RELEGATED Wrexham have started planning for next season in League Two, but the club's future still hangs in the balance according to administrator David Acland.
And his caution was echoed yesterday by Dragons boss Denis Smith, who said more work needed to be done to improve attendances at the Racecourse.
With owner Alex Hamilton seemingly no closer to agreeing a sale to Wrexham businessman
Neville Dickens, the administrators last week rejected the eviction notice and said football would continue at the Racecourse for at least another 12 months.
"Mr Hamilton would now have to take legal action against us in order to kick the club out and we don't think he'll do that," said Acland yesterday..
"Nor have we heard from him since we issued our statement. "Now someone has to give the Football League a commitment to trade through all next season and do it in such a way that the club's creditors don't suffer.
"We have to ensure that the club can pay its way and, in line with the Football League's criteria, give them an assurance the club can fulfil its fixtures."
And Acland admitted that without a sale it would be touch and go whether those assurances could be given unless help was provided to maximise commercial and sponsorship activities as a means of boosting the club's income.
Earlier this month Dickens revealed that his initial bid for the club had fallen short of the asking price - rumoured to be around £4m - and appealed for help to save the club.
Smith, meanwhile, viewed the Racecourse reprieve as merely a starting point.
"I'm working with what I know about the club's circumstances rather than with what I hope will happen here," he said. "Wrexham is not a well-supported club and we have to work harder to try and attract people into the ground."
