GRAHAM BARROW says shirts are up for grabs this weekend as Wrexham attempt to end their dismal run of form.

Wrexham go into Saturday's home game against Maidenhead United on the back of five successive defeats, with the Reds failing to score during that sorry period.

Barrow has been active in the January transfer window but recently-signed strikers Jason Oswell and Cole Stockton were only included on the substitutes bench for Saturday's 2-0 loss at AFC Fylde, while on-loan winger Ben Tollitt did not even make the squad.

However, Barrow has indicated that everyone has a chance for the visit of the Magpies and it is down to the players to impress this week in training.

"It should be obvious to them that it is there for them," said Barrow.

"We will have to tell them that it is back to square one, who wants to play Saturday? Show us this week.

"They are a great bunch of lads but you can be too nice in this game and we need to find a ruthless streak in ourselves.

"We have to look at everything that is going to get us out of this run we are in.

"We will have to look at every option this week and see who really stands out and wants to play."

Barrow admits too many players were below-par at Mill Farm as goals either side of the break led to a fourth league defeat in a row.

"It is amazing from not having any problems, apart from injuries, a few weeks ago," said Barrow.

"I can remember when we were winning games and we had 16 players basically, we could only just put a team and a bench out.

"We have added to the squad and then it seems to be problem after problem.

"I think they need to clear their heads a little bit - you feel like shaking some of them!

"You can't win a game firing on five or six cylinders; I would say five or six of our players weren't their normal selves.

"It is not about them playing really well, it is about them doing their job on the day."
