WREXHAM are currently experiencing their biggest “slump” for almost three years.

Back-to-back league defeats as well as an FA Cup exit at Blackburn have come as a shock to the system for Phil Parkinson’s men.

It is the first time Wrexham have lost successive games in the league since April 2021 – when Dean Keates was still in charge before Parkinson was appointed that summer.

The Red Dragons have slipped out of the automatic promotion spots but the former Bantams history-maker is certainly not panicking.

“In any season you have runs when it doesn’t go your way and we’ve got to work to come out of this dip quickly and we will do,” said Parkinson.

“We haven’t had too many dips over the last few years like this where results haven’t gone for us, so we are not going to start criticising individuals or going too mad.

“We are just going to work together as a group to come through this little dip and come out the other side of it.

“As a group we have got to find solutions and we are going to do that.”

Defender Jordan Tunnicliffe is confident of a response against the Bantams.

He admitted: “To lose three on the bounce is not something we want to do as a changing room.

“We’ll go back to the drawing board. Ever since I’ve been at Wrexham, the lads have been used to winning football games.

“We’ve got to react well as a team. It’s a really competitive squad, so we’ll turn this around.”

Deadline-day signings Jack Marriott and Luke Bolton both came off the bench in last week’s 3-1 loss at Salford. They could earn a start for City’s visit tomorrow.

Meanwhile, former Bantam Bryce Hosannah has found a new club in the National League.

Hosannah, who played 11 games for City behind closed doors in 2020 on loan from Leeds, was released by Wrexham just before the transfer window finished after three-and-a-half years at the club.

He has now joined AFC Fylde on a short-term contract until the end of the season.
