Form Guide

Despite a slow start, Luke Garrard’s side put on a much-improved performance in the second half and will be frustrated not to have left with three points.

The Wood have travelled well this season and have lost just once on the road since September.

They are currently sat in sixth place, just two points off third place. A win over Wrexham would see the visitors leapfrog their counterparts in the table.

The home side have the best defensive record in the division, having conceded just 31 times all season.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“We are in tomorrow (Saturday) and we are going to work on Wrexham. They will be spoken about, we will look at how they go about their business and how we can cause them problems.

“We will regroup, we will go again, and we will analyse the little bits, in terms of what went on against Barrow.

“The focus turns to Wrexham, we set ourselves a target of what we wanted over the Easter period and let’s hope that we can get it.

“Defensively they are very strong, so they are organised on set-plays and they are organised on balls into the box.

“I think that they have got great personnel across the board, in terms of the wide boys, and the two strikers up top; Chris Holroyd I think is up there in the goal scoring ranks.

“They don’t score many, but I remember when they came here, they soaked up a lot of pressure and dealt with a lot of what we had to offer, and they scored from a set-piece.

“I think that is fundamentally where their strength is. They have got a massive pitch down there, so it is going to be expansive and it is going to be about energy and tempo.”
