Location: My Racecourse
Competition: Vanarama National League

After a long campaign of highs and lows, it all comes down to this weekend where the faintest of chances are left for Wrexham, who’ll be hoping to knock our opponents out of the top seven…
Wrexham are without a win since March and have all but ended their chances of a place in the top seven come five o’clock on Saturday evening. Last time out they had to beat Leyton Orient following a dramtic drop in form, but fell to a 1-0 loss at Leyton Orient through Macauley Bonne’s header 29 minutes in. It was Wrexham third defeat on the bounce, having lost 2-1 at home to Dagenham & Redbridge seven days previous and a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Ebbsfleet.
AFC Fylde are currently in their first year in the National League and could make it back to back promotions, but they know they need to maintain their place in the play-offs. They come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with escape artists Solihull Moors last weekend.
Every Wrexham player will be looking to finish strongly having fallen short in the last month of the season. The Dragons won’t want to see another side achieve the play-offs at their home ground and all will be seeking a positive finish.
Fylde striker Danny Rowe netted over 40 goals last season and has grabbed an impressive 24 so far this year, sitting second in the race for the golden boot. The powerful forward has caused problems for a whole host of sides this year and will be looking to fire Fylde to promotion.
We’ve met twice in competitive competitions, both coming this season. We met in the league and the FA Cup in October within 10 days. The first was in the FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round where the Coasters ran out 1-0 victors. Less than two weeks later in the league, it was also Fylde who took the spoils at Mill Farm. This weekend sees us face off for the first time ever at the Racecourse.
Wrexham forward Chris Holroyd is a doubt due to a toe injury, whilst Andy Davies has no other new concerns.
