Wrexham v Yeovil: Match Day Preview

It must be one of the safest bets in sport at present – Wrexham to win at home.

The Dragons host Yeovil at The Racecourse on Tuesday night, eager to continue a near perfect record this season in front of their own fans.

In 21 matches at their place, Wrexham have won 20 times. The only dropped points came when they were surprisingly held to a 2-2 draw at home to Woking on Valentine’s Day.

Since then, not so much kisses as a smack in the kisser for every National League club who’ve ventured into North Walian territory.

The upshot of that dominance is that Phil Parkinson’s side are top of the table with just three matches to go and just two wins from clinching automatic promotion back to the Football League.

With a game in hand over Notts County, Wrexham are still top of the league by a single point, even though they wobbled last weekend by drawing 0-0 at Barnet.

Two more wins at home – on Tuesday night and on Saturday against Boreham Wood – and they will be champions, no matter what Notts County do in their two remaining matches.

Wrexham could start the celebrations before they go to Torquay for their last match of the season on April 29.

It started at home for Wrexham, with a 2-1 win over Eastleigh on August 6 and they can finish at home with the next 180 minutes.

“Tuesday is about setting up Saturday,” said manager Parkinson.

“Our eyes are purely focussed on the Yeovil game. Like I have said all along, our job is to take care of our own business.

“We know the task ahead of us and it starts with Yeovil. We have got to get ready to play well against Yeovil and give us the best chance of taking another large step on the way to the title.”

Parkinson will be on the touchline as usual, despite his weekend red card at Barnet.

The 55-year-old was dismissed for his post-match protestations over Callum McFadzean being sent off after catching goalkeeper Laurie Walker with his trailing right leg during their goalless draw.

But there is no automatic touchline ban for a manager or coach receiving a red card in the National League and Parkinson’s case is set to be reviewed by the Football Association of Wales, under whose disciplinary control Wrexham fall under.

Wrexham could be without McFadzean as well as injury concerns Jacob Mendy, Andy Cannon and Aaron Hayden against visitors who held the leaders to a 1-1 draw in Somerset back in August.

Things have gone downhill for Yeovil since the summer, however, and they are currently staring relegation in the face, despite a battling 2-2 draw at Solihull Moors last weekend.

Yeovil have not won in nine games and can only avoid the drop if they win their final three matches and other results go in their favour.

Notts County don’t play on Tuesday and must wait on the Wrexham result before they complete their own campaign away at Maidstone United on Saturday, before a final home match against York City.
