PREVIEW | Wrexham vs Oldham Athletic

After the drama of our league clash, Oldham arrive looking for cup revenge.

3 November 2022

Tuesday's 1-0 win against Maidenhead United maintained Wrexham's 100% home record and narrowed the gap to league leaders Notts County. Now we turn our attention to the cup and a replay of the spectacular start we made to last month.

It was a gruelling match with a bizarrely high number of head injuries. Both Ben Tozer and Ollie Palmer ended the match with their heads swathed in bandages, but it's the knocks Jordan Tunnicliffe and Bryce Hosannah took which will most concern Phil Parkinson.

Tunnicliffe was injured in an aerial challenge with Adrian Clifton, and although he stayed on the pitch long enough to make an excellent headed clearance from a dangerous cross, he couldn't continue on one leg and hobbled off to be replaced by Tom O'Connor. Hosannah took a knock in the closing moments, and no doubt appreciated some respite during the 8 minutes of added time after covering a lot of ground in his return from injury.

Oldham had the luxury of a free midweek while Wrexham faced Maidenhead, and since they lost at home to Wrexham their form has continued to be patchy with sporadic wins mixed in among intervals of frustration. 

In 5 subsequent league games, all against sides in the bottom 10 of the table, they only managed 1 win and 2 draws, and hover just 2 points above the drop zone.

It's been a rough introduction to the Boundary Park hot seat for David Unsworth. Having cut his teeth at Everton, he has an impressive reputation in the coaching world, but his immediate job was to get a tune out of the squad he inherited.

After losing his opening two games, at Bromley and then against Wrexham, he steadied the ship with 2 league draws and a home win over Yeovil Town.

He also got through the qualifying round of the FA Cup to set up this encounter although, like Wrexham, he encountered a tough challenge from a National League North side. Chester held them to a draw at Boundary Park and were moments from an extra time victory in the replay when Mike Fondop struck to take the tie to penalties. Despite Fondop missing from the spot, the Latics squeezed through. 

Subsequent defeats to Altrincham and Halifax have been a blow, though, and Oldham's away record is also a cause for concern. Athletic have the least away points in the National League this season, and have scored just 3 goals in 8 away matches.

Unsworth's furious reaction to the defeat at Halifax suggested we could see changes to his side for the trip to North Wales. He's lost defender James Carragher, who impressed against Wrexham last month, to injury, but Mark Kitching has arrived on loan and thankfully Hallum Hope has recovered from the horrific assault he suffered after playing Chesterfield in September.

"It's hard to put into words how I feel right now, the disappointment I have. But what I will say is we have two weeks now to our next league game, and by hook or by crook our team will look totally different from that. I've looked the players in the eyes and I've just told them that. I'll work night and day to get better players in, I can assure you.

-David Unsworth

Still, Unsworth enjoyed victory in the FA Cup as an Everton player in 1995, as he and Dave Watson repelled Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in a 1-0 win at Wembley. He'll hope the competition can provide the impetus his side needs to pull away from the relegation zone.

HEAD TO HEADimage4fo0m.pngimageye1jr.pngimageo8tta.png

We welcome Oldham to The Racecourse enjoying our best run of wins over The Latics. We’ve won our last 5 games against then, including this season’s last-gasp comeback win at Boundary Park.

The last time they visited us was in 2005. In fact, they came to The Racecourse twice in the space of 5 days that season, losing 1-0 on both occasions.

The first match was the second leg of the LDV Vans Trophy semi-final. Wrexham already led 5-3 after the first clash, and any hopes Oldham had of launching an epic comeback were quashed by Chris Llewellyn’s 65th minute goal.

The following Saturday it looked like Athletic would achieve at least some sort of revenge, but a last minute goal by Hector Sam denied them a point.

The previous season we enjoyed our biggest home win against Oldham. Lee Jones and Carlos Edwards both struck just before the break, and soon after the resumption Dennis Lawrence got a third. Mark Jones’ 89th minute strike secured a 4-0 win.


We’ve met The Latics three times in the FA Cup, and like the upcoming clash they were all home ties in the first round. In 1937 we triumphed 2-1 thanks to goals by Nathan Fraser and Archie Burgon, but 11 years later we suffered a 3-0 defeat.


The third clash came in 1968, and a burst of four goals in 11 minutes either side of the break decided it. By the 53rd minute Wrexham were four goals to the good: Arfon Griffiths started and rounded off the scoring spree, with Ian Moir and Albert Kinsey each striking in between.


Oldham managed two late goals to no avail.

MATCH REPORT | Wrexham 3-0 Oldham Athletic

Mullin's double sends Wrexham into the second round of the FA Cup

6 November 2022

A Paul Mullin double inspired a ruthless Wrexham display, firing the Red Dragons into the second round of the FA Cup after defeating Oldham Athletic.

The highest attendance of the round played host to a dominant Wrexham performance, securing the fourth home win on the bounce at the Racecourse Ground. 

Sam Dalby got the tie off to a flyer, as he found himself unmarked in the six-yard box to tap the ball past Jayson Leutwiler ten minutes into the contest.

Mullin doubled the advantage, as he made his way into the area, and caught Leutwiler wrong-footed before sliding the ball past the keeper. 

He got his second and final goal of the game just after the hour mark, with a glancing header to wrap up the victory.

Oldham couldn’t get a foothold in the game and never troubled Mark Howard as he kept his third clean sheet in a row.

Phil Parkinson named two changes to the side that beat Maidenhead on Tuesday night, with Callum McFadzean coming back into the side, and Sam Dalby earning his first start.

Dalby put Wrexham ahead on the ten-minute mark, as he found himself in the right place at the right time to sweep home the rebound from Luke Young’s initial strike.

The Red Dragons continued to probe, and doubled the advantage through Mullin, jinxing his way past the defence before slotting past Leutwiler.

As he fired from distance, Young had a chance to make it three before the break, but his effort never troubled Leutwiler.

Oldham started the second half brightly, and broke through the Wrexham defence, but substitute Mike Fondop’s shot was blocked by Tunnicliffe.

However the tie was complete just after the hour mark, as Ben Tozer’s hurled throw found it’s way to Mullin at the back post, and he glanced it home.

Parkinson’s men had no sign of slowing up and minutes after the third it could have been four, as Elliot Lee had two chances cleared off the line.

The onslaught continued as Bryce Hosannah embarked on a mazy run, before getting sandwiched between two Latics defenders, going to ground, but no penalty was awarded.

Mullin came only inches from securing his hat-trick as O’Connor whipped the ball across the box, but the striker couldn’t connect.
