MATCH PREVIEW | Wrexham vs Torquay United

Red Dragons look to maintain unbeaten streak

23 September 2022

Wrexham AFC welcome Torquay United to the Racecourse Ground this weekend, looking to build on a six-match unbeaten streak and a winning home record.

The second-placed Red Dragons take on the Gulls on Saturday September 24 in a match that kicks off at 3pm at Y Cae Ras.

It’s Torquay’s first visit to North Wales since they snatched a late equaliser in last year’s encounter – a match watched by co-chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds on their first visit to Wrexham.

Team News

Wrexham were unchanged last weekend, sticking with the same starting XI that had already helped beat Dorking Wanderers 5-0 and Dagenham & Redbridge 4-1 in the previous two games.

Though the likes of Callum McFadzean and Elliot Lee remain among Phil Parkinson’s options should he wish to shuffle the pack, the match may come too soon for Wrexham’s injured players.

They include Bryce Hosannah and Reece Hall-Johnson, who are back in training and building up fitness.

Rob Lainton is also back on the grass, and Tom O’Connor is expected to join them next week. Harry Lennon and Christian Dibble are still sidelined, however.

For Torquay, experienced defender Dean Moxey remains a doubt, while Tom Lapslie is out injured. Shaun Donnellan is pushing for a return to action, however.

The Opposition: Torquay United

Following a disappointing start to the season, Torquay sit 20th in the Vanarama National League table with eight points from nine games.

However, seven of those points have come on the road, including a 1-1 draw with Wealdstone last time out.

Prior to that Ryan Hanson and ex-Chester man Will Goodwin scored in a 2-1 win in Southend, though in between the Gulls were thrashed 4-1 at home to Solihull Moors.

Previous Meetings

Torquay have enjoyed a good record against Wrexham since the Gulls’ return to the Vanarama National League.

Wrexham have not won against Torquay since Chris Holroyd’s hat-trick helped them to a 4-0 home win in January 2018.

Torquay went down that year, and since their return with Gary Johnson in charge, they are unbeaten in this fixture.

Connor Lemonheigh-Evans’ late equaliser cancelled out Harry Lennon’s opener in front of the Wrexham co-chairmen at the Racecourse Ground last October.

Most recently, meanwhile, Tom O’Connor’s Wrexham debut was soured by a 1-0 loss at Plainmoor in February; Asa Hall’s early goal proving the difference.

The result was a turning point for Wrexham, however, who won 15 of the next 18 matches and have lost just five of the 32 competitive matches played in all competitions since.

Live audio commentary will be available via WrexhamPlayer, with match updates also posted to the Live Match Centre and the Club's official Twitter account.

Highlights will be available to view on WrexhamPlayer from 10.30pm on Saturday night.

MATCH REPORT | Wrexham AFC 6-0 Torquay United

Red Dragons run riot at the Racecourse

24 September 2022

Jordan Davies’ first-half header kick-started what was a clinical performance as the Red Dragons ran riot in front of just under 10,000 supporters at the Racecourse

Three goals in each half helped secure an emphatic victory, with six different goal scorers showing the attacking talent the squad possesses.

Jordan Davies, Paul Mullin, Ollie Palmer, Aaron Hayden, Sam Dalby and Anthony Forde all found the back of the net.

The win keeps the Red Dragons in second place, with Chesterfield coming back to claim victory in the dying moments to maintain first place.

Phil Parkinson named an unchanged XI as his Wrexham side went in search of their seventh successive match unbeaten.

Ollie Palmer created the first real opportunity of the contest, as he got on the end of a Ben Tozer throw, which went wide of the post.

The visitors looked to play themselves into the game, but James Jones unleashed a ferocious strike that saw Mark Halstead make an excellent save.

However, it was from the resulting corner that saw Jordan Davies put Wrexham ahead, as he headed home from a Luke Young corner in the 11th minute.

Anthony Forde was inches away from making it two minutes later, with his curled effort crashing against the post and bouncing clear of Halstead’s goal.

Injury to Jacob Mendy dampened Wrexham's momentum a little during the first half, as he was replaced by Callum McFadzean after receiving a period of treatment.

Just before the half-hour mark, Paul Mullin doubled the Wrexham lead, as he poked the ball home from inside the penalty area.

The first opportunity for The Gulls to strike back fell to Aaron Jarvis, whose effort hit the underside of the bar, bounced onto the line and clear.

Minutes before the break Palmer made it three, as his well-executed finish was steered past Halstead giving the Red Dragons a healthy lead.

The second period started at a slower pace than the way the first ended, with the visitors trying to play themselves back into the game.

Despite controlling more of the ball and winning numerous corners, nothing stuck for The Gulls their only being opportunity a long-range effort from Hall which never troubled Howard.

Wrexham began to turn the screw and Aaron Hayden’s leaping header made it four, leaving Halstead rooted to the spot.

With ten minutes remaining Parkinson made his final Wrexham changes, with Elliot Lee and Sam Dalby coming on, in replace of Ollie Palmer and Paul Mullin.

After being on the pitch for only a minute, Dalby got himself on the scoresheet, claiming his first ever goal in a Wrexham shirt.

Torquay still searched for a consolation goal, and Jarvis came close again to scoring, but he couldn’t quite direct his strike goalbound.

The day of firsts continued with Anthony Forde getting his first Wrexham goal in added time, capping off a six-goal rout at the Racecourse.
