PHIL PARKINSON hailed his "relentless" Wrexham side for taking the race for the National League crown down to the wire.

Automatic promotion is still up for grabs going into the final day of the season, with the second placed Reds sitting three points behind leaders Stockport with a superior goal difference.

Wrexham, who visit play-off hopefuls Dagenham on Sunday with Stockport at home to high-flying Halifax, trailed their rivals by 11 points in March but Parkinson praised his players for keeping the title dream alive following a superb run of form.

"The lads have been relentless," said Parkinson.

"I go back to the seven successive games at home, the last one was Altrincham and we were relentless in the way we went about our job.

"There was a real ruthless edge about us and that is what we have got to continue.

"There has been an edge about our play, a physicality and an intensity; that is good but we have got to combine that with quality and we have been doing that.

"The aim is to continue it."

Parkinson is looking for one final push in the quest for automatic promotion against the Daggers at Victoria Road.

"Every game has been a big game," said Parkinson.

"We have gone away from home and it has been the home team's cup final with Wrexham coming into town.

"We have got to deal with that, we have got to deal with the intensity of the home team and make sure we are ready for that at Dagenham because they have got something to play for.

"I am sure they are going to start quick but we have got to be ready to not only match that but go above that."
