JAMES JENNINGS admits he was sick of losing games and hopes Wrexham are heading in the right direction again after picking up a first win of 2019.

Wrexham ended a run of five successive defeats without scoring by beating Maidenhead United 1-0 on Saturday to give the promotion challenge a much needed boost.

The fifth placed Reds are only four points behind Leyton Orient going into today's game at Boreham Wood and left-back Jennings hopes it is the start of better things to come over the final three months of the season.

“It comes to a point where you get fed up of losing games,” said Jennings.

“But it is down to us as players to go out there and do it.

“We had to kind of get rid of that fear factor and make sure that we made it happen.

“That win will give the players more confidence and we want to go on a run now.”

Manager Graham Barrow felt his players have handled the pressure brilliantly following the Reds' poor start to the year.

"We have hopefully got over it and now we have to build on that win," said Barrow.

"The players are handling it better than anybody. You'd think they are the ones who feel the pressure most but they don't seem to do, they are in good spirits which is credit to them."
