Competition: National League

Market: Wrexham win

Odds: 8/13 @ 888sport

Looking to widen their buffer at the top of the National League table this weekend, Wrexham will make the trip to a struggling York on Saturday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while York might have managed to make their National League return this season, they are in the midst of what has become a nightmare run of form. With some in their camp starting to look over their shoulder at the drop zone, interim boss Tim Ryan finds his temporary squad enduring an eight-match winless run across all formats. Tumbling their way down the fifth-tier table, it should also be noted that the Yorkshire-based outfit have collected just a single victory since back on October 8th. Last seen putting in another downbeat display as they were hit with a 1-0 loss away at Dorking, the Minstermen will know that they face a huge challenge this weekend. Likewise, it should also be noted, including back-to-back defeats against Wealdstone and Southend, York have landed just a sole win in front of their own supporters since the end of September.

As for the visitors, while York might be enduring an extended blip, the same cannot be said for a high-flying Wrexham. Last seen extending on their FA Cup adventure thanks to a routine 4-1 romp against Farnborough, the Dragons have their sights set on recapturing their Football League status this season. Only continuing on what has been a remarkable run of form, Phil Parkinson’s side are unbeaten in each of their previous 12 appearances. Making the trip to Yorkshire this weekend holding a one-point advantage over the chasing pack, the former Bolton boss will be calling on his side to lay down another marker on Saturday lunchtime. Claiming a 3-1 win when they last faced off against York back in 2017, a similar away victory for the leading promotion contenders can be found at generous odds here.
