LUKE YOUNG admits it would be a "nice achievement" to end the season as leading goalscorer but the midfielder would sacrifice adding to his tally if Wrexham were guaranteed a play-off spot.

The 28-year-old converted two penalties in Saturday's 2-1 win over Solihull Moors to move onto nine goals, joint top marksman with striker Kwame Thomas who is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after rupturing his Achilles.

Having already enjoyed the most prolific campaign of his career, former Plymouth and Torquay man Young would love to get into double figures in the final five games and land the accolade but insists Wrexham finishing in the top-seven comes first.

"I don't think I have even been close to being leading scorer," said Young.

"There is a chance for me to be top scorer at the club and it would be a nice achievement.

"But it is not about me, it is not about how many goals I score.

"If I don't get another goal this season and we get in the play-offs, I will be as happy as if I scored in every game."

Young would already be on 10 goals and the outright leading scorer but his strike in January's win over Dover doesn't count as the Whites' results have been expunged after they stopped playing games in a row over funding to help clubs survive the coronavirus pandemic.

And even though penalties make up the majority of goals, it doesn't make the feat less special to Young.

"Effectively I am on nine goals but if the Dover goal hadn't been taken off I would be on 10," said Young.

"I am close to the double-figure mark with five games to go and if you'd have given me nine goals at the start of the season, I would have taken it and snapped your hand off!

"A lot of them have been penalties but at the end of the day, a goal is a goal. You have still got to put the ball in the back of the net but I have scored a couple of great goals too.

"It was nice to get back on the scoresheet again and long may it continue between now and the end of the season.

"But whoever scores, it is about the team and all we can do is put in a shift for each other and hopefully we get the results that we deserve."

Wrexham followed up the win over Solihull by drawing 2-2 at Maidenhead to remain sixth in the National League and extend the unbeaten run to five games.

Young, who has started every league game this season, is pleased the Reds' destiny is in their own hands.

"It is in our own hands" said Young. "We have just got to take it game by game and take care of our own business.

"If we keep winning games and keep picking up points, we know we have got a chance of being in there.

"There are five games to go, five really big games and we have just got to put our game onto the other team."
