BRYAN HUGHES says Wrexham won't be fazed by an early kick-off in tomorrow's top of table clash with Leyton Orient and his players will be raring to go.

Wrexham hold a two point lead at the National League summit over second placed Leyton Orient, who have a game in hand, going into their hugely anticipated match at Brisbane Road.

The fixture has been selected for live television coverage by BT Sport and brought forward to a lunch-time kick-off but Hughes insists his side will be ready for battle.

"Your preparation on matchday is slightly different because you are few hours earlier," said Hughes. "I don't think too many will be having breakfast!

"We will train, stay overnight, have a pre-match meal on the morning and get them energised ready for the 12.35pm kick-off.

"I think sometimes with 12.35pm kick-offs, they can either be a bit of a stalemate to start with or they can be all guns blazing.

"Sometimes you get games that start really brightly, are end to end and you get a few goals.

"But we will be prepared, we will plan and we will go there full of confidence."

Wrexham haven't lost in five games under Hughes and Orient have won back to back away games this week to reignite their title challenge following an inconsistent spell.

"It is live on TV and you have got the top two teams in the league going head to head," said Hughes.

"It is going to be an interesting battle.

"Orient got a good result at Barrow so they will be full of confidence like we are and it will be an entertaining game."

There is a real feel-good factor around The Racecourse with Wrexham in the promotion shake-up and Hughes, whose side have 10 games remaining, feels it is rubbing off on the players.

"When you look at the league table and we are sitting proudly top of it, there is going to be an air of excitement all around the place," added Hughes.

"That is a good thing and you have got to use that now as a momentum to take forward into the next few games, and we have done that in the games.

"We have pushed ourselves to our limits, we are playing well, we are playing with loads of confidence now and we are starting to get people into the right areas where we can score goals which is important for me."
