‘The Worst We’ve Played’ Says Dragons’ Manager Sam

Sam Ricketts was fed up after Wrexham’s goalless Vanarama National League draw at Barrow.

“That’s the worst we’ve played,” said the Dragons manager. “I’m really disappointed.

“We never got going, never imposed ourselves, didn’t do the basics of how we play particularly well. A frustrating night, but we kept another clean sheet.

“There’s nothing to worry about. We go through phases and this was a Tuesday night when we just weren’t at our best.”

Wrexham remain third in the table after a match in which scoring chances were at a premium on a blustery night at Holker Street.

Wrexham manager Sam Ricketts talks to the media.

Goalkeeper Rob Lainton has played in every Wrexham match this season and kept a 15th clean sheet of the season, while they almost won it when Fleetwood loanee Bobby Grant headed on to a post on his debut

Grant caught the eye with his performance and that was a positive on a night when Wrexham were below their best, but returned from Barrow with a hard-earned point.

Wrexham now focus on their Emirates FA Cup tie at the Racecourse on Saturday (8pm kick-off).
