Wrexham manager Dean Keates says “anyone” has a chance of going on to grab National League promotion glory – none more so than his own side.
The Dragons rose to fifth last weekend after getting the better of Eastleigh at the Racecourse Ground.
It was the first weekend that any of the leaders have managed to retain top spot as Macclesfield Town clung on after their narrow victory over Ebbsfleet United.
Keates believes if his side can add goals to their game then there is every chance they too can make a play for first place.
They have scored only 13 times – with just two clubs, Tranmere and Guiseley, finding the net less than them so far this season.
The manager is “always on the look out” for a new striker but think Chris Holroyd’s goal against the Spitfires can start him off on a good run.
“I really do think that anyone has a chance, it’s that’s kind of league by the looks of it this year,” said the manager, Wrexham’s former captain. “It’s there this season if one of the clubs wants to go and grab it and hopefully we can be one of the sides challenging.

Wrexham play AFC Fylde this weekend in the FA Cup – not the tie either club would have really wanted as they look for an good run in the competition.
“This club has great memories and traditions in this competition as we want to create some more,” he said.
“But AFC Fylde will be wanting a run themselves. It brings great publicity doing well in the FA Cup.”
