PREVIEW | Woking v Wrexham

An away game! Really!

22 April 2022

Following seven consecutive home games, we're back on the road on Saturday, with mid-table Woking providing our next test in front of the BT Sport cameras.

Kick-off will be at 5:20pm, when the Red Dragons will be looking to continue what is a 14-game unbeaten run heading into the clash.

Woking's home record is peculiar, to say the least. They haven't drawn at Kingfield all season, but have lost 12! However, the 7 home victories they have managed (although they've won more on the road), so they've never been in danger of dropping into the bottom end of the table.

They've won 5 and lost 3 in their last 8 games, and are not to be under-estimated. A month ago they welcomed Stockport County and led twice before eventually losing 3-2. 


Jordan Davies' header separated the sides as Wrexham earned their first home win of the season.

HEAD TO HEADimagew4x1i.pngimageg4b3h.pngimagemac1.pngWe enjoyed our best ever result at Woking last season, as we ran amok in the second half at Kingfield. Luke Young gave us a half time lead from the penalty spot, and Reece Hall-Johnson struck after the break to give us some breathing space.

Gold Omotayo’s first goal for Wrexham put us 3-0 up in the first minute of added time, and in the 96th minute Jordan Davies followed up his midweek hat trick at Halifax with a typical screamer.

That was our second win in 9 matches at Woking. The first came in October 2015, with Connor Jennings scoring the only goal after 28 minutes. Jennings was a constant threat and really ought to have scored more than once in a game Wrexham dominated.

The previous season we travelled to Kingfield under the caretaker management of Brian Flynn, and took the lead early in the second half through a nicely worked move which ended in James Jennings firing home. However, a Jake Lawlor own goal with a quarter of an hour left meant the game ended in a draw.

We also had a caretaker manager when we played at Woking the occasion before that. Dean Keates had just left for Walsall, so Andy Davies was in temporary charge.

We fell behind early on to a Josh Staunton goal, but the centre back equalised with an own goal twenty minutes later! Marcus Kelly put us ahead on the hour with a free kick from a wide position which he claimed was a shot rather than a cross, but with ten minutes left Woking equalised.


Our most recent defeat at Woking was in September 2016, when we were beaten 2-0.
