PREVIEW | Maidenhead United vs Wrexham

It's straight back to the South East in search of back-to-back wins.

25 October 2021

After Saturday's excellent win at Barnet, we face a team which ended a poor run in spectacular style last Saturday.

Maidenhead United started the season in excellent style, winning their first two games. However, they went into last Saturday's home match with Woking having not won in the league since. A sequence of 2 draws and 6 defeats left them hovering just above the relegation zone, and they fell behind twice to the in-form Cards.

However, The Magpies managed a couple of equalisers and, with the visitors down to ten men, snatched a 90th minute winner through Sam Barratt's second of the game.

They'll hope the win will mark a turning point in their season, and won't have to look far for an example of a team whose form has suddenly improved. Wrexham have certainly turned the momentum around since the near-defeat at Marine, with a change of shape yielding two emphatic wins and two clean sheets.

HEAD TO HEAD

We won our first 4 games against Maidenhead, but haven’t won in 4 subsequent matches.

Our match at York Road last season saw us show real spirit to come back from a terrible first half performance. It looked like we were going to suffer a third consecutive loss to The Magpies as we trailed 2-0 at the break, but improved massively in the second period and laid siege to Maidenhead’s goal.


Jordan Davies pulled a goal back from a corner and substitute Dior Angus scored the equaliser. Despite late pressure, we couldn’t get a winner to repeat the victories we enjoyed in our first two games at York Road though.

The first occasion, in August 2017, ended in a 2-1 win as Manny Smith, scored two goals in a match for the only time in his career.


A year later we went top of the table after a 2-0 victory thanks to two goals in four minutes half way through the first half. First Jordan Maguire-Drew opened the scoring with a magnificent strike, and then Mike Fondop scored following a mistake by the goalkeeper.

Our good run of results at Maidenhead ended emphatically in December 2019, when we put in a poor performance to lose 2-0.

REPORT | Maidenhead United 3-2 Wrexham

Spirited comeback not enough for ten-man Red Dragons as co-chairmen watch at York Road

26 October 2021

A spirited comeback with ten men, from 2-0 down away to Maidenhead United, was not quite enough for Wrexham – in front of co-chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds for the first time – as Josh Kelly’s late winner spoiled the party.

Kane Ferdinand and Jay Mingi scored in quick succession to stun the visitors, before Bryce Hosannah’s straight red card added to Wrexham’s woes.

But with Rob and Ryan in the stands to watch their first live Wrexham game, Paul Mullin pulled a goal back before half-time and Jordan Davies’ screamer levelled proceedings.

A Hollywood-style comeback was not to be, however, as – against the run of play – Kelly scored what proved to be the winner.

Phil Parkinson named an unchanged eleven as he hoped to make it three wins on the bounce after Saturday’s resounding win against Barnet and will be disappointed in the way the game unravelled.

Ferdinand opened the scoring 20 minutes into the tie after some good play down the left-hand side resulted in him rising early and heading past Christian Dibble.

Three minutes later, the hosts had doubled their advantage as a miscommunication between Reckord and Brisley, left Mingi with space to drive towards Dibble’s goal and he calmly slotted home.

The half went from bad to worse on 31 minutes when Hosannah was shown a straight red card – after much deliberation between the officials – for what was later revealed to be an elbow.

However, Wrexham got a goal back after Davies’ free kick was headed onto the crossbar, and Mullin managed to bundle the ball over the line for his ninth goal of the season.

Just after half-time Davies put Wrexham back on level terms after a surging run culminated in a powerfully driven shot which was out of reach for Lovatt in the Maidenhead goal.

A superb five-minute cameo from Phil Parkinson’s side was thwarted only by some heroics from the Maidenhead defence.

Shaun Brisley’s header was blocked on the goal line and the resulting flash rebound from Davies missed the target among that.

Kelly darted inside onto his right foot and finished low from 20 yards, however, to snatch victory for Maidenhead on 75 minutes.
