REECE HALL-JOHNSON doesn’t want the good work to waste as Wrexham prepare for its biggest game of the season.

Despite being 11 points behind Stockport County in March, Phil Parkinson’s side took the National League title race down to the final weekend of the regular season before having to settle for runners-up spot.

Despite missing out on the title, Wrexham avoided a play-off eliminator tie and will face Grimsby at The Racecourse in the semi-final on Saturday.

The promotion dream is still alive and Hall-Johnson wants the Reds to make the most of the position they find themselves in, and make up for Sunday’s disappointing 1-0 defeat to Bromley in the FA Trophy at Wembley.

“We have just got to dust ourselves down and go again. We have done that all season,” said Hall-Johnson.

“The aim is to go again and get promoted.

“We have worked really hard all season to get to this point and our aim is to not let it slip, not to let it go.

“We will work hard in training this week and come out flying on Saturday.”

The winners will advance to the play-off final at West Ham United’ London Stadium on Sunday June 5.

Although Hall-Johnson was disappointed not to lift silverware at Wembley, the defender says winning on Saturday to stand 90 minutes away from a return to the Football League - and then finish the job off in the play-off final - would make up for the cup loss.

“We have hopefully got two massive games coming up and that is the most important thing, getting out of this league and getting promoted,” said Hall-Johnson.

“It was really disappointing but if somebody said to me we lost the final but got promoted, I think fans and players would take that.

“We have just got to get our head down and make sure we make that happen.”

More than 20,000 Wrexham fans saw their side produce a below par performance in the showpiece, with Bromley striker Michael Cheek’s 64th minute goal separating the sides.

The Reds lacked an end product and Hall-Johnson, who appeared as a second half substitute, thanked supporters for their brilliant backing on the big stage.

“The fans came in their thousands and they were brilliant all game,” said Hall-Johnson.

“It was fantastic to see them come down here and cheer us on at Wembley but obviously disappointing not to lift the trophy.

“It was a massive occasion and there wasn’t that last bit of quality but the boys never gave up, they gave everything to the end like they have done all season.

“It was unfortunate not to get the goal at the end to take it into extra-time.

“It seemed from the beginning that one goal might win it and it did; you have just got to say congratulations to Bromley but hopefully we get promoted.”
