PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC

We’ve only faced Yeovil Town twice, but both occasions were packed with goals. Unfortunately, in our only trip to Huish Park it was the home team who provided most of them! We travelled to Somerset in November 2003 for a first round FA Cup match, and took a real beating. We were 4-0 down after an hour and ended up losing 4-1, with. Chris Armstrong … Continue reading PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW | Chesterfield v Wrexham AFC

This is the fourth time we’ve faced Chesterfield this season, and surely the most important. We suffered one of our most disappointing defeats of the season at The Racecourse last October, when we dominated The Spireites for half an hour, only to collapse completely after an unnecessary own goal by Michael Chambers. We were offered a swift opportunity for revenge though, as four days later … Continue reading PREVIEW | Chesterfield v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW | Harrogate Town v Wrexham AFC

Harrogate’s artificial turf hasn’t offered them any particular advantage against us. We’ve visited them twice, both last season, and played out a goalless draw on each occasion. Harrogate’s game at The Racecourse last October – the first game of Dean Keates’ second spell as manager, saw them snatch a draw thanks to an 81st minute equalizer. We lost our first match against Harrogate when Keates … Continue reading PREVIEW | Harrogate Town v Wrexham AFC

Bobby Grant’s Daft Lunge Was One Of The Moments of 2019

One of my favourite moments of the season so far came in the second half of the Chorley match on Boxing Day. An excellent move released Devonte Redmond on the right flank, and he drilled a great cross into the goalmouth. JJ Hooper, hunting for a hat trick, attacked it at the near post, knowing that all it would take to beat the keeper from … Continue reading Bobby Grant’s Daft Lunge Was One Of The Moments of 2019

5 Questions Before Sutton United v Wrexham AFC

Can we win the flanks? Naturally, our switch to three at the back has placed extra responsibility on our wing backs to provide attacking width. Today they will come up against a 4-4-2 which could cause them problems, though. The threat of Sutton’s full backs overlapping to create overloads with their wide midfielders is something Mark Carrington and James Jennings will have to overcome if … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Sutton United v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v AFC Fylde

After what happened at Ebbsfleet last season, it would take a great deal of bravery to predict this afternoon’s events. With five minutes to go before kick-off, it appeared that the game would not go ahead. The home players had circulated a statement through the stands, declaring that unless their lack of payment was resolved, they refused to take the pitch. They did walk out … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v AFC Fylde

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v AFC Fylde

Wrexham face AFC Fylde for the 7th time desperate for a first win against them. At least in our last clash, two months ago, we managed to score past them, as The Coasters had kept clean sheets in every previous clash. However, despite leading twice we collapsed to a 3-2 defeat in what turned out to be Bryan Hughes’ last game in charge. AFC Fylde … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v AFC Fylde

5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC v Bromley

Where will the goals come from? Not an original question, but a pertinent one after last Tuesday. The chances Wrexham spurned at Torquay were worrying. No longer were we fretting over the ability to create opportunities: instead, the problem was our lack of bite in the box. However, with getting JJ Hooper on the pitch seeming to be a difficult task, it’s hard to see … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC v Bromley
