MARK CARRINGTON won't allow the Aldershot set-back to derail Wrexham's push for promotion.

The Reds went into Saturday's clash against the Shots on the back of a six-game unbeaten run that had taken Dean Keates' side into the play-off places.

Despite making a promising start at The Recreation Ground, Wrexham never recovered from going behind midway through the first half and slumped to a 3-0 defeat.

Wrexham go into tonight's home game against promotion rivals Hartlepool United sitting seventh in the National League and Carrington, the longest serving player in the squad, is looking for an immediate response.

"We are still in a good place to kick on for the rest of the season," said Carrington.

"We have got a great squad and we have got some good momentum going.

"You are going to get set-backs in a season, little things here and there, and it is how you come back from them.

"Aldershot is gone now and it is how we bounce back.

"We are ready to go. We will have a look at it and see how we could have done better, and move on to Hartlepool."

Carrington, who is spending an eight campaign at The Racecourse, welcomed the news that the National League campaign will continue amid the row over funding to help clubs get through the coronavirus pandemic.

"It is brilliant, it is what we all wanted," said Carrington.

"We wanted the season to carry on and we want to get out of this league.

"We can only focus on ourselves and I think we are in a good place to go on and do the best we can."
