MARK CARRINGTON prefers to focus on the future rather than dwell on the past and that means Wrexham picking up a much-needed victory in Saturday's clash with Woking at The Racecourse.

It's nearly a fortnight since the last game when Wrexham lost 2-1 against fellow strugglers Aldershot Town and the players were booed off the pitch following a woeful performance.

The Reds' lowly position in the National League hasn't changed since then, with Dean Keates' 20th placed side just two points above the relegation zone.

Carrington, the longest serving player in the squad, has drawn a line under the Shots defeat and is just looking to put things right when Wrexham face play-off chasing Woking.

"That one has gone now and we have got to look forward," said Carrington.

"We have got to make sure that we do the business this weekend.

"We have been working on a few bits in training and the mood is good around the camp again.

"We need to make sure that we take that forward and start getting some wins on the board."

A two-week break on the back of a defeat wasn't ideal but Carrington continued: "The lads are raring to get back out there and put it right.

"You want to keep going and keep racking the games up but at the same time, I don't think a break is the worst thing.

"It gives us a chance to regroup and work on a few things.

"All in all, we have had a good couple of weeks and hopefully that will show at the weekend."

Wrexham twice bounced back from defeats over the festive period by winning their next match - both times the Reds took maximum points against Chorley - and Carrington wants that to continue against the Cards.

"We have shown that we can bounce back which is a good sign," said Carrington.

"If we do lose one then we don't go moping and we don't go on a run of losing.

"We make sure that we put in a good performance and get a win, and that is something we need to keep doing."

Although beaten by Aldershot in their last Racecourse run-out, Wrexham boast a respectable home record and Carrington wants that to continue when Woking arrive in town.

"I fancy us against anyone at The Racecourse," said Carrington.

"Anyone who comes here will know they are in for a game and as you have seen this season, it doesn't matter where anybody is in the league.

"Anybody beats anybody and the league table is a bit all over the place in terms of how teams perform.

"It is a game that we are fully expecting to win."

Wrexham have 16 matches remaining in the fight for survival and Carrington knows going on an unbeaten run is key to guaranteeing safety.

"Every game is a big game, we have just got to take them one at a time and try and get on a little run," added Carrington.
