GRAHAM BARROW wants Wrexham to capitalise on their game in hand against Bromley tonight and close the gap on leaders Leyton Orient.

Wrexham go into the clash at Hayes Lane on the back of two defeats, the latest a 1-0 home loss against Dover Athletic which leaves the third placed Reds four points behind Orient.

Barrow refuses to press the panic button with Wrexham among the frontrunners and their position will be even healthier if they pick up a first win of 2019 against Bromley.

"Not from me but there was euphoria when we beat Salford 5-1 and then Solihull," said Barrow.

"I have just noticed the last couple of games a few bad habits have crept in that we need to iron out for Bromley and we will be fine.

"It is not like a panic situation, it is more look at the league table, look at the reality of it all, and we have got a heck of a lot to play for.

"Obviously disappointed Saturday but Jussi Jaaskelainen said when Orient beat us in November we were seven points behind them so we are in a better position now, and we could be in an even better position tonight.

"It is still wide open. We have had two defeats but nothing has hardly changed."

Mid-table Bromley beat high-flying AFC Fylde 3-2 at the weekend to make it three wins in a row but Barrow is just focussed on his side ending the mini-blip.

"Every time we play someone they seem to be on an unbeaten run," said Barrow.

"Bromley beat Fylde on Saturday and it is not going to be an easy task.

"From now on in we have to pay respect to the opposition but we have got to have a look at ourselves and if we are right, doing the basics right, then we usually come out on top."

This is the last midweek game until March and Barrow believes fans will see the best of Wrexham when they get back to just playing Saturday matches.

"We are a better team when there is preparation time," said Barrow.

"After this we are back to Saturday to Saturday, which I feel much more comfortable with.

"The turnaround on games with Saturday to Tuesday, you try to give it the same preparation but it is almost impossible so hopefully when we get back to that, I think you will see the best of us."

Barrow will be without Brad Walker who has returned to Crewe Alexandra following a successful loan spell.

Walker is attracting interest from a number of clubs, including Sam Rickett's Shrewsbury, but Barrow still hopes to sign the midfielder on loan, even if he moves elsewhere, because he has already played for two teams this season.

"We have to wait and see what materialises," said Barrow.

"I know there is quite a bit of interest in him but there is also an opportunity for him here because he can't play for another club.

"If he went to another club, hopefully we would be first in the queue to get him back."

Barrow admits players could be allowed to leave The Racecourse but only when he has bolstered his squad.

"We still need to strengthen first," added Barrow.

"We still need Walker or a midfield player, and with Manny Smith's operation we possibly need cover at centre-back.

"If I get that then people may leave the club but it is when we want to do it."
