Keates hoping for Holroyd boost
WREXHAM manager Dean Keates is hoping the return from injury of striker Chris Holroyd will improve his side’s firepower at home to struggling Guiseley today (3pm).
The ex-Macclesfield front man, who dislocated his shoulder while playing against his former club on the opening day of the season, was a second-half substitute in Tuesday night’s 0-0 Racecourse stalemate with Hartlepool United.
The result, hard on the heels of last weekend’s goalless draw at Torquay United, cost Wrexham the chance to go top of the National League, but Keates isn’t concerned just yet.
“Obviously it’s disappointing to have fired blanks in two successive games because it’s cost us maximum points,” he said.
“But we’ll be looking to rectify that by picking up all three points against Guiseley.
“There’s no need to panic at all because if you look at last Saturday at Torquay we were the more capable team and, on another day, we’d have taken our chances.
“Against Hartlepool we enough.”
Even though a fit Holroyd will provide Keates with a fresh option, the Dragons’ boss has not ruled out the prospect of adding further to his squad.
“We’re still looking,” added Keates. didn’t create
