CAMERON GREEN is hoping he has done enough to keep his place in the Wrexham side against Aldershot Town tonight.

The left-back made his first start of the season in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Harrogate Town.

Restricted to just one brief substitute appearance in September's 3-1 defeat against Grimsby Town, Green has played a waiting game but is in no mood to relinquish the shirt after replacing Jamie Reckord for the FA Cup first round tie with League Two Harrogate.

"Everybody wants to play and sometimes it is really hard to take," said Green.

"It is just about trying to keep mentally strong and your chance will come.

"I got it on Saturday and when you get the chance to play, it is just about doing the best you can and keep the shirt so hopefully I can do that.

"I feel like I can influence the game a bit more offensively, that is definitely my strength.

"It was more of a defensive role on Saturday and holding our shape but I feel there is plenty more to come from me."

Jordan Ponticelli gave Wrexham a half-time lead but Harrogate scored twice in six minutes after the break to progress in the cup, and Green felt the Reds deserved something out of the game.

"It was unfortunate we didn't get the win because I think we deserved it," said Green.

"They didn't trouble us at times and we felt very strong in our shape.

"I know people keep saying they are a League Two side but I don't think there was much difference.

"We might have been the underdog but we are all gutted that we didn't win because we were more than good enough to win.

"It is really tough to take but we gave a good account of ourselves."
