JAKE LAWLOR believes Wrexham are starting to click at both ends of the pitch as the battle to avoid relegation gathers pace.

Dean Keates' side go into tomorrow's home game against fellow strugglers Dagenham and Redbridge on the back of two successive wins and clean sheets against Harrogate Town and Woking.

It was only the second time this season that the Reds have won two games in a row, taking the amount of clean sheets to 10 - some way off the impressive tally last term.

But with Wrexham more of an attacking threat, scoring five goals in the back-to-back wins. Lawlor feels things are beginning to fall into place.

"Early on in the season we would do alright at the back but not as good up top, and then vice-versa; we would do alright up top but then concede two or three," said Lawlor.

"It has started clicking at the minute so hopefully we can get the attack and the defensive side right."

Centre-back Lawlor understandably wants more shut-outs from the Reds in the final 14 games.

"The clean sheets are something that we have been disappointed with, the amount we have got this season," said Lawlor.

"But it is a couple of clean sheets now and hopefully we can keep more; at the very least we get a point from the game.

"Last season we were on a bit of a run and clean sheets became second nature, a bit of a habit.

"Hopefully we can do that in the remaining games."

Wrexham's latest clean sheet came at second placed Harrogate last weekend when the Reds won 2-0, registering a first ever win on a 3G playing surface.

The Reds took an early lead through James Jennings' stunning free-kick and had to soak up a lot of first half pressure but Dean Keates' side were on top after the break and another well-taken goal by JJ Hooper secured maximum points.

"It was a good team performance," said Lawlor.

"Obviously Harrogate are doing really well in the league and have had some good results recently, but we played well as a team and it was a good result."

Victory leaves Wrexham 17th in the table, four points above the relegation zone, and Lawlor wants to continue the good run of form by beating Dagenham to make it three wins in a row.

"In this league, and especially this season, it is on the day and everyone is as good as each other," said Lawlor.

"But we are very confident of beating anyone, especially now with the little bit of a run that we have managed to go on.

"We are always confident, especially at home, and hopefully we will do that tomorrow and get the three points, and build on that."

It has been a superb response from Wrexham since suffering a woeful 2-1 defeat at home to Aldershot.

"It is hard to put your finger on it but it has been coming for a while," added Lawlor.

"We have been slowly improving since the new gaffer has come in.

"We always believed that we were only a good performance away from kicking on but the two weeks we had off gave us a chance to work on a lot of things and it has improved us."
