After a period of calm and rest for the Wrexham boys, having played no games after the game against Kidderminster was called off due to poor weather conditions and there last game ending in a 5-2 defeat to Lager Brewery, Matty Thomas is hoping Bury will be the start of something magical for a new year and for a kickstart to the league campaign which has pitted the reds up against six of the strongest teams in the division. With Bury travelling down to Stansty Park, Wrexham will be hoping to get that illusive first league win and manager Matty Thomas will be hoping that this Saturday will deliver that.
Thomas has 14 lads available with Steve Garnett leading the reds out at Stansty for the second time, as club captain Dyfan Jones is out of the game due to a back injury sustained during the defeat against Rochdale, so Garnett will be looking to spur the lads on for that first win, also facing late fitness tests are Aaron Jones and Liam Partyn who are both struggling with niggles ahead of the game, so Wrexham will be hoping they are both fit to be included in the match day squad.
Some good news coming from the Wrexham camp Is that Josh Tinney and Jason Richards are both set to return to the team, with Tinney missing the 6 games due to club matters that have now been resolved between player and club so he will be involved for the visit of Bury, whilst Jason Richards is returning to the side after missing the last game against Larger Brewery due to a dispute with the Wrexham management, both players will be hoping to put this behind them and wear the Wrexham shirt with pride this coming Saturday.
Manager Matty Thomas said on Friday evening “with the visit of bury, we are hoping for that first win that we have been craving for since we beat Southport almost 3 months ago, I am missing Dyfan, which is a big loss, so Steve Garnett will lead the lads out and he will be controlling that midfield as he has done for every game he has played, he is a credit to the team”, “Dan Sears will be drafted into the centre of defence and with Jason coming back into the fold, after all the speculation of him wanting to quit the club, they will be hoping to stop that bury attack from getting near Nathan Williams’ goal, this gives me a great chance to see how we far against a team we haven’t played before”, “I’m hoping all the lads are geared and ready for this and we want that first league win” “I’m sweating on the fitness of both Liam and Azzy, I am hoping that they both pass the fitness tests so I can include them in my team”.
Wrexham take on Bury FC at Stansty Park with a 1030 kick off.
Come down and support the town!
