WREXHAM will be hoping for a helping hand tonight and Phil Parkinson does not expect Stockport County to get it all their own way against Torquay United.

The Reds replaced the Hatters at the top of the National League on goal difference after beating their title rivals 3-0 at The Racecourse on Sunday.

Stockport host Torquay this evening in their game in hand and are also at home to high-flying Halifax Town in their final match on Sunday, the same day Wrexham complete the regular season with a trip to play-off hopefuls Dagenham and Redbridge.

Wrexham's destiny in out of their own hands but Parkinson says neither the Reds or Stockport will get an easy ride in their remaining fixtures as the race for automatic promotion goes down to the wire.

"Every game is tough," said Parkinson.

"One thing about this league this year, even the likes of Dover have been relegated for a long time but have kept their credibility.

"They have put on a lot of close games recently so every team has played really well every single game.

"I am sure Torquay and Halifax will do the game. There are two important games for Stockport, Torquay and Halifax.

"We have got a tough one ourselves but if we play like we did on Sunday we will have a great chance."

Stockport would have clinched the title with victory over Wrexham and Parkinson feels losing the top of the table clash will put added pressure on Dave Challinor's side going into the crucial clash with Torquay.

"It just increases the pressure on Stockport going into the game on Wednesday night," added Parkinson.

"If they are going to win it, we have got to make sure they earn it and if they slip-up, as I have said all along, we have got to be ready and waiting.

"Sunday's performance has enabled us to go to Dagenham ready to take care of our own business which hopefully we will do.

"Dagenham are a decent side, we know that, but we will be ready down there on Sunday and if results go out way, fantastic, if they don't we will be ready for the play-offs."
