WHO ARE THE SHOTS PLAYING?
Shots take a trip to Hollywood to take on Wrexham on Saturday, looking to make it a fourth win in six. Wrexham will welcome the Shots to the Racecourse Ground this weekend, after dropping back down to second place, following a draw at Wealdstone last weekend.
HOW DID THEY GET ON LAST SEASON?
Wrexham finished second last campaign, 6 points off league winners Stockport. In the playoffs, Wrexham lost a thrilling semi-final 5-4 to eventual playoff winners Grimsby Town. It was a tale of more heartbreak in the FA Trophy for Wrexham, losing the final 1-0 to Bromley, and the FA Cup saw them exit in the first round, losing 2-1 to Harrogate Town after beating Marine in the fourth qualifying round.
HOW DID WE DO AGAINST THEM LAST SEASON?
Wrexham were winners in both fixtures last season, with a 5-0 win at the EBB in November followed by a 4-1 victory at the Racecourse Ground for Wrexham, with Giles Phillips scoring the only goal for Shots in the away fixture.
WHO IS THEIR GAFFER?
Wrexham are currently managed by Phil Parkinson. Making over 500 appearances during his playing days, Parkinson took his first step into management with Colchester United in 2003. Parkinson went on to manage Hull, Charlton, Bradford, Bolton, Sunderland, and joined current side Wrexham in July 2021. Currently in his second season, Parkinson is sitting second in the league, looking to take his side into the Football League.
WREXHAM SQUAD UPDATE:
Top scorers Paul Mullin and Ollie Palmer are both likely to start, having both played all 20 games, getting 10+ goals each. Centre back Aaron Hayden should also start for the Welsh side, putting Tyler Cordner’s 5 goals to shame, having already netted 10 this season. New addition from Carlisle United Mark Howard seems to be Parkinson’s trusted number 1 in net, having played all 20 games and racking up 1800 minutes so far this season, with centre back Ben Tozer the only other member of the squad to play 1800 minutes.
Wrexham have no other absentees through suspension or injury, so will be likely to play their best 11 on Saturday.
None of the current Wrexham squad have turned out for Aldershot.
