Lincoln v Wrexham Betting Tips: 1, 2016-11-29

Non-League Tips

LINCOLN CITY v WREXHAM 

Tuesday 29th November 2016 – Kickoff: 1945hrs

Football – England – National League Betting Tips

Five wins from their last six league matches overall in the National League has lifted Lincoln City up into second place and just one point adrift of league leaders Forest Green Rovers heading into this midweek round of matches.

Recent wins over Boreham Wood, Chester, the aforementioned Forest Green Rovers, York City and Maidstone United make the home side favourites here when they take on Wrexham at Sincil Bank with a pretty strong home record of  6-3-2  25/9 behind them.

The Imps have registered seven clean sheets on home turf to date, while at the other end, striker Rhead (11 goals) has been the constant threat up front so far this season with support from midfielders Arnold (8 goals) and Anderson (4 goals).

Wrexham also registered an emphatic win over the current league leaders on the weekend as they ran out 3-1 winners at their Racecourse Ground as The Dragons have improved their fortunes in recent weeks in the National League, suffering just one defeat from their last seven matches overall.

That defeat was a surprising loss at home to lowly Braintree Town, while away from home they’ve struggled to put any kind of meaningful run of results together amidst their overall away record of  2-4-5  9/19.

It’s a similar story to previous seasons for Wrexham who are pretty consistent on home turf but can’t seem to click into gear on their travels and this is again the case as they’ve managed just one win from their last ten on the road.

I’ll therefore back the hosts Lincoln City to take all three points here to keep pressure on the league leaders.

Tranmere v Wrexham Betting Tips: 1, 2016-10-08

Non-League Tips

TRANMERE ROVERS v WREXHAM

Saturday 8th October 2016 – Kickoff: 1215hrs

Football – England – National League Betting Tips

Tranmere Rovers were handed an unexpected defeat to Gateshead during the week as the hosts went down 1-0 at Prenton Park but I’m willing to give the home side another go here in Saturday’s early kick-off in the non-league top flight when they take on Wrexham.

Tranmere have been pretty steady on home turf overall so far this season in the National League and whilst the midweek games can throw up some interesting results, the Saturday games should provide us with more stability.

Rovers hold an overall record of  5-0-2  10/5 and the bigger picture sees them having won six of their last eight at Prenton Park at this level although they did lose to Wrexham last time these two teams met back in April.

Visitors Wrexham also lost at home during the week in a 2-1 defeat to Lincoln City who should be there or thereabouts when the play-offs/automatic promotion spots are decided, and The Dragons now face a difficult trip up to Merseyside this Saturday to take on Tranmere Rovers.

Wrexham have won just once in their last five matches overall in the National League which was a 1-0 win away at mid-table Boreham Wood, but generally their away form has been lacking this season as their away record of  2-1-4  6/14 shows.

That win at Boreham Wood ended a run of five league matches without a win on their travels, and that miserable sequence included four defeats with losses incurred at Aldershot Town, Dagenham, Woking and Macclesfield Town.

Macclesfield v Wrexham Betting Tips: 1 AH-0.25, 2016-09-27

Non-League Tips

MACCLESFIELD TOWN v WREXHAM

Tuesday 27th September 2016 – Kickoff: 1945hrs

Football – England – National League Betting Tips

Macclesfield Town picked up another useful three points on Saturday when they beat Guiseley 2-1 away from home to hand them a fourth National League win from their last five matches overall.

They now return to their Moss Rose Ground for Tuesday night’s clash with Wrexham, and with this being the only fixture in the non-league top flight this evening, the hosts have a great chance of lifting themselves up as high as third place with a win here tonight.

Macclesfield’s overall home record stands at a slightly inconsistent  3-0-2  9/5 but all three of their home wins to date have been against teams in the lower half of the division with victories secured against Torquay United, Southport and Woking respectively.

Visitors Wrexham are a hard nut to crack at their Racecourse Ground and this has proven to be the case again this season so far as they’re still unbeaten on home soil in the National League with three wins and three draws in their six matches played so far.

However, The Dragons’ form away from home continues to let them down as they went down 2-0 away at Woking the weekend before last, and they currently hold an ordinary away record of  1-1-3  5/11 on their travels despite an opening away win at Guiseley at the start of the campaign.

Since that win (over rock-bottom Guiseley), Wrexham have slumped to three defeats from their last four away matches with losses at Aldershot, Dagenham & Redbridge and Woking (all to nil), while grabbing a point at mid-table Maidstone United in a 2-2 draw.

But I feel this game tonight may well be beyond them with Macclesfield on a high after their win on the weekend.

Wrexham v York City Betting Tips: 1 AH0, 2016-08-29

Non-League Tips

WREXHAM v YORK CITY

Monday 29th August 2016 – Kickoff: 1500hrs

Football – England – National League Betting Tips

Despite suffering a heavy 3-0 defeat away at Dagenham & Redbridge on the weekend, this afternoon’s hosts Wrexham won’t be too downhearted with this result as Dagenham will be one of the stronger outfits in the National League this season and may well be challenging for automatic promotion later in the campaign.

Wrexham return to their Racecourse ground when they take on York City as the hosts look to extend their unbeaten start to four league matches following good points earned against Dover Athletic and Eastleigh in 0-0 stalemates along with a 1-0 win over new-boys Solihull Moors.

The Dragons have lost just twice at home in their last 12 at The Racecourse and they’re a difficult side to get points off if you’re the visiting team. Watch out for strikers Harrad and White in this afternoon’s encounter as anytime goalscorers for the hosts.

Visitors York City recorded a heavy 4-1 home win over Woking at Bootham Crescent on Saturday to lift The Minstermen into 14th position in the National League, but grave concerns remain over their form away from home following back-to-back defeats at Gateshead 6-1 and Forest Green Rovers 2-1.

York are without an away win so far in this campaign as they could only muster a point in a 1-1 draw away at Maidstone United, so they’ll be tested in Wales this afternoon as early indications suggest they have a long way to go if they’re to bounce straight back up to League Two football this time around after being relegated at the end of last season.

It’s early in the season though (and midweek), so I’ll back the home side with the round ball here today as they certainly shouldn’t lose this one.

Grimsby v Wrexham Betting Tips: 1 AH-0.25, 2016-03-26

Non-League Tips

GRIMSBY TOWN v WREXHAM

Saturday 26th March 2016 – Kickoff: 1500hrs

Football – England – National League Betting Tips

Grimsby Town are on a decent run of four matches unbeaten in the National League as they prepare for the visit of Wrexham at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon in this crucial top half clash in the non-league top flight.

Third placed Grimsby will have to make do with a play-off place though as they find themselves a massive 14 points adrift of league leaders Cheltenham Town, so the next best option for Grimsby is to finish as high as possible for a favourable play-off tie.

Recent wins against Woking, second placed Forest Green Rovers and Southport have consolidated their play-off position, while their home form has been strong in Cleethorpes with overall stats of  12-5-2  42/14 and they’re unbeaten in their last nine at Blundell Park.

Visitors Wrexham have been in equally good form as they’ve now gone 9 matches without defeat in the National League having scored recent wins against Welling, Kidderminster, Boreham Wood and Chester – but again, these wins have been against bottom half opposition which should be taken into account.

Away from home, Wrexham have drawn three of their last four with stalemates at Eastleigh, Altrincham and Macclesfield Town and recorded a 2-0 win away at second from bottom outfit Welling amidst an overall record of  6-4-8  20/22.

But it’s The Dragons’ record away at top half opposition that perhaps provides the best insight as to their chances on the road at Grimsby today with a record of  1-3-4  6/9 with the one success being at Aldershot who now sit in 15th place.

Pick: Grimsby Town AH-0.25 @ 1.73 bet365

Wrexham v Guiseley Betting Tips: 1 AH-1, 2015-10-14

Non-League Tips

WREXHAM v GUISELEY

Wednesday 14th October 2015 – Kickoff: 1945hrs

Football – England – National League Betting Tips

Wrexham were handed a third defeat in four matches on Saturday when they were beaten 2-1 away at high-flying Dover Athletic which now makes it five games without a win for the Welsh outfit in the National League.

After a promising start to the new season, Wrexham have since slumped to take just two points from the last possible 15 on offer thanks to stalemates against Grimsby Town 0-0 and Tranmere Rovers 2-2 (both at their Racecourse Ground).

The Dragons will gain encouragement though that their home record is a solid-looking  5-2-1  17/8 and they welcome a Guiseley side who have won just once on the road so far this season. Incidentally, only Woking have also won 5 home matches of all the teams situated outside of the current play-off pack.

Visitors Guiseley currently sit in 18th place in the National League following a run of three straight defeats which has resulted in the West Yorkshire outfit sliding down the table towards the bottom four.

Recent losses to Lincoln City, Macclesfield Town and Forest Green Rovers (all to nil I might add) means that they’ll have their work cut out in tonight’s clash in Wales if they’re to get anything out of Wrexham despite the hosts’ recent slump in form.

Guiseley have registered just one win on their travels so far which was a 1-0 win at Braintree Town but scoring goals away from home has been a problem for the visitors amidst an overall away record of  1-4-2  4/7 and they’re the joint-lowest goalscorer away from home in the division.

I will therefore hand the pick to Wrexham who should also cover the -1 asian handicap too in perhaps a 2-0 win for the home side.

GRIMSBY TOWN v WREXHAM – Pick 1 AH0 – 21 December 2012

Non-League Tips

GRIMSBY TOWN v WREXHAM
Football – England – Blue Square Premier
Friday 21st December 2012 – Kickoff:  1945hrs

Friday night brings us a mouth-watering prospect at the top of the Blue Square Premier as second placed Grimsby Town take on third placed Wrexham at Blundell Park with just one point and one position separating them in the non-league elite.

Grimsby Town have put in some solid results with the odd defeat here and there but it’s just two defeats in their last nine which has maintained their challenge for promotion honours but it won’t be easy with the top five positions being filled by teams such as Newport County, Grimsby Town themselves, Wrexham, Forest Green Rovers and per-season promotion favourites Luton Town.

Nevertheless, it’s the team that can hold their nerve and the most consistent that takes the BSP title and moves up into the football league with the big-boys in what is arguably the hardest division to gain promotion from.

Grimsby’s home record stands at  7-1-3  23/8 and they possess the meanest defensive record at home in the division – The Mariners have also kept five clean sheets so far on home turf and will be hard to break down again tonight I dare say. In addition, Grimsby also have attacking options in the shape of Hannah (9 goals), Disley (4 goals), Pond (4 goals, 3 assists) and Colbeck (5 assists) and they could take advantage of Wrexhams recent indifferent performances in the BSP.

Onto the visitors then and Wrexham have been held up a couple of times recently in their push to challenge Welsh rivals Newport County for top position as they’ve lost to Hereford United and Kidderminster in recent weeks along with being held at home in a 1-1 draw with Gateshead.

The Dragons have inflicted crushing defeats on lower half clubs Braintree Town 5-1 and Nuneaton Town 6-1 but these results are expected of them if they consider themselves true promotion material. Wrexham’s away record stands at  5-3-2  18/10 and they lost their first away match in nine outings when they lost at Kidderminster a couple of weeks ago.

However, when you look at their defeats on the road (mixed in with all the wins and draws) you’ll notice that they tend to struggle against the top half teams on their travels which is a statistic worth noting here and gives Grimsby a better than average chance of taking the points here tonight.

Grimsby have been solid at home with a strong defensive unit behind them while Wrexham have flattered to deceive a little in recent weeks so I’ll back The Mariners (again with the round ball) as its a top of the table clash but don’t be surprised if Grimsby edge this one perhaps 1-0.

Pick: Grimsby Town AH0 @ 1.74 Pinnacle

WREXHAM v HYDE – Pick: 1 AH-1 – Tues 04 September 2012

Non-League Tips

Football – England – Blue Square Premier

Tuesday 4th September 2012 – Kickoff:  1945hrs

Home side Wrexham could move into second place if they take all three points against newly promoted Hyde United at the Racecourse ground on Tuesday night.

The Dragons started the new Blue Square Premier campaign with a 3-1 home win over another promoted side Woking, but then suffered a mini dip in form which saw them lose 0-2 at relegated League Two side Macclesfield Town before playing out draws against Ebbsfleet United and Grimsby Town, 1-1 and 0-0 respectively.

However, things look to be getting back on track with back-to-back wins at Tamworth 1-0 which was a good result, and then toppling their local rivals Newport County 2-0 in the Welsh derby at the weekend. Wrexham remain unbeaten at home too.

Wrexham should at least make the play-offs again this season and will no doubt be determined to go one step better this time around having finished in second place some 9 points clear of Mansfield Town and a ridiculous 15 points ahead of eventually promoted York City. By the way, did anyone else think that Gary Mills’ celebrations at the end of the play-off final were a little over the top and unnecessarily prolonged? It wasn’t as if he’d guided his side to World Cup final glory after all.

New signing striker Brett Ormerod will be expected to take up where Jake Speight left off as Speight has now left the club to Mansfield Town.

Promoted side Hyde United have found life hard going in the step up from Blue Square North and they’ve taken just 2 points from the possible first 18 on offer which were draws against Braintree Town and Barrow, 2-2 and 0-0 respectively.

Since then, Scott McNiven’s side have endured four straight defeats at the hands of Luton Town 1-2, Mansfield Town 0-1, Southport 0-2 and Forest Green Rovers 1-3 at the weekend. Their defensive frailties may well come to the surface again at strong Wrexham, and they’ve conceded 9 goals so far on their travels.

Former Southend United striker Scott Spencer who was prolific in Hyde’s promotion campaign from BSN (scoring 31 goals in total) has grabbed a couple so far, and journeyman forward Phil Jevons will also need to be watched closely.

This is a game that Wrexham should win comfortably, but the main question is by how many? I’ll play it safe as it’s a midweek fixture and back Wrexham to cover the -1 line here in what could be a 2-0 or 3-0 encounter.

LUTON v WREXHAM – Pick: 1 – 03 May 2012

Non-League Tips

Blue Square Premier Play-Off Semi Final 1st Leg

Thursday 3rd May 2012 – Kickoff:  1930hrs

They finished seventeen points adrift of their opponents tonight in the Blue Square Premier, but Luton Town have a chance to destroy Wrexham’s hopes of returning to the Football League when the two sides clash at Kenilworth Road on Thursday night.

Luton re-found their form in the run-in to this campaign posting four wins and two draws in their last six matches to secure that final play-off place and now, perhaps unfairly, they are on level ground with the Dragons who finished the regular season in second place some nine points clear of third placed Mansfield Town.

This won’t worry Luton one little bit though and they have first crack at Wrexham on home turf. Luton’s home record finished up at  15-4-4  48/15 and they have the best defensive record at home in the BSP, with only Grimsby Town (51), Fleetwood Town and Mansfield (both with 50 goals) scoring more than them at home.

The Hatters also put in some great performances in the latter stages of the season with wins over Ebbsfleet, Kidderminster and most notably, Fleetwood Town away from home 2-0. Talking of Fleetwood, Stuart is Luton’s leading scorer with 11 goals, along with Crow and Morgan-Smith (both with 9 goals) and midfielder Robbie Willmott (8 goals, 5 assists) while defender Jake Howells (5 goals, 9 assists) has chipped in with some important goals and assists.

Wrexham may be excused for feeling a little hard done by as they finished runners-up to Fleetwood Town in the BSP heads and shoulders above their play-off rivals, yet they find themselves in the same boat as everyone else. Oh well, that’s the way the play-offs were designed and I guess you can’t deny the excitement and the welcome extra revenue it generates each season.

But Wrexham need to put their disappointments behind them and make sure they at least reach the final – but first they must overcome a strong Luton outfit. The Dragons, by their standards, put in some ordinary results in the run-in with no wins in five matches (including draws against Cambridge, Fleetwood and Grimsby), ordinarily considered to be good results, but in the context of the situation, was a contributing factor to them missing out on automatic promotion – oh and the losses against Alfreton and Mansfield didn’t help either.

Wrexham’s away record finished at  14-5-4  37/16, and they comfortably had the tightest defensive record on the road by some margin. I have a feeling that they may well need this on Thursday night as Luton prepare to throw the kitchen sink in order to edge an advantage.

Speight, Morrell and Pogba (19, 10 and 10 goals respectively) are the main dangermen, and this trio have also contributed 20 assists between them, so there are no shortages of attacking spark.

Luton go into this match with more confidence I feel, particularly on the back of the Fleetwood result, and I fancy them to edge a slender lead to take with them to the Racecourse ground next week. I’ll back Luton Town with a 1-0 win here.

Main Pick:  Luton Town straight win @ 2.40 Ladbrokes

TAMWORTH v WREXHAM, Betting Pick 2, 14 January 2012

Non-League Tips

Blue Square Premier

Saturday 14th January 2012 – Kickoff:  1500hrs

Mid-table Tamworth take on second placed Wrexham at The Lamb Ground on Saturday afternoon as they seek their first win in five matches.

Tamworth have not enjoyed a good end to 2011 suffering three straight losses at the hands of Forest Green, Luton Town and perhaps most damagingly, Alfreton Town. This mini period saw them concede 11 goals whilst scoring just 4 themselves.

The Lambs’ home record stands at a credible  6-4-2  19/13, with recent wins over Hayes & Yeading and Braintree Town, but they could only manage a 2-2 draw with cash-strapped Kettering Town. I think it’s also worth noting that Tamworth lost 1-3 at home to Luton Town in mid-December and have historically struggled against top six teams (home and away).

Forward iyseden Christie (9 goals) heads their scoring charts and is backed up by Kieron St Aimie (7 goals) while midfielder Danny Thomas (2 goals, 3 assists) has been the main provider for the front two.

Wrexham travel to the midlands on the back of five successive league wins and will be aiming to make it six on the trot as they now sit in second place behind Fleetwood Town who have swept aside all who have dared challenge them recently.

The Dragons have been clinical lately themselves with wins over Darlington, Southport, Gateshead and Telford home and away over the Christmas period.

Their away record stands at an impressive  8-3-1   21/7, and are unbeaten in their last eight league matches on the road. The welsh outfit also beat Tamworth earlier in the season at the Racecourse ground 3-0.  In addition they also possess the best defence away from home, conceding just 7 goals and keeping three clean sheets in the process.

Leading scorer is Jake Speight (11 goals, 5 assists) along with Mathias Pogba (7 goals, 3 assists), Andrew Morrell (5 goals, 3 assists) and midfielder Adrian Cieslewicz (4 goals, 3 assists) while Curtis Obeng has chipped in with 4 assists.

Time to go all out again in this one and I’ll back Wrexham to do the business at Tamworth today in their bid to reclaim top spot – Wrexham to win 2-1.

Main Pick:  Wrexham straight win @ 1.96 Pinnacle

Value Pick:  Wrexham AH-1 @ 2.86 Pinnacle
