Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson has stated that he expects a ‘terrific’ encounter against Stockport County this Saturday.
Wrexham travel to Edgeley Park in high spirits, hoping to extend their recent run of form.
Last time out, the Welsh side defeated Grimsby Town 3-0 at home, with to goals from Ollie Palmer, Will Boyle, and Elliot Lee.
Parkinson is now focused on their next opponents, as reported by the Evening Leader: “The game (against Grimsby) had a really good feel to it, the atmosphere was terrific, and it was a real, professional performance.”
“You enjoy that winning feeling but straight away this week there is a real focus on the next game, and getting the work right so we go into the Stockport game as sharp as we were on Saturday.
“It is going to be another terrific game and we go to Stockport in good spirits. We keep building and keep working, and look to keep improving.”
Wrexham head to Stockport
Wrexham and Stockport have a bit of a rivalry and the pair competed for the National League title back in 2022, with the latter coming out on top in the end. Both sides are aiming to get promoted to League One now.
Parkinson’s side were beaten on the opening day of the campaign at home to MK Dons but haven’t lost since then. They are unbeaten in their last seven league outings and have risen up to 4th in the table.
The Red Dragons have won their last three games in a row and are gaining some momentum. They are three points behind table toppers Gillingham and are outside the top three on goal difference.
Stockport County made a difficult start to the season under Dave Challinor as they nursed their wounds after losing the play-off final to Carlisle United on penalties at Wembley last season. However, they have won their previous two away games against AFC Wimbledon and MK Dons, indicating that they have turned a corner.
The game on Saturday is already beautifully poised, with two teams in a confident attitude. The stadium is also sold out, which should create an exciting atmosphere.
