Following a string of disappointing results in recent weeks the Dragons will be raring to get back on the pitch to put things right against Dagenham & Redbridge.
Wrexham come into the game on the back of possibly our worst disaply of the season after a midweek hammering at the hands of Ebbsfleet United. Second half strikes from Corey Whitely, Danny Kedwell and Luke Coulson separated the sides as the Fleet ran riot to extend their unbeaten run to nine matches. As for Wrexham it now leaves us without a victory since beating Maidstone United at the end of March, where since we’ve drawn with Bromley and Eastleigh but taste defeat against Boreham Wood and Ebbsfleet.
Dagenham haven been in some good form as of late but were denied the opportunity to make it five unbeaten after Tuesday’s trip to Guiseley was postponed a second time. Last time out they drew 1-1 with now-managerless Woking, where Dan Sparkes ninth-minute opener wasn’t enough for maximum points. Their last victory came the week prior where they overcame Maidstone to run out 2-1 winners at Victoria Road.
Wrexham midfielder Marcus Kelly has been a standout performer in recent weeks featuring both in the middle and out on the left wing. The Kettering-born middle-man has looked energetic in recent weeks and had an influence on the midfield.
Dagenham & Redbridge have lost a whole host of players due to financial trouble this term but have managed to keep the likes of 22-year old forward Fejiri Okenabirhie who’s struck ten goals for the Daggers this term. The former Arsenal attacker last got on the scoresheet in the 2-1 win over Maidstone.
Our last meeting came in October 2017 at Victoria Road where an own goal settled the match in stoppage time, handing three points Wrexham’s way. The last time we met at the Racecourse it was the Daggers who ran out victors. Wrexham’s win this season was the first over this weekend’s opponents and will now be looking to make it two.
Wrexham will be without Chris Holroyd who remains sidelined with a foot injury whilst Sam Wedgbury remains a doubt. Kevin Roberts will be serving his third and final game with suspension and will be available the following week against Leyton Orient.
