Goals Will Come, but for Now We'll Have to Keep Grinding out Results; MASSANKA TARGETING WIN OVER EBBSFLEET

NTUMBA MASSANKA insists it doesn't matter who is scoring so long as Wrexham continue to pick up three points.

Goals have been at a premium for the Dragons this season. Wrexham are the joint lowest scorers in the National League on 17, along with 20th-placed Guiseley and Torquay United in 23rd.

Wrexham entertain Ebbsfleet United on Saturday looking to keep pace with the leading pack.

The Dragons are third, just three points behind leaders Dover and two shy of second-placed Macclesfield Town.

Dean Keates' charges were without a game last Saturday, with their scheduled derby at Chester having been moved forward to the previous Wednesday to be televised. …
