Cox: Wrexham match is first among equals

18 March 2013

Manager Paul Cox has insisted that tomorrow night’s match at Wrexham is not a ‘do or die’ encounter and claimed that our remaining eight games would be equally as important.

Cox’s men, who sit top of the table, travel to North Wales tomorrow to face second-placed Wrexham in a match billed by many as the biggest game of the season in the hunt for the title. 

In calm-mood at this morning’s press meeting, Cox seemed keen to ensure that both players and supporters do not get carried away amidst the team’s excellent winning streak, which has seen a run of nine straight wins.

“It’s a big game but it’s not the biggest of the season,” Cox said.

“We play Wrexham on the last day of the season, so that could be the biggest, or travelling up to Barrow [for instance].

“Whatever the scenario after Tuesday, we’ll move onto the next game.  If we’re lucky enough to be in a position where we could be successful at the end of the season then brilliant, but if not [then] we’ll dust ourselves down and go again.”

After amassing 39 points from the last 42 available, Cox's side head into the match in tip-top form.  But the manager said it would count for nothing ahead of tomorrow's clash.

“Form means what you have done, I prefer to look what we have [left] to do.  It probably gives us a bit of confidence, but other than that it goes out of the window.  I want to make sure that as a football club, our feet are firmly on the ground and that we’re focussed and go about our business the way we have done recently.”

In team news, Junior Daniel (hamstring) should be fit enough to travel after coming off during the first half of Friday night’s 2-1 victory at Forest Green Rovers.
