Who nearly shot the Dragons?

Yesterday I was a guest at the Racecourse to see a very entertaining 2-2 draw, Wrexham v Aldershot. By coincidence the same result as my last visit a few weeks back, then of course with 1800 or so of the travelling SWA. It was very interesting this time to be based with the home supporters and get their take on the current scramble for NL PO places. Aldershot suffered two injuries in the warm up including one to to their goalkeeper. Yet they played crisp, attacking, passing football that was a pleasure to watch. From defence to attack no bouncing off shins and into row H when these guys receive a ball from a team mate.

The general consensus of views was this was the best team to have played at the Racecourse this season, Those that didn't say that said Aldershot AND THE SWA were the best two teams to have played there this season, which was nice to hear. Wrexham probably just about deserved a draw and had the on loan Quigley to thank for both goals, including a coolly taken one on one (yes I know, I know). He is a very tidy and accomplished player, but did not get the service and support he needed, they played him alone up front for some reason. Wrexham fans are now very disappointed with their 9 draws out of 12 matches which puts our 1 defeat to Macc into perspective. I did not need to update myself on how things were going at Maidstone as the most common q all around me 'how are Tranmere doing?' and then all the phones came out. When we did it late on 3-2 I had to remember where I was and not be too demonstrative about my joy, which was only tempered by the late,late goal at Macc. I also had to not respond to those calling MM 'melon head' and 'pathetic', apparently for his views on the reason(s) for our defeat to Macc.

Conclusion: Wrexham as a club are like us i.e. too big to be in the NL but also like us have to deserve their promotion as past reputations, big stadiums (stadia?) or even big (gish) crowds count for nothing, it's points that matter. And we will have to be right on our game on 14 April at PP to beat the Shots. But I believe we will, otherwise there's no point in me turning up
