Wrexham's final away game of the 2018/19 season has arrived as the Dragons make their way to FC Halifax Town on Easter Monday.

Form

Wrexham have hit form at a crucial time with three wins on the spin going into the clash in Yorkshire. It was a very Good Friday for the town as Kieran Kennedy's strike handed three points to Wrexham on a baking hot day in North Wales. It followed late dramatics at Barnet six days previous with goals from Shaun Pearson and Jermaine McGlashan. 

As for Halifax, they've failed to win in their last five matches with the latest disappointment coming on Friday, as the Shaymen surrendered a 1-0 lead to go on and lose 2-1 at Hartlepool. Two points out of the last 15 available has seen Halifax slip to 18th in the National League. Their last victory did, however, come over high-flying Solihull as Manny Duku and Devante Rodney found the net.

Key Players

Dragons midfielder Luke Summerfield has impressed upon his return from injury which saw him missing for the last two months. The Wrexham middle-man took to the field against Barnet before a longer stint off the bench against Sutton, making an impact early on and pushing the reds forward. Summerfield will be hoping to be a boost to the promotion charge as the playoffs loom.

As for Halifax, former Wrexham striker Scott Quigley is currently on loan with the Shaymen from Blackpool. Wrexham know all about the powerful forward who scored eight goals in half a season at the Racecourse. He's got just two goals since signing for Halifax in January.

Head to Head

We've met on a number of occasions over the years with the most recent coming in September at the Racecourse, ending in a 0-0 draw. Our last trip to the Shay was in October 2017 ending in the same scoreline. Wrexham have being facing Halifax since the early 1920's so it's a game with plenty of history. One unwelcome record Wrexham will be looking to break is a first league win at the Shay since March 1993.

Team News

Wrexham defenders Manny Smith and Jake Lawlor remain sidelined as well as midfielder Brad Walker.
