After a stunted start to life as a Wrexham player, Chris Holroyd feels he is ‘hitting my stride now’ after scoring his second Dragons goal in the last four games.

Holroyd was forced off after just 33 minutes on the opening day of the season with a dislocated shoulder as Wrexham went down to a 1-0 loss against his former club Macclesfield Town .

The 30-year-old forward missed the following seven games before being an unused substitute in the 0-0 draw at Torquay in early September .

Holroyd made his second appearance of the season for Wrexham four days later as he replaced Leo Smith at half time in the 0-0 draw with Hartlepool United , while he has then started the ensuring five games, scoring the winner as 10-man Wrexham claimed all three points at Prenton Park against Tranmere Rovers, and adding his second on Saturday in the 2-1 win over Eastleigh.

Saturday’s victory, in which skipper Shaun Pearson cancelled out Ben Williamson’s earlier strike for the Spitfires, saw Wrexham extend their unbeaten run to 10 matches and move up to fifth in the standings, just three points behind early leaders Macclesfield.

And Holroyd feels he, and also Wrexham, are finally starting to hit form.

“I feel like I am hitting my stride now,” said Holroyd. “It was a tough start for me (with the injury), but going back into the team five games ago I feel like I have improved every game.

“My fitness has come on and the team is starting to gel, so I am enjoying it at the moment.”
