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. With familiar problems on the road re-emerging, we need to keep that whole “Fortress Racecourse” thing going. Is it time … 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

The Unsolved Case of Nicky Deverdics

The departure of Nicky Deverdics this week came as no surprise to anybody, However, there’s a nagging doubt in the back of my mind that his time at The Racecourse could have panned out very differently. When Dean Keates brought him in, there was a sense of excitement. That process of injecting creativity into a side built around a strong defence had apparently found its … Continue reading The Unsolved Case of Nicky Deverdics

4-3-3 Offers More Threat

Did you enjoy Mike Fondop’s rather clever overhead kick? Rob Lainton’s penalty save? Well, my favourite moment of the Dover game came in the eleventh minute. There’s some nice build-up play which ends with Kevin Roberts slinging a good cross to the far post, which the centre back Max Schmoll has to head behind for a corner. What I liked about it wasn’t the fluency … Continue reading 4-3-3 Offers More Threat

PREVIEW: Dover Athletic v Wrexham AFC

Four times we’ve undertaken the long trip to Dover, the most distant domestic opponents in our history, and have only returned unbeaten once. That happy occasion was in February 2017, and even then the point we earned came about in rather fortunate circumstances. We were trailing 1-0 with ten minutes left when a deflection in the goalmouth hit Jordan White on the backside and ricocheted … Continue reading PREVIEW: Dover Athletic v Wrexham AFC

How Akil Wright Can Be Key For Wrexham

Patience is a virtue, as Akil Wright might be about to find out. It’s not just Wright who is likely to feel frustration at his lack of first team opportunities in 2018. He signed a long term contract five days after the transfer window opened, to widespread satisfaction from the fans. They’d enjoyed the promising thrust of his play as he looked to bring energy … Continue reading How Akil Wright Can Be Key For Wrexham

Building From The Back

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. We all know Dean Keates has done a terrific job turning things around. Now it’s time for fine tuning, beginning at the back. Last Saturday’s game showed … Continue reading Building From The Back
