PHIL PARKINSON wants his side to pick up where they left off against Halifax Town at The Racecourse this evening.

Second placed Wrexham go into the National League clash on the back of a 1-1 draw with Boreham Wood in Saturday's top of the table showdown.

The Wood led at the break but the Reds produced a superb second half performance when they were a huge attacking threat and clinched a deserved point thanks to Aaron Hayden's equaliser.

Parkinson is looking forward to a run of four successive home games, with the next three in the league before Oldham Athletic are the visitors for an FA Cup first round tie.

And the Reds' boss says his players will relish the clash with Halifax following their brilliant display in the second period at the weekend.

"We are going to be on the front foot, we are going to be aggressive and we are going to put the opposition under pressure," said Parkinson.

"That is how we are going to approach these games, starting on Tuesday.

"We have got to take them one at a time, starting with Halifax.

"I always say to the lads in the dressing room that the performance has always got to reflect what the club is about; the honesty and the hard work, and you have got to have quality to go with that.

"After that second half display, the lads will be itching to get back out there on Tuesday.

"We have got to be ready to go again. There is nothing given to you in any division and we have got to make sure we are ready to fight tooth and nail for those points, and we will be."

Parkinson felt it was vital that his side went into the run of home matches with something to show for their efforts against Boreham Wood.

Wrexham previously lost top of the table encounters with Chesterfield and Notts County and although they never won at Meadow Park, the Reds' boss was satisfied with a point.

"With these home games coming up, we always knew Boreham Wood was a very important game," said Parkinson.

"The aim was to win but we have got a point and I think it is a decent point on the road.

"I think there were a lot of psychological factors in play; losing to Chesterfield and Notts County when we should have won the game with the chances we had.

"It was important that we didn't make that three. Obviously they got their goal but I thought we were tighter out of possession and we restricted them to very little.

"The mentality was strong and that is what we need. I believe the draw will lift us confidence-wise."
