After last week's home game against Torquay United was forced off due to Storm Dennis, Wrexham are back in action as they make the trip south to face Bromley.

Form

Wrexham's last game came two weeks ago in a crucial six-pointer away to Chesterfield. Will Evans' own goal gave Wrexham the lead before being pegged back moments later. In the second half, during his first start, Jordan Pontichelli scored a superb one on one to restore the lead. However, once again Wrexham were pegged back almost immediately before a stoppage-time winner saw the Spireites claim three points. Wrexham's last victory came away to Harrogate Town where James Jennings and JJ Hooper's efforts secured a 2-0 win on the road.

Bromley's match with Stockport County on the weekend managed to beat the elements and take place, but that would be the only piece of luck for Neil Smith's side. Liam Hogan's second half goal was the difference in Greater Manchester leaving the Ravens without a win in their last six games.

Key Players

Wrexham could hand a debut to on loan Peterborough United midfielder Kyle Barker after signing for the Dragons this week. The 19-year old signed professional terms with the Posh in 2019 having spent time out on loan in non-league with Kettering Town and Lowestoft. He made his United debut in the EFL Trophy against Arsenal U21 in the EFL Trophy before featuring again in the competition against Cambridge United and Ipswich Town. In January 2020 he faced Premier League Burnley in the FA Cup and now moves to Wrexham for more regular senior game time.

Striker Michael Cheek is already a veteran of the National League and has 13 goals in the division so far this term. The former Ebbsfleet United forward has pedigree when facing the Dragons scoring in a victory for Ebbsfleet in March of last year and forcing David Raven into an own goal for Dagenham two seasons ago. After scoring four goals in five over Christmas, Cheek has failed to find the net in his last five matches.

Head to Head

Our last match with each other came in November when Luke Young's screamer separated the two sides in North Wales. Both sides had been pushing before Young hit a sensational volley in the top corner. Our last trip to Hayes Lane saw current reds' striker JJ Hooper line up for the Ravens in a 2-0 win for the southern side.

Defenders James Jennings and Mark Carrington are out through injury whilst Akil Wright has continued his recovery.
