PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Notts County

The last time we played Notts County, we managed to fend off the inevitable. If results had gone the wrong way, that weekend would have ended our eighty-seven years in the Football League. However, a late Neil Roberts goal earned us a 1-0 win, and we postponed our relegation…for a full three days! The win was a surprise because our record against Notts County before … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Notts County

5 Questions Before Notts County – Wrexham AFC

Will We Miss Jake Lawlor? Jake Lawlor’s suspension means Shaun Pearson will have a new partner. I’d assume it’ll be Michael Chambers, and that his absence on the bench on Tuesday had no further significance than he lost out to a more versatile option in Adam Barton. The quality in Chambers which appears to have attracted our coaching staff most is his ability to bring … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Notts County – Wrexham AFC

5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC – Halifax Town

Can we do that “Fortress Racecourse” thing again? Our recent home record is magnificent. Discarding the Eastleigh defeat, partly because it was a play-off, partly because it just feels right, we’ve won our last five home league games, and eight out of the last nine. In fact, Halifax are the last side to return from The Racecourse with a league draw, in early September 2018: … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC – Halifax Town

5 Questions Before Dover Athletic – Wrexham AFC

Can We Keep A Clean Sheet? It’s been six games since we last kept a clean sheet, and we haven’t shut the opposition out in an away game since February. It wasn’t that we defended poorly in the latter stages of Tuesday’s game- quite the contrary, in fact. However, we’ve conceded three already this season, which is unlike us. Can Devonte Redmond Build on Tuesday? … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Dover Athletic – Wrexham AFC

Preview | Dover Athletic v Wrexham AFC

Last season saw us finally end our misery against Dover, beating them at the 9th attempt. The game fell on the opening day of the season, and Mike Fondop’s improvised overhead kick was the only goal at The Crabble. Normal service was resumed in January when they beat us 1-0 at The Racecourse! Don’t let me put you off a late decision to undertake the … Continue reading Preview | Dover Athletic v Wrexham AFC

STATS | Wrexham AFC v Barrow AFC

We have a point to prove against Barrow today, as their visit to The Racecourse last March saw us turn in our worst performance of the season. We went into the game in third place on a bleak, stormy night, looking to bounce back from a defeat at Leyton Orient, but got off to a horrible start, conceding after three minutes. A new formation failed … Continue reading STATS | Wrexham AFC v Barrow AFC

Wrexham AFC Must Avoid Dodgy Barnet Performance

After a poor start, our record at Barnet has actually become rather impressive. We lost our first two matches at their old ground, Underhill, the most notorious defeat coming in January 1993. We were pushing for promotion, and The Bees were one of our rivals in what had become a four-horse race. However, we travelled south troubled by an injury to star striker Gary Bennett … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Must Avoid Dodgy Barnet Performance

Wrexham Take Their Best Shot

Our 2-0 win over Aldershot last October ended a run of three defeats against them, our worst sequence of consecutive losses in this fixture. Now we need to break the pattern of 2-0 defeats at The Recreation Ground – each of our last two trips there ended in that scoreline. Our last win at Aldershot was in November 2015 when Wes York’s second half goal … Continue reading Wrexham Take Their Best Shot

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Bromley

If we win today we’ll have won four consecutive matches for the first time since August 2015, and we have a perfect home record against Bromley, although we’ll also lack our secret weapon against them, as we can no longer call upon the services of Ntumba Massanka! Massanka’s scoring record against Bromley is remarkable, with four goals in two substitute appearances. That record is made … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Bromley

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Borehamwood

Until last season, our record against Borehamwood had a very pleasing symmetry to it. We’d played them five times, and won each encounter. Furthermore, they’d only managed one goal against us, and that was a penalty, as we racked up four 1-0 wins. Last April that all changed in a bad tempered and controversial match. Manny Smith was harshly judged to have pushed his man … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Borehamwood

PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Woking FC

Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. Our home record against Woking isn’t too clever, as we’ve lost our last two league encounters at The Racecourse. Admittedly, there was a home win sandwiched between … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Woking FC
