Wrexham back at The Racecourse against Maidenhead
PHIL PARKINSON still feels his team will get through bad times when playing at the racecourse with the help of the Reds fans.
Wrexham suffered just two home defeats last season, losing 2-0 to Yeovil in November before losing 5-4 to Grimsby Town in an epic play-off semi-final.
There were spells in games where things didn’t go well – Wrexham trailed 5-2 against Dover before staging a brilliant comeback to win 6-5 – and the Reds didn’t quite do it. their way in the last outing on the racetrack against Gateshead.
But Wrexham held on to win 3-1 and maintain the 100% home record in 2022-23.
Parkinson is hoping for a more comfortable afternoon when Wrexham host Maidenhead United tomorrow, but he knows he can always count on the fans to get behind him.
“I feel there’s a good connection between the fans and the players, who can feel it,” Parkinson said.
“A lot of games, like Gateshead and Dover last season, when things didn’t go our way, the fans played their part by being patient and understanding, and helping us get games back on track.
“We have offered solutions and answers on several occasions.
“Hopefully we don’t have to go back to games, but sometimes like Gateshead’s you have little periods in games where things don’t work as well as you would like.
“But as a team and as supporters as well, we have to make sure that we reset quickly and get through these patches and I think we did that well, and we’re going to continue to do that.”
Wrexham come into the game fresh off four successive wins, the latest being a 5-0 triumph over Dorking Wanderers last Saturday to keep the Reds second in the table.
“I always like to come back to a home game after a good win on our travels,” Parkinson added.
“We are now entering three games in seven days and Maidenhead’s is the first of those.
“Each week the teams come up with a different challenge and Maidenhead will be no different, but we’re full of confidence for the game and really looking forward to it.”
