WREXHAM’S only home defeat came against Yeovil and Jordan Ponticelli wants to “put it right” when the teams meet again at Huish Park on Saturday.

Phil Parkinson’s men lost 2-0 at The Racecourse on November 30 with the Glovers scoring twice in the second half after Reds’ midfielder Liam McAlinden was controversially sent off in the 34th minute.

Ponticelli felt it was a result that Wrexham didn’t deserve and the striker wants to make amends in the reverse fixture.

“I thought we were the better side when they came here and we went down to 10 men so it will be a good game,” said Ponticelli.

“Hopefully we can go there and put it right what happened.

“It’s our only home defeat and I thought we didn’t deserve that so hopefully we can go and get three points.”

Wrexham return to National League action at Yeovil following a three-week break, with the Reds’ last game against Notts County on January 2 ending in a 3-1 defeat.

The Reds, who got a welcome run-out last weekend as they beat Folkestone Invicta 5-1 to reach the last 16 of the FA Trophy, remain in the promotion picture and Ponticelli wants to build on that win.

“We are halfway through our league season and it is good to be back playing again because it has been a while,” said Ponticelli.

“The Folkestone win and a few goals gives the team a bit of a boost, it doesn’t matter what game it is.

“Hopefully we can take that into the weekend.”

Parkinson is looking to strengthen his squad during the January transfer window to give the promotion challenge a boost.

The Reds boss is not short of attacking options anyway and it is a case of carry on regardless for Ponticelli who scored twice against Folkestone to take his tally for the season to five goals.

“It is football but I am here and when I get the chance, I will play as well as I can and try and score as many as I can,” said Ponticelli.

“The gaffer knows that.

“I will not only relish scoring the goals but I will also put the hard work in for the team, and I think I am showing that when I am playing.

“Regardless of the goals I am feeling fit and sharp.”

Ponticelli would like to have gone on and got a hat-trick but the frontman was nevertheless pleased with a brace and Wrexham progressing in the Trophy, where the reward is a home tie against Boreham Wood in Round Five.

“I wanted three but sometimes the other one just doesn’t go in,” said Ponticelli.

“I am grateful to get two goals and help the team to win which is the main thing.

“When I am playing I like to put myself about. If chances don’t come it is annoying but I try and do the other side as well.

“I got some chances against Folkestone and it was nice to be able to take them; the last few starts I have had, maybe not many chances have come but it is just working hard to make sure we get the win.”
