PREVIEW | Wrexham vs Yeovil Town

Can Phil Parkinson's side continue their good fo

29 November 2021

Phil Parkinson celebrates the 825th match of his managerial career with his side looking to maintain its positive momentum.

With 4 wins from the last 5 games, and unbeaten in 6 games in the league, Parkinson's side have scaled the table in November, hitting form just as their schedule became congested.

Saturday's convincing 2-0 win over Bromley followed up a superb victory at high-flying Halifax, and the tough tests keep on coming. 

Like Wrexham, Yeovil Town are unbeaten in 6 league matches. In fact, both sides have won 4 of those matches and drawn the other 2: the only team on a longer unbeaten run in the league are table-topping Chesterfield, who have also taken 20 points from the last 24.

The Glovers will feel they should be standing alone at the top of the form table, but they dropped 2 home points to bottom side Dover Athletic. Indeed, they were losing for most of the match, but ex-Wrexham striker Adi Yussuf grabbed a late equaliser to earn a draw.

That result brought an excellent week to a disappointing end for Yeovil, as in the previous 7 days they'd pulled off impressive wins at Bromley and Dagenham. Their success is built from the back - they've conceded just 15 goals this season, bettered only by Boreham Wood in the division - despite having to deal with a number of defensive injuries.

Captain Luke Wilkinson's return from injury has helped to ease that situation, though, while at the other end Yussuf has 4 goals, a total bettered ony by another recent Wrexham forward. Joe Quigley has 6 goals to his credit this season, and has a habit of scoring past his old team. He scored 2 goals for us in a loan spell in October 2015, and has hit the net against us for Woking and Havant & Waterlooville since.

HEAD TO HEADimagel59cy.pngimage6o0j.pngimage0u5eu.pngOur brief history with Yeovil Town has been punctuated with drama and goals.

Despite the long, note-worthy history of The Glovers, they never played at The Racecourse until November 2019.  They’d already beaten us convincingly in an FA Cup tie in November 2003, and would wallop us in the return fixture later that season.

Yeovil would find goals easy to come by in this game too, with Rhys Murphy twice giving them a first half lead, but Dean Keates’ side fought back both times, equalizing through Akil Wright and Paul Rutherford. When Bobby Grant scored in the first minute of the second half, it looked like they might be rewarded for their fortitude, but Murphy completed his hat trick to earn a 3-3 draw.

In contrast to that terrific tussle, last season The Glovers were surprisingly obliging. We’d already beaten them for the first time at Huish Park on the second Saturday of the season, and when they came to The Racecourse in May, we were able to complete the double in style.

Dean Keates’ side started quickly, and Shaun Pearson headed home his last goal for the club from a corner after just 10 minutes. This started a peculiar sequence, as Luke Young drilled home a second 10 minutes later, and Jordan Davies put us 3-0 up another 10 minutes later. We were able to play out the final hour without expending too much energy and claim the three points.

Clearly, this is a fixture which has provided plenty of entertainment, with 19 goals scored in 5 games. Five times either Wrexham or Yeovil have scored three or more goals, with only 3 clean sheets between them.

Match Reports

REPORT | Wrexham 0-2 Yeovil Town

Reds fall to first home defeat

1 December 2021

Goals from Josh Staunton Sonny Blu Lo-Everton managed to break Wrexham’s unbeaten home run as the visitors returned to Somerset with all three points.

Yeovil took the lead on the 64th minute as a superb cross by Barnett found Josh Staunton unmarked at the back post to slot his side footed effort past the outstretched Rob Lainton.

Their lead was soon doubled as a miss hit clearance by Aaron Hayden caused a goalmouth scramble, which Lo-Everton eventually dispatched.

Phil Parkinson made three changes to Saturday’s team that recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over fellow promotion rivals Bromley.

The selection saw Aaron Hayden replace Tyler French in Parkinson’s favoured back three, Liam McAlinden returned to the starting line-up for the first time since Harrogate, and Jordan Ponticelli back up top with Paul Mullin.

The first half was marred in controversy as Liam McAlinden saw red after challenge with minimal contact on Dan Moss was enough for Scott Tallis to give the Wrexham man his marching orders.

The Red Dragons seemed to pick up from where they left off on Saturday, as Paul Mullin coolly put the ball past Smith and into the bottom corner, but he was denied once again by the offside flag.

Wrexham came close again to opening the scoring twenty minutes into the clash, as an excellent dummy by Mullin found its way through to McAlinden on the left-wing, and his cross was narrowly turned wide by the Yeovil backline.

The game wasn’t without its moments for the visitors, as they had two key chances to go into the ascendency before they made the breakthrough.

The first fell to Charlie Wakefield, who’s curled effort narrowly went wide of Rob Lainton’s far post and the second was shanked over the bar by Jordan Barnett, as his miscued shot sailed over the bar.

The closest Parkinson’s side came in the second half was through a flurry of headers, which forced Grant Smith into two routine saves. 

The visitors made it tricky for Wrexham to break through their compact set up, leaving chances for Mullin and Hyde hard to come by.

Tonight’s defeat keeps us in 7th position ahead of our trip to Dover on Saturday.
