Shaun Pearson has labelled Wrexham’s festive period as “potentially season-changing” in the fight against relegation.
Dean Keates’ side play five huge games in the space of a fortnight against teams in and around the fourth bottom Reds who are one point adrift of National League safety.
Wrexham kick-off the run of matches with Saturday’s trip to 19th placed Sutton and the Reds have a double header against basement outfit Chorley on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
In between the Chorley fixtures, Wrexham go to Maidenhead who are only five points above the drop zone before returning to The Racecourse for a home match against Aldershot – the side immediately outside the bottom four – on January 4.
With 15 points up for grabs in a short space of time, Reds captain Pearson admits there is a lot riding on the Christmas period.
“It is huge and it could be season-turning for us with so many games in a short period of space,” said Pearson.
“If we were to win four out of the five games, or all five games, then that is potentially season-changing for you.”
