Maidenhead United will go in search of their fifth straight away win in the league this evening, when they travel to Wrexham AFC.
The Magpies have made a magnificent start to the season, especially on the road, and will be looking to back up Saturday’s storming 3-0 win at Sutton United.
The U’s were celebrating 100 years of playing matches at Gander Green Lane but the Magpies flew in to spoil the party with Shamir Fenelon, Jake Cassidy and Danny Whitehall all on target.
Speaking after Saturday’s win assistant boss Ryan Peters told Grace Scott: “We’ll try to do the same again. We’ll have a cool down on Monday (yesterday), make sure the boys’ legs are ok. We’ll travel to Wrexham, try to get there as soon as possible.
“And it will be the same again. We’ll stay in the game for as long as we can and hopefully the quality, like Shamir (Fenelon) has produced today, will shine through and hopefully once again we can pick some points up on the road.”
Tonight they face one of the pre-season favourites for promotion, but Wrexham haven’t had the start to the season they’d have wished for.
They go into tonight’s game without a win in four matches and their previous two have ended in defeat, leaving Bryan Hughes side 16th in the National League, 12 points behind leaders Woking.
Speaking this week Reds’ captain Shaun Pearson said he and his teammates can’t afford to feel sorry for themselves against the Magpies.
"It is fine margins," said Pearson. "The first goal on Saturday, when things are going for you that probably doesn't happen.
"You can't mope around because games come thick and fast, and we have got to be ready for it.
"We need to try and change that fortune around as soon as possible and the only way of doing that is rolling your sleeves up, working hard and grinding out a victory.
"We need to try and get a win and how we get it doesn't really matter.
“We just need to find a win from somewhere so if it is 1-0, 4-3, 5-0 or whatever tonight, I couldn't really care less as long as we win."
