Wrexham manager Denis Smith was not shy to spell out his team's woes to the press this week: "We've got major, major problems. A week a go everyone was telling us we were the best team in the league, but all at once we are the worst team in the league and we look it.
"But it's early days yet and I won't get carried away, even though I have never had this situation before. I'm not going to rant and rave at the players, instead we'll sit down and explain what's going wrong. If we can't do that we will have to change the personnel, either at the top or the bottom because theclub has got to go forward this season. But I won't panic because that does not help."
Wrexham have been missing several key players including Shaun Pejic, the son of ex-Bull Mel who remains as physio of the Welsh side, as their form has nosedived. In their last league match, four players made their league debuts such was the extent of their injury problems.
