WREXHAM face arguably their toughest test of the season on Saturday but Kieran Kennedy insists the Reds can leave Barrow with a much needed win in the battle for National League survival.

Dean Keates' side were held to a goalless home draw by fellow strugglers Eastleigh at the weekend and are 19th in the table, two points above the relegation zone with nine games to go.

Barrow suffered their first defeat at Holker Street since the start of September on Saturday when they went down 2-0 to Notts County but the Bluebirds remain top of the table with a four point cushion over Harrogate Town.

Ian Evatt's men also boast the best home record in the division but Wrexham have performed a lot better against the promotion contenders than the teams around them, and Kennedy says there is no reason why the Reds can't pick up three points despite being underdogs.

"It has not been good enough," said Kennedy, who is on loan from Port Vale.

"We should not be where we are but hopefully in the next few weeks we can pick up the points that we need and we can get out of this position.

"We have done well against the teams at the top of the league but for some reason or other, we find it difficult against teams around us.

"We don't fear anyone in this league. With the players we have got, we should not be where we are and if we turn up, we can beat anyone in this league.

"We have just got to go to Barrow, make sure we work hard first and foremost and then the result should follow.

"It will turn the last two games into a good four points if we can win at Barrow."

Barrow will be without suspended striker Scott Quigley, who was on loan at Wrexham during the 2017-18 season, after the league's 20-goal leading scorer was shown a red card in Saturday's reversal.

Kennedy knows Barrow will still be a big threat despite being without the in-form frontman but refuses to talk down Wrexham's chances.

"He is the top goalscorer so obviously he is doing something right," said Kennedy.

"But it doesn't matter who is on the pitch, we fancy ourselves against anyone in this league; it is just about making sure we turn up and work hard for each other."

Wrexham will hope to make more of an impact in the final third after the Reds created few decent chances against Eastleigh.

Jordan Ponticelli's second half goal was disallowed for offside and Kennedy admits it was a missed opportunity to pick up a crucial victory.

"We have probably done that too often this season; let games go through want of trying to win it," said Kennedy.

"We have gone out and given our all to try and win the game but it has not worked that way.

"It was disappointing because we felt that we needed three points to take us away from the drop zone a bit more.

"It makes it even worse when you score a perfectly good goal and it is disallowed.

"It was nice to keep a clean sheet but it was disappointing that we did not win."

Wrexham now have 43 points but Kennedy refuses to set a target that he believes will guarantee safety.

"This league this year can be anything so as long as we keep picking up three points, we will be alright," added Kennedy.
