WREXHAM'S destiny in not in their own hands but Phil Parkinson is just pleased to be in title contention going into Wrexham's final game of the season.

Sunday's brilliant 3-0 victory over title rivals Stockport County enabled the Reds to take over as National League leaders on goal difference.

The Hatters host Torquay in their game in hand tomorrow night before completing the regular season with another home match against high-flying Halifax Town on Sunday, the same day Wrexham head to play-off hopefuls Dagenham and Redbridge for their final fixture.

Whatever the outcome when Stockport, who would have clinched automatic promotion with victory over the Reds, face Torquay tomorrow night, Wrexham will still have a chance of taking top spot when they face the Daggers and that's all that Parkinson wanted.

"We had the aim to come to the Stockport game to have something on it," said Parkinson.

"We said we can't have them celebrating on our pitch, we couldn't let that happen, and it is important that we got the result.

"We have achieved that but still work to do.

"We go down to Dagenham with it all to play for."

Wrexham have made up ground on long-time leaders Stockport over the last few months, taking over at the summit thanks to goals from deadly strike duo Ollie Palmer (2) and Paul Mullin.

Parkinson always felt his side could catch the Edgeley Park outfit.

"We had a big discrepancy between home and away games, and we knew we had home games coming up," said Parkinson.

"I always felt it was a false gap at that stage but equally, we did need Stockport to slip-up which they have done.

"I think the FA Trophy game psychologically was important and we believed we could claw it back.

"We have done it but the job isn't done yet.

"But it is great to be in the title race going down to Dagenham on Sunday."
