Partybets post 9/4 against the draw, a price that could attract cash given that the pair shared the spoils in the final league game of the campaign but with the home match crucial in a two-leg contest, Wrexham could really do with a victory and the resilient Dragons, who ended the season strongly, could get it by a one-goal margin (10/3, Coral).
It’s set to be close, so Ladbrokes’ 5/1 for the hosts to prevail after a drawn first period subsequently catches the eye and with a tense, nervy start possible, the opener is even money (Stan James) to arrive after the 27th minute.
