AARON HAYDEN insists it was always going to take time for new-look Wrexham to gel - but the centre-back admits the "bedding in period" is over and the Reds must starting winning more games.

Phil Parkinson made 10 new signings before the transfer window closed, with Hayden, Paul Mullin and Ben Tozer among the high profile additions, but the Reds endured an indifferent start to the season.

But with nearly a third of the campaign gone, Hayden says Wrexham should now be starting to click.

"We are a fresh team so it was going to take time for us to gel," said Hayden.

"I think we are starting to gel now. It is November now and it is time for us to start putting some results together.

"We have had our bedding in period the last few months to get to know each other and get to know how each other plays, is it about us putting results together now."

Hayden, who arrived from League Two side Carlisle, believes he has a lot more to offer.

"I still want more - never satisfied. I still need more clean sheets," said Hayden.

Hayden helped Wrexham keep a shut-out and he also scored at the other end as Parkinson's men beat Aldershot Town 5-0 on Tuesday to climb up to ninth in the National League.

The game was rearranged after the original fixture on October 2 was abandoned after 52 minutes with the Reds leading 2-0.

The defender was pleased Wrexham got the win they deserved in the first meeting and is looking to follow it up by getting another victory against lowly King's Lynn at The Walks tomorrow.

"It was good to get redemption after what happened last time with the postponement and we gave the fans five goals," said Hayden.

"It was a good team performance and we move onto Saturday now.

"We have got to give every team the same respect. Obviously King's Lynn are in the position they are in but it is important we go there, are professional and get our three points.

"It is important that we back this win up."

Hayden, who has started every game this season, was delighted to bag his second goal in Wrexham colours against the Shots but clean sheets come first.

"Our job is to keep clean sheets and to also try and chip in with goals," said Hayden.

"Harry Lennon and I have done that, and Reece Hall-Johnson from the defence, and we have got two more goals as well.

"I think it is really important that we all start chipping in with goals.

"Paul Mullin has been our main goalscorer this season but with him being out, people have taken on that responsibility of having to make up some goals.

"But the clean sheet is more important for me than goals because it gives us that platform to go and win games."

Nine-goal top scorer Mullin has completed a three game suspension and is available against the Linnets.

"Paul is a fantastic player and I can't wait to have him back," added Hayden.

"We have missed him - any team would miss him because he offers so much to the team."
