Wrexham score two late goals to snatch 3 points at Wealdstone - Wealdstone 1-2 Wrexham

Wrexham need to pick up as many wins as possible in the run-in for they don't slip out of those play-off spots and they face Wealdstone in a big game for both sides. Wealdstone sat 16th in a tight spot with only a few points seperating 20th and 14th and Wealdstone stuck in between bot. Wrexham started the day in 7th needing a win to keep Notts County at bay and to catch up on Solihull Moors.

Wrexham started off the better of the two sides but neither side looked like scoring. Wealdstone missed a few chances and so did Wrexham. The first half finished 0-0 at Grosvenor Vale with Phil Parkinson's men being frustrated by the Wealdstone defence. Wrexham were knocking on the door and a goal felt certain to come before full time for the visitors. Instead of this happening the opposite did when Wealdstone won a penalty Rhys Browne was taken down by the Wrexham goalkeeper. Rhys Browne scored the penalty giving the hosts a surprising lead. In the 87th minute the game looked lost and Wrexham stood outside of the play-offs then Jack Cook was sent off for Wealdstone after a second yellow. Less than two minutes later Wrexham equalised after Jordan Davies saw his free-kick hit the bar and he whacked the rebound in to break Wealdstone hearts and give Wrexham hope. Unbeleivably, Wrexham went on one last attack in the 95th minute and Reece Hall-Johnson scored the winner for Wrexham exploding the away end and keeping Wrexham in the play-off places.

Wealdstone still sit 16th but lose out on some big points in the long run. They remain on 31 points and still 10 away from relegation. Wrexham stay in 7th after Notts County and Solihull Moors wins so this win now could prove vital if they are to make play-offs. They are only now 3 points off 3rd and 3 ahead of Grimsby Town.
