Defender Mark Creighton says Wrexham's work ethic is paying dividends as they continue their push for promotion.

Wrexham are equal on points with Fleetwood Town at the top of the Blue Square Bet Premier following Saturday's 0-0 draw at York City.

The Dragons have lost only once since Andy Morrell succeeded Dean Saunders as manager in late September.

"We're all working hard and you get what you deserve when you work hard," said Creighton.

"The team spirit's great [and] we all want to be in and amongst each other all of the time.

"We have a great time in training, we work hard but there's some good banter flying around.

"We're all mega happy at the minute and you play your best football when you're happy."

Creighton has been part of a Wrexham defence that has not conceded a league goal since the 4-1 win at Gateshead on 4 October.

And the former Oxford United player says Wrexham are capable of adapting their style of play to suit the occasion.

"Our preliminary job is to keep clean sheets and fortunately we're doing that at the minute," he said.

"We've shown we can do both sides of the game. We can grind them out and we can play when we need to."

Wrexham take a break from league duties on Friday night when they travel to Cambridge United in the FA Cup first round.

And Creighton is fully aware Wrexham are two wins away from securing a place in the third round draw alongside the Premier League clubs.

"The third round is where you want to get to because obviously your big boys come in then," said Creighton.

"Then you get your dream day out. The club gets a nice pay packet and the lads get to have a nice enjoyable day.

"You've just got to focus on winning your next game and our next game happens to be in the cup against Cambridge."
