Wrexham boss Dean Keates has called on his side to show improvement ahead of facing promotion chasers Tranmere Rovers writes Tom Feaheny.

The Dragons have failed to win in four and drew 1-1 against relegation threatened Torquay last weekend. Keates said despite the side not aiming for promotion and safe from relegation, there is still a lot on the line.

“You want to finish the season as strong and in as good form as you can to carry on. Everybody is out of contract so the lads in the building have got an opportunity in the next six games to show their worth to still be here.

“I can learn a lot about them now. The mental state because we have got over 50 points, now 54, do they look like they have downed tools? If that is the case then that is not the attitude and application that will be in the building.”.

Keates admits he thinks his side will be up for the match due to the level of opponent they are facing. He told The Leader.

“They are easy games, the disappointing thing is we expect a reaction and a response. But it should still be the same mentality be it Torquay or Tranmere.

Tranmere are right in the mix for the title. They will have to come and try and win so all being well it can be an entertaining game for the fans and we come out of it with three points.”

Wrexham will be without James Jennings who continues to serve his suspension. Olly Marx who missed out last week is available to feature for the side.
