovil Town on Saturday August 21.

"I don't really like scoring goals in pre-season to be honest because I think you are wasting them," said Mullin.

"I don't really care about scoring in pre-season because I feel like the goals are used up.

"To score a goal was obviously nice and get your eye back in, and it was a good day."

Mullin joined Wrexham after scoring 32 goals in 46 games to help Cambridge clinch promotion from League Two last term.

All this came after the prolific frontman failed to score for the U's in pre-season.

"Last year I went through the whole of pre-season without scoring a goal and it didn't really bother me," said Mullin, who was named League Two Player of the Year following his exploits in 2020-21.

"Getting ready for the first game is all that really matters."

Mullin has provided assists in the last two games, also hitting the crossbar in Saturday's 5-0 win at Tamworth when Wrexham supporters saw their side in action for the first time since March 2020.

Although he couldn't care less about scoring goals in friendlies, Mullin is keen to show fans what he is capable of.

"It was nice to have the fans back in on Saturday," said Mullin, who will get another run-out when Wrexham visit National League North side Spennymoor Town tomorrow.

"It was great to see them and to show them how I play; they can get used to me playing for them.

"It was a good sign of things to come and hopefully we can build on these last two games which have been good results for us.

"There is another game at the weekend and then we can go into the season raring to go and everyone fully fit which is the most important thing."
