The Red Dragons are out for hunt once again this week. Wrexham will be hungry for some on-field action as the side’s game against Forest Green was postponed owing to a water-logged pitch. The side has had an impressive run so far in League Two and will eye that top spot on the table when they take on Colchester United. Phil Parkinson’s men are currently placed second on the points table with a game advantage over table-toppers Stockport.

Colchester United, on the other hand, has been going through one of their roughest campaigns this season. The side is batting relegation, with the team placed 22nd on the points table. A win over Wrexham will be an enormous boost for the side as they look to turn their fortunes.

This game could be a cagey affair battle between David and Goliath, as Wrexham is flying high this season. Meanwhile, Colchester is close to hitting rock bottom. Phil Parkinson and his men, following a slow start to their season, have been on top of their game despite batting injuries to multiple key players. While Colchester United would love nothing more than to upset Wrexham’s momentum, the Red Dragons are clearly the favorites to win the contest.

Wrexham goalkeeper Rob Lainton will be out for a while, with the keeper recently undergoing a knee operation. Fellow goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo will also be out of action with the player out for the last two games following a jaw injury. To add more to their worries, Wrexham cannot call on the services of Bryce Hosannah, Ryan Barnett, Anthony Forde, Eoghan O’Connell, Aaron Hayden, Jordan Tunnicliffe, and Steven Fletcher, with all players out owing to their respective injury issues.

Colchester, on the contrary, has a fit squad. Striker Samson Tovide will be the only name that won’t be making a trip to the Racecourse, with the player ruled out for three months following his ankle injury last weekend.

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.
