The BBC lead their Wrexham AFC page with a report of Saturday afternoons 1-2 away at Barnet FC in the Vanarama National League. 

The National League Website include Wrexham captain Shaun Pearson in their 'Team of the Weekend' for the second week in a row. Meanwhile, they also include an article about the club guaranteeing a place in the play-offs for the first time in six years. 

Covering the Barnet area, the Evening Express covered their sides loss against Wrexham at the weekend. Meanwhile, speaking to the the Barnet & Potters Bar Times, Barnet manager Darren Currie claimed that his men were the 'better side' in defeat. 

The East London & West Essex Guardian include an article about our next opponents, Sutton United's last game against leaders Leyton Orient. After the Sutton goalkeeper gifted Orient a last minute penalty and O's midfielder James Dayton was sent off for throwing his boot at the referee while receiving treatment, manager Justin Edinburgh described the game as 'bizarre'. 

Locally, the leader spoke to the match winner against Barnet, subsititute Jermaine McGlashan who told them that he hopes his goal marks a turning point for Wrexham. They have also spoke to former Dragons vice-captain and left-back Neil Ashton who told them that 'experience is key if Wrexham go down the play-off route'.

The Daily Post also spoke to manager Bryan Hughes who gave them an update Brad Walker's injury progress, which he describes him being in a 'critical week' of rehabilition. They also spoke to in-form midfielder Akil Wright who said that the Dragons will take the next three games 'one step at a time'. 

The Wrexham AFC Media Team covered the win over Barnet with the final whistle podcast. This weekend Mark Griffiths and Ollie Williams were on hand to analyise the action.
