Third season in a trot I’m away for Barrow at home, probably a good thing considering the results in the past two.
Don't know about Salford but we are like chalk and cheese from last season. In all honesty we were by far the worst team I saw last season (Grimsby were the best) and we have not been great shakes since we were relegated from league 1. At the moment we look like a team and are playing attractive passing football.One of the biggest mysteries this season seems to be why are so Salford so shit, but has anyone asked why aren't Crawley so shit? Weren't they supposed to be relegated already? When I looked at the fixtures I thought "well at least we have Crawley at home after Gillingham, Bradford and Wrexham" but defeats to two of the current top three aside they're not only getting results, they're also starting to hit the back of the net on the regs. Hopefully we've got Eisa and Rose back as while we struggle for goals with them, without them we may as well just shut up shop and go for a 0-0.
Far from it, most of us will be expecting a tough match.I imagine the Wrexham supporters and the neutrals expect a comfortable away win and to win at a canter. It will be fascinating to see if Phil Parkinson can deliver.
Wouldn't say clicking into place, everything always looks a bit better after a couple of wins though. We do have threats going forward, Barry's trickery and Olaofe's pace could cause your backline problems I reckon. But we do have issues, particularly at the back and we've been chopping and changing formations and line ups due to a lot of injuries. But we may have settled on a formation to get the best out of the players currently available the last two games.Far from it, most of us will be expecting a tough match.
2 impressive away wins on the bounce for County, things clicking into place right before they face us?
That was still under Rusk and was probably a false dawn. Challinor came in a month or so later and that was the catalyst. Our fans really should be more grateful to him to be honest, he's done a great job here.Two seasons ago both ourselves and Stockport (the pre season favourites) had started slowly and we went to their place at a similar stage to the season. We went one up in the first minute but Stockport came back into it and eventually won 2-1. Seemed to kick start their season and soon after they went onto a huge unbeaten run that ultimately ended up with them winning the league.
I hope that doesn't happen this time.

I remember thinking you were really poor that day, in fairness to yourselves you probably improved as much as us as that season went on but just started your revival a bit later which cost you. You have brought obvious quality in but looking at your side from that time, Mullin, Hayden, Tozer, Young there is still a solid spine that is similar. Same with us really with Hinchliffe, Croasdale, Collar, Madden etc.
It's L2 it's full of tinpotters. Law of averages, so shouldn't be surprised.
You will be pleasantly surprised in October where we play a combination of big boys promotion favourites including yourselves, tricky awkward tinpot sides and a local derby (not a rivalry of course) which we are guaranteed to not win even at fortress Meadow Lane. Very tough looking month.
It looks a hard month but we played very well on Friday. If the form book holds, ( my betting history says it doesn't ) we should win on Saturday and if we can come through October still in the top seven I'd be very happy.It does look a tougher month for you but at least you'll finally get a few more home games
