BOBBY GRANT has found opportunities limited under Bryan Hughes but the midfielder says his commitment to the cause cannot be questioned.

Grant, who made his loan move from Fleetwood Town permanent in January, was handed just his second start under Hughes against Braintree on Saturday and he opening the scoring as the Reds secured a much-needed 3-1 win.

It was Grant's second goal in Wrexham colours and he celebrated by cupping his hand to his ear, appearing to answer some of his critics.

But the 28-year-old insists he has taken it on the chin when not selected.

"I have been in the game long enough now to understand that decisions get made and it is out of my hands," said Grant.

"I am a player here and when I go on the pitch, I will try and do my best.

"If that is good enough then great; if it's not then we move on.

"I was delighted on Saturday, not just for myself but the whole team.

"I thought the performance was outstanding and we thoroughly deserved the win."

Grant, whose last start came in the 1-0 victory over Dagenham and Redbridge on February 9 - Hughes' first game as Reds boss - was pleased to get a goal but says picking up three points was the priority.

"It was nice to be back on the pitch and back in the team," said Grant.

"I should have done better with a header, I probably headed it too well, but I was delighted to get the goal and more importantly delighted to get the win.

"We worked very hard on the training pitch last week and it paid off."

Victory leaves fourth placed Wrexham four points behind leaders Salford City with four games remaining.

Grant refuses to rule Wrexham out of title contention and is looking for a strong finish to the season in case some of their rivals slip-up.

"We have to focus on ourselves," said Grant. "We just need to win the remaining games and if we can do that, then we will see where that puts us.

"We will just take it game by game. It is out of our hands but other teams will drop points and we have got to make sure we are there to capitalise.

"It is a massive stage of the season and there is everything to play for."

Grant insists Wrexham will be ready for the play-offs if they miss out on automatic promotion.

"Football is a very strange game," said Grant.

"Things change quickly as Wrexham have seen over the last few weeks.

"All you can do is do your best and if it is good enough come the end of the season, then great.

"If we don't go up automatically we will make sure we are in great shape ready for the play-offs.

"The play-offs are a great way to go up if you can do it but we need to focus on the here and now - the next four games and see where we are at the end of it."

Wrexham will aim to make it two wins in a row against in-form Barnet at The Hive on Saturday.

"We will go to Barnet full of confidence and go there to try and get the win," said Grant.

"Barnet is a tough place to go and they will be right up for it.

"But if we can get the basics right and work hard as a team, I am sure we will be okay."
