Chris Holroyd has endured a stop-start opening two months of the season but the experienced striker won’t change the way he plays, report The Leader.

The 31-year-old missed the start of the campaign through injury and had to bide his time before returning to the side with Wrexham among the National League leaders.

Holroyd, top scorer last term, opened his account in the 4-1 thrashing of Ebbsfleet United on September 15 but a hamstring injury ruled him out of Saturday’s 1-0 win against Havant and Waterlooville.

Although it has been a frustrating time – Holroyd has been restricted to eight appearances – he will continue being fully committed when he takes to the field, even if it means running the risk of picking up injuries.

“It is part of being a footballer, not playing and being injured,” said Holroyd, who hopes to return at Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday.

“For me it is massively disappointing because I hate not playing. It kills me not playing.

“When I play I try and give 100 per cent and I will fly into tackles.”
