LUKE YOUNG says it is important Wrexham don't lose belief after seeing the promotion challenge hit the skids.

The Reds suffered a third successive league defeat against Bromley on Tuesday as Graham Barrow's side lost 2-0 at Hayes Lane to remain four points behind leaders Leyton Orient.

The hat-trick of reversals came after Wrexham thrashed title rivals Salford City 5-1 on Boxing Day and thrashed high-flying Solihull but Young insists the Reds have not become a bad side overnight.

"We had a half decent Christmas and we have put ourselves in a good position through hard work," said Young.

"We have got to realise that we got into the position that we are in because we are a good side.

"We have got to keep believing, stay upbeat and positive, and and hopefully we will bounce back."

Young is adamant Wrexham will come through the barren run and get the promotion challenge back on track.

"It is a disappointing result and three losses on the bounce isn't good," said Young.

"We are going through a little bit of a sticky patch that we haven't been through all season.

"Every time we have had a set-back we have always come back.

"We will keep working hard and I have no doubt we will come out the other side of it."

Wrexham failed to score in the three defeats and Young admits the Reds need to create more chances and start taking them.

"You can't go through a whole season playing unbelievable football and getting unbelievable results," said Young.

"There are going to be times when results aren't going for you and it is how you react from that.

"I have no doubt we will react from it positively but we have got to start being more ruthless up top and taking our chances when we are on top, and creating a little bit more.

"We have come off another defeat, we have just got to pick ourselves up and go again."

Young admits Wrexham were poor against mid-table Bromley and is looking to bounce back in today's FA Trophy first round tie against Leyton Orient at The Racecourse.

"After the disappointing result on Saturday we wanted to put it right at Bromley," said Young.

"We started the game alright and looked like we were going to be a bit of a threat but for some reason it just petered out and we couldn't really get that flowing football going that we have been used to.

"When they scored two goals and go in at half-time 2-0 up, it is definitely not game over but it is difficult to come back from.

"We have got to try and put it right with the Trophy game and then it back end of the season where it really turns up the heat."

Although he would rather be back in league action and make amends for the poor recent form, Young is stilll eager to progress in the Trophy.

"Of course you want a league game because you want to put it right," added Young.

"But it is a cup competition, we are back at home, we have just got to try and get a little bit of confidence back and believe that we are a good side, which we are."
