IT'S not a surprise that Phil Parkinson selected a thumping away win as his "special moment" so far as Wrexham manager.

The circumstances surrounding the 5-0 thrashing of Aldershot Town at The Recreation Ground on November 9 pleased the Reds' boss so much.

In early October, Wrexham were leading the Shots 2-0 when the clash was abandoned after 50 minutes because of a waterlogged pitch.

Parkinson felt the Hampshire outfit could have done more to ensure the game had a chance of continuing, but the Reds returned to the same venue for the rearranged fixture and picked up where they left off by securing a huge victory.

When asked what have been the highs and lows since he took charge on July 1, Parkinson said: "The Aldershot victory was a special moment for us because we had the controversy of the game getting abandoned the first time round.

"But I felt that night going back there, there was a real resilience about the team and no excuses were made.

"We went down there and got the job done, and that gave myself, the players and the rest of the staff great satisfaction."

Tuesday's 2-0 victory at Altrincham was Wrexham's sixth away league win in seven outings, and leaves the Reds third in the table.

Wrexham have only lost once at The Racecourse this season but scored just eight goals in nine outings, and Parkinson wants his side to be more ruthless in home matches when the promotion challenge continues in 2022.

"Some of the away performances have been excellent," said Parkinson, who saw his side triumph 6-2 at King's Lynn just four days after thrashing Aldershot.

"Some of the home performances, we haven't killed teams off and that is something we have got to look at.

"It is a two-fold situation; a bit of us not being ruthless and being clinical but also teams come here and have sat back and made it difficult, but results have generally been good.

"We have only lost once at home and away from home we have been free-scoring."

Parkinson added: "In general I think we have steadily improved.

"It was a tough pre-season as everybody knows for several reasons; piecing the squad together took time because we targeted some good players and those players are hard to get over the line in terms of transfer deals.

"I think the highlight has been the atmosphere at home games and the travelling support we have taken, and the way that the people of Wrexham have got behind the team."
