Match Preview | Wrexham (H)

U's host Reds at JCS

Colchester United will welcome Wrexham AFC to the JobServe Community Stadium on Saturday 6th April (KO 3pm).

The U’s managed to secure four points out of a possible six over the Easter weekend thanks to a brilliant home victory against Newport County and an away draw against Tranmere Rovers.

Danny Cowley’s men will now aim to add more points to the tally on Saturday, but standing in the way of that will be a promotion-chasing Wrexham side.

The Reds triumphed 2-0 against Mansfield Town in the League Two top of the table showdown at the Racecourse Ground on Good Friday.

Paul Mullin struck either side of the break to secure victory, with the brace taking the prolific striker onto twenty goals for the season and one short of the century milestone since joining Wrexham in the summer of 2021.

The victory kept Wrexham third in the table and on the same tally as Mansfield who arrived in north Wales as leaders but are now second, only behind Stockport.

Mullin's brace ensured Wrexham, who have six games remaining, strengthened their own position and put a dent in the Stags’ promotion push.

Following Good Friday’s win, Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson hailed a hard-working performance from all his players.

He said: "It was a hard-earned win. A gritty, determined performance. I thought the out-of-possession work was outstanding.

"Obviously, we respected Mansfield because of the season they are having but the way the lads worked, starting with the front-two and all the through the team, we restricted a very good Mansfield team to very little.

"There was a real physicality about our performance. We won headers, we were first to the ball all over the pitch.

"Of course, the quality at times could have been a little bit better but sometimes conditions dictate to a certain degree.

"That was a really good team performance. The lads are pleased and the staff are pleased because we put a lot of work during the week into that performance on the training pitch and the lads have really implemented it well."

Last Time We Met

The U’s succumbed to a 2-1 loss at the Racecourse Ground nine days before Christmas, despite Wrexham playing with ten men from the twenty-sixth minute onwards. Jayden Fevrier was on target for the North Essex side in the eighty-ninth minute, but it turned out to be a little too late to rescue any points.
