Chris Holroyd enjoyed September’s win at Tranmere Rovers and he hopes to make more memories in Saturday’s return fixture.

The striker joined Wrexham from Macclesfield Town but sustained a dislocated shoulder in the opening day defeat against his ex-club. After spending more than a month on the sidelines, Holroyd scored his first Reds goal in the 1-0 victory against Tranmere at Prenton Park on September 23.

Around 1,500 travelling supporters saw Wrexham play the majority of the game with 10 men following Sam Wedgbury’s early dismissal but Dean Keates’ side held on for victory following Holroyd’s second half strike. Wrexham host Tranmere this weekend, with a sell-out crowd expected at The Racecourse for the top of the table clash, and Holroyd is targeting another win to boost the Reds’ promotion challenge.

“It was one of my first games of the season at Tranmere and I really enjoyed it,” said Holroyd, the Reds’ 11-goal leading scorer. “After the disappointment of the start of the season it was a good day for me.

“It just showed what we are about as a team; going down to 10 men, the character of the team really showed. The away fans that day were fantastic, as they always are, so I am anticipating another great atmosphere on Saturday.

“We have had big crowds all year, I have always said that is one of the things that attracted me to join this football club, to play in front of that great support. I will just be happy with a win on Saturday.”
