WREXHAM captain Ashley Westwood insists the Dragons must improve their home form if they are to make a successful late push for promotion.
The Racecourse crowd last witnessed a Blue Square Premier win for Dean Saunders’ men on Valentine’s Day.
Since then a haul of just two points out of a possible 12 at home – part of a wider slump of just one win in 10 league outings – have seen their promotion chances fade badly.
Wrexham now face three consecutive games at the Racecourse, beginning with tomorrow evening’s visit of Barrow.
And Westwood believes these games represent the ideal opportunity to get back into the race for a play-off place.
“Earlier in the season we had an excellent record at home, but in the last few games we have suffered,” the centre back said.
“We have to get back to that earlier form and make the Racecourse a fortress again. We want to get promoted first time round. No one wants to play non-league football.
“We obviously need points on the board as quickly as possible to try to get into the play-offs.
“There are eight games left for us. There is still a lot of football to be played. None of us are giving up. We all still believe we can get there, particularly if we win these three home games.”
A particular problem for the Dragons in recent games is a lack of goals. In the last three matches they have failed to score.
It is a problem Westwood says the coaching staff and the players are working hard to address on the training ground.
“We are well aware we have not scored enough goals and we are working hard on that,” the 31-year-old added.
“What we need to do in games is to score first. That will give us confidence to push on and see the games out.”
