IT may be party time at Gigg Lane on Saturday but Andy Preece will accept nothing other than another passionate performance.

Visitors Wrexham will have their foot firmly off the pedal after already clinching promotion while Shakers avoided the dreaded last-day drama by securing their place in the Division Three play-offs with last week's win at Southend.

But Preece insists the result of their final league match of the season is still crucial.

"We want to win because that will guarantee us home advantage in the second leg of the play-offs. So that's important," he said.

"But the pressure is off us so we can all relax and enjoy the day."

"It's important to let the players have their celebrations because just to get into the play-offs is a great achievement.

"But as soon as the game's over we will be back focussed on achieving what is now a realistic dream of a trip to Cardiff."
