PHIL PARKINSON hailed the strong mentality in his squad as Wrexham aim to mark their return to National League action with another away win against Yeovil on Saturday.

Wrexham lost 3-1 at Notts County in their last league outing on January 2 but the Reds had won six of their previous seven matches on the road.

That impressive run means Parkinson’s side boast the third best away record in the division, and he is looking for the same attitude from his players when the promotion chasing Reds face the Glovers at Huish Park in their first league game for three weeks this weekend.

“We have got a strong mentality in the group and we want to keep that because it is so important,” said Parkinson.

“The leadership qualities in the group are really important to us, and strength of character and mentality with the way we approach games is important, allied with the quality we have shown.

“But it is digging in sometimes away from home and when decisions go against you, it seems to happen away from home and you have just got to be ready to be resilient as a group.

“That is the kind of attitude that we need to take down to Yeovil.”

Wrexham were involved in the FA Trophy last weekend and the 5-1 win against Folkestone Invicta secured a fifth round home tie against Boreham Wood.

Parkinson named a strong side for the clash and he felt captain Luke Young led by example in the victory.

“The way Youngy goes about his business, the way he trains every day and his professionalism out on the pitch is a great example to all our players,” said Parkinson.

“I spoke to the lads about mentality and when we are winning games, to keep doing things right, be professional and be strong in our mentality, and Youngy epitomises that.

“Other players will take headlines with the goals but the way he went about his business again was exceptional.”
