WREXHAM manager Denis Smith reckons his "brain-washing" methods are beginning to pay dividends after the Dragons secured their first home league win of the year on Saturday.
Hector Sam's last-minute goal against Oldham delivered another three vital points in the battle against relegation.
The Racecourse boss said his players - beaten just once in their last 12 outings - could feel proud..
"If they listen to me enough the belief they can stay up will be there because I keep telling them the season is far from over," he said..
"The lads are starting to believe they can do the job. We've got games to win and we've still got a lot of hard work to do, but there's a good spirit, they want to do the right things and we got a result we needed."
He added: "We believed we had a chance of going up this season, all things being equal. That hasn't been the case, but that doesn't take away what the lads have achieved.
"But it's not over yet and staying up is the main target."
