JAMES JONES’ move is turning out to be everything he thought it would be but the midfielder is not content with Wrexham’s position in the National League.

The 25-year-old has started all seven games since arriving at The Racecourse from League One outfit Lincoln City in August.

Phil Parkinson’s side have picked up three wins and three draws but there was a second defeat of the season as Wrexham went down 2-1 at Stockport County.

Now ninth in the table heading into Saturday’s clash at lowly Aldershot Town, Jones is loving life in north Wales but he knows results can improve.

“I am really enjoying it so far,” said Jones, who joined after the opening day draw at Solihull.

“Obviously everyone knows the story going on here and that was a big part of the season why I signed.

“Training has been good, the lads and staff have been great with me and playing in front 8,000-plus fans at home and even taking a good following to the away games, everything about it so far has been good.

“Obviously I want to try and pick up some more points and keep climbing the table but the structure of the club is really good.”

Wrexham made the ideal start against Stockport with Paul Mullin opening the scoring in the first half.

Not for the first time this season, the Reds lost their way after the interval with County equalising before grabbing a late winner.

Jones admits Wrexham did not show the same battling qualities like in other games this season and he is looking for an immediate response against the third-bottom Shots.

“We were all disappointed - personally and as team - with the way things happened in the second half,” said Jones.

“We have dug in at times in games when we have not been playing at our best but we didn’t do that on Saturday.

“We have to make sure we put that right this weekend and get picking up points again.

“You are going to get setbacks throughout the season. It is a long season and we are not going to win every game but we have to make sure when we do have these setbacks that we react in the right way.”

Jones admits coming out on top in the midfield battles over the course of a full game and not just for 45 minutes will help Wrexham pick up more wins.

“We want to win that midfield battle, not just for a half but for a full game,” said Jones.

“We will make sure that we give ourselves the best chance of winning games if we can win that battle in there, and take the sting out of the game at the right times by keeping the ball or knowing when to put it in behind.

“We have got to get that balance right and make sure that we put a 90-minute performance in, and pick up the three points.”
