Former York City boss Gary Mills insists he's not worried by expectation after taking charge of Wrexham.

"I am going to do it with a smile on my face" - Gary Mills
The 53-year-old is instead relishing the prospect of reviving the fortunes of the North Wales club who are facing their eighth season out of the Football League.

Mills left their Conference Premier rivals Gateshead this week in favour of succeeding the recently dismissed Kevin Wilkin at the Racecouse Ground.

"The word expectation can either frighten you or inspire you, and it inspires me," he told the Daily Post. "What I have done going into York, the expectation there from their fans and I created a little bit of expectation, we got promoted out of this league. I went to Gateshead and in my first season created a lot of expectation so the word expectation doesn't frighten me.

"There is no point in doing this job if that does frighten you, I am going to relish that, I am going to work hard, but I am going to do it with a smile on my face," Mills promised. "Because if you don't have a smile on your face in this job then unfortunately you don't succeed."
