IT would have been some way to open his Wrexham account but midfielder George Evans feels his first Reds' goal is coming.

Evans has made 17 appearances since arriving at The Racecourse from Millwall before the summer transfer window closed but although he has been a presence in front of the defence, has also got into good positions at the other end of the pitch but is yet to get off the mark.

He came close late in the first-half of Tuesday's 2-2 draw at Harrogate in League Two when his 30-yard strike on the volley hit the post.

That would have been a spectacular way to register goal number one for Wrexham but the 28-year-old is confident it will arrive soon.

"I just need a bit of luck to drop and get that first goal," said Evans. 

"I hit that one as well as I could have, you put that half-a-yard inside and it goes in.

"It is fine margins and it is frustrating that it hasn't gone in; that could have won us the game, fine margins like that do matter.

"It is disappointing that it hasn't gone in but hopefully the next one goes in. I feel like it is coming."

Andy Cannon and top scorer Elliot Lee, with his 11th goal of the season, put Wrexham 2-0 up but Harrogate reduced the deficit just before the break and levelled 90 seconds into the second half to secure a share of the spoils.

That was Cannon's first strike for Wrexham since joining from Hull City nearly a year ago and although Lee has been far more prolific since his arrival, Evans stressed the importance of the midfielders contributing with goals.

"The more goals we can chip in with to help the team the better," added Evans.

On failing to win after going two-nil up, Evans said: "It is frustrating. 

"We have really got to see that out after starting like that in the first half.

"The goal after the restart gave them a lift but we still had a lot of time in the game to go and get another goal.

"After a good first half, it is disappointing that we couldn't do that and get three points."
