Yeovil Town travel to Wrexham on Tuesday evening with the difficult challenge of facing the league leaders away from home.

In an evening where the Glovers could be relegated, Town will need to be at their best to get a victory from the fixture, but history is in Yeovil’s favour, being the last side to take three points from the Racecourse Ground.

The hosts are the most expensively assembled National League side in history, much thanks to the investment of actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. They currently top the table and are locked into a fierce title race with Notts County.

Mark Cooper’s thoughts

Speaking after Saturday’s draw with Solihull, which meant Town need three wins from three for any chance of staying up, Cooper said; “They’re frustrated by what’s happen. Like I said last week, it didn’t need to happen, but it has and now we need to view this as rock bottom and a chance to rebuild.”

Team news

Yeovil Town will be able to call upon Chiori Johnson once again after his suspension came to an end.

Will Buse began in goal on Saturday after Mark Cooper confirmed that Grant Smith has been “struggling since the York game,” he could be involved once again on Tuesday night.

The vast injury list isn’t expected to improve, with the likes of Morgan Williams, Jordan Stevens and Lawson D’Ath all unavailable.

A foot in the opposition camp

It’s hard to avoid the noise surrounding Wrexham; Hollywood investment, Premier League signings and a Disney Plus documentary have seen the North Wales side become a worldwide phenomenon.

On the pitch, they’ve been part of a fantastic title race against Notts County, with both sides eclipsing 100 points. To tip the odds in their favour, the Red Dragons most recently signed former England international Ben Foster, and his impact was quickly felt, with the shotstopper saving a last minute penalty in their clash against Notts County on Easter Monday.

The star power doesn’t stop there, with the likes of Ollie Palmer, Elliott Lee and Paul Mullin part of the attacking options, whilst there’s a familiar face in Ben Tozer, who is a regular starter in the centre of defence.

Have we met before?

Our last trip to the Racecourse was certainly a memorable one, goals from skipper Josh Staunton and Sonny Blu Lo-Everton mean the Glovers are the last side to have beaten Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground in a National League game.

Another memorable trip came in the 19/20 season as Rhys Murphy bagged a hat-trick in a barnstorming 3-3 draw in North Wales.


Tickets are now available from the hosts’ website.

Glovers fans will be situated in the Wrexham Lager Stand Lower, the same stand as our last visit when Yeovil were the 2-0 victors at the Racecourse Ground.
