Manager wants Wrexham to impose themselves on Oldham

30 September 2022

Phil Parkinson has prepared his team for what is going to be a highly competitive game as they return to the road to take on Oldham Athletic.

It’s the first time Wrexham has visited Boundary Park since 2005, and with the Red Dragons unbeaten in seven, it’s a chance to extend the club’s excellent run of form.

Last time out Parkinson’s men put six past Torquay, with six different goal scorers contributing on the way to victory.

The club currently leads the goal scoring and defensive charts in the Vanarama National League, and Parkinson explained that’s going to be key against Latics.

He said: “It’s about us imposing our game on Oldham right from the first minute until the last.

“We’re going there with a real positive mindset to continue our run and that’s what we’re looking to do.

“It’s going to be a cracking atmosphere and we’ve got a lot of supporters following us into Lancashire.

“We’re looking to put on a full throttle Wrexham performance.”

Wrexham go into today’s fixture against an Oldham side who have found results hard to come by so far during the league campaign.

Latics icon John Sheridan left the club by mutual consent last week and was replaced by David Unsworth, who suffered defeat in his first game in charge against Bromley.

However, Unsworth has already made some personnel changes, with Francis Jeffers coming in as First Team Coach and former Wrexham man John Rooney signing on a two-year deal.

Despite the changes at Boundary Park, Parkinson believes it’s all about what his side do come kick-off.

He said: “I’m sure Dave [David Unsworth] has been working very hard on the training ground this week and maybe they’ll make some changes.

“We’re ready to adapt to however they set up.

“We know the attributes we need to perform at our best, and I’m looking forward to seeing us implement that against Oldham.”

In the build-up to today’s game, no First Team fixture in midweek allowed for a full week on the training ground to prepare for the Latics.

On the road, Wrexham have secured three wins from the last four matches and Parkinson added he’d been impressed by the performance levels shown in training.

He said: “It’s going to be a competitive game, two big clubs for this level, and the lads have trained well this week.

“The concentration and quality have been at a high level and the aim is to take that into the game.”

In addition to this, he also gave a further update on the squad: “There’s nothing really new on our front; Jacob Mendy went for a scan earlier this week which isn’t good news from our point of view.

“Bryce Hosannah and Tom O’Connor have come through a couple of days of training which is really key for us.

“They are excellent players and we’re looking to get them involved sooner rather than later.”

Live audio commentary will be available via WrexhamPlayer for this afternoon's game, with match updates also posted to the Live Match Centre and the Club's official Twitter account.

Match highlights will be posted onto WrexhamPlayer at midnight (BST), due to the Vanarama National League highlights show featuring on BT Sport at 11.30pm.
