Players to have extra recovery as Dragons face two free Saturdays.

Byline: ROB GRIFFITHS

WREXHAM will be without a match on successive Saturdays in November following their exit from the FA Cup and Solihull Moors' progress to the first round proper.

Saturday's 1-0 loss away to AFC Fylde saw Wrexham fail to reach the first round of the FA Cup for the third season in succession, with Danny Rowe's first-half effort at Mill Farm proving to be the difference.

There had been hopes of bringing forward Wrexham's home game against Solihull from Tuesday, November 21 to the FA Cup weekend (November 4).

However, Moors' win over Ossett Town in Tuesday night's cup reply ended that possibility, with the midlanders now due to host Wycombe in the cup at Damson Park on November 4. With the following weekend already a free Saturday for Wrexham after their visit to local rivals Chester was rearranged for Wednesday, November 8 due to TV scheduling, Dean Keates' side miss two Saturdays on the bounce.

Keates said:"We did have an eye on Solihull but they have got through, so it will be a case of a little rest for the lads to recover.

"It will be a bit strange, but we will adapt to it and get our plans altered leading up to it."

While Keates is likely to get some recovery into his players, he said he and his staff will use the weekends off to scout as many games as possible.

"We'll do the usual thing and have the opportunity to get out and watch a few games," he added.
