“I definitely thought our performance was great from start to finish, and in the end they would always exercise caution because of their situation,” said McMahon.
“We should have Can and should finish the game, that’s something we have to get better at, we know that anyway. “
Wrexham attacked everything in the final stages when they were trying to find a way into the top 7, and although they scored the equalizer, it proved not enough.

The boss agrees that the The entire season was an enormous learning curve as they finished the season as one of the best teams in the division.
