ELLIOT LEE was disappointed not to reward Wrexham's fantastic away following at Accrington Stanley with a better performance and result but the playmaker says defeat is not the end of the world.

The Reds produced a lack-lustre display and went down 2-0 as the 11-game unbeaten run came to an end in front of nearly 2,600 travelling supporters at The Crown Ground.

However, it was just a third loss in 18 League Two matches and Phil Parkinson’s men are fourth in the table, eight points behind leaders Stockport County.

Lee prefers to look at the bigger picture rather than dwell on the off-day heading into Saturday's clash with Morecambe at The STóK Cae Ras.

"We have won games playing worse than that, you just have to keep grinding and hope that something will drop for you and you get a chance because goals change games," said Lee, the Reds' leading scorer with 10 goals.

"Unfortunately, we just couldn't get one but it was not down to a lack of effort.

"The boys never stopped, they will always keep trying to get that goal.

"The away following was fantastic again so we are obviously disappointed to let everyone down but we are back at The Racecourse on Saturday and want to put it right.

"The fans will be back and they will be backing us all the way.

"That is the beauty of this football club, we are all together and it is such a family club.

"No-one is panicking, it is the third defeat of the season and we are just buzzing for Saturday."

Wrexham remain among the leading pack and Lee is in positive mood.

“You have to put things in perspective," he added.

"We have just been promoted last season and we have been on a great run.

"We all know the main goal but it was the third defeat of the season.

"We weren't at it but we will learn from it and the beauty of football is there is always always game around the corner when you can put things right.

"Roll on Morecambe. We will all be buzzing for that and we will be chomping at the bit this week.

"I know training will be buzzing, it always is after a defeat and the boys will want to put it right.

"There will be a lot of grit in training and we are all excited, we can't wait for Saturday."
