Manager Gary Mills says his priority is signing a striker as Wrexham bid to get their play-off push back on track.

Mills' side came from behind to secure their first win in five National League games with a 3-1 victory over Lincoln City.

The Dragons are six points off the play-off spots and Mills wants to strengthen his forward options.

"We're going to need that to help us go into the last 18 games," Mills said.

"We brought Kayden [Jackson] on, and I thought he was superb, but he was the only one I had on the bench to make a change."

Wrexham have agreed terms with forward Louis Briscoe, who is a free agent after his Torquay United contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

Briscoe, 27, has been training with the Dragons as he looks to prove his fitness following a calf injury.

"Louis will be training with us on Monday and he's another striker," Mills added.

"But I want to bring another one in so that gives us a couple more strikers."

Goals from Wes York, Connor Jennings and new signing Simon Heslop secured Wrexham's first win of 2016 with a 3-1 victory over Lincoln City.

Wrexham, who are 10th in the National League, travel to Braintree Town for a re-arranged game on Tuesday and away at Eastleigh on Saturday.
