Following two long trips on the road in the previous week, the Dragons return home to the Racecourse to play host to high-flying Bromley.

Form

Wrexham come into the game on an improved but still losing performance having fallen to a 1-0 defeat away at Torquay United on Tuesday. Dean Keates' side had an array of chances but couldn't find the back of the Gulls net, before a second-half strike made the reds rue their chances. It now leaves Wrexham without a league win in seven matches.

Bromley are unbeaten in their last three games and sit top of the National League table. Neil Smith's side are flying high after a fantastic start having lost just three of their opening 19 games this campaign. They faced Stockport County on Tuesday where an own goal and Recco Hackett-Fairchild strike could only earn a 2-2 draw at Hayes Lane.

Key Players

On loan forward Ben Tollitt found himself back in the squad on Tuesday coming off the bench as Wrexham looked to get back into the game. Currently on a temporary switch from Blackpool, Tollitt has made eleven appearances, scoring once so far in his second Racecourse stint, and having recently extended his loan spell he'll be looking to break into the side under Keates.

Ravens striker Michael Cheek has netted eight goals in all competitions so far this season and the veteran of the National League is looking for a successful season with the ambitious Bromley. Cheek has played for the likes of Braintree and Dagenham over the years scoring regularly in non-league's top tier and has scored at the Racecourse previously, most recently in a 2-1 Daggers win in 2018.

Head to Head

Our last meeting came at Hayes Lane with the Ravens running out 2-0 winners back in January, whilst our last game at the Cae Ras ended 2-2 after a stoppage-time own goal handed a point to the visitors. In our previous eight meetings Wrexham have three wins, Bromley have three and we've drawn twice.

Team News

Wrexham will be without Manny Smith who remains sidelined whilst JJ Hooper missed out on Tuesday through injury alongside captain Shaun Pearson.
