Manny Smith believes Wrexham have made big progress this season but now they have to finish the job off.
Wrexham’s 16-game unbeaten run in the National League came to an end on Monday as the Reds lost 1-0 at home to promotion rivals Boreham Wood. Despite the defeat, Wrexham are fourth in the table, 13 points behind leaders Macclesfield Town and six ahead of AFC Fylde, the side immediately outside the play-offs
The title is almost certainly beyond Wrexham with only five games to go but Smith refuses to dwell on the first defeat since going down 4-1 at Macclesfield on December 9 and is focussed on finishing in the top-seven.
“We have got five games left now and most of the results went our way,” said Smith, who will be looking to bounce back when Wrexham visit mid-table Eastleigh on Saturday. “We have just got to cement our position now.
“It is disappointing, we haven’t lost in a long while. It is just a reminder really of how far we have come and how well we have done.”
