Wrexham boss Bryan Hughes was anything but giving up on the Dragons bid for the National League crown, but insisted if his side had to settle for a place in the top seven then it was crucial they rediscovered a level of form to take into the end of season play-offs, North Wales Live report.

The Dragons lost ground on Tuesday night as leaders Leyton Orient claimed a 2-0 win over AFC Fylde in the first of three games they have in hand on Wrexham.

Orient are now four points clear of the Dragons, and still played two games less, while second placed Solihull Moors sit two points clear of Hughes’ charges after they fought out a 2-2 draw with Boreham Wood in their outstanding fixture.

When asked about Orient’s midweek win, Hughes simply replied: “I’ve said many times, we can’t affect anything that is going on around the country.

“They (Orient) have hit a bit of form, it was a big result for them against Fylde, both teams going far in the FA Trophy and coming up against each other last night.

“Leyton Orient came out on top, but it doesn’t affect anything we are trying to do.”
