    It's only a cup game.

    We only got 5k at home to Championship sides last season in the same competition.

    1k away on a Tuesday night in a 2nd round is fantastic and beyond expectation IMO

    With no trains and a potential 3 hour journey for any motorway closures and in poor form, it's more than fantastic.
    It will be sold out by the end of the week

    The fans turn up week in week out. Hughes not learning from mistakes is costing us, we are destined to repeat mistakes over and over. We beat Colchester but as always when we took the lead we went into our shell and invited pressure and it was only a world class save from Lewis which prevented the 2-2. Against Stockport we sat back and invited pressure when we went 1-0 up. The end of the game when we could and should of had two goals shows you we are threat but the way we are managed is safety first, 11 men in the box for corner, etc, etc and it's barely paid off. I was hoping we learnt our lesson last season when we effectively went to play for penalties v Carlisle but nothing I have seen so far suggests were are ever going to go out and put games to bed, we will take the lead and hang on for grim death and if plan A doesn't work there is no plan B.

    Looking at the body language of players last Saturday there isn't evidence players understand plan A.

    Good effort from the fans as always. Let’s see if the players and manager can match that and give us something to cheer.
    If they can’t get up for this game we might as well pack it in.

    Just a heads up, went to collect Mansfield tickets today and asked on the off chance if any Wrexham tickets were available. Got 3 tickets and apparently there are quite a few left too. Seems the ticket office and whoever releases statements on social media either don’t get on with each other or they don’t communicate!

    Looking like Oduor, Walker, Cook, Oyegoke, Kelly and Pattison could all be doubtful for Tuesday. Could be a fun night.

    We need a fitness coach pronto. If we have one he needs to review his practice.

    That's a lot of brave souls heading down to Wrexham after what happened last time we played a former manager :eek2::eek2::eek2:

    Hope everyone who bought a ticket gets a right show!

    Sounds like we'll be scraping a team together for this one. Walker, Oduor, Oyegoke and Kelly all doubts and likely not to be risked as well as Cook and Pattison who could barely walk at FT today.

    Does anyone know if this is actually sold out or not? I'm hearing mixed messages but there's no option to buy online so I'm assuming that either way they've been taken off sale?

    Was tempted by this but having got caught up in the joke that is the M62 right now a few weeks ago I can't be bothered with the potential hassle of getting home.

    Game day. I’ve got a feeling we’re getting battered. 4-0 to Wrexham.

    Thought ESPN+ might have it listed, but the 2 games they are showing in the US are Salford vs Leeds and Fulham vs Spurs.
