Shaun Pearson says Wrexham are continuing to evolve as a team and believes the Dragons have learnt the lessons from their disappointing Bank Holiday weekend, report the Daily Post.

Wrexham endured a disappointing August Bank Holiday weekend, Luke Summerfield’s 91st minute own goal ensuring a 2-2 draw with Bromley on the Saturday before the Dragons lost their unbeaten record 48 hours later, Alex Gudger sweeping home the only goal of the game in a 1-0 defeat at Solihull Moors.

Since that loss Wrexham have claimed seven from a possible nine points to move back up to second place in the National League, and Pearson believes the maturity shown in Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Braintree Town is proof the Dragons have learnt from the Bromley draw.

“It has been a progression,” said Pearson. “The young lads especially, we have got a few older heads in the squad, but the young lads… we played Bromley at home the other week and drew 2-2.

“A couple of times we could have taken the ball to the corner at 2-1 in the 90th minute but we are shooting (instead). On Saturday we are taking the ball to the corner and seeing the game out with any fuss at the end, rather than having to defend balls into your box.”
