Defender Kyle Cameron says BT Sport pundits done Notts County a favour over comments about Wrexham during the televised fixture.
Both sides remain unbeaten in the National League after an entertaining draw at a full capacity Racecourse Ground on Bank Holiday Monday.
Kyle Wootton saw his header in the final minute of the first half make it 1-0 to Notts County, his third in as many games, against the run of play after Wrexham dominated for a long spell.
The up came surprise new signing Paul Mullin who also scored with a header, deservedly bringing Wrexham level soon after the interval.
Wrexham currently sit eighth in the table with goal difference separating them and the Magpies in seventh.
Kyle Cameron says he is happy to let the pundits write off Notts County’s promotion prospects and says they will benefit from “sneaking under the radar”, via Nottingham Post.
The 24 year old produced a man-of-the-match performance against a highly-fancied to be crowned champions side due to their spending with Stockport and Chesterfield also backed to be up there.
Notts County have their own ambitions however to go up back to the Football League having made an unbeaten start to the campaign.
Despite this, BT Sport’s pundits for the National League have chose not to tip the Meadow Lane outfit to be among the title-chasers and Cameron says all the pressure is on the big spenders.
“Everyone is aware of it (the money being spent), but it comes with pressure,” he said.
“They (Wrexham) are obviously the team under pressure along with Stockport and Chesterfield.
“They are the three clubs ahead of us budget-wise and are really spending the big bucks.
“The pressure is on them to do something. I looked at the BT Sport predictions last weekend and I think only one person had us to win the play-offs.
“It’s a game of opinions. You’re not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. If they want to think other people are going to do it, then let them.
“If we can sneak under the radar then hopefully by the time they click on to what we’re doing we are too far ahead.
“It’s good that people aren’t expecting us to do anything which means we can play with no pressure and really afford to enjoy the games.”

Cameron adds that his side’s performance against the Welsh club proved Burchnall’s side have the quality to match the division’s best despite not being able to compete financially.
“The gaffer said the pressure was on Wrexham because of the backing they’ve had, the players they are bringing in and the calibre of them too,” he added.
“But I think we stood up really well to that. And we showed in spells that we are as good if not better than Wrexham.
“Even though they had a lot of pressure, if we moved and manipulated the ball a bit better at times and not forced things, we could have created a few more clear-cut chances.
“But it’s a point and we are still unbeaten.”

ON WREXHAM’S TWEET:
@mathew1864: A good draw in the end. We will get stronger as we gel more. Generally pleased with the team!
@martyndt: I thought it was only us Hereford fans that whined like bitches when we don’t win by at least 5 goals 😂 Good game to watch, the wrongly disallowed goal would have made the game very different, that long throw will win games, just need to mix it up with more stuff on the floor
@pie_flat: Two good teams. Better point for us than you but a fair result in the end. Great advert for the NL.
@Wrexhamisdname: Good game🔴🏴
@m_w890: Fair result between two good sides. Be surprised to see a team play that well at the racecourse again this season, they’ll be right in the mix.
@DanAuton2590: Deadpool seething
@DanielNicholls5: Seen more than enough to know we will be a good team this year, 9 new players give the team a few more games and we will put a run together, hard start to the season in terms of fixtures and still unbeaten, last year would of played out for a draw for the first whistle.
@mrcuthers: A battle of styles. Notts had to absorb the inevitable aerial bombardment, but Wrexham were very good at it. That’s not a criticism, it’s an effective style. We probably won’t have many tougher away days this season, so a hard earned point… I’ll take that. We’ll both be top 3.
@joemills27: Neutral watching the game. Entertaining game.. I thought the referee was an absolute wanker, but the game should have been dead and buried in the first half with the chances you created. Best of luck for the rest of the season though
ON NOTTS COUNTY’S TWEET:
@adamjamesred: A resolute, battling performance. We know there’s skill and creativity in this squad, but it’s nice to also see a solid defensive showing away at the bookies favourites for the title. Good signs.
@frankbutcher76: Best we’ve defended in a long time particularly balls into the box. Taylor looks a good signing, our goal was terrific.
@chogger5: Take that a point away at the champions elect if you believe the hype
@mrcuthers: Well played, lads. Stood up to a long ball & throw in bombardment tonight really well. Wrexham will be top 3 without doubt, and will bully sides, but we did really well. Classic away performance. Next few games, we need to bag a lot of points though.
@Coops138: Long ball looney tunes 1-1 Notts
@adam1862_: Great point but another 2 points dropped to a goalkeeping error. Only 3 games in and it’s happened twice now…
@sybiltherabbit: Great point lads. Dug in away from home and battled.
