PHIL PARKINSON described Wrexham supporters as "incredible" as a record breaking crowd attended Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Chesterfield at The Racecourse.

A total of 9,147 fans saw the Reds come from behind to earn a point thanks to leading scorer Paul Mullin's fifth goal of the campaign six minutes from time.

When told is was Wrexham's highest ever National League attendance and biggest league midweek crowd since 1979, Parkinson said: "Incredible.

"I was feeling for the supporters in the first half because in the first three home games of the season, they have seen us dominate the first period and be excellent.

"Some of the football we played against Notts County, Woking and Dagenham was top class and we were unable to reproduce that.

"A little bit of it was the conditions and also the way Chesterfield play but we didn't do enough to combat that; we have got to look at that and we will do.

"But once again, every single person who came in supporting Wrexham was absolutely magnificent - 10 out of 10."

Wrexham don't have a league game for just over two weeks, with the Reds not in action tomorrow and away at Marine in their FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie next Saturday.

"It was crucial to get the point," said Parkinson.

"I felt that the subs coming on and the change of the shape just gave us a lift and we needed it at that time.

"Games do open up and then you can play but it is kind of earning the right and make sure you are in the game when it does open up.

"We were a little bit passive in our play, we did not carry enough threat. The conditions played a part in that but there were also several things we needed to do better, and we will look at that.

"It is a great point for us taking everything into consideration and we move on."
