PREVIEW |Wrexham vs Aldershot Town

The Shots arrive looking to continue their improved form under interim manager Terry Brown.

17 November 2022

The battle for the title continues, as the Red Dragons seek to maintain our 100% home record against Aldershot. Saturday's match at the Racecourse Ground kicks off at 3pm.

Wrexham surrendered top spot to Notts County last Saturday, drawing at Wealdstone while The Magpies picked up an impressive three points at Eastleigh.

Phil Parkinson's options were limited by a lot of defensive absences at Grosvenor Vale: Aaron Hayden, Bryce Hosannah, Anthony Forde and Jacob Mendy were all absent from the match day squad at Wealdstone, although there was good news on the bench where Reece Hall-Johnson was able to make his first appearance of the season, coming on for the last six minutes.

Further up the pitch, Jordan Davies' lively cameo after he came on for James Jones will give the manager food for thought when he contemplates his starting line-up.

Visitors Aldershot arrive in 18th place, four points above the relegation zone and without a manager. The Shots suffered a poor start to the season, which came to a head when, despite fighting back at Glanford Park to claim a 3-3 draw against Scunthorpe United, they found themselves bottom of the league.

Their next match, a damaging loss on the road in the FA Cup Qualifying Round at Chelmsford, led to First-Team Manager Mark Molesley and Assistant Manager Tom Prodomo being dismissed. Molesley had arrived with a promising reputation as a coach with a modern outlook on match preparation, but ultimately he was unable to take his side away from the bottom end of the National League, where they have languished for far too long considering their status as an ex-Football League club.

Club legend Terry Brown was part of an interim management team, with Ross McNeilly - the Club's Academy manager - stepping up to take temporary charge. The groupd has improved matters during a lengthy spell in temporary charge, which opened up superbly with a run of three victories at the end of October against Yeovil, York and Dorking, but two consecutive losses have prevented them from establishing more breathing space between themselves and the bottom four.

Their last away game resulted in a stunning 6-1 loss to struggling Torquay United, and they followed that result with a home defeat to Maidenhead United. Before that worrying brace of defeats, The Shots had been unbeaten in five league games.

They've not had a problem finding the net though: only Dorking have scored more in the bottom half of the table, and Dagenham are the only other side outside the play-off spots to have outscored them, and with three away wins, their record on the road is good.

Since Aldershot dropped down to the National League in 2013, they’ve not tended to get much from their trips to The Racecourse. In 9 games they’ve won two, drawn one and lost six.

Last season Aldershot, having already lost 5-0 at home to us in a rearranged fixture, held us at bay until the 35th minute, when Paul Mullin scored the first of two goals. Jordan Davies and Ollie Palmer struck in the second half to secure a 4-1 win, with Aldershot’s consolation coming in the third minute of added time.

The season before Aldershot also returned home empty-handed, after a typical strike by Luke Young was the only goal of the game.

Their wins came in January 2020, when two goals midway through the second half settled matters. A neatly-taken goal in added time by JJ Hooper came too late to influence the outcome.

They also won in 2017, when they earned a 2-0 win with both goals coming in the last 20 minutes.

Their first National League match in Wrexham was settled in dramatic fashion. Joe Clarke gave the home team an early lead, which was swiftly wiped out.

Wrexham dominated but couldn’t get the breakthrough until the 87th minute when Jay Harris, fresh from a glorious long range goal against Barrow which won the Steve Edwards Goal of the Season Trophy, launched another shot from distance which, helped by a handling error by the goalkeeper, looped into the net!

Match Reports

REPORT | Wrexham 2-0 Aldershot Town

Paul Mullin and James Jones on target in home win

19 November 2022

Paul Mullin and James Jones scored as Wrexham moved back to the top of the table, after a 2-0 victory over Aldershot Town.

First half goals, including Mullin’s sumptuous chip and Jones’ unmissable tap-in were more than enough to seal the three points for Wrexham at the Racecourse against the Shots. 

Mullin opened the scoring, after running the length of the Aldershot half and astutely finishing from a tight angle against the impressive Luca Ashby-Hammond. 

The Wrexham striker almost had a double within the first half, as he saw his left-footed shot cleared off the line by Ollie Harfield. Jones was on hand though to make sure Wrexham’s lead was still doubled, as he pushed the rebound home into an empty net. 

Phil Parkinson’s team sheet included a return for Bryce Hosannah and Aaron Hayden, as Liam McAlinden and Tom O’Connor dropped to the bench.  

An early opportunity in the ninth minute saw Luke Young’s corner find the head of Ollie Palmer. However, the striker was off-balance and couldn’t steer his header underneath the crossbar. 

Elliot Lee found some surprising room on the edge of the Aldershot box in the 12th minute, but took a loose touch. This poor touch actually deceived the Aldershot defender and allowed Lee to curl a strike from closer to goal, which was saved by a flying Ashby-Hammond in the Shots’ goal. 

An ambitious ball from Young on the halfway line found Ben Tozer inside the Aldershot box and was matched with a stupendous touch on his right-foot. The centre back then flicked an early shot at goal with his other foot, seeing the goalkeeper out of position, but the ball bounced just wide of the far corner with 22 minutes gone. 

With 27 minutes on the clock, Palmer flicked on a header to the on-running Paul Mullin on the right-wing. The angle seemed to be forever narrowing as the striker strode into the box. However, Wrexham’s number ten was able to entice the goalkeeper slightly off his line, as he chipped the ball into the far corner to open the scoring for Wrexham. 

A scramble in the penalty area led to Mullin flicking a left foot at the ball, forcing Harfield to put his body on the line and keep the ball out. James Jones was lurking on the goalmouth though and scored one of the easiest goals of his career in the 38th minute. 

Half-time was called after a breathtaking first period by Wrexham, with utter dominance against the Shots capped off by Mullin and Jones’ goals. 

A frantic start to the second half saw a handful of chances within five minutes of the restart. Palmer swiped a low-cross over the bar from close range, before having his placed effort from the back-post cleared off the line. Willard then received a poor throw from Mark Howard, allowing the winger to stride into the Wrexham box and drill an effort goalbound. Howard then made-up for his mistake, diving quickly to the floor to collect the ball. 

Ashby-Hammond added to his reputation with a sprawling save in the 52nd minute. Lee somehow bundled an effort on goal from a Liam McAlinden cross and Ashby-Hammond reacted instantly to sprawl and push the ball away from his goalline. 

Aldershot were better countering the Wrexham attacks this half and dangerously. This was proved when a cross found Frank Vincent in the middle of the Wrexham six-yard box, but he dragged his effort over the bar in the 54th minute, when he really should have pulled a goal back for the visitors. 

This slightly chaotic ten-minute period soon came to an end, as the Red Dragons began to manage the affair better. 

Young’s delivery was beyond impressive in the fixture, but he did have his turn shooting at goal in the 68th minute. Ashby-Hammond's poor clearance found Young towards the halfway line and the Wrexham skipper felt obliged to shoot, with his long-ranged effort only just missing the empty goal. 

Substitutions and good game management by Wrexham then drowned out any further chances, until the very end, when Inih Effiong’s deflected shot from inside the Wrexham box kissed the crossbar in the 90th minute. 

Notts County’s draw at home to Yeovil Town confirmed Wrexham’s place at the top of the National League table. Full-time at the Racecourse was then greeted with tremendous chants as the Wrexham faithful had seen the news over at Meadow Lane.
