KEVIN ROBERTS has welcomed Leyton Orient's run in the FA Trophy but the defender knows Wrexham need to take care of their own business in the race for the National League title.

Wrexham go into Saturday's game against Dagenham and Redbridge at The Racecourse sitting four points behind Orient, who have advanced to the quarter-finals of the Trophy.

The battle for automatic promotion is closely contested with Salford City, Solihull Moors and AFC Fylde all within one point of fifth placed Wrexham, with 15 games remaining.

Although Orient will have to contend with a congested fixture list the longer they are in the cup, Roberts is focussed on Wrexham maintaining their own challenge.

"There are probably five teams looking at it thinking they can win the league," said Roberts.

"Orient won their FA Trophy game as well so that is more games for them.

"I am happy with that. They can go all the way in that if they want, I am not too fussed.

"I do think it will benefit us if they keep going through but the main thing is us doing our job and keep putting the pressure on."

Orient remain the team to catch but is promises to be an exciting final three months of the season with so many teams in the hunt for the one automatic promotion place.

"To be fair to Orient I think they have been top for a while now, they have kept a little gap since December," said Roberts.

"But with a few teams chasing them down, everyone just wants to put some pressure on.

"That is why it is so important to keep your winning your games because you are not just chasing one team.

"There are another four or five teams. Not everyone is going to lose, you are going to get three or four teams winning every week so you have got to make sure you are one of them."

Wrexham, whose game at Boreham Wood on Saturday was postponed because of the wintry weather, will aim to make it two wins in a row this weekend.

The Reds beat Maidenhead 1-0 in their last outing to end a run of five successive defeats without scoring and Roberts wants to build on that result.

"We have just got to make the most of the game being off," said Roberts.

"There weren't many games on so we have got to put it to the back of our minds and look forward to Saturday.

"No one has pulled away from us so we have just got to focus on Dagenham and try to get three points.

"It is a huge game. We have just got to keep putting points on the board and get as close as we can to the top.

"We are in the play-offs at the minute but the aim is to try and get as close as we can to the top of the league.

"Back to back home wins would be a confidence boost after a tricky period.

"Dagenham have improved since we played them so it will be a difficult game."

Roberts would have been a doubt at Boreham Wood due to a calf problem but hopes to be available to face the Daggers.

"From a selfish point of view the game being off was probably a good thing because I don't like missing games," added Roberts.

"I should be available on Saturday hopefully."
