PREVIEW | Chesterfield (A)

It's back on the road for a big clash under the floodlights!

14 August 2022

Wrexham AFC are back in action on Tuesday evening, with Chesterfield our opponents in the first midweek clash of the campaign.

The Red Dragons will be hoping to build on the four points secured from the opening two league fixtures against Eastleigh and Yeovil respectively, with this latest game sure to provide a good test for Phil Parkinson's men.

Supporters will have fond memories of last season's visit to Chesterfield - which resulted in a 2-0 win for Wrexham - and with another sold-out away end behind the team this time around, it's set to be an unmissable match.

TEAM NEWS

Players on both sides will welcome the news that temperatures are set to drop off this week, following the tricky conditions at Yeovil over the weekend. 

That match saw summer signings Jacob Mendy and Elliot Lee handed their first starts for the Club, as Parkinson made a total of three changes from the side which started against Eastleigh on the opening day.

Jordan Tunnicliffe and Sam Dalby were named as substitutes against the Glovers and will be hoping to play a part on Tuesday after joining the Club earlier in the summer. 

Tom O'Connor missed the trip to Huish Park through injury, while Callum McFadzean wasn't named in the matchday squad. The likes of Christian Dibble remain longer-term absentees. 

THE OPPOSITION

After a disappointing opening day against newly promoted Dorking Wanderers, our next opponents picked up their first win of the campaign at the weekend, seeing off Aldershot Town courtesy of Liam Mandeville's second-half effort.

Like Wrexham, Chesterfield will be looking to go one better this season, having lost out in the Play-Off Semi-Finals in 2021/22 following a seventh-placed finish. 

Managed by experienced boss, Paul Cook, the Spireites suffered a blow last season when losing top scorer Kabongo Tshimanga to injury - the striker made his long-awaited return to action as a substitute last time out and will hope to start in midweek.

As mentioned, Wrexham secured an important win in this fixture last season, with the reverse at the Racecourse ending all square.
