Tight tussle expected when Wrexham welcome Wood
Welsh outfit still strong at the back
BT Sport 1, 12.35pm Saturday
Wrexham and Boreham Wood have identical records from their first two league matches of the season, having both won one game 1-0 and played out a goalless draw, and a low-scoring affair could unfold in Wales.
New Wrexham boss Sam Ricketts is building around his side’s strong rearguard this term after the Dragons finished with the best defensive record in the National League last season.
They nullified last year’s top scorers Fylde last time out and can minimise Wood’s attacking threat.
The visitors have bolstered their defence with new additions Manny Perry, Femi Ilesanmi and Jamal Fyfield this summer and could also be tough to break down.
Under 1.5 goals
