Just as the wheels appear be, if not coming off, certainly wobbling, County’s next opponents are table toppers Wrexham. Will this fixure bring out the very best in the team and the manager? It will need to if we are to avoid a stuffing.

Now I have got over my depression at losing to Darlo, especially after my last super optimistic match preview, I still believe we can get something from this game. Here is why.

1. Piergianni is back. The young kid was missed in Tuesday’s goal-fest. He has served his one match suspension (for the harsh sending off at Cambridge) and I expect the back four to be stiffer.

2. I cannot see Didi trying to go all out attack. Let’s get back to those 1-1 draws away from home. We will surely play 4-5-1 for this game

3. Although Wrexham are top, it is their away record that is eye-popping with 6 wins, one draw and one defeat. At home they have been beaten twice (1-3 to Mansfield and 0-3 to York) and have scored an average 10 goals but conceded 7. Does this suggest they are better counter-attacking and teams that park the bus at the Racecourse Ground may just get something?

Clutching at straws? Maybe. Hands up all who would be happy with a 1-1 draw though?

May I be super-optimisitic again and say we could just nick it 0-1 ?*

Animo et fide County brothers and sisters.

  • Cannot see anything other than a good hiding to be hones. Not that our results on the pitch are the main concern right now.

  • Been talking to a Wrexham fan he told me the reason Wrexham have been in the BSP for so long is that in the early days in the BSP they tried to play “pretty football” to get results and it just “doesn’t work” they now appear to have a mixture or quality and experienced midfield players coupled with some bruisers.
    We seem to be going down the pretty football route with Didi and getting the same results as Wrexham got it their early years in this garbage league, Ray Mathias would have known that pretty football requires quality players and we dont have quality players

  • tough times at the moment folks, looking forward to my trip up in December to see you guys play (I’m Villa but my mate is County so I come to a game a season !)
