MATCH PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC vs Dagenham & Redbridge

Red Dragons look to maintain winning streak

12 September 2022

Wrexham AFC bid to make it five wins in a row when Dagenham & Redbridge visit the Racecourse Ground on Tuesday September 13, for a match which kicks off at 7.45pm.

Phil Parkinson’s side have scored 16 goals on their way to four consecutive wins to move to second in the Vanarama National League Table after seven games in total.

And after the weekend’s fixtures were postponed as a mark of respect following the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II, Wrexham’s return to action will come on a Tuesday night at the Cae Ras.

With a packed stadium on the cards, Wrexham will be looking for just their fifth win against the Daggers in the National League and to bolster their goalscoring record in this fixture.

Team News

Jacob Mendy staked his claim for a regular starting spot when he replaced Callum McFadzean in the starting line-up against Dorking and delivered a goal and an assist in a 5-0 win ten days ago.

Elliot Lee stepped off the bench to score his third Wrexham goal in that win, meanwhile, and Phil Parkinson’s options for rotation include Sam Dalby, Jordan Tunnicliffe and Tom O’Connor too.

Christian Dibble and Rob Lainton remain sidelined in goal, while Reece Hall-Johnson is back on the grass in training but still some weeks short of a return to the side.

Dagenham may make changes, meanwhile, after being stunned at home by Notts County last time out – the Mapgies running riot to win 5-0. Mo Sagaf and Josh Walker appeared off the bench in that game, and both could be among the players to come into the team for this one.

The Opposition

Dagenham & Redbridge have had a mixed bag of a season so far, winning two, drawing two and losing three of their seven matches.

They beat Bromley 4-1 on Bank Holiday Monday for just their second win of the season and looked to be back to their best as Junior Morias scored twice and Mauro Vilhete and a Callum Reynolds own goal also helped them on their way.

But last time out, a stinging 5-0 loss to Notts County undid their goal difference gained and also meant a third game in seven without scoring.

Big striker Paul McCallum – who has scored against Wrexham for Dagenham in each of the last two seasons, but both times in Dagenham not Wrexham, has three goals for the season.

Elsewhere, Daryl McMahon’s key has been consistency, with a number of long-serving players in the Daggers’ ranks.
