Wrexham Boss Phil Parkinson Ready For Part Two . . . And Promotion Party

By Paul Jones

Part one is done and part two is now the focus for Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson.

The club are on the brink of a return to the Football League after an absence of 15 years following a 3-0 victory over Yeovil, who suffered relegation after defeat.

The victory put’s Parkinson’s men within one win of promotion and the National League title.

Second-half goals from Anthony Forde, James Jones and Paul Mullin sealed a win in the Dragons’ game in hand, meaning they are now four points clear of second placed Notts County with two games remaining.

Wrexham can now seal promotion by beating Boreham Wood on Saturday.

“It’s a day we’ve been waiting for,” Parkinson said.

“It’s part one done of the week. We know what we have to do – we’re four points clear and two games to go.

“We just need to concentrate on how we need to play against Boreham Wood.

“Obviously we know what they’re about and we’ll be looking at them closely over the next few days, and hopefully we can set a gameplan up and implement it as well as they’ve done tonight.

“The aim is to play at our very best at the weekend and we’ll see whether that’s good enough to get the points on Saturday.

“I was detecting outside the club people were almost looking ahead to Saturday and we had to make sure our focus was purely on tonight,” Parkinson added.

“Tonight was about setting up the game on Saturday. We’ve done that, the professionalism was outstanding from the lads.

“I’m really looking forward to the weekend. It’s almost the days in between the games you want them to go quick.

“The lads relish playing here at the Racecourse.”

Wrexham’s win also takes them to 107 points for the season and breaks the National League and professional English single-season points record.

Boreham Wood are sixth in the National League and will be looking to secure a place in the end-of-season play-offs to keep their own promotion hopes alive.

Meanwhile, defeat for Yeovil sees them relegated to the National League South for the first time since 1997.
