THE race for automatic promotion goes down to the final weekend of the National League season and Christian Dibble says Wrexham will thrive on the pressure.

Sunday’s 3-0 win against Stockport County enabled Wrexham to take over as leaders on goal difference, although the Hatters beat Torquay 1-0 last night in their game in hand and returned to the top with a three point advantage.

Wrexham head to play-off hopefuls Dagenham and Redbridge for their final fixture on Sunday, with Stockport home to high-flying Halifax Town, and both teams remain in title contention.

But rather than be nervous heading into a huge match, Dibble is embracing the position Wrexham find themselves in.

“There’s a lot of pressure riding on it but I don’t really see it amongst the lads at the moment,” said Dibble.

“You wouldn’t be a footballer if you couldn’t take the pressure, and everyone gets a different type of pressure. People might think it was pressure playing in front of 10,000 people on Sunday.

“You saw cool heads against Stockport; I know it was a slow start but we won the game 3-0.

“We are all excited for it more than anything, we are going into the game all positive.

“All we can do is win and then see what happens.”

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

It’s not a bad fall-back to have but Dibble would love to finish the job off at Victoria Road.

“If it is the play-offs we know we will have home advantage in the semi-final if we miss out on winning the league," said Dibble.

“We'd have that little bit of an advantage, the home crowd has been absolutely fantastic, but I would love to go up on Sunday.

“That’s what we all want, we just need to focus on the task ahead and that is beating Dagenham.”

Dibble knows goal difference could play a huge part in the destiny of the title come 5pm on Sunday.

“We will go there and try to score as many goals as we can and hopefully keep a clean sheet as well because we know it might go down to goal difference,” said Dibble.

“We have just got to go and do the job on Sunday and see where it takes us when the final whistle goes.

“We have only got one thing on our mind and that it is to win the game. That is all we want.”

Finding the back of the net has not been a problem with Wrexham the highest scorers in the division with 91 goals and Dibble knows the Reds don’t just rely on strike duo Paul Mullin and Ollie Palmer.

He added: “Ninety one goals this season is great.

“It is not just the strikers who have been scoring for us, midfielders and defenders have scored and how many goals have we scored from set-pieces?

“We know we can score in many different ways and we are going to try and score as many as we can on Sunday because we might need to do that.”
