GOALS don't always win games but Bryan Hughes hailed his side's recent record of scoring in every game.

Devonte Redmond equalised to earn the Reds a 1-1 draw at Notts County on Sunday and it means Hughes' side have scored in 11 consecutive league games, excluding the play-offs.

That is Wrexham's best run since they also found the back of the net 11 league games running between September and December 2015 under Gary Mills.

Hughes, hoping to extend the sequence to 12 games when Wrexham face Barnet at The Racecourse this afternoon, feels his side are more of a goal threat this season.

"Even from last season when I first come to the club, the majority of the games I have been in charge of we have scored in every game," said Hughes.

"There was Leyton Orient and obviously the Eastleigh game.

"We do look a goal threat and I am trying to implement that on the training ground; I want us to get into areas of the pitch where we can hurt teams, and I think we have shown that this year especially.

"The personnel that we have brought to the club is aiding that and it is good to get Devonte on the scoresheet, he has been getting assists but that will do his confidence a world of good."

Hughes, who has used a 4-2-3-1 system in the opening five league games, has seen four of his frontmen - Redmond, Mark Harris, Bobby Grant and JJ Hooper - open their accounts for the season after Wrexham came from behind to draw at Notts County.

"We didn't go back on the back foot, we went straight back on the front run and showed the character that we have done in numerous games already this season to bounce back like we did against Barrow," said Hughes.

"Devonte's goal was a fantastic goal. Jazzi driving forward from full-back, slipping it through to Devonte, a couple of touches and he puts one in the top corner.

"From my point of view, that is all the front four in the goals now and assists.

"It just adds to that confidence building and hopefully we can take it forward."

Hughes feels Redmond, who arrived at The Racecourse in the summer after turning down the offer of a new deal at Salford City, is showing why he is so highly rated.

Redmond, playing in the number 10 role behind striker Hooper, is yet to complete 90 minutes this season but has weighed in with two assists as well as his goal at Meadow Lane.

"He is building that fitness up," said Hughes.

"It is a demanding role that I am asking him to play just off JJ in that number 10 role and he can do it.

"He is a clever player, that is why he is at our club but I think the injury he sustained in the middle of pre-season just knocked his fitness levels slightly and he missed a bit of game-time.

"But now he is starting to get back, he is getting later and later in games and it is only a matter of time before he completes 90 minutes, and we will keep seeing the best of him."

Akil Wright was named in the squad for the first team this season, the midfielder appearing as a late substitute after recovering from a virus that kept him out of the first four games.

Hughes was delighted to welcome Wright back to the fold.

"Akil has been off with his illness and it was good to have him back amongst the squad," said Hughes.

"He had a real strong pre-season but unfortunately his virus hit him at the wrong time the night before the kick-off.

"It was good to get him some minutes, he came on and just gave us a little impetus in the middle of the park.

"Luke Summerfield and Luke Young have played every minute of every game so I just wanted to give one of them a rest. It was Youngy and Akil came on."
