PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC (A)

access_time 9 months ago

Justin Edinburgh’s men continued their excellent start to the season after last Saturday’s 3-1 win over Bromley.

Skipper Jobi McAnuff pulled the O’s back level in the second-half with a stunning free-kick, before Josh Koroma’s breath-taking strike moments later put the O’s ahead. Macauley Bonne wrapped up the points with a close-range finish to send his side back to the top of the National League table.

Equally, Sam Ricketts’ Wrexham have made an impressive start to the season and currently sit in third place with 42 points.

Last time out, Wrexham secured a point at Maidstone United when Simon Walton’s 64th minute opener was cancelled out by Brad Walker seven minutes later.

TEAM NEWS

Charlie Lee and Sam Ling returned to training last week but may see the trip to Wrexham come too soon for the pair. Meanwhile, Charlie Grainger is recovering from surgery on a broken wrist sustained in training.

Otherwise, Justin Edinburgh will have similar squad at his disposal as the one he named for the home clash with Bromley.
