Kevin Wilkin left Nuneaton Town to become Wrexham manager

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin says his side can now turn their attention to Sunday's FA Trophy final against North Ferriby United.

Wilkin's side were beaten 2-0 by his former club Nuneaton Town in the Conference on Tuesday.

It was Wrexham's 10th game in 33 days and Wilkin says he can now concentrate fully on the FA Trophy final at Wembley.

"I'm glad the game is out of the way and we can focus on Sunday," he said.

Rob Ogleby scored against his former club to give struggling Nuneaton Town a vital home win.

Wilkin had said ahead of his return to Nuneaton that it was a game he could have done without ahead of Sunday's game.

"People clearly had half an eye on Sunday but I don't want to makes excuses about a big game coming up because that would be unfair on Nuneaton," Wilkin added.

"Players had an opportunity to impress on me for Sunday and there's not many that have come out with too many positives.

"I don't want to look for excuses for players. I think you have to get on with it and manage it. We need to take this as a kick up the backside."

Wilkin is hopeful defenders Blaine Hudson and Luke Waterfall and winger Wes York will be available for Sunday's final at Wembley following injuries.
