MAX CLEWORTH has never experienced the kind of electric atmosphere supporters created as Wrexham got the better of Stockport County to take the National League title race down to the wire.

More than 10,100 fans were at The Racecourse for Sunday’s top of the table clash and Wrexham won 3-0 to take over as leaders on goal difference.

Stockport entertain Torquay in their game in hand tonight and are also at home to high-flying Halifax Town in their final match on Sunday when Wrexham finish the regular season with a trip to play-off hopefuls Dagenham.

Regardless of the Hatters’ result this evening, Wrexham will still be in contention for automatic promotion this weekend and Cleworth says fans played their part in helping the Reds clinch victory against Dave Challinor’s side.

“That atmosphere was something different, it was unbelievable,” said Cleworth.

“I have never played in anything like that before.

“It was hostile even in the warm-up.

“When we came out, their fans booed and when they came out, our fans were booing.

“There was an atmosphere right from the get-go and the fans deserve a lot of credit for the noise they made throughout the game and the support they gave us.”

Stockport’s destiny remains in their own hands but Cleworth insists Wrexham, who can’t finish lower than second and will be at home in the play-off semi-final if they miss out on the title, will just take care of their own business against Dagenham at Victoria Park and see where it leaves them.

“We can only focus on ourselves, that is what we did against Stockport and we will see what happens next weekend,” said Cleworth.

“We are top now, Stockport have got to get a result on Wednesday to go top again.

“If they do that then it still goes down to the last day and anything can happen.

“All we can do is do our best and try and get three points. What will be, will be.

“The fans want the title, we want the title.

“It will be brilliant if we can get the title but if we have to go through the play-offs then that is what we have got to do.”

Stockport would have secured a return to the Football League with victory at The Racecourse but deadly strike duo Ollie Palmer (2) and Paul Mullin scored the goals to keep Wrexham in contention.

“It would have been horrible if Stockport had won the league at our ground,” added Cleworth.

“But that was never going to happen because we weren’t going to let them do it.

“It was a great performance apart from the first 10-15 minutes.

“We showed our quality throughout the game and we have got something to play for on Sunday.”
