Fans couldn’t believe it as Wrexham lost their first match in a long time yesterday. This was their 3rd defeat of the season, but it came at the worst possible time for the Welsh club. The team is eying automatic promotion this season, and this defeat has made a significant dent in the hopes.

Wrexham lost yesterday 3-1 against FC Halifax Town. Their next matchup is against the only team that is giving a tough challenge to them. On Monday Notts County will face Wrexham AFC on Racecourse Ground, and coach Phil Parkinson has made his approach clear after yesterday’s blunder.

Monday’s matchup can create a significant gap between Wrexham and Notts County. Although they lost their first place on the table, both teams have the same points. Wrexham has 5 games left meanwhile, Notts only have 4 regular season matches left.

Wrexham will respond

Although a crushing defeat, fans still have high hopes for the club. Yesterday’s defeat only marks as a slight hurdle and made things more achievable for Wrexham’s arch-rival this season Notts County. However, as fate would have it, Wrexham will face Notts County on its home ground. The recent defeat will help the club analyze its mistakes and work on them for what can be a title and Promotion defining moment.

After the match, manager Phil Parkinson also talked about the importance of the upcoming matchup. He said, “We’ll look at the game closely on the way back tonight and analyze that and make sure we respond on Monday.” The statement is enough to signify how fragile the promotional race has been this season.

This fact has been criticized by fans as Both Wrexham and Notts County now have 100 points, which is a goliath of a stat. However, fans are losing their mind as one team with 100+ points will not be promoted.

The flashbacks from last year!

In May 2021, just months after the takeover, Wrexham had a chance to go for the play-in promotional spot. To the disbelief of fans, the team lost their do-or-die match, and that dream was over. Ryan Reynolds said in the last episode of ‘Welcome to Wrexham, “Our goal is to get the f**k out of this league. Like that’s it.” A dream that has again come under jeopardy.
