PLAYER-MANAGER Andy Morrell is not planning to make wholesale changes for Wrexham’s clash against Ebbsfleet United tomorrow.
Although not happy with aspects of his side’s performance at Macclesfield in midweek, Morrell, who is able to call on midfielder Glen Little, refuses to get carried away in the wake of a first defeat of the campaign.
“I don’t think we need to change it,” said Morrell. “We will have see how the lads are in training and see if they are feeling it a bit because it is straight into three games in a week.
“Whether we change it or not is another matter but there won’t be mass changes.
“It was two set-pieces, it wasn’t like we’d just been battered and bruised, and cut open at every opportunity. We did alright so let’s not get carried away just yet, stick to our guns, play the way that we play and get on with it.”
But whoever he selects, Morrell wants Wrexham to make the most of the opportunities they get in front of goal by testing the goalkeeper more often.
“We have had a look at a couple of things, showed them the chances we had,” said Morrell. “Some of the football we played at times was good, we cut them open and we created some good chances.
“But we have not made the goalkeeper work so we have got to do that.
“We have gone over the goals and a couple of the chances that Macclesfield had, which weren't many really, where we can improve and hopefully they won't happen again. We can be better with everything.”
Victory would give Wrexham six points from a possible nine after a gruelling first week of the campaign, a tally Morrell would be satisfied with, but he knows Ebbsfleet will be no pushovers.
“You look at our first week and it is a good home game and two tough away games,” added Morrell. “If we can come out with two wins out of three I would be happy but it is going to be really tough, they are not a bad team.
“We will have to be right at it if we are going to get anything. If we work hard, are switched on and focussed, we have got a chance of bringing back three points.”
