Andy Davies is confident Wrexham have taken major steps forward in their bid to regain their place in the Football League, but admits a lack of killer instinct in front of goal has ultimately been their Achilles heel.
Wrexham brought the curtain down on a season in which they missed out on the play-offs for a fifth time in succession with a 0-0 draw at home with an AFC Fylde who finished just inside the top seven. It has been a disastrous end to a campaign with promised so much for fans, the Dragons twice top of the standings, while also setting a new club record for clean sheets, Davies’ charges picking up just seven points from possible 27 since the departure of previous manager Dean Keates last month.
Davies was Keates’ assistant and took over as manager until the end of the season following the midlander’s exit to League One side Walsall. And the boss is confident Wrexham have made progress in the 18-months since the duo took charge at the Racecourse following the sacking of then manager Gary Mills.
“It is about making improvements,” said Davies. “When me and Dean came in 18 months ago it was about stabilising what we had here.
“Have we made improvements this season? Yes, there have been improvements, so there is a foundation to move on next season and if the new manager can add to that and improve on the points total from this season there is no reason why this football club and this support base that we have got, cannot achieve the promotion that we all want.”
