WREXHAM captain Luke Young issued a rallying cry and is looking for one big push during the second half of the season in the quest for promotion.

The Reds shot up the National League following a good run of form and remained third in the standings despite starting 2022 with a 3-1 defeat at Notts County on January 2.

That marked the halfway mark in Wrexham's season but Phil Parkinson's men haven't played a league game since then and other teams have capitalised, with the Reds slipping to eighth position.

But Wrexham are only outside the play-offs on goal difference, sit eight points behind leaders Halifax with a game in hand and just three adrift of third placed Stockport.

Young is pleased to be in the promotion picture following a slow start to the campaign and the midfielder, preparing for the first league game in three weeks against Yeovil at Huish Park on Saturday, says it is still all to play for.

"Overall we can't too disheartened with the stage that we are at in the season," said Young.

"It took us a few games to get going but I think we are finally finding the right formula, the right style of play how the gaffer wants us to play.

"When you are going into games confident, it makes it 10 times easier because we know we are starting to come together now at a good time.

"We have put ourselves in a good position, we are not miles off top spot but we can't worry about what everybody else does.

"We can only worry about what we do so as long as we keep performing, keep picking up points, keep winning games.

"We are in a good position setting ourselves up for the second half of the season, now it is a big push from now until the end of the season to get where we want to be.

"Ultimately, as close to the top - if not top - as possible, but the overall aim has got to be minimum play-offs and try and get out of this league this season."
