PREVIEW | Woking (A)

It's back on the road this weekend, looking for back-to-back wins

25 August 2022

Wrexham AFC are back in league action this weekend, travelling south to take on Woking in front of the BT Sport cameras on Saturday evening (kick-off 5:20pm UK).

The Red Dragons - who sit fifth in the table at the time of writing - will undoubtedly looking for a repeat of last weekend's superb 5-0 victory over Maidstone United at the Racecourse Ground, with a first away win of the campaign proving elusive so far.

Our ticket allocation stands at 1,150 for this fixture, and is split between tickets for standing (approx 900) and seating (approx 200).

TEAM NEWS

Manager Phil Parkinson made several changes to his starting line-up following defeat at Chesterfield on our last away outing, with the likes of Anthony Forde and captain Luke Young returning at the weekend, and summer signing Sam Dalby appearing from the bench. Rob Lainton, Christian Dibble and Reece Hall-Johnson all remained sidelined through injury.

Woking have named the same XI in each of their last two games, but may look to freshen things up following defeat at Barnet last time out.

THE OPPOSITION

As mentioned, Woking will come into Saturday's game looking to get back to winning ways, with their record standing at two wins and two defeats after the opening four matches. 

An opening-day defeat at York City will have come as a disappointment to Darren Sarll's men, but they recovered quickly to beat both Dagenham & Redbridge and Scunthorpe United by a 2-0 scoreline. In fact, each of their games so far has finished 2-0, one way or the other.

Woking will hope to improve upon their 15th-placed finish from last season, though they did win this fixture in 2021/22, recovering from 1-0 down to secure a 2-1 win. It was a different story at the Racecourse, where 10-man Wrexham came out on top, thanks to Jordan Davies' goal.

FOLLOW THE ACTION

This game will be broadcast live on BT Sport in the UK, with live audio commentary available via WrexhamPlayer, and live updates posted to our official Twitter feed.

For those making the trip, Woking have confirmed that away turnstiles at Gate 2 of the Laithwaite Community Stadium will be open from 15:30 on the day of the match.

Due to popular demand for seating, seated tickets are available via Woking's website, separately to the standing tickets already on sale. This means that any standing tickets already bought will be for the Chris Lane Terrace exclusively, with the seated tickets, now on sale, being allocated to the Seymours Community Stand alone.

This will be managed by Woking's matchday stewards, to ensure supporters with the different ticket categories are placed in the correct stand.

Any Wrexham supporters who have already purchased a 'standing ticket' can change this to the new 'seated ticket' by calling the Woking Club ticket office on 01483 772 470.
