SPORTS minister Richard Caborn yesterday pledged to help save the beleaguered Dragons.
Mr Caborn vowed to do everything he could to help Wrexham survive its current crisis.
The minister made his promise during a meeting with the town's MP Ian Lucas, Wrexham Supporters Trust chairman Bruce Clapton and the club's administrators.
The crunch meeting came on the eve of a Court of Appeal hearing which could decide the future of the League Two club.
Wrexham is only allowed to remain in administration until June this year. After then it could be thrown out of the Football League - a move likely to kill off the club.
Wrexham's controversial owner Alex Hamilton lost his battle for the Mold Road ground in October when a court declared the valuable freehold was "vested in the club".
But the property developer was appealing yesterday against the decision at the Court of Appeal in London.
There are fears the club could go under even if Mr Hamilton loses the appeal because it could take longer than four months to drag Wrexham out of administration.
Mr Caborn yesterday stopped short of immediately demanding an extension to Wrexham's deadline.
But the Daily Post understands he agreed to "pick up the phone" to Football League Chairman Brian Mawhinney if there is any risk of the club being dumped out of the league.
A Department of Culture spokesman said: "We had a very positive meeting and we are hoping for a favourable outcome tomorrow.
"Everybody needs to act with speed and goodwill in this matter and we will do everything we can to help ensure Wrexham survives."
Labour MP Ian Lucas said: "The minister said we have to create an atmosphere of goodwill between all parties. It was useful to brief him on the complex history of the litigation. He is determined that Wrexham will survive."
The Football League indicated it may be sympathetic but Mr Lucas and other campaigners do not want to leave anything to chance.
