Wrexham boss Andy Morrell not satisfied despite setting up FA Trophy final with Grimsby Town
DESPITE watching his side seal their first ever trip to Wembley, Wrexham boss Andy Morrell in no mood for celebrations.
While Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Gainsborough did not ultimately deny the Dragons a place in the FA Trophy final against Grimsby Town later this month, it did end the club's 13-match unbeaten run.
It was Neil Ashton's late goal in a 3-1 semi-final first leg victory at the Racecourse that proved to be difference between the teams, but only after Trinity had given the Welsh outfit an almighty scare.
Danny Wright's first-half goal stretched the aggregate score to 4-1, but Terry Hawkridge's equaliser gave Trinity hope and the visitors were forced to hang on to avoid extra time when former Mariner Michael Leary struck again six minutes from time.

Despite progressing to the final, Morrell was less than satisfied with the performance at the Northolme and afterwards bemoaned the end of his side's proud unbeaten run.
"We are through, that's about all I can say," he told the Daily Post.
"We weren't fabulous on Saturday and we knew it was going to be difficult because they were going to stick it on us in front of their own fans. They certainly did that and made it really tough.
"I'm a bit subdued really because our unbeaten run has come to an end after 12 or 13 games so we are going to have to start that again which is disappointing."
He added: "I'm just pleased we are through and that we are at Wembley.
"You could see what it meant to the fans – who have been brilliant – and what a travelling army they were on Saturday. And I'm sure we'll take a few to Wembley as well."
