Following our first defeat in pre-season at the weekend, Wrexham are looking to get back to winning ways as we travel to Altrincham (Tuesday 25th July 2017, 7:45 kick-off).

The Dragons' 100% preseason win record went out the window as Dean Keates opted to rest a number of first team players. We travelled to Nantwich on Saturday following victories over Lex, Cefn Druids, Louletano, Stafford Rangers and Warrington. Former youth team player Jordan Davies gave the Dabbers the lead and the home side held on to secure an impressive victory.

Altrincham have had a positive pre-season with a couple of impressive victories. The Robins were relegated last season from the National League North and in their last two games have played out victories over Cymru Alliance side Rhyl and the National League's Chester FC.

Wrexham are beginning to take shape as we look ahead to August 5th, which is now less than two weeks away. Youngster Olly Marx has had a good run in the side and will be looking to compete with fellow centre-halves Shaun Pearson and Manny Smith. 

Altrincham have a number of quality experienced players in their first team as they look to return to non-league's second tier. Jerome Wright is familiar with winning promotion having done so with FC United of Manchester. Meanwhile, Jake Moult, who played for the club in the National League and has stuck with the side is the brother of former Dragon and Scottish Premier League star Louis Moult.

Wrexham and Altrincham have met on a number of occasions in the last few years. The last time we faced off at Moss Lane where the points were shared. Alty took the lead before Simon Heslop's equaliser for the Dragons levelled proceedings.

Chris Holroyd, Sam Wedgbury, Jack Mackreth, Chris Dunn and Ntumba Massanka were all rested on Saturday, but some (expect Tums) could feature on Tuesday.
