LEIGHTON MCINTOSH admits Wrexham need to quickly get back to winning ways - and the striker doesn't care how they do it.

Two poorly defended goals left the Reds 2-0 down at the break against Stockport on Saturday and although Bryan Hughes' side had all the play in the second half, McIntosh's first goal for the club was merely a consolation.

It means Wrexham, 16th in the National League and 12 points behind leaders Woking, have lost their last two games and are winless in four outings, and McIntosh knows a victory is desperately needed by any means against Maidenhead tomorrow at The Racecourse.

"We need that win, regardless of how we get it," said McIntosh.

"We do need them three points and we have got the quality to get them three points.

"We just need to keep grinding away and I believe once we get that good result, then they will start to follow.

"It is a good squad of players and we should be higher than where we are.

"I am sure the results will start to fall our way. I do think we will hit that run of form, I really believe that.

"With these bad results, all we can do is learn from it and try and rectify that throughout the season; just be more solid and streetwise when it comes to games and different situations."

McIntosh, a summer signing from Scottish League One side Airdrie, came on as substitute against Stockport and his late goal gave Wrexham hope.

Although delighted to get off the mark after rounding the goalkeeper and scoring from an acute angle, McIntosh says it was bittersweet with Wrexham losing.

"It was a good ball by Luke Summerfield," said McIntosh.

"The gaffer just said try and get in behind, turn and make runs into the channels, and I saw the goalkeeper come out.

"I managed to get a good touch on it, saw the angle, went for it and luckily it went in off the post.

"It was good to get the goal but a bit bittersweet with the result. It is always good to get goals as a striker for confidence and hopefully I keep adding them goals, and we get on the right end of the results."

McIntosh, who has only started one of the opening eight games, is hoping to continue impressing so he gets more chances.

"It has been a little bit frustrating, being in and out, coming on and only having that small window to prove yourself," said McIntosh.

"I am just glad I got that goal.

"I am new to this league so I have just got to keep showing what I can do."

Hughes felt trailing 2-0 was harsh on Wrexham but he was pleased with the response and remains focussed on reviving the Reds' fortunes.

"Did we deserve to be 2-0 down? Probably not but we found ourselves 2-0 down and we had to react," said Hughes.

"We had to get the belief back into them at half-time. Even as a group at half-time, we couldn't believe that we were 2-0 down because we felt that we were on top.

"But these are situations that we are getting ourselves into and we have to try and come through these.

"We have got to have belief.

"The players and management team are all down, we don't want to lose games; we are going out there to try and win games.

"Certain situations are going against us at the moment but we have to give them the belief, really rally them and try and put it right.

"We are really determined to do that."
