BRYAN HUGHES expects AFC Fylde to be buoyed a welcome win but he insists Wrexham are more than capable of leaving Mill Farm with a long overdue victory of their own this evening.

Wrexham lost 1-0 at Aldershot on Saturday, the Reds missing a host of chances before conceding a goal deep into injury time, and they are now winless in seven league games.

But although his side dropped into the relegation zone as a result of the defeat and Fylde's success over Eastleigh, Hughes remains upbeat.

"Fylde are in a similar situation to ourselves and they had a healthy win so that will boost their confidence," said Hughes.

"It is going to be a tough game, it always is against Fylde; they are a strong team and were in the play-offs like ourselves last season.

"I am sure they will want to try and keep their momentum going after Saturday's win but from our point of view, we need to try and start building some momentum now.

"We had some good aspects on Saturday with the chances that we created but ultimately we didn't take them.

"We need to start taking them more frequently and start winning games."

Under-fire Hughes admits there is pressure on him following the poor start to the season but he says belief is key to ending the barren run.

"Of course there is pressure, I wouldn't be normal if I didn't feel any pressure," said Hughes.

"It is not nice seeing your team not win in seven games.

"I am trying to give them the belief that they can do it.

"There were certain characteristics in Saturday's performance with the chances we created that the confidence hasn't gone as yet, like it might of.

"I have been in these situations as a player. Once you get into that little bit of a rut and you don't know where the next win is going to come from, it is difficult to get out of them.

"It is about everyone pulling in the right direction, sticking together and believing in each other.

"It might take a freak goal to win a game for us but I'd take that at Fylde."
