Paul Rutherford wants to be on the scoresheet more often next season and he believes some of his Wrexham team-mates will also demand a better goal return from themselves.

Although Wrexham challenged for promotion last term they were one of the lowest scorers in the division, the Reds only finding the back of the net 49 times in 46 National League outings.

Rutherford got two of them, the same tally in the 2016-17 campaign, although he did supply a double figure number of assists.

Proud of that statistic, Rutherford admits he should score more goals but says his fellow Reds will also feel they can do better in that department.

“I did get a lot of assists but this season I would like to have a few goals,” said Rutherford, who went close with an early chance as Wrexham beat Lex XI 2-1 in Friday’s opening pre-season friendly.

“I certainly feel from the shape that we have been doing, that is something that can happen.

“Already in training and against Lex, I had a decent chance.

“If we can get that system right then there will be a lot more chances for myself to get on the scoresheet.”
