JAKE HYDE has made a good start to his Wrexham career but the striker won’t rest on his laurels and feels he can get “better and better”.

The 31-year-old, brought in from Halifax Town during the summer, scored three goals in the opening six games of the National League season before a hamstring injury stopped him in his tracks.

After sitting out the last two matches, Hyde is set to return when Phil Parkinson’s side face lowly Aldershot Town at The Recreation Ground tomorrow and he is looking to pick up where he left off.

“Every step back is frustrating,” said Hyde.

“You want to just keep pushing on and moving forward, and progressing from there.

“Finding your feet at a new club is really important; you are still building relationships and finding different bits.

“It has been a good start but I am hoping to snowball and keep going, and get better and better; that is the partnership, across the park, as a team - everything.

“It was a good start for me but I am ready to kick on again.

“That little stop is frustrating but they happen, that is football and hopefully it has not cost me too much time.

“I will try and build up my fitness and sharpness as much as I can this week, and be as ready as I can be for Saturday, and look forward from there.”

Wrexham go into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Stockport County who turned things around after leading scorer Paul Mullin gave the Reds a first minute lead with his fourth strike of the season.

Although he isn’t taking the third bottom Shots lightly, Hyde stressed the importance of making an immediate response.

“Anybody can beat anybody in this league,” added Hyde.

“We need a reaction from Saturday. We know Saturday wasn’t up to our standards and it is an opportunity to put it right.”

Parkinson is delighted that Hyde is set to make his return and add to his attacking options.

"Hydey has got three goals and he is a cool finisher but there is competition up there," said Parkinson, who could also have midfielder Jordan Davies available after a calf injury.

"But obviously Hydey gives us something different with his hold-up skills and his movement and cleverness in and around the opposition penalty box."
