BRYAN HUGHES insists he won’t have a problem picking up his players when Wrexham head to Dover Athletic tomorrow.

Goals either side of the break from Mark Harris and Bobby Grant put the Reds 2-0 against Boreham Wood on Tuesday but the hosts struck twice late on to secure a 2-2 draw, with the equaliser coming in added time.

Wrexham, who came from behind to beat Barrow 2-1 on the opening day of the season, remain unbeaten going into the Crabble clash and Hughes feels his players will be ready for action despite their midweek disappointment.

“It is always hard, but we’ve got a strong group in there, mentally and physically, some strong characters which we saw on Saturday in the second half,” said Hughes.

“We have seen it in abundance for 75-80 minutes at Boreham Wood, it was just disappointing that we conceded the late two goals but these players know the objective of what we are trying to achieve this year.

“I am there as their guide to orchestrate it. I will be pushing them and lifting them mentally so we are ready for Dover.”

Hughes is happy with Wrexham’s points haul after two games and although disappointed not to beat Boreham Wood, he praised his side’s performance.

“Very pleased, it is a tough start, a tough week, and we haven’t finished it yet,” said Hughes.

“It was good character to come back against Barrow and on Tuesday overall I thought we were excellent at times, especially on the ball.

"It is heart breaking for the players, the fans, everyone who came to the game, but we will have to pick ourselves up now, we can’t rest on it.

"The performance was quite strong from us, we took the game to them, had some great opportunities, scored two really good goals and we could have had a few more. We are disappointed not to have picked up three points that we thoroughly deserved, but our away form last season wasn’t great; this would have gone a long way to rebuilding that, but we will take a point and move forward to Dover."
