Wrexham’s Bryan Hughes is certain he’s still the right man to lead the Red Dragons after BT Sport broadcast calls from fans for his sacking.
Hughes, pictured, insists he understands the frustration of fans after needing a late Bobby Grant penalty two minutes from time in Saturday’s televised game at The Racecourse Ground to rescue a 1-1 draw with Sutton United.
There were chants of “You’re getting sacked in the morning” from the home faithful as his side slipped to a sixth match without a win in the National League to sit just a point above the drop zone.

Making a passionate defence on Sunday, a defiant Hughes told the Daily Post’s website North Wales Live: “We had a good opportunity in the last two home games, we’ve taken two points from a possible six, it might look differently if we’d won them.
“I know exactly where we are in the table, and it is not good reading. I understand that, we want to be as high as we can, because we want to build on what we did last season.
“I know how much it means to the club and the fans, we have got a good mix, and I think it is just about getting that formula to try and get us driving up that table.
“It is early days still, I’d be in the wrong game if I wasn’t concerned, because I am concerned about us winning games and at the moment we are not, I am certainly concerned.
“But looking up we have got a game in hand, we are six points off sixth, there is still a lot to play for, (but) from my perspective, I’ve got to get a formula that is going to win games.”
The Wrexham boss continued: “It isn’t nice, I’ve got a relationship with the club and the fans, being an ex-player, sometimes that goes out the window, I’ve seen it many times before with managers and their old clubs if things are going quite right or the way they want it to go.
“We haven’t won in six games and I understand the frustrations, everything rests with me, I am the manager of this football club. For all the good work we are doing, and we are trying to be successful, we have got to take it on to the pitch and tonight we weren’t good enough to win the game.
“Now we have got to address it, get a formula that is going to start winning games and start climbing the table. The fans have been great since I’ve come to the club.
“I feel every single kick, every ball with the fans, they are going to be frustrated, we haven’t won in six games. We are all frustrated but they are still going to come. We are a fan owned club, they are going to support the team and keep pushing us.”
He added: “I can’t fault the fans, they’ve been fantastic, I’ve said from day one that I want the fans to be involved as much as they can, a unified approach. I know they are disappointed with the way things are going, like we all are, but it is my job now to try and get it right.”
