Manny Smith is proud of Wrexham’s excellent defensive record but insists it counts for little if the Reds don’t achieve anything this season.

Wrexham have leaked the fewest goals in the National League with Dean Keates’ side only conceding eight times in the opening 15 games.

That superb record has helped Wrexham emerge as one of the front-runners with the fifth placed Reds currently three points behind leaders Macclesfield Town.

Smith stressed the importance of Wrexham continuing to be defensively stubborn and have something to show for their efforts come the end of the season.

“That record is special when you are a defender,” said Smith, who has formed an impressive partnership at the heart of defence alongside captain Shaun Pearson.

“Everyone knows their jobs and we thrive on our clean sheets and performances at the back.

“It is good but you want something to top it off. There is no point having the best defence and we finish mid-table.”
