Boss on Wrexham stalemate

John Still was a happy man after his side held title-chasing Wrexham to a goalless draw at the Racecourse.

In an even 90 minutes in North Wales the Hatters could have snatched all three points after missing a number of good chances.

But after Tuesday night's poor result against Hyde the manager was full of praise for his team's display against a Dragons side gunning for promotion.

"As I keep saying we've got to get the foundations right and organisation is key," Still told Hatters Player afterwards. "Today we had organisation in abundance.

"I thought it was a very good, determined and professional performance, not without some proper goalscoring opportunities. A draw was a fair result."

Still made five changes to the side that lost to Hyde with Ronnie Henry and Andre Gray two of those players missing.

"Ronnie's been ill and we've rest Gray," confirmed the manager. "I need to see everybody in the squad before the end of the season without disrupting the team too much.

"That will continue between now and the rest of the season. The magic question is do we have the players here to get us out of this league?"

With Wrexham flying high in pursuit of promotion the point - and the clean sheet in particular - were real positives for Still to take home.

"It does look as though we can restrict teams," he said. "Although we lost on Tuesday that came from a penalty.

"We have to be able to restrict teams on a consistent basis. Once we can do that we can start looking at other aspects of  our game."

Video from John Still, Simon Ainge and Lathaniel Rowe-Turner will be uploaded to Hatters Player in the next 24 hours.
