DIOR ANGUS has vowed to repay the faith shown in him by manager Phil Parkinson after extending his stay at The Racecourse.

The striker joined Wrexham from Barrow on transfer deadline day last February, putting pen to paper on an 18 month deal, and the club has elected to take up the option to secure the 27-year-old striker’s services for anther season, keeping hin at The Racecourse until the end of the 2022-23 campaign.

Opportunities have been limited this season for Angus who has only made three starts and nine substitute appearances in the National League, scoring once in the 2-2 draw at Southend on September 4.

A knee injury and illness kept Angus out of action for nearly two months before making his comeback as a late replacement in Wrexham's 3-1 defeat at Notts County on January 2, but the frontman is focussed on playing his part in the promotion challenge.

"I am delighted, it is such a good place to be at the minute," said Angus.

"Hopefully we can achieve the end goal at the end of the season.

"I want to get out on the pitch more which is natural, and score some goals, and hopefully help the team towards it."

Angus, who scored six times in the second half of last season after joining Wrexham, is grateful that Parkinson sees him as part of his plans.

"I had the knee injury, then I wasn't very well and stuff," said Angus.

"It is not what I have been used to coming off the bench but I am getting used to it and the manager has shown faith in me which is appreciated, so I want to repay him now.

"It is nice that he has shown faith in me considering that I haven't played much of a part so it is time to keep doing my bit, work hard and hopefully get some goals.

"I always back myself to score goals given time so hopefully moving forward I get more goals."

Before his late appearance in Wrexham's defeat at County, Angus last featured for the first team when he came off the bench in the 5-0 win at Aldershot on November 9.

Angus got a hour's run-out in a practice match against Burton on Tuesday and he added: "When you haven't been playing and you have been injured, it was good to get out there and get some minutes under my belt," said Angus.

Wrexham, without a game last weekend, return to action against Folkstone Invicta in the fourth round of the FA Trophy tomorrow and Angus would love to be involved but he knows Parkinson has plenty of attacking options at his disposal.

"Hopefully. I am always ready anyway for whenever I am needed so we will go from there," added Angus.

"We have got a big squad and we have got a good squad as well. You have to understand that.

"When your opportunity comes, you try your best to take it."
