It’s that time of the year when teams will want to enter the new year on a high note. Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney-owned Wrexham have been on a roll this season and the team will want to give their home fans a pre-New Year’s gift as they take on Swindon Town this Boxing Day.

This could be a big chance for the Red Dragons to reclaim their place amongst the top two teams in League Two, with their opponents struggling to find consistency. Phil Parkinson and his men will have been unbeaten in their last four league games and will be eager to take their unbeaten streak to five games.

Swindon Town vs Wrexham AFC: Prediction

With Wrexham running with all the momentum in their favor, it would be a mistake to bet against the side. However, with things not going Swindon’s way in their last three games, the side will be eager to prove themselves in front of their home fans. Despite his team’s struggles, Jake Young has been nothing short of brilliant this season.

The twenty-two-year-old is currently the top scorer in League Two with sixteen goals to his name. The striker could be an enormous threat to Wrexham’s defense, who have looked wobbly at times. With everything in consideration, the game has a high chance of ending in a draw, with the Red Dragons holding a slight edge over their opponents.

Swindon Town vs Wrexham AFC: Team Updates

Swindon might once again be without the services of Udoka Godwin-Malife, who missed the team’s last game owing to sickness. Frazer Blake-Tracy and Tyrese Shade are also set to remain on the sidelines for the home side, with the players out for an extended period owing to injury.

Wrexham, on the other hand, is laden with injuries this season. Goalkeeper Rob Lainton continues to be out with an injury with the likes of Bryce Hosannah, Ryan Barnett, Anthony Forde, Aaron Hayden, Jordan Tunnicliffe, and Steven Fletcher set to remain on the sidelines. Arthur Okonkwo made his return to Phil Parkinson’s team sheet in the last game and will probably replace Mark Howard between the sticks.

I'm a passionate Borussia Dortmund fan despite my side not lifting the league title in the last twelve years. I love to talk about tiny aspects of the game, discussing every little detail.
