POINTS mean more than goals to Paul Mullin.

The striker, who joined Wrexham from newly promoted League One side Cambridge United in the summer for an undisclosed fee, grabbed his third goal of the campaign with a spectacular strike in Saturday's 1-0 win over leaders Dagenham and Redbridge at The Racecourse.

It was the perfect response to a first defeat of the National League after losing 3-1 at Grimsby Town in midweek and leaves seventh placed Wrexham with 12 points from a possible 21.

Although he has made a big impact in the final third since his arrival - Mullin missed the 2-2 draw with Southend through injury - results come first for the frontman.

"I have played six of the seven games and come away with three goals and two assists," said Mullin.

"That is not a bad start for me but ultimately I want points and we need to get more points than we have done at the start of the season.

"But I think as the team is gelling together and getting to know each other a bit better, it can only get better from here."

Mullin's goal sealed victory against Dagenham with the striker finding the top corner with a curling shot from just outside the area which left goalkeeper Elliot Justham rooted to the spot.

“James Jones found me in the hole, a nice pocket of space, as soon as I took a touch I knew what I was going to do,” added Mullin.

“Thankfully it managed to go in the goal.

"Last year I scored an array of different types of goals - free-kicks, penalties, headers, right foot, left foot, from range and from close range.

"Part of my game is I like to try and get shots away and try to get on the end of things, and thankfully I managed to put one away."

Mullin is joint leading scorer with Jake Hyde who missed the Daggers win through injury.

"Hopefully one of us can keep scoring every week and we keep winning games," added Mullin.
