BEN TOLLITT would love a repeat of the atmosphere he experienced on his Wrexham debut when the Reds continue their promotion challenge against Chesterfield at The Racecourse today.

The winger, on loan from Tranmere Rovers, came off the substitutes bench and scored as Wrexham thrashed title rivals Salford City 5-1 at home on Boxing Day in front of 8,283 fans.

Another bumper crowd is expected when league leaders Wrexham host Chesterfield and Tollitt can't wait.

"I think people underestimate how much the support does actually help because it is actually a bit of a boost," said Tollitt.

"To get anything along the lines of the Salford game would be brilliant, the fact there could be even more people is great.

"It was a brilliant atmosphere against Salford, my first game.

"For this league it is too good - you wouldn't expect that many fans to come in.

"There are not many other clubs in this league that could do that so fair play to the fans."

Wrexham hold a two point lead at the summit and although the chasing pack have games in hand, Tollitt prefers to be in the Reds' position.

"I think it is always better to have the points on the board than be chasing the points like the other teams are now," added Tollitt.

"It is up to them to win to try and overtake us.

"We have just got to carry on doing what we are doing. The team is playing well and we haven't lost yet under the new manager so if we can keep that up then that will be good."
