WREXHAM passed a big test to reach the FA Cup second round but Phil Parkinson certainly won't be taking sixth tier opponents Yeovil Town lightly on Sunday.

The Reds progressed to this stage of the famous competition with a 2-1 win away at fellow-League Two high-fliers Mansfield Town.

Although on paper a home tie against Yeovil is an easier proposition, Parkinson knows the National League South leaders will be tricky opponents in the quest to secure a place in round three for the second season running.

"Everybody wants to get into that third round draw," said the Reds' boss, who led Wrexham to a famous 4-3 win at Championship outfit Coventry City last term before losing a hard-fought fourth round replay against Premier-League bound Sheffield United.

"It is always an exciting day in the football calendar.

"We had a really hard game away at Mansfield, when that draw came out I think everybody feared for our FA Cup run but we got through that really well.

"Obviously we wanted a home draw in the second round and we've got one.

"We are going to go all out to give our best to get through but this is a tough game.

"If we think it is going to be easy for one minute, it could be a tough afternoon but the intention is to be professional and get through to the next round."

While Wrexham clinched the National League title following a record-breaking 2022-23 campaign, Yeovil suffered relegation from the same division but the Glovers are looking to go straight back up and recently won 11 successive matches in all competitions before a dip in form.

"I have got utmost respect for Yeovil, they are having an outstanding season," added the Reds' boss.

"A couple of recent results haven't been as good but they had an incredible run before that.

"They are a very good standard National League team and we are quite familiar with a lot of their players because they are players we have come up against."
