Big week for Wrexham AFC on and off the pitch continues with a midweek trip to Maidenhead
Wrexham AFC approach Tuesday night’s away game at Maidenhead United with renewed optimism after a few impressive performances over the past week have revived their season.
The Dragons beat the Marine AFC minnows at Nantwich last Tuesday night in an FA Cup replay and followed that up with an impressive away win over Barnet on Saturday – a win that keeps Wrexham in touch with their colleagues who are candidates for promotion.
It was a complete win and although Dragons boss Phil Parkinson remains keen to downplay the recent tactical shift from five-at-the-back to four, the Reds have seemed a much more cohesive unit since the change.

After Barnet’s game, Parkinson said: “It’s still early days, we changed it up a bit, but it’s important to remember that we played with three center-backs at Aldershot (in the abandoned game) and we would have must have been 5-0 at half-time it’s all about the players on the pitch at the end of the day. “
“Having said that, we have scored five goals in two games since the change, we are obviously very happy about that.”
At the Maidenhead game, Parkinson said: “It’s all about the level of performance, the preparation starts now and we have to do there and play like we did today and that will give us a great chance to. take the points. “
“We will give Maidenhead the same respect we have given Barnet, we will think long and hard about the selection of the squad and we hope to come home on Tuesday night with the points in the bag.”
It’s a big week for the club on and off the pitch as the Reds look forward to two important league games against Maidenhead on Tuesday and then Torquay United on Saturday, two games that could propel the Dragons into promotion spots if the results are going their way.
It has been widely reported that club owners Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds will make their first racetrack appearance this weekend for the Torquay game.
Phil Parkinson and his men are desperately hoping to mark the occasion by cementing their promotional credentials by continuing their mini-cover.
