Wrexham return to the Cae Ras this weekend as Dean Keates' side look to lift themselves following disappointment last weekend.

Form

Wrexham's three game unbeaten run came to a crushing end last weekend with a stoppage time goal sealing three points for Chesterfield at the Proact. Will Evans' own goal was cancelled out less than five minutes later whilst in the second half Jordan Pontichelli netted to regain the lead before being pegged back once more. With both sides pushing for a winner it was the home side who broke through with a shot smashing the underside of the bar and being judged as over the line by the linesmen. It ended an unbeaten run which included wins over Woking and Harrogate Town as well as a draw with Dagenham.

Torquay made the arduous journey to Barrow last weekend with the Gulls initially stunning the table-topping Bluebirds by taking a second half lead through Kyle Cameron. However, two ex Wrexham men (Scott Quigley and John Rooney) scored within five minutes of eachother to hand United their second loss in their last five games in the National League.

Key Players

Wrexham's on-loan striker Jordan Pontichelli started his first game last weekend forcing Evans into an error and finding the net himself at Chesterfield. The forward on loan from Coventry City put in a magnificent performance full of tireless running and attacking intent, and has put himself in good stead to get a run in the first XI.

Striker Jamie Reid is once again having a storming season having scored 17 so far this campaign. The Northern-Irishman was an integral part of last season's promotion and has shone once more. However, Reid has just one goal thus far in 2020 and wil look to stop the drop in the table for his side by finding the net regularly once more, starting on Saturday.

Head to Head

We last met at Plainmoor in October with Liam Davis' effort the difference between the two sides. Our last North Wales match-up was one to remember for the Dragons with Chris Holroyd's hatrick and Manny Smith brushing aside the Gulls 4-0, with a crowd consisting of several hundred Magdeburg fans.

Team News

Midfielder Akil Wright has continued his recovery with a spell out of action whilst James Jennings and Mark Carrington remain sidelined.
