WREXHAM find themselves in the relegation zone going into tonight's clash against AFC Fylde at Mill Farm but Luke Young insists he and his team-mates are up for the fight and determined to take the Reds out of trouble.

Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Aldershot leaves Wrexham without a win in seven league games and they dropped into the bottom four as a result of Fylde's win against Eastleigh.

It is not the position that Wrexham expected to find themselves in after reaching the play-offs last season and the encouraging start they made to the current campaign but Young retains belief that there are better times ahead.

"It is going to be a tough game away from home," said Young. "The form we are in and the position we are in, it is not going to be easy.

"But we have got to dig deep, we have got to believe in each other because we are the only ones that can get ourselves out of it.

"I have no doubt with the quality that we have got in the squad, as soon as it clicks then hopefully we will start climbing up the table.

"Everybody wants to do well for everybody involved with the club and yourself individually.

"The manager is under a little bit of pressure, as are the players; obviously he picks the team and the formation but us as players have got to take responsibility because we are the ones who can affect what happens on the pitch."

Missed chances proved costly on Saturday as fellow strugglers Aldershot scored the winner in the fourth minute of injury time and Young admits Wrexham should have gone ahead before that late sucker-punch.

"To concede a goal right at the end is a bit of a killer," said Young. "It sums up the way our season is going at the minute.

"We had chances to win the game - I should have scored midway through the second half when I hit it over the bar - and on another day we could have scored two or three.

"But how many times have we said that this season?

"It doesn't seem to be falling for us at the minute; we are having good chances but it is not happening for us."

Young admits a point away from home would not have been a bad result but he is adamant that Wrexham won't change their ways and that they go into every game looking to win it.

"We have got to be a little bit more ugly at times just to see out a game, especially away from home. A point on the road, wherever you play, is never a bad thing," added Young.

"Maybe, with the way it was going, we should have shut up shop and come away with a point but we want to win games of football and to concede as late on as we did is sickening.

"We saw it as a really big opportunity to win and start climbing up the table but unfortunately it hasn't happened for us."

Fylde are two points ahead of Wrexham in 19th place after beating Eastleigh and Reds boss Bryan Hughes expects both teams to improve their lowly league positions.

“It just shows how competitive this league can be,” said Hughes.

“Chesterfield are down there, Solihull are picking up like everyone expected them to.

“It is a strange one but we are capable of going on a winning run and climbing this league.

“I am sure Fylde are saying the same; Solihull and Chesterfield, they are probably all thinking the same. But it is alright thinking it, we need to produce it now.

“We have got to rally the troops, get that passion and determination into them and put a real positive performance in.”

Centre-back Jake Lawlor is available tonight after completing a four game ban while Hughes will check on Rob Lainton, JJ Hooper and Leighton McIntosh.
