PREVIEW | Dorking Wanderers (A)

1 September 2022

Wrexham AFC return to league action this weekend, looking to make it four wins in a row after beating Gateshead last time out.

The Red Dragons moved up to second in the table in midweek with a 3-1 victory at the Racecourse Ground, and will now be targeting top spot against newly-promoted Dorking. 

With strike duo Ollie Palmer and Paul Mullin now into the goalscoring groove, we're the division's top goalscorers heading into Saturday's clash at Meadowbank Stadium, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm UK time.


Manager Phil Parkinson made just one change on Tuesday from the team which beat Woking in our last away game, with Callum McFadzean replacing Jacob Mendy in the starting line-up. After limping off in that game against Woking, Mendy was able to make an appearance from the bench in midweek.

Bryce Hosannah wasn't named in the matchday squad ahead of the Gateshead fixture following a slight hamstring issue, while the likes of Christian Dibble, Rob Lainton and Reece Hall-Johnson remain longer-term absentees.

For Dorking, manager Marc White made two changes to the side which started against Solihull on Saturday, with Ed Harris and Jack Jebb both coming into the starting 11 in place of Dan Gallagher and Ryan Seager respectively, for their 4-1 defeat against Boreham Wood.

Alfie Rutherford scored Dorking's goal in that defeat, but was forced off in the second half through injury.


It's been a steady start to life in the National League for Dorking, who were promoted from the National League South last season after finishing as runners-up to Maidstone United.

They've registered two wins, one draw and three defeats from their first six games, leaving them in 16th place with seven points. Their victories came against Maidstone and Gateshead, two sides Wrexham have also beaten in 2022/23.

Back-to-back defeats - against Solihull Moors and Boreham Wood respectively - mean they'll be looking to return to winning ways this weekend in what is our first-ever visit to Dorking.

The Club was formed in 1999 and has had an incredible 12 promotions over the course of 23 years, with White acting as their manager, owner and chairman.


Live audio commentary will be available via WrexhamPlayer, with match updates also posted to the Club's official Twitter account.
