TITLE-CHASING Wrexham remain on top of the league with their fan-tastic supporters backing them all the way.

The Reds are the best supported team in the National League and more than 7,000 fans watched Saturday’s hard-fought 1-0 win against Chesterfield at The Racecourse.

The 7,106 attendance was the best in the National League and better than 11 of the 12 games in League Two with Notts County’s match at Meadow Lane pulling in more spectators. Only Sunderland, Luton, Portsmouth and Doncaster attracted higher gates in the 12 League One games.

Back at The Racecourse on Saturday was former Wrexham manager Brian Flynn, who has been appointed new boss Bryan Hughes’ assistant.

“It is great to have Brian alongside me,” said Hughes, who also saw former Reds’ favourite Joey Jones and Peter Ward attend the game where midfielder Akil Wright scored the only goal of the game to keep Wrexham two points clear of Solihull Moors.

“That knowledge and experience is why I brought him in. I am a young manager and I need to learn off these guys.

“Now it is about me and Brian learning our own qualities and bringing that unified approach together as one and hopefully get the right performances and results for this football club.”
