A SELL-OUT crowd saw Wales play their first full-international at The Racecourse in 11 years and Bryan Hughes hopes fans turn up in their numbers to boost Wrexham's promotion challenge going down the final straight.

Ryan Giggs' Wales beat Trinidad and Tobago 1-0 in front of more than 10,300 supporters in Wednesday's friendly staged at the oldest international stadium.

Wrexham, who continue their National League promotion challenge at Hartlepool today, have seven games remaining in their bid to clinch a place back in the Football League.

Three of those are at home and Wrexham boss Hughes says fan-power can help the Reds get over the line.

"The crowd have been massive for us this year, home and away," said Hughes, with Wrexham boasting an average home attendance of 5,179 and well supported on their travels.

"We need to win our home games and the crowd would have a big part in that.

"They can be our 12th man and they have been in the past.

"Now it is imperative that they can support the team, get right behind the lads and make as much noise as they can and try and get us over that final hurdle."

Hughes hopes more international matches are staged at The Racecourse in the future.

"It was great to have Wales here," added Hughes.

"The national team coming to Wrexham, that is what it is all about.

"Hopefully there will be a lot more in the future, it would be great to have the international games here."
