PHIL PARKINSON declared himself happy with another home tie in the FA Trophy.

Wrexham will face Boreham Wood at The Racecourse in the fifth round on Saturday February 12.

It is the third home tie in a row in this season's competition with the Reds beating lower level sides Gloucester City (5-0) and Folkestone Invicta (5-1) on route to the last 16.

The Wood are challenging for promotion in the National League alongside Wrexham and Parkinson welcomed the draw.

"A lot of good teams have progressed and we are pleased to be at home," said Parkinson.

"You don't want one of those long trips away, we can't complain."

Parkinson named a strong side for the fourth round win against Folkestone on the back of fringe players getting a run-out in a midweek practice match at Burton.

With the Reds back in action at Yeovil this Saturday following a three-week break from the league, Parkinson was delighted so many players got a run-out across the two games and to bounce back from the Notts County defeat on January 2 by advancing in the Trophy.

"With the game against Burton at St George's Park, the aim of the week was to get as many players minutes as possible," said Parkinson.

"If players go two or three weeks without a game then they can become a bit rusty.

"I was pleased with the work-out, the physical performance and the physical data from the game was good and some of the football and goals we scored was good to see."

Parkinson added: "Winning breeds confidence and Saturday was the first game back since the Notts County game which we all know was a good performance.

"But it didn't go our way so it was important that we got back to winning ways.

"We did that and it takes us into the weekend full of confidence."

Defender Harry Lennon, suspended but also nursing a back problem, and leading scorer Paul Mullin, rested as he bids to overcome a niggling hamstring injury, didn't feature against Folkestone.

But Parkinson revealed: "They are making good progress which is great.

"Like I have mentioned many times, Mulls has played with a problem for a while so we decided to use this period to try and get him firing.

"He trained yesterday and we will just see how it goes the rest of the week, and the same with Harry."
