Wrexham enter the final six games of the Vanarama National League campaign with it all to play for as Bryan Hughes takes his side to Ebbsfleet United for our second successive fixture on the road.

Form

Wrexham come into the game on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Hartlepool United last weekend. The Dragons fell behind to a first-half penalty and couldn't recover, with the Pools holding on to earn maximum points in the North-East. It wasn't the way Hughes' side wanted to follow up a fine 1-0 victory over Maidstone United at the Racecourse where Ben Tolitt's strike handed the Dragons three points. Wrexham's last away win came in mid-February in a midweek win over Boreham Wood.

As for Ebbsfleet, they're currently on a four-game unbeaten run in the National League. They were last in action last weekend travelling to FC Halifax Town where the points were shared in a goalless draw. Beforehand they made the trip across Kent to take on Maidstone United at the Gallagher Stadium with goals from Gozie Ugwu and Michael Cheek sealing the victory. 

Key Players

Wrexham midfielder Kemy Agustien made his debut for the Dragons last weekend against Hartlepool and showcased some of the ability that has seen him play at such a high level. The calm and collective 32-year old showed his ability on the ball and his range of passing and has himself vowed to step up in his performances for the final run in.

As for Ebbsfleet, winger Corey Whitley has eight goals this season and will be looking to push on at the business end of the campaign to seal a place in the play-offs. Whitley scored in this fixture last season as Fleet ran out 3-0 winners and with his pace and finishing is always a threat.

Head to Head

We've met on a number of occasions over the last decade with the last game being at the Racecourse back in September. A first half butchering from Wrexham saw the Dragons lead 4-0 at half-time through Chris Holroyd, Stuart Beavon, Rekeil Pyke and Shaun Pearson before Danny Kedwell pulled one back in the second half to end it at 4-1. Our last visit to Ebbsfleet saw the home side run out rampant 3-0 winners on a night to forget for the Reds.

Team News

Wrexham will continue to look at Mark Carrington who's been out in recent weeks whilst Luke Summerfield has returned to training.
