THE Racecourse is a happy place at the moment and Phil Parkinson wants it to remain that way.

Wrexham go into tomorrow's clash at Accrington Stanley on the back on an 11-game unbeaten run.

As well as climbing up to second in League Two, the in-form Reds have progressed to an FA Cup second round home tie with Yeovil Town and also reached the EFL Trophy knockout stages.

Parkinson rang the changes for last Tuesday's 2-1 win against Port Vale in the final group game and then welcomed back his regulars for the 2-0 league win against Gillingham on Saturday.

The Reds' boss has utilised his squad but regardless of who takes to the pitch, he said winning games is keeping his players in good spirits when they return to the training ground.

"The lads have got a good understanding that it's a squad game," he said.

"Winning against Port Vale gave the training ground a lift on Thursday.

"That performance sets a tone going into training on Thursday and Friday, and then into Saturday's game with Gillingham.

"You can never guarantee wins all the time but the work ethic of the group is absolutely paramount and we are looking to maintain that like we have done over a long, sustained period."

Although Jacob Mendy is away on international duty with Gambia, fellow wing-back James McClean is available along with striker Paul Mullin after the duo completed one-match bans.

Centre-back Aaron Hayden made his comeback from injury against Gillingham and although Jordan Tunnicliffe also returned as a late substitute, the centre-back is likely to miss out at Accrington.

"Unfortunately Jordan has had a bit of a set-back which is a real shame," said Parkinson.
