Match Preview: Wrexham AFC (A)

27 October 2020

The Bees make the long trip to North Wales as they take on Wrexham AFC in Vanarama National League action this evening.

FIXTURE DETAILS:

Wrexham AFC vs Barnet FC

Tuesday 27th October, 19:00 KO

The Racecourse Ground

Vanarama National League matchday five. 

THE RED DRAGONS

League Position: 11th (P5 W2 L3)

Last Result: Solihull Moors 4-0 Wrexham AFC (FA Cup, Saturday 24th Oct)

Manager: Dean Keates 

Club Captain: Shaun Pearson 

The hosts have had a mixed start to the 2020/21 campaign, having won two of their opening five league matches so far. The Red Dragons won two of their opening three fixtures, starting with an impressive opening day victory over Boreham Wood on home soil before a defeat to Solihull Moors followed the following Tuesday. They won their third match of the season and surprised a few by securing all three points against Yeovil Town at Huish Park. However, since then the Welsh side have seen a downturn in results and performances to boot, they lost at home to Maidenhead United in front of the BT Sport cameras, before conceding four goals to newly-promoted Wrexham as they lost 4-3 to the Stones.

The pressure is mounting on tomorrow's opponents following a heavy defeat to Solihull Moors in the Emirates FA Cup last weekend. They have now conceded eight goals in their last two matches and the Bees will feel confident that they could take advantage of what look's to be a shaky Wrexham backline. With the pressure firmly set on our hosts to stop the rot in form, the Bees will want to set the tempo early on and take the game to their Welsh counterparts. 

THE BEES

The mood in the camp will be electric following Saturday's Emirates FA Cup victory over Leiston, as the Bees beat the odds with a severely depleted squad to progress into the First Round Proper. However, attention now turns to National League action as we return to league football for the first time in two weeks, where we secured a 1-0 win over Weymouth thanks to a first-half strike from Wes Fonguck. However, the Bees will still be without several First Team players following the news last week that many squad players are currently self-isolating following positive COVID-19 tests. Peter Beadle also remains out of the dugout as he continues to self isolate because of his positive test result. 

After a busy summer with several new players coming in, you get the sense that things are slowly coming together for the Bees, as they look to make it three wins on the spin in all competitions. Saturday's performance showed that this group that has been assembled over the summer have amazing togetherness and spirit, it would have been easy to let Saturday pass us by, but the Bees perseverance secured them a well-earned victory. If that same fight can be shown tomorrow evening at the Racecourse Ground, then the foundations are once again there for another away day victory. 

LAST TIME WE MET:

The last time we travelled to Wrexham, a goal for either side in the opening 10 minutes shaped the result, as we headed home with a solid point in a 1-1.

Match Reports

Match Pack: Wrexham 0-0 Barnet

27 October 2020

The Bees took a hard earned point home from the Racecourse Ground as they played out a stalemate with Wrexham on a cold evening in North Wales.

HOW IT HAPPENED

In an open first 10 minutes, neither side really threatened with a clear cut opportunity. The game was very much a stop-start affair for the opening 25 minutes with chances at a premium at a chilly Racecourse Ground. 

The first real opening came on 28 minutes as Anthony Jeffrey swung a near-post cross in that just evaded Elliott Durrell at the near post, before falling into the palms of Aymen Azaze. 

Azaze was called into action seven minutes before the break, as he did just enough to parry an effort from Kwame Thomas. The Bees then went up field, with Eliot Richards having a strike deflected into the palms of Rob Lainton in the host's goal. 

There were no further chances before the break and a scoreline of nil-nil was a fair reflection in an uneventful first half. 

The first chance of the second half fell the way of Barnet, as Alex McQueen's powerful free-kick was well saved by Lainton at the near post. Meanwhile, on the hour mark, Jeffrey stung the palms of Azaze with a decent effort from the corner of the penalty area. 

The hosts started to build a bit of momentum as they forced several corners that had the Bees penned back towards their own goal. However, through the defensive leadership of the returning Matt Preston, the Bees managed to negate the danger. 

Much like the first half, the game never gained any sort of rhythm or momentum with fouls breaking up play on regular occasions. 

The Bees almost found the breakthrough with 12 minutes left on the watch as a quick breakaway found Pertrasso, but the Canadians effort was saved by Lainton. 

Steve Jenkins then introduced Alfie Pavey into the action as he replaced Michael Petrasso with ten minutes left to play. 

The Bees almost nicked it right at the death as yet another quick counter attack, found Josh Walker who did well to find the space, but his effort was well saved by Rob Lainton. 

All in all, it was a good point for the Bees, who will be pleased with their work considering the difficult circumstances they have faced in the previous 10 days. 

Barnet: Azaze, Pascal, Connors, Preston, Dunne (c), McQueen, Richards, Petrasso (Pavey 80'), Hooper, Taylor, Walker. 

Unused Subs: Callan, McBurnie, Hernandez, Vasiliou.
