GRAHAM BARROW hopes Wrexham make the most of their "timely" break and pick up where they left off against Dagenham and Redbridge.

The Reds weren't in action on Saturday as the game against Boreham Wood at Meadow Park was postponed because of the wintry weather.

Barrow gave his players the weekend off and he hopes they reap the benefits when Wrexham, who beat Maidenhead 1-0 in their last outing to end a run of five straight defeats without scoring, aim to make it two wins in a row against the Daggers at The Racecourse.

"It is almost like a timely break," said Barrow.

"It was difficult last week in training, we only really got two good sessions in.

"The break sometimes almost revitalises players, we won the last game and everybody was bubbly last week so we should see the benefits of the game being off."

Wrexham remain fifth in the table, four points behind National League leaders Leyton Orient, and Barrow was pleased to avoid a wasted trip to Boreham Wood as the Reds hadn't set off for an overnight stop when the game was called off.

"The most important thing is we didn't travel down there," said Barrow.

"We stalled a bit and sat on the motorway waiting for the referee to come back to us.

"The players had the Saturday and Sunday off so they should be fine, they should be buzzing, and they seem to be quite lively.

"We haven't lost anything, it is just disappointing because we will have to go down there on a Tuesday night which is not always ideal but as long as we arrange it for a date that suits us, we will be fine."

The Wrexham players returned to training yesterday and were told to expect a tough session.

"They were told that we will be straight into it on Monday morning. It is not going to be a recovery day like it is these days for the ones who have played on the Saturday," added Barrow.

"They will be straight into work. In some respects it is a welcome chance to work from Monday onwards on the next game.

"We have got a week's work on the home game and hopefully we can maintain that form."
