Josh O'Keefe Following last Tuesdays controversial game (but not according to Wrexham fans) when we saw four of our players booked for trivial reasons but Wrexham players getting away with murder, and a late goal that gave Wrexham the points against the run of play, we now need to pick up the pieces and take it out on basement side Telford tomorrow.

Telford have arrived back in the Conference Premier after one season in the Conference North.  Sadly they're struggling more than they did in their relegation season and have only won the once so far with that coming in a thriller at home to Torquay Utd last Saturday.  That game saw Telford get the lions share of seven goals and Torquay have two players sent off.  On Tuesday evening they came back to earth with a bump when they lost at home to fellow strugglers Chester FC after going into an early lead but then relinquishing it to lose 2-1

We sent 'fans favourite' Josh O'Keefe (left) there on a months loan but after playing in a couple of games he picked up a thigh strain for the last two games and is now back at Aggborough.  Rumours are that he may be released to provide funds for a new loan signing for us with Telford his destination.

Telford are now managed by the former Southport manager Liam Watson but his time there has not gone too well so far.  He has shipped out four players with Chris Lever, Andy Owens, Wes Baynes and Josh Hancock going out on loan to Bradford PA, Barrow, Colwyn Bay and Witton respectively and more are expected to follow shortly.

They have injuries to Andy Todd but it's not known if they have any others.  With a squad as thin as theirs they can't really afford too many players out of the side.

We should have no injuries following the Wrexham game although most of them probably checked in for treatment the following morning.  Kyle Storer took an un-punished kick to the head while Marvin Johnson found himself hacked down time and again but our lads are tough and wave away such fripperies.

With Welling also coming up, at Aggborough on Wednesday, we are now facing two sides that most fans think we should beat.  I think we'll accomplish that against Telford but not too sure about Welling who haven't ben beaten since September 13th at Wrexham.
