Mark Carrington has spelled out the ambition within the Wrexham squad, stating “we want to win the league”, but insists the Dragons must find a level of consistency to maintain their challenge at the top of the standings, report the Daily Post.

Wrexham got back to winning ways on Saturday as they claimed a 1-0 victory at home over Barnet – that triumph coming on the back of a 3-0 loss at Sutton United seven days earlier and a midweek 0-0 draw at Harrogate Town – both matches played on artificial 3G pitches.

Stuart Beavon scored the only goal of the game against the Bees to ensure the points, but the Dragons needed to be resolute as John Still’s side heaped on pressure in the final moments of the contest.

“It was important we got back to winning ways after only picking up one point from the last week,” said Carrington, who is Wrexham’s longest serving player in the current squad.

“It was a tough game, Barnet put us under a lot of pressure second half, but we stood up to it well and it was an important three points.

“We said after Harrogate that we thought we’d played well and had good chances and probably should have won the game. But we also said that it would be a good point if we won on Saturday and we have done that so it doesn’t look too bad now.

“If we can kick on and pick up another three points this Saturday then we are back in a good run of form.”
