Akil Wright offered an ominous warning to the rest of the National League, insisting “we know we are better than that” after securing a 3-1 win away from home.

The Dragons moved to the top of the standings in midweek with a 2-0 win at Maidenhead United and maintained their place at the summit with a 3-1 win at Eastleigh on the weekend. Manager Sam Ricketts stated the opening 20 minutes at Ten Acres was the best the Dragons have played this season, but bemoaned his side for allowing the Spitfires a lifeline in proceedings, Paul McCallum firing home on 68 minutes to become the first player this season to beat Wrexham goalkeeper Rob Lainton.

And despite the 3-1 win, secured thanks to goals from Manny Smith, an own goal attributed to Alex Wynter and a fourth goal in five games from Mike Fondop, Wright insisted there was still a lot more to come from his side.

“It has been a great start for us, but we have got to keep it going,” said the midfielder. “Obviously we will rest and recover now and then we go again next Saturday at home against Bromley.

“It is too early to get too excited, it is nice for the fans and of course for ourselves, it gives us a huge confidence boost, but we have got to keep going and maintain our standards.”
