Dean Keates bemoaned the lack of a ruthless edge to his Wrexham side as they were held to a goalless draw at home against fellow National League strugglers Eastleigh, but hit out at a key moment in proceedings that went against the Dragons.

It was a frustrating afternoon for the Dragons as they fought out a 0-0 draw at the Racecourse against an Eastleigh side who Keates felt had set themselves up for at least a share of the spoils.

Keates stated his players had been wasteful with the few chances they fashioned, while he was also irritated by a number who had simply failed to register a shot at all when in good positions.

However, the Dragons boss was also left to rue what he felt was a perfectly good goal for his side being ruled out, Jordan Ponticelli heading home from Davis Keillor-Dunn’s cross only to see the linesman’s flag raised.

It comes a week after Keates was critical of the officiating in his side’s 3-0 loss at Yeovil Town.

“It was a frustrating afternoon,” said Keates.

“We had a lot of possession, for long periods of play we were camped in their half but we weren’t ruthless enough with our final pass or final effort on target.”
