BRYAN HUGHES is targeting another home win tomorrow but the Wrexham boss is expecting a difficult clash against a Barnet side that he expects to be challenging for promotion this season.

The Reds, who have won their opening two matches at The Racecourse, have taken eight points from their first five games - an identical record to Barnet.

But although Hughes rates the Bees highly, he wants Wrexham to seize the initiative.

"Teams will come here and try and stifle us," said Hughes.

"It is going to be a tough game against Barnet. They have got an identical record to us in the start of the season.

"I think Barnet will be one of the teams that are right up there come the end of the season.

"They are a good team with good players and they look to try and play so I'm sure they will come and try and enjoy themselves at The Racecourse on our big pitch.

"We have got to be ready and be wary of their threats which we will be, and hopefully take the game to them."

Wrexham, backed by 1,600 fans for Sunday's 1-1 draw at Notts County, have attracted crowds of over 5,500 for the opening two homes games.

Hughes praised supporters for their fantastic backing and he is looking forward to another big crowd against Barnet.

"Our form is good at The Racecourse and hopefully we will have another good crowd in," said Hughes.

"They made a big difference in the last home game to get us over the line, especially when we went down to 10 men.

"It is good to come back home. We got a good point at Notts County again backed by a real healthy crowd; it was fantastic support.

"We have had a steady start with two wins, two draws and a defeat, so we are looking to keep building."
