A flutter on the football?

Wrexham have been rooted at the bottom of League Two for most of this season. Back in October things looked pretty bleak and on the surface they don't appear any better now with the club five points away from safety. Nonetheless I detect improvement over the past couple of weeks. Manager Brian Little has brought eleven new signings to the club in the January transfer window and has also made a bid for Chester's Kevin Ellison. The last three matches have yielded five points with a win against MK Dons, and draws against Bradford City and Morecambe. Scoring goals remains a big problem (just nineteen in the league to date) but there's a hint of light at the end of the tunnel. The plan is to avoid becoming isolated over the next few games; the run-in to the end of the season contains a number of matches against teams currently in the lower half of the league. The new faces appear to have brought a new resolve to the club, as shown by the fact they came from behind twice at Morecambe. I'm not keen on football betting but I shall be monitoring bookmakers' prices on individual matches in the forthcoming weeks and will consider a wager on the club avoiding relegation.
