PHIL PARKINSON wants to sign off with a win as Wrexham take a near three-week break from league action following tonight’s clash against Chesterfield at The Racecourse.

The Reds don’t have a game on Saturday because there are an odd number of teams in the fifth tier and the FA Cup fourth qualifying round clash away to Atherton Collieries or Marine takes place the following weekend.

After facing high-flying Chesterfield this evening in front of another bumper crowd, Wrexham are next on league duty at Barnet on Saturday October 23 and Parkinson hopes to have added three points to the tally.

“We have enjoyed playing at home and we have done well at home,” said Parkinson.

“I keep saying we want our home ground to be one that we relish playing at and we are really looking forward to the game.

“It will be a bouncing atmosphere, we won’t have a league game for a while after that.”

Wrexham saw Saturday’s game against Aldershot Town postponed after 50 minutes because of a waterlogged pitch at The Recreation Ground.

The Reds deservedly led 2-0 thanks to goals by strikers Jake Hyde and Paul Mullin but it came at a price as skipper Luke Young and club captain Ben Tozer picked up first half injuries.

The duo are set for a spell on the sidelines but Parkinson was pleased with how substitutes Devonte Redmond, who had a hand in Hyde’s goal, and Tyler French performed when they were introduced.

“It is going to be a headcount for Tuesday,” added Parkinson.

“We know which lads are going to be out already but as we have shown, we have got other players to come in.

“It is a huge game for us. At least we have only had 50 minutes of football so we should be nice and fresh.”

Wrexham will also discover tonight who they will face in the FA Cup on Saturday October 16 as Atherton and Marine, who drew 0-0 on Saturday, play their replay.

If the Reds’ fourth qualifying round tie goes to a replay, the match will be played at a neutral venue due to the essential pitch maintenance work at The Racecourse.

The pitch will be re-turfed after the clash against Chesterfield with the Reds’ next home league game on Saturday October 30 against Torquay United.
