VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wrexham caretaker manager Andy Morrell told BBC Radio Wales:

Wrexham a 'popular job' - Morrell

"I thoroughly enjoyed my day. The lads showed up and were counted. I'll keep this ball rolling.

"I've got four or five games to see if I like it or not and if it's for me.

"I'm here to keep the results and the ball rolling and then we'll go from there."
