WREXHAM head to Maidstone United on their best run of the season but Shaun Pearson insists the Reds cannot be content being unbeaten in 10 games.

Sam Ricketts' side last tasted defeat when they lost 3-0 at Sutton United on September 22 and they go into the clash at The Gallagher Stadium sitting top of the National League.

Although pleased with the run Wrexham are on, captain Pearson has urged no let-up and wants three points against the Stones to remain as leaders.

"We want to keep it going," said Pearson. "You want to make 10 unbeaten into 11, 12, 13, 14 and make into a proper, real long unbeaten run.

"That's what we'll be looking to do and taking it a game at a time, starting at Maidstone.

"We want to get a win and hopefully keep ourselves on top of the league."

Wrexham reached the second round of the FA Cup following Sunday's 2-0 win at Weston-super-Mare FA Cup but Pearson is focussed on the league and leaving Maidstone with a positive result ahead of next week's top of the table home match with Leyton Orient.

"This is our bread and butter," said Pearson.

"We are all enjoying the cup run but the league is the one that is most important to us and hopefully we can get another win at Maidstone.

"That will be set us up nicely for the game against Leyton Orient."

Pearson feels the Wrexham squad is well-equipped to maintain the promotion challenge in the coming months and not fall away like the Reds did last season.

"There is definitely momentum here," said Pearson.

"We spoke about that last year and it fell off a little bit, I'm not sure we had quite a big enough squad or enough quality throughout the whole of the squad like we have this year.

"Lads come out and it doesn't really affect the team whereas if we lost one or two last year it affected us quite a bit.

"Hopefully that can bode well going into the second half of the season, a couple of loans will be up so hopefully the gaffer will be able to either renew them or bring replacements in.

"We look forward to hopefully challenging right at the very top."

Pearson has urged fans to "enjoy" being leaders but insists their backing will be just as vital when Wrexham find the going tough in matches.

"They have got to enjoy it," said Pearson. "It is not very often you are top of the league in your career or as a football club.

"There are only a few spots available at the top of the league so you have got to enjoy it when you are, don't take it for granted.

"Hopefully when we need them they will stick by us like they have done and they will roar us on when we are 1-0 down to turn games like that around."

Although the promotion challenge is in the forefront of Pearson's mind, he is relishing the FA Cup second round home tie against League Two Newport County.

"It is an exciting tie, an all-Welsh tie, and it is a game we will be looking forward to," added Pearson.

"If you'd have given us the option we'd have wanted a home tie, that's what we have got so we have to be pleased with that."
