Wrexham v Harrogate: Predictions, Tips and Odds

Wins over Accrington and Morecambe this month have reignited Wrexham's push for promotion in League Two and they will be looking to make it three wins on the spin against Harrogate on Tuesday night.

The Red Dragons are doing their best to keep pace with Mansfield and Stockport at the top of League Two, whereas out-of-form visitors Harrogate are running out of time to make the play-offs.

The visitors were beaten 2-1 by Crawley on Saturday, meaning they are winless in their last six contests - a run which started with a 9-2 annihilation away to Mansfield in February.

Wrexham to win & both teams to score - 7/4

A run of three games without a win against MK Dons, Gillingham and Forest Green in February put Wrexham under serious pressure in the League Two promotion race but they have since made amends.

Phil Parkinson's men began the month with a 4-0 humbling of Accrington Stanley, having racked up 22 shots, 11 of which were on target, in that game.

And they kept their cool away to Morecambe last Saturday, going 1-0 down after four minutes as a result of Gerard Garner's striker but bouncing back with goals from James McClean, Paul Mullin and Steven Fletcher to win 3-1.

And they should make it three consecutive league wins when they return to the Racecourse Ground, where they have been at their best this term.

Wrexham have won 13 of their 17 league matches on their own patch, putting them top of the division's home table with two games in hand over MK Dons in second.

As for the visitors Harrogate, they have been heading in the opposite direction.

Their loss to Crawley at the weekend means they are down in 14th spot, six points off the play-off places.

They have failed to win any of their last six games and that streak featured their 9-2 drubbing by Mansfield and a 4-1 thrashing at home to Newport.

That does not bode well for their visit to Wales with Wrexham a top-heavy side, who should win this comfortably.

That said, Wrexham have not exactly been watertight at the back and Harrogate have scored in each of their last three matches, so back them to get on the scoresheet in defeat.

Over 3.5 goals - 5/4

Wrexham have one of the most varied and prolific attacks in League Two, having bundled in 67 goals in their 36 league matches this term.

They have gone into second gear since the start of March, netting seven goals against Accrington and Morecambe, and have plenty of goalscorers in their ranks, including Mullin, Fletcher and Ollie Palmer.

With that in mind, over 3.5 goals could also be a good pick at 5/4, having clicked in Wrexham's last two fixtures.

Harrogate leaked 16 goals in February and their troubled rearguard could contribute to a high-scoring clash.

Paul Mullin to score first - 3/1

Wrexham forward Mullin had to have a pain-killing injection last week and Parkinson will approach his team selection with caution but the striker should still be in line to start.

And with that in mind, he looks a great bet to score the first goal of the game at 3/1.

Mullin has been on fire for Wrexham this term, scoring 15 goals in 28 matches, laying on five assists and averaging a goal every 144 minutes.

He looks right at home in League Two and has already scored four goals in March, netting the first goal as part of a hat-trick against Accrington.

On penalty duty, he is a fine pick to find the net.

He can be backed at 5/6 to score anytime, while fellow Wrexham player Jack Marriot is 11/10 to get on the scoresheet - the same price as Fletcher - while Palmer is priced at 6/5.
