OLLIE PALMER says Wrexham owed it to their "unbelievable" supporters not to let Stockport County clinch promotion at The Racecourse.

The Hatters went into Sunday's top of the table clash in north Wales knowing victory would secure the National League title.

But Wrexham turned on the style and won 3-0 in front of more than 10,100 fans to take over as leaders on goal difference.

Stockport's destiny remains in their own hands but Palmer was determined to take the title race down to the wire and not let County celebrate promotion at Wrexham's stadium.

"That's one thing we didn't want," said Palmer.

"The fans have been unbelievable all season so that is the least we could do for them - not let anyone come here and celebrate.

"It was a great day, a fantastic win."

Palmer played his part in the win, scoring a brace to take his tally to 16 goals since joining Wrexham from AFC Wimbledon for a club record fee in January.

But the 30-year-old, who was joined on the scoresheet by leading marksman Paul Mullin, insists it was a collective effort.

"That's what I have come here to do, score goals," said Palmer.

"The main thing is winning games and it was massively important to do that on Sunday.

"The clean sheet is just as pleasing.

"We did what we needed to do as a team, it was a really pleasing performance.

"Everyone stepped up to the plate, it wasn't just me, it was a fantastic performance from everyone."

Stockport host Torquay United in their game in hand tomorrow evening and Dave Challinor's side are also at home to high-flying Halifax Town in their final fixture of the regular season on Sunday, with Wrexham heading to play-off hopefuls Dagenham and Redbridge the same afternoon.

After making up ground on the Hatters over the last few months, Palmer is pleased Wrexham are in title contention going into the final day regardless of how County fare against Torquay.

"We have closed a 12 point gap, or whatever it was, over the last eight weeks," said Palmer. "I think it is unbelievable to do that.

"Two defeats since January so it has been a pretty unbelievable run; a winning run, drawing one or two games in the midst of that but we are only human beings at the end of the day.

"It has been an unbelievable effort from the lads, let's just see what happens in the final game of the season.

"The title will still be up for grabs on Sunday, all we can do is go out and do our best to win another game, and see what happens."

Wrexham are guaranteed a top two finish, meaning the Reds will have a home semi-final in the play-offs if they miss out on the title, and avoid an eliminator tie.

But Palmer remains focussed on automatic promotion, saying: "I am not worried about second or third, I am just worried about trying to win the league."
