BRYAN HUGHES wants to see a ruthless streak from his Wrexham players to kill off games after missed opportunities proved costly against Boreham Wood.

The Reds led 2-0 at Meadow Park on Tuesday with strikers Mark Harris and Bobby Grant on target either side of the break.

More chances went begging and the hosts scored two late goals, the second in added time, to snatch an unlikely point.

Although pleased with his side's performance in the 2-2 draw, Hughes felt Wrexham should have made the game safe when they were in such a commanding position.

"We had opportunities at 2-0 to make it three," said Hughes.

"I can’t be over critical of the players, we are finding them opportunities and that means we are getting into the right areas.

"But we need to be more ruthless when we get there, like we were on the two goals that we scored.

"A great bit of counter-attacking and pattern of play from the first one for Mark Harris and a lovely finish for Bobby Grant when James Jennings has won the ball back in midfield for the second, so I don’t want to be ultra critical.

"But I do want to get that ruthless streak into the players, especially in the final third."

Unbeaten Wrexham, who beat Barrow 2-1 on the opening day, are back on the road on Saturday when the Reds make their way to Dover Athletic for their longest away trip of the season.
