Kick-off: 15:00

 

It has been a Christmas to forget for Wrexham AFC. On Boxing Day, Southport upset the Racecourse crowd two days before Wrexham lost at Halifax Town and then conceded defeat once again to the Sandgrounders last weekend.

 

Wrexham will be up against an in-form Woking as they are undefeated in the last six matches picking up seven out of a possible nine points during the festivities.

 

The Cardinals are currently seventh place in the Vanarama National League positioned four points and four places ahead of Wrexham thanks to an unstoppable form throughout December, but the Welsh club have two games in hand.

 

Team news

 

Not long after defeat at Haig Avenue, Wrexham boss Gary Mills signed Simon Heslop from Torquay United. The midfielder may make his debut against Woking after agreeing to join the club until the end of the season.

 

Wrexham’s Javan Vidal continues to fight for full fitness and is expected to make a return to training at the end of the month.

 

Woking will be without Dan Holman after the forward has completed his loan to return to Colchester United after a deadly spell at Kingfield with 14 goals in 26 appearances. The 25-year-old is speculated to sign for league leaders Cheltenham Town.

This is, no doubt, a must three points for Wrexham to get the ball back rolling. We’re into the stages of the season where slip-ups cannot be accepted otherwise the playoff spots will become more than difficult for Wrexham to achieve their season’s overall aim.

 

The defeat away to Southport, you could say, looked a bit more promising by scoring a couple of goals and only lost by one when comparing the losses on Boxing Day and at Halifax.

 

A win over Woking this weekend will give the squad that much needed confidence boost especially when you overcome your league rivals. The win would be a statement to other rivals that they are still in the race for promotion.
