THE Racecourse has been a fortress this season and Mark Carrington wants to keep it that way in Saturday's top of the table clash.

Wrexham are unbeaten at home, winning seven and drawing three of their 10 homes games to help the Reds emerge as promotion contenders.

Sam Ricketts' side face arguably their biggest test to date when they host leaders Leyton Orient on Saturday, with the U's unbeaten on their travels and one point ahead of third placed Wrexham.

But Carrington, the longest serving player in the squad, is looking to preserve the impressive home record and take points off their rivals in front of another healthy crowd.

"It is a massive game," said Carrington.

"Obviously they are flying and we are flying, and we want to make sure that we take some points off them.

"They are coming to our place and we want to make sure that we are the ones that come out on top.

"Both teams are going well but we have made The Racecourse a fortress this year where teams don't want to come to.

"Hopefully Saturday we keep that up, hopefully the fans will come here and get behind us like they have been doing and get the atmosphere up.

"Hopefully we will give them something to shout about."

Wrexham are also in league action at Barrow on Tuesday before entertaining Newport County in the second round of the FA Cup next weekend.

But with his side unbeaten in 11 games, Carrington is just focussed on trying to pick up another win against Orient.

"Barrow will be another tough game, it is a hard place to go," said Carrington.

"But first and foremost we have got to look to Saturday and make sure we pick up the three points before we start looking at anything else."

Carrington certainly isn't getting side-tracked by the upcoming cup tie against Newport when Wrexham will aim to reach the third round for the first time since the 2014-15 season.

"The league is our bread and butter and we will make sure that we are fully focussed on that," said Carrington.

"The cup is just an added bonus on the side and we just take one game at a time.

"Every game we play in, as they come we will take them on and try and beat them."
