LUKE YOUNG won't press any panic buttons and insists Wrexham have not become a bad team overnight.

The seven-game unbeaten run in League Two came to a shuddering halt as Phil Parkinson's men were thrashed 5-0 by Stockport County at Edgeley Park on Saturday.

It was the third time in nine league games that Wrexham have conceded five goals and captain Young admits there a lot of things to work on.

But the midfielder says the Reds, now seventh in the table and five points behind leaders Notts County, have shown they can handle life in a higher division and admits Saturday's home match against Crewe Alexandra can't come round quick enough.

"We are in this league for a reason and we went on an unbeaten run for a reason," said Young.

"We don't just turn into bad players after one performance or turn into a bad team after one performance.

"Even when you win a game you learn from it, we have got to learn from it even more so now and rectify what we can do better. 

"Get back to doing the basics which ultimately gets us results.

"It is not a case of going back to square one because that's the wrong way of looking at it.

"We have just got to take a moment, take a breath, not dwell on this result too much but understand what we have got to put right and focus on Crewe.

"We want the game to come round quicker than it will do but we have got a week's worth of hard work in training and we will be chomping at the bit to go again next weekend."

Wrexham were promoted as National League champions following a record-breaking 2022-23 campaign and Young added: "Before Stockport, we were slowly adapting to it and slowly finding our feet.

"This is obviously a step back in terms of performance and result, and another wake-up call to say you have got to be on it from minute one until the final minute, however long the games are nowadays.

"The step-up, you can definitely notice the standard has gone up but our standard has gone up, we have had to raise our game.

"This was a bad day at the office, one of those off days."
