Wrexham Form Suggests Imps Can Do Mansfield & Grimsby a Favour.

With Mansfield Town and Kidderminster now level on points and Newport County just 2 points back, Wrexham come to Sincil Bank desperate to put some breathing  space between them and the chasing pack. They also meet Lincs rivals Grimsby Town, who are just 3 points back with a game in hand, in the Trophy final later in this month at Wembley. Ex Imp Dean Keates is set to captain Wrexham against us , yet incredibly Simmo’s 18th placed resurgent Imps can do the double over them. A 4-2 win in October started a great run for the Imps and current form suggests they are anything less than on fire. However the biggest obsticle to three points for either side is the weather, with a pitch inspection TOMORROW morning at 11am

As usual our ban precludes us from being at the game, but a massive welcome to the travelling Dragons, thank you for reading the Form of the Foe courtesy of Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

GROUND GUIDE

The Dragons sit top, by virtue of goal difference whilst the Imps sit 18th. They are level on points with the Stags and Kidderminster who won at the Mariners (1-3) on Saturday. Newport sit fourth after a disappointing 1-1 draw at basement boys Ebbsfleet. The Dragons lost 2-1 at Dartford whilst the Imps beat as all around or below them drew or lost.

Wrexham FC.png The Dragons Form

In reality Wrexham’s form is good, the Dragons have won 5 of their last 7, but it is the faltering of Grimsby and those around them plus the momentum of Mansfield and the Harriers that has seen them only first in terms of League position. But then that is what counts in a marathon.  The defeat at Dartford on Saturday and Gainsborough in the Trophy (they came through 3-2 on aggregate) has exposes chinks in Morrell’s bullish 4-3-3. The Imps conjured a win by exploiting this with many at the time suggesting new Gaffer Simmo’s advise and formation expertise, played a part.  The Dragons are a pleasure to watch going forward, however the midfield and central defence can be routed on the counter.

Keeper corner- Chris Maxwell

Chris Maxwell has come in for Josh Mayebi and made the position his own for the last 10 games (8 BSP & 2 FAT). Chris has kept 4 clean sheets, that’s half of his 8 BSP appearances. Trinity exposed his weakness and hesitancy with crosses, although he is a brave lad with terrific reactions. His inability to be anything more than a bench-warmer at Fleetwood is very much the Dragons’ gain.
