Midfielder Johnny Hunt believes Wrexham are capable of repeating their 1-0 win at Forest Green against Bristol Rovers.

Wrexham go to Bristol on Tuesday on the back of three consecutive away wins.

In contrast Kevin Wilkin's side have lost two home games but Hunt hopes a good result at Rovers will give them confidence ahead of Saturday's home game against Welling.

"If we can pick up another result then I'm sure we'll be absolutely flying going into next Saturday," Hunt said.

"We've got to go there and do exactly what we've done [at Forest Green].

"Out of two away games you would have taken four points.

"But now you're looking to take maximum points from both games after the win.

"If we can go away from home and pick points up like we have done, it can only give confidence to the lads."

Bristol Rovers have had a mixed start to life in the Conference following their relegation from League Two, losing three of their opening seven games including Saturday's 2-0 loss at Braintree Town.

Saturday's win at Forest Green was Hunt's first game back in a Wrexham shirt after rejoining on loan from Cambridge United until January.

The Liverpool-born player admits he was frustrated not to have featured for the League Two newcomers since his summer move from Wrexham.

"I'm made up to be back and get playing again," Hunt said.

"I haven't had the chance to play and I thought with the transfer window coming to an end I didn't want to miss out on playing games.

"I could have sat around and waited for a chance, but that might never have come.

"I spoke with the manager [Richard Money] and he thought it was best I get games. I just want to play football.

"It was an easy decision as soon as I knew they [Wrexham] were interested. I wanted to come back."
