PHIL PARKINSON felt Wrexham created enough chances to win the game despite producing a "patchy display" against Wealdstone.

Wrexham went into the National League fixture having scored 11 goals in successive away wins at Kings Lynn and Aldershot but the Reds drew a blank on their return to The Racecourse as they were held to a goalless draw by the Stones.

Despite producing a below par performance, Wrexham had the better of the scoring opportunities but visiting goalkeeper George Wickens kept his side in the game with a number of crucial first half saves and Parkinson felt it could have been a different story if his side had been able to break the deadlock.

"In terms of gilt edged chances, the keeper has made a couple of good saves," said Parkinson, who saw his side fail to score in a game for the first time this season.

"We had some moments where we know we could have done better so we created the chances.

"Everybody knows in a tight game that first goal is so important and we couldn't find it today unfortunately.

"There wasn't a lack of effort from the players, I think there was probably a bit of frustration built up with the lads at times on the pitch and when the quality wasn't there we tried to force the play, and that is what we wanted to steer away from.

"Within that patchy display, we have still had the key moments to win the game."

Wrexham remain unbeaten at home this season but the Reds have been far from convincing in front of bumper Racecourse crowds.

Having registered big victories during the last two away matches - ninth placed Wrexham are back on the road at high-flying Halifax Town tomorrow night - Parkinson insists the aim was to take control from the start against Wealdstone.

"We have gone away from home and said let's play like the home team and be really positive in our closing down etc," said Parkinson.

"We set up with the same mentality and the same approach, trying to get control in the game.

"We spoke with the lads after the Torquay game where it became a very scrappy affair that home or away, it is up to us to get control of the game with the ball and since the Aldershot game we have done that really well.

"That was the aim today and at times we did it well; we passed it well and we switched the play well.

"There probably wasn't enough of that type of quality within the game but of course we need to look at it closely and say 'what do we need to do to get us off and running at home'."
