The reds are back on the road this weekend looking to extend their good run of form as they a pay a visit to Dagenham & Redbridge.


The Dragons come in to the game without a loss in their last three matches having put Havant & Waterlooville to the sword last weekend. Rekeil Pyke's first half effort was the difference between the two sides but it could have been more if it wasn't for the heroics of Hawks 'keeper Ben Dudzinski. It was a great way to follow up their previous victory which came over Barnet a week before, another 1-0 victory via Stuart Beavon's calm finish. On their travels Wrexham are without victory in their last two having drawn 0-0 with Harrogate Town and lost convincingly to Sutton United. 

For the Daggers, their poor start to the season can be summed up by their form in recent weeks. The East London side are without victory in their last five matches and sit 22nd with just two wins in the opening 15 games this term. Last time out they made the ardouous journey to Gateshead where the Heed found themsevles 2-0 up in the opening 20 minutes and that's how it remained. Last time at home they played host to Ebbsfleet United losing 3-1 and keeping them on just one victory at home so far this campaign. 

Key Players

Wrexham winger Jordan Maguire-Drew found himself back in the starting line-up for Samuel Ricketts' side and put in a solid performence against Havant last weekend, twice hitting the woodwork after his effort was denied by the goalkeeper. The winger on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion has three goals to his credit so far for Wrexham.

Daggers striker Elliott Romain tops the goal scoring charts with four for the season so far with his new club. Romain joined from Torquay United in the summer and his goals have earned them a point against Maidstone United and been the winner away to Barrow. Now without a goal in their last five, he'll be looking to get back among the goals.

Head to Head

We've met on a number of occasions in both non-league and in the Football League over the years. The last time we met was at the Racecourse where Michael Cheek nodded the winner to sink the Dragons 2-1 in North Wales. Last time out at Victoria Road a 90th minute own goal handed three points to Wrexham in a dramatic finale.
