STUART BEAVON says results are more important than performances at such a vital stage of the season.

Manager Bryan Hughes admits Wrexham weren't at their best against Chesterfield at The Racecourse on Saturday but the Reds ground out a 1-0 victory to remain National League leaders.

Wrexham have 10 games left in the race for automatic promotion and Beavon admits results are all that matter.

"It is the business end of the season now and we need to go into every game as confident as we are now," said Beavon.

"We need to make sure that we are at our best.

"Games now are not going to be pretty but it is about getting the win."

Wrexham visit Leyton Orient for a top of the table clash on Saturday and Beavon wants to leave Brisbane Road with the Reds still leading the way.

"There are still 10 games to go," said Beavon. "It is another important game and we are fully aware that they are up there with us.

"We obviously want to stay where we are so we will be out to try and get the right result.

"Every game is a cup final so we need to prepare right and make sure we go out there and perform like it."

Wrexham have already suffered two home defeats this season against Orient who won November's league clash 2-0 and also knocked the Reds out of the FA Trophy in January.

But with Wrexham unbeaten in six games, Beavon insists the players make the trip high on confidence.

"We have lost twice already here so we know how good they are and it is going to be tough," said Beavon.

"We need to make sure we are right and we go there as a confident team.

"The boys are full of confidence at the minute. I know we are top of the league but there is not too much talk about it at the minute which helps us.

"We don't need to talk about it. There are 10 games to go and anything can happen.

"We are going along nicely, full of confidence and performing well at the minute, and enjoying it."

Beavon was delighted to return to the starting XI against Chesterfield after missing two games through illness. "I was a bit surprised to be honest but really pleased to get back in and help the team get three points," added Beavon.

"Unfortunately I missed a couple of games but I worked hard the week after to get myself right and I felt good at the weekend."
