The Welsh side finished the league season in fourth place and now have to play a National League play-off ‘eliminator’ match to book a place in the semi-finals. Eastleigh finished a full 10 points behind tonight’s opponents and are the rank outsiders to win the play-offs. Wrexham were just a point off finishing third and two points off second spot. They finished the season with four wins from their last five matches and eight wins in their last nine at home, so they have to be the selection to win here.
Eastleigh won just two of their last seven National League matches and away fromhome they did’t win any of their last four. That will be a big concern for manager Ben Strevens but they have scored 14 goals in the last four away games so there is every chance this could be a high scoring game. Our main Wrexham vs Eastleigh prediction for tonight’s match is over 2.5 goals and the best odds for this are 11/10 with Ladbrokes.
Despite finishing the season in fourth place, remarkably, the Wrexham top goalscorer has only scored six times this season. That is Shaun Pearson, who is a defender. Eastleigh do have a prolific forward though in Paul McCallum and he’s bagged a remarkable 27 goals in the league already this season. That includes four in his last five so he’s the selection for an anytime goalscorer tip tonight, at the generous looking odds of 9/4 with Paddy Power.
