Eastleigh v Wrexham 

Date: 07/03/2018

Kick-Off: 15:00

Location: Ten Acres Stadium

Competition: Vanarama National League

Andy Davies' Wrexham side will be looking for an instant reply following the end of our unbeaten run, as we make the long trip to Hampshire to face Eastleigh.

Wrexham come into the game on the back of our first defeat in 2018, the last coming in a 4-1 defeat to table-toppers Macclesfield Town in December 2017. Boreham Wood visited the Racecourse last weekend and a controversial Bruno Andrade penalty proved to be the difference in a match remembered for all the wrong reasons. Kevin Roberts was sent off following an altercation with Andrade and by five o'clock Wrexham fell to fourth in the table, but still well in the title race. Last time on the road a James Jennings goal at Bromley wasn't enough to seal the points, as the Ravens netted an equaliser from the spot to share the points.

Eastleigh will be full of confidence following a superb 2-0 away win over promotion chasers Aldershot Town and will be looking to carry on that form. Goals from Chris Zebroski and Paul McCallum were the difference as the Spitfires hit their stride. It was a great way to respond to going two matches without a win, drawing with Leyton Orient and losing away at Tranmere to finish March.

 

Wrexham midfielder Jack Mackreth was given his first outing since the end of February on Saturday when coming off the bench and showed signs of the ability to make a difference. Chasing the game he got forward well and was extremely unlucky not to be awarded a penalty late on. The former Bury man will be looking to stake a claim in the side with just five games to go. 

Eastleigh forward Zebroski hit his ninth goal of the season last weekend which ties him at the club's top marksman this term with nine goals. The former Newport County striker now has two in his last three games and bagged a superb hatrick against Hartlepool United at the end of January.

 

In our seven meetings thus far in eachother's history to go on, you'd be forgiven for thinking this one may end all square. Four matches have ended draws, three of which came at the Silverlake. Wrexham have two wins to their name, a 3-0 hammering in 2014 and a 2-1 win in front of the BT Sport cameras earlier this term. Eastleigh have just the one win to their name, a 2-3 victory at the Cae Ras which Wrexham ended with 10 men.

Wrexham will be without suspended Kevin Roberts following his straight red card last weekend.
