DAN JARVIS has had to bide his time but the midfielder hopes he has done enough to be part of Phil Parkinson's plans going forward.

The 23-year-old made his first appearance of the season as Wrexham beat Marine 2-0 to progress to the first round of the FA Cup.

Jarvis gave a good account of himself and would love to get more game-time when the Reds return to National League action at Barnet on Saturday.

"I just enjoyed being back out there," said Jarvis. "Thanks to the gaffer for giving me my chance.

"It is natural to want to play but you have just got to keep your head down and keep going.

"It is a long season and you will get your chance at some point; you have just got to try and take it with both hands.

"I am pleased with a good night's work and will hopefully kick-on from here and get some more minutes under my belt.

"I would love to be involved at Barnet so hopefully I put a good performance in and I have put my name forward to be picked."

Parkinson switched to a 4-2-3-1 system for Tuesday's replay with Jarvis and Liam McAlinden operating on the flanks.

Jarvis, who came close to a first half goal, felt the role suited him.

"I had quite a lot of time and space to show what I could do," said Jarvis.

"Playing on the left or the right, I like coming in from the wing and it gives me time and space to try and create something.

"When you have got full-backs that want to bomb around the outside of you, it pulls people away and gives the likes of me and Liam McAlinden more time to turn and get our heads up."

Jarvis wants mid-table Wrexham to build on the victory.

"Hopefully we can use that performance to kick-on and try and get more points under our belt in the upcoming games," added Jarvis.

"We showed on Tuesday that we can play well, we played football and we looked dangerous going forward."
