LUKE YOUNG stressed the importance of Wrexham’s next two fixtures.

The fourth from bottom Reds, two points adrift of safety, host 19th placed Fylde tonight before heading to Ebbsfleet United, one of the teams below Dean Keates’ side, on Saturday.

Young is focussed on Fylde and is targeting a win so that Wrexham close the gap on the Coasters, who are four points better off.

“We are both battling for our lives at the wrong end of the table and it is a massive game,” said Young.

“They are a few places above us so if we win it closes the gap on them a little bit.

“Hopefully it goes our way rather than their way because then we are chasing another team above us that we are already chasing enough as it is.

“We know we have got more than enough in that dressing room to beat anybody on our day, it is just going out there and doing it.

“We know the importance of the next two games against teams in and around us but ultimately our focus is on Fylde and we will go into it confident we can come away with a victory.”

Wrexham drew 3-3 against high-flying Yeovil on Saturday and Young admits it felt like two points dropped after the Reds came from behind to lead 3-2.

“You score three goals and you expect to win the game,” added Young.

“We have got our noses in front after going behind twice and we were on the front foot then but their lad then completed his hat-trick.

“Rob Lainton hasn’t really had a save to make but he has picked the ball out of the net three times.

“It was disappointing that we didn't win and we will look at it as two points dropped rather than a point gained.

“But we haven’t lost, it was a good performance and we have got to take the positives from it going into Fylde.”
