BRYAN HUGHES wants Wrexham’s players to be out of their comfort zone in order to make life more enjoyable for the club’s loyal supporters.

Hughes is trying to make games more comfortable for the fans to watch with one-goal wins a common theme in recent years.

“I don’t want us to be a team that is holding out for things come 4.30-4.45pm on a Saturday afternoon,” said the Reds boss.

“Hopefully, with the players we’ve got and the experience and quality, we can see games out a lot more easily than we did last season.

“In a blue sky world that would be lovely, but I’m sure there will be a lot more twists and turns over the next eight to 10 months.

“I don’t want the fans sitting on the edge of their seats like they have been and that’s why I’ve brought in the personnel I have.”

Hughes was appointed manager in February, helping Wrexham reach the play-offs, where they were beaten at the first hurdle by Eastleigh.

Despite ending a six-year wait for a play-off place, Hughes felt his team could have pushed themselves, especially with the title within reach for large parts of the campaign.

“We were always there or thereabouts last season, weren’t we?” said Hughes. “When we are performing to a high standard and we are there or thereabouts, I want us to try and go that little bit further, I want us to push ourselves. I don’t want us to get into a position where we are comfortable, I want us to keep challenging ourselves day in, day out.

“You learn from everything and I felt at times we got into that comfort zone and I want to keep pushing - not just in this league, but hopefully when we get out of it. We need to get out of it first and foremost.”
