HERE we go again.

It’s time for another Reds white-knuckle journey on the play-off roller-coaster - a ride that’s made Wrexham supporters sick every time they’ve jumped on in the last 30 years.

The Reds’ promotion chances went west in London’s East End in 1989, Luton Town downed Wrexham twice in the space of two years in 2010 and then there was the woe of Wembley six years ago where Newport County landed the bounty of a place back in the Football League.

Surely the club’s luck has to change at some point and what better place to do it at Wrexham Football Club’s spiritual home, The Racecourse Ground.

Wrexham boast the best home record in non-league’s top division and that makes them favourites to beat Eastleigh in tonight’s fourth versus seventh play-off eliminator.

Despite having the indefensible distraction of having three different managers in the space of three months this season, Wrexham have made it to the play-offs - something they’ve not achieved since reaching the final back in 2013.

Wrexham’s board of directors should have learned from the Dean Keates experience when he walked out on the club that gave him his first chance in management.

Sam Ricketts then did the same, slithering off to Shrewsbury Town in the build-up to the club’s biggest game of the season - a second round FA Cup clash at home to Newport County.

Wrexham drew the first game when the board bravely banned boss Ricketts from The Racecourse. Graham Barrow went from right hand man to top man but the Reds went out of the FA Cup 4-0 in a Rodney Parade romp for a team from South Wales that love to stick the boot in on Wrexham.

If bursting their Wembley promotion bubble in that all-Wales Wembley showdown in 2013 wasn’t enough, Newport nailed two money-spinning FA Cup home ties against Leicester City and Manchester City.

Back at The Racecourse, Barrow was wheeled in and out again with the club going back to the past to bring in Bryan Hughes and Brian Flynn as the new management double act.

The duo had a dream start taking the Reds to top spot. And despite a little March wobble, rookie boss Hughes and old hand Flynn have led Wrexham to part one of what could be an exciting, end-of-season trilogy.

And that has given Reds’ fans something to celebrate and hopefully they’ll have plenty to shout about when the clock strikes nine tonight.

While inspirational captain Shaun Pearson and clean-sheet keeper king Rob Lainton took the plaudits at Sunday’s player of the season awards, it’s the fans that should be rewarded with a top performance that will bring down the Eastleigh Spitfires.

The supporters have kept on coming through the turnstiles and they’ll be paying the full whack tonight in the hope of making it through to part two of the play-off ride at big-spending Salford City on Sunday.

The crowd did dip below the 4,000 mark on Saturday and it would have been lovely for The Racecourse to be packed to the rafters just like it was for last month’s Wales v Trinidad international.

More than 10,000 watched Ryan Giggs’ B team take on Dennis Lawrence’s Soca Warriors and that brought back memories of one of the best Wrexham performances I’ve seen over the years - and unbelievably it wasn’t one from that sensational 1977/78 Division Three title-winning side.

Twenty four hours after 14,150 watched Wales draw 1-1 with Czechoslovakia in a European Championship qualifier on April 30 1987, Dixie McNeil’s Wrexham entertained (and entertain they did) Southend in a 4-0 Racecourse romp.

Jim Steel and Steve Charles scored doubles in a 4-0 win where Wrexham were outstanding in from of only 935 Reds diehards.

There’ll be a few more than that watching this evening and let’s hope they get treated to one of those very special nights under the lights at the club’s spiritual Racecourse home.
