DEAN KEATES is focused on the job in hand and won't get sidetracked by speculation that only three clubs will be relegated from the National League this season.

Rumours suggest that a trio of teams will do down from the fifth tier instead of four due to the demise of Bury, who were expelled from the English Football League in August after 125 years of membership due to unpaid debts.

A decision has yet to be made on the make-up of the football pyramid for the 2020-21 campaign and with that in mind, Keates is just concentrating on ensuring 19th placed Wrexham, two points above the bottom four going into Saturday's home game against Torquay, guarantee safety.

"What happens with the league and how many get relegated, I can't effect them," said Keates. "We can't effect them as a group and as a football club.

"All we need to do is go and win football matches.

"We have got a big game at the weekend. We have been in decent form and it was a good away performance at Chesterfield; disappointed because we took the lead twice and we need to see it through.

"We didn't but we have put it to bed.

"We have to make sure that we go out there at the weekend and give it absolutely everything for the football club, and the lads who cross that white line do their best to get three points."

The bottom half of the National League table is congested with a number of teams battling to avoid the dreaded drop.

And although results elsewhere in the coming weeks and months could help Wrexham's cause, Keates is just concerned with his side bouncing back from the 3-2 defeat at Chesterfield by starting the final 12 games with a win against Torquay.

"We have to worry about ourselves," said Keates. "It is completely and utterly in our hands.

"We were disappointed at Chesterfield. We have been in good form of late but everything was there performance-wise for us, one or two things did not go our way.

"We will look to rectify those mistakes this weekend and all being well we get three points."
