Following a stalemate at the CNG Stadium at the weekend Wrexham and Harrogate are forced to battle it out once more for a place in the FA Cup First Round proper.


The two sides come into the game on the back of a goalless draw in Yorkshire on Saturday. Having faced eachother twice in the space of a month neither side has managed to score against eachother. Wrexham had the ball in the back of the net twice on Satruday however the whistle had already gone for a foul as Luke Young thrashed the ball home and Mike Fondop's superb lob in the second half was chalked off for offisde. Right at the death former red Mark Beck almost won it for Harrogate but he somehow headed the ball over from just a couple of yards out, meaning the two would finalise the tie in North Wales. 

Key Players

Dragons goalkeeper Rob Lainton has been in fine form this season having done well to deny Harrogate on Saturday and keep his 11th clean sheet of the season having made 17 appearances. The on loan shot-stopper arrived from Port Vale in the summer and has continued to maintain Wrexham's excellent defensive prowess. 

Having scored in his previous three games before the clash with Wrexham, Aaron Williams will be keen to get back to finding the back of the net for Harrogate. Williams had scored three with the last time he failed to find himself on the scoresheet coming against Wrexham in the National League. At the Cae Ras he'll be looking to end his draught against the Dragons.

Head to Head

Having drawn 0-0 twice this season we've met Harrogate just once beforehand. It came last season at the Racecourse in the FA Trophy where a Beck doubled sent the visitors through to the second round.

Team News

Wrexham defender Manny Smith and striker Chris Holroyd remain sidelined as well as left-back James Jennings. Luke Summerfield was forced off on Saturday and will be assessed.
