Match Previews

PREVIEW | Fleetwood v Wrexham

Reds head to the north-west coast to face Fleetwood

2 August 2021

Wrexham's third pre-season friendly comes around quickly as Phil Parkinson's side travel to Poolfoot Farm to face Fleetwood Town.

Continued Progress

Parkinson's side put in a resounding performence on Saturday picking up their first summer win against Tamworth at the Lamb Ground. A number of senior players and trialists were given an outing in front of just shy of 1,200 supporters in the Midlands - most of which made the trip from North Wales. They wouldn't be dissapointed after Tyler French gave Wrexham the lead before Jordan Ponticelli, a trialist and Dior Angus double brushed the Lambs aside.

It showed progress made with Wrexham's fitness levels even at this early stage looking good and new signings such as Paul Mullin, Shaun Brisley and Liam McAllinden. Young Max Cleworth caught the eye of many with an assured defensive performence and an outstanding assist for Wrexham's fifth.

Changes Afoot

Parkinson is expected to utilise some of those who've been either unavailable or unused during the trip to Tamworth. It's an oppurtunity to once again adapt to any new patern of play and cast an eye over the trialists who continue to jostle for a Wrexham deal. Luke Young and Harry Lennon are yet to feature this summer but could potentially be available, whilst Jake Hyde is also set to return.

We've Met Before

Wrexham travelled to Poolfoot in the summer of 2019 for a pre-season friendly with the Cod Army running out 1-0 victors. Our last competative game came in the 2011/12 campaign at Highbury with the sides drawing 1-1 with goals from Jake Speight and a Mark Creighton own-goal. Our last meeting at the Racecourse saw Wrexham take three points via goals from Speight and Andy Morrell.

Team News

As mentioned, Hyde and Lennon could be set for a return whilst Young could also feature. Forward Liam McAllinden appeared for the first time on Saturday. Devonte Redmond has been recovering from a knock in recent weeks whilst Jamie Reckord remains unavailable.

Keep Up

You can keep up with all the action via our live match-centre which you can find here. Live commentary will be available from 12:50. The thoughts of the manager and more will be available post-match.

MATCH REPORT | Fleetwood 0-4 Wrexham

Reds' secure victory in third summer

4 August 2021

Paul Mullin and Jake Hyde combined to put Fleetwood to the sword, as Wrexham stormed to a dominant win against a mixed home team.

Though officially the Cod Army’s Under-23 team, the hosts did field senior players including Callum Camps, Anthony Pilkington and Darnell Johnson.

But Hyde scored twice, and Mullin and Jordan Ponticelli also netted as Wrexham followed up Saturday’s win against Tamworth with a dominant victory at Poolfoot Farm.

The Reds handed first games of the summer to new signing Harry Lennon and back-to-back Player of the Year Luke Young.

And the visitors – in their green away shirts – took just five minutes to take the lead, as Paul Mullin followed in from close-range when Shaun Brisley’s header, from Jordan Davies’ corner, was saved.

Barry Baggley looked to hit back for Fleetwood, but curled his low, long-range shot just wide after patient build-up by the Cod Army.

Within a minute, however, Wrexham had doubled their advantage. After a lovely passing move, Mullin threaded an inch-perfect pass through to Hyde, who finished low across goal.

Wrexham remained on top, and Hyde was only just beaten at the near post to Davies’ inswinging corner on the quarter-hour.

The striker then headed wide across goal on 20 minutes, from Reece Hall-Johnson’s right-wing cross.

Young’s fierce strike from distance deflected wide on the half-hour, but Wrexham remained on top and added a third on 37 minutes.

Another good team move saw a trialist release Mullin, who pulled back for Hyde to spin and fire into an empty net.

Dior Angus and Max Cleworth replaced Hyde and Lennon at half-time as the visitors continued to manage the workload of the new signings.

On 47 minutes, Tyler French missed a good chance to add a fourth – mistiming his header, unmarked, from Davies’ corner.

A minute later, new Fleetwood signing Anthony Pilkington fired a left-footed shot well over the bar.

At the other end, Mullin turned his man and crossed to the back post, but a trialist headed wide on 62 minutes.

Mullin, Davies, Young and Hall-Johnson were replaced by Dan Jarvis, Liam McAlinden, Jordan Ponticelli and a trialist on 62 minutes.

Two minutes later, Christian Dibble spread his body to save well and deny Baggley but Wrexham soon settled back into their rhythm.

They were rewarded on 70 minutes, when Angus whipped in a brilliant right-wing cross, leaving Ponticelli to turn in from very close-range.

That was the signal for three more changes, as youngsters Dan Davies and Joe Fountain, as well as Cameron Green, all came on.

Darnell Johnson headed over for Fleetwood on 86 minutes, and Angus shot straight at the goalkeeper from Ponticelli’s flick on moments later.

There were no further goals, however, as Steve Parkin – managing the team as Phil Parkinson isolates at home after a positive COVID test – enjoyed a winning afternoon.

Line-ups: Wrexham: Dibble, French (Fountain 70), Brisley (D.Davies 70), Lennon (Cleworth 46), Hall-Johnson (McAlinden 62), J.Davies (Jarvis 62), Young (Trialist C 62), Trialist A (Bickerstaff 74), Trialist B (Green 70), Hyde (Angus 46), Mullin (Ponticelli 62).

Fleetwood Town: Crellin, Bird, Hayes, Boyle, D.Johnson, Teale, C.Johnson, Baggley, Edmondson, Camps, Pilkington.

Subs: Wilson, Rees, Conn-Clarke, Thompson, Raffie, McMillan
