WREXHAM MATCH PACK

2 December 2014

All you need to know about tonight's opponents!

Bristol Rovers travel to north Wales to take on Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground.

Opposition: Tonight’s opponents Wrexham currently sit in 12th position in the Vanarama Conference Premier table with 33 points from their 23 games. The dragons however have been on an indifferent run of form having only picked up 1 win in their last 10 games.

Dangerman – Louis Moult: Moult has been in fine form this season scoring 10 goals in 21 appearances for the Dragons. Louis was a scholar with his hometown Potters and eventually went onto make his debut for the club playing several senior games. Opportunities were though hard to come across and he later spent time on loan with the likes of Bradford City, Mansfield Town and Nuneaton Town.

A permanent switch to Northampton Town followed and season with Nuneaton Town, before he followed manager Kevin Wilkin across country to the Racecourse in the summer of 2014.

Darrell’s View: “It is a very tough place to go, they had a great win at the weekend beating Aldershot who had also been on a good run.

“Wrexham are one of those teams that are capable of being in the top five come the end of the season.

“They’ve got some good players who can find the back of the net and their supporters have got high expectations.

“It is a non-league game, but theoretically it will feel like a league game because it will be two good teams going for it.

Team News: The only noticeable absentee is goalkeeper Will Puddy who injured his arm in the GFA Cup Quarter-Final at the Mem.

Last Meeting: These two sides last met back in September as Rovers ran out 1-0 winners at the Memorial Stadium thanks to a first half Andy Monkhouse goal.
