FORGET the past is Bryan Hughes' message as Wrexham aim to get the promotion challenge back on track.

Wrexham go into today's game against Ebbsfleet on the back of three defeats in their last four league outings.

The latest loss came last Saturday at Hartlepool when Wrexham created few chances and were undone by a first half penalty.

But Hughes is focussed on the future and he has set his sights on beginning the crucial final six games with a positive result at Stonebridge Road.

"I class myself as a positive manager and I will try and pick any positives I can out of the worst of performances," said Hughes.

"It is about us not dwelling on the past too much, certainly from Saturday's game.

"Obviously you have to reflect and you have put to things right but it is about moving forward now.

"We haven't got time to feel sorry for ourselves, we have got to put things right and go into the game and try and lift the spirits and the confidence.

"Go and put in a performance and get the right result.

“Everyone was disappointed on Saturday, no more than myself, but we will go again.”

Wrexham are four points behind leaders Leyton Orient, who also have two games in hand, but Hughes is more concerned about his side.

"We have just got to keep doing what we are doing, try and keep picking the points up and if top spot isn't going to be for us, we have got to nullify a play-off place and give us something to fight for," added Hughes.
