WREXHAM'S title rivals have a game in hand but Luke Young would rather have points on the board at such a crucial stage in the season.

Bryan Hughes' side hold a two point lead at the top of the National League and have 10 games remaining in the push for automatic promotion.

Solihull Moors, Leyton Orient and AFC Fylde have all played a game less and Wrexham's closest challengers would either close the gap or go top with a victory, but Young is in no doubt which position he would rather be in.

"When we went to Bromley we had a chance to close the gap but lost," Young said referring to January's clash at Hayes Lane when Wrexham had a game in hand but failed to make the most of it.

"You would 100 per cent rather have points on the board than games in hand.

"You don't want to be chasing teams down at this stage of the season because you know that any slip up, if we capitalise on a slip-up we are going to go a few more points clear.

"We have just got to take each game as it comes."

Wrexham are currently the team to catch and while Young insists there is still a long way to go in the title race, he wants to keep it that way.

"Obviously the other teams have games in hand which we can't have an affect on," said Young.

"All we can affect is what we do and if we keep winning games and keep picking up points, then it is down to the other teams to try and catch us rather than us trying to catch them.

"We are sitting proudly at the top of the table at the minute but it is not a foregone conclusion, there is still a long way to go.

"Anything can happen between now and the end of the season, we have just got to make sure we concentrate on ourselves and we are bang in there come the end of the season."

Saturday's top of the table clash between Wrexham and Orient at Brisbane Road could have a huge bearing on the title.

It is an eagerly awaited contest being screened live by BT Sport and Young says Wrexham, already beaten twice this season by Orient, head to the capital looking to pick up at least a point to prevent the O's from stealing a march.

"You want to play in these big games," said Young.

"We are sitting top of the league and they are chasing us down so hopefully it bodes well for an exciting game.

"We are going there full of confidence, our away form in the last month has been good and we have picked up some good results.

"It is going to be a tight game but we will go there and try and get a result.

"Whether we come away with three points or one point, if we gain something from the game it sets us up nicely going forward.

"We have just got to try and keep them at arms length as much as we can."

Young helped Wrexham extend the unbeaten run by delivering the cross that was converted by Akil Wright as Wrexham secured a hard-fought 1-0 win over Chesterfield on Saturday.

With four goals and a number of assists to his name, Young stressed the importance of contributing in the final third.

"As a midfielder you get judged on how many goals you score, how many assists you get and what you do with the ball," said Young.

"When you chip in with goals every now and again as a midfielder it gives you a bit of confidence and it gives you a boost, and it keeps people looking over their shoulders at you.

"To set up a goal is just as important."

On the goal, Young added: "The gaffer said at half-time don't worry about picking somebody out in the box, just put it into an area.

"I only had one thing on my mind and that was to try and put the ball into an area and cause them a problem.

"Thankfully it landed right on top of Akil's head. It was a great run into the box and a good finish.

"It was nice to set-up the goal for Akil, who has been very good lately and been in scoring positions, and it was nice to get a win to keep the unbeaten run going and keep us top of the league."
