Wrexham travel to Stockport County in highly anticipated League Two clash
Following four straight wins in all competitions, Wrexham head into their next fixture full of confidence knowing a win against Stockport County would be a real statement of intent.
Wrexham’s only league defeat dates back to the opening weekend of the season, with the Welsh outfit undefeated in their following seven league matches.
Phil Parkinson’s teams 3-0 demolition of Grimsby Town last weekend was labelled their best performance so far but know a trip to Edgerly Park will provide a completely different test.
In terms of team news Aaron Hayden looks like he is set to keep his spot in the back three after recovering from a dead leg against Doncaster Rovers a fortnight ago.
There is some concern though for Wrexham’s record signing Ollie Palmer with Phil Parkinson hoping he’ll pass a fitness test ahead of the away trip, telling The Leader: “Ollie has had a bit of a problem with his knee. We have had it scanned, it is nothing serious and we will just have to monitor him during the week. Ollie had a decent off-season, and he has got himself fitter. He has been working on his game which is obviously important, and he got his rewards at the weekend with a well-taken goal.”
Stockport County were labelled one of the favourites for the League Two title at the start of the campaign and after a slow start to the season, the Hatters finally seem to be finding their rhythm.
Back to back away wins has put Dave Challinor’s men a couple of points from the play off positions and with a win on Saturday they could climb into the top seven for the first time.
This fixture is the first meeting since the 2021-2022 Vanarama National League season where the two sides went head-to head as both teams chased down the title. Ultimately, it was County who would clinch promotion and claim an EFL return.
The Red Dragons would not be disheartened though, and a season later would end their 15-year exile from the EFL in a record breaking 2022-23 campaign.
The two sides will lock horns once again with the game scheduled for Saturday 23rd September 15:00 at Edgeley Park Infront of a sold-out crowd.
