Every day this week we'll be providing a statistical review of the 2020-21 season, concentrating on a different aspect of the campaign. Today, we focus on goalscoring:
Wrexham scored 3 or more goals in league games 10 times in 2020-21: we've only done that more often in one season in the last 18 seasons (11 in 2011-12).
Wrexham scored 4 or more goals in league games 5 times in 2020-21: we've only done that more often in one season in the last 28 seasons (9 in 2011-12).
The Kings Lynn game was the highest aggregate score in a Wrexham game since 19/2/11 Gateshead (h) 2-7
The 0-0 draw at Sutton in March ended a run of 46 away games without a goalless draw. The run began at Aldershot in December 2018., and coincidentally its final match was a 3-0 loss at Aldershot. It’s the second longest run of its kind we’ve had in the National League and the 12th longest in our history.
Wrexham were awarded 2 penalties in a match for the first time since 28/01/2017 Borehamwood (h) 2-1 (scored by Anthony Barry and John Rooney).
There were 3 penalties awarded in the Solihull Moors match, the first time in a Wrexham game since 28/01/2017 Borehamwood (h) 2-1 (all scored).
For the 9th time in Wrexham's history, we scored 4 or more goals in back-to-back away games, the 7th time we've done it in league matches, the 5th since we joined the Football League in 1921, and the 5th time we've won 2 consecutive away games by a margin of four or more goals.
Reece Hall-Johnson scored the winning goal at Weymouth in injury time. Our previous winning goal scored in injury time: 21/10/2017 Craig Robson (o.g.) Dagenham (a) 1-0
Our revious winning goal scored by a Wrexham player in injury time: 28/01/2017 John Rooney (pen) Borehamwood (h) 2-1
Our previous winning goal scored in open play by a Wrexham player in injury time: 16/8/16 Mark Carrington Solihull Moors (h) 1-0
Two games before Carrington’s winning goal against Solihull, Paul Rutherford scored the winning goal in injury time at Guiseley; after 2 winners in added time in 3 games, we then went 207 games without a Wrexham player scoring a winner in injury time.
