Match Preview | Wrexham (A)

14 March 2024

It’s Derby Day for Tranmere Rovers on Saturday 16th March (3pm kick off), with a trip to North Wales to take on Wrexham.

A sold out away following of over 1,100 SWA will head across the border, with the Club looking to maintain its unbeaten run at the STōK Cae Ras stretching back to 1988. 

Nigel Adkins’ side are unbeaten in their last three, most recently dispatching league leaders Mansfield Town 2-1 at Prenton Park in midweek. 

Wrexham are second in League Two and drew 0-0 with Harrogate Town at home on Tuesday night. 

   

Team news:    

Jake Leake remains Tranmere’s only long-term injury, but Nigel Adkins is hoping to have him back within the next fortnight. 

Tom Davies has missed Rovers’ last two games but trained on Thursday and will be assessed ahead of the weekend.

One to watch: Paul Mullin 

Rovers fans will be very familiar with Paul Mullin, with the forward having been part of the Club’s League Two Play-Off win in 2019.  

The 29-year-old left Prenton Park a year later to join Cambridge United, where he scored 32 goals in the 2020-21 season as the U’s won automatic promotion to League One. 

Mullin was signed by Wrexham and, after two prolific campaigns, helped the club return to the EFL. He has scored 15 goals in the league this season, including a recent hat-trick against Accrington Stanley. 

    

Manager: Phil Parkinson 

Wrexham moved to appoint former Sunderland boss Phil Parkinson in 2021. His side lost to Grimsby in the National League play-off semi-finals in 2021/22 and suffered defeat to Bromley in the final of the FA Trophy in the same season. 

Parkinson led Wrexham to promotion back to the EFL last term, as they came out on top in a memorable title race against fellow promoted side Notts County. 

Parkinson started his managerial career at Colchester United, where he spent three years before a short spell with Hull City. 

Longer spells with Charlton, Bradford and Bolton Wanderers followed before joining Sunderland in 2019 and then Wrexham two years later.
