Kevin Roberts believes securing a play-off place will ease the pressure on Wrexham but the defender is still setting his sights on a top-three finish, The Leader report.
The Reds go into tomorrow’s game against Barnet sitting fifth in the National League, six points behind leaders Leyton Orient with four games to go.
Bryan Hughes’ side are nine points ahead of Ebbsfleet, the team immediately outside the top-seven, and could have a booked a play-off berth when the final whistle blows at The Hive.
But Roberts is still aiming high and although Wrexham are outsiders in the automatic promotion race, he is targeting a second or third placed finish so the Reds avoid a preliminary round play-off tie and advance to a home semi-final match.
“At the moment it looks like we will be challenging for second or third spot,” said Roberts.

“If we can finish second or third and have a one-legged home tie, with our home form it will be a massive positive and a boost for everyone.”
