PHIL PARKINSON wants to be celebrating automatic promotion success come 5pm on Sunday but the Wrexham boss insists the Reds will not let their heads drop if they have to go through the play-offs.

Last weekend's brilliant 3-0 win against Stockport County prevented Wrexham's title rivals from clinching a return to the Football League but the Hatters returned to the top of the table by beating Torquay 1-0 in Wednesday's game in hand.

Wrexham go into their final fixture at play-off hopefuls Dagenham sitting three points behind Stockport, who entertain fourth placed Halifax Town in their last match, but the Reds have a superior goal difference.

A Reds' win won't be enough to clinch the title if Stockport pick-up at least a point in their game but Parkinson says his side will keep going to the very end in a bid to realise the promotion dream, even if that means going the play-off route.

"We wanted to go to the last game with something to play for and we have," said Parkinson, who also has an FA Trophy final against Bromley at Wembley to look forward to the weekend after next.

"We did the job against Stockport and we go into Sunday's game with a chance.

"Let's see where it takes us, that is all we can do.

"There are certain things which are out of our control but we know what we have got to do on Sunday and we will be giving absolutely everything to try and achieve that.

"It is doesn't work out, we maintain the standards and form we have set throughout the season, and take into Wembley and the play-offs.

"II have said all along that the mindset of everybody is that we go to the last minute of the play-off final, and that is what we are ready to do.

"If it comes before that then fantastic but we have got to be physically and mentally prepared to go right to the wire, and we will be. I have no doubt about that."

Parkinson is focussed on Wrexham taking care of their own business against Dagenham but events at Stockport will filter through at Victoria Road.

"When it comes to this stage of the season, obviously we will be aware of the score," added Parkinson.

"Five or six games to go, nothing could change what we were going to do on the pitch whatever other teams were doing but this may be different."
