Chris Holroyd hopes that a bumper crowd at the Racecourse can inspire high-flying Wrexham to another victory on Saturday.

A 6,000-plus attendance is expected for the clash with Bromley, the first of their Bank Holiday weekend fixture double-header.

Holroyd believes the Reds can flourish this season and and that the club's ardent fanbase will be central to their success.

He said: "I think our biggest gate last year was the Tranmere game at home. It ended as a two-all draw in front of a big team and I felt we revelled in playing that kind of big-game atmosphere.

"Me personally I love playing in front of a big crowd, it's great to have that big atmosphere about the place.

"When things aren't going so well I think that big expectation from a crowd can be a hindrance, but when there's a real feelgood factor in the ground it can only benefit us as players and and as a club.

"Our fanbase is one of the great pluses we've got going for us as a club. There's not many teams in this league that can call upon that kind of support.

"And it's not just the numbers, it's the type of support we get with away fans travelling hundreds of miles on Tuesday nights - and we're talking about a lot of people giving up their time to support us.

"It means a lot to us as players and we try give it our all on the pitch and hopefully they can see that.

"It's a two-way relationship in that respect and if we show them that level of commitment I know they'll play a massive part in helping us through this season."

Currently top of the National League table, Wrexham have impressed by winning four of their opening five games and drawing the other.

Reds fans appear seem to be embracing the positivity instilled by manager Sam Ricketts' attempts to implement a more attacking philosophy.

And Holroyd has welcomed a more expansive style and a departure from the defensive approach favoured by former boss Dean Keates,

"I said in the summer that we needed to bring that feelgood factor around the club after the disappointing end to last season" added Holroyd.

"We needed to play some good football and more importantly get some points on the board early on. It's been a good start, but we're not getting carried away it's still everything to play.

"Balance is a good word to use for us this season. There wasn't the same balance there last season, where we were heavily reliant on defending.

"As attackers, we suffered from that approach because there was a lack of service at times. But that's shifted now and football is all about getting that right.

"But just because things are going well for us at the moment, doesn't mean we can ease off. We've got to keep working hard on all aspects of our game to make sure that balance remains right."

A niggling foot injury sustained in Wrexham's final summer friendly against Forest Green has dogged Holroyd in the early stages of the season.

Now fully-fit, the 31-year-old striker has been on the bench for both of Wrexham's last two games and is desperate to be involved this weekend.

He said: "I'm always hoping to be involved. At my age I always want to be playing every game, but the lads have been doing great and sometimes as a footballer you've just got to bide your time.

"Football is a squad game these days and you revel in the victories whatever part you play. I think that all of our substitutes this season have made an impact when they've come on.

"That's key and having that quality throughout the squad will help us a lot this season."
