...well on the train home (which is full of Welsh people moaning about the ref). It was an excellent defensive performance but we're still very poor going forward. There was little creativity in midfield today (none what-so-ever after Neilson went off) and their keeper barely had a save to make all match. Referee was good today, Wrexham's complaints are sour grapes - he got every decision spot on.

The back 4 were all excellent - with Magnay and Toto both rock solid. Disley contributed little after coming on for the injured Clay and Mackreth was very poor. His crossing was terrible all day and he gave the ball away countless times. I honestly think given his current form, Joe Colbeck offered the team more. Lenny took his penalty very well but was isolated up front and provided little threat from open play. In the first half he made a nuisance of himself and chased down their defenders. Unfortunately in the second half he stopped harassing the Wrexham players which let them back into the game a bit until their red card. Connor Jennings looked rubbish, very glad we didn't sign him. Town fans were excellent all match.

I don't mean to sound too negative because it was a very good result against tough opposition. Our work rate made them look very poor in the first half, but in the second their manager made changes and put us on the back foot a bit. We didn't really react and got a bit lucky when their player stamped on Disley and got himself sent off as that released the pressure on us. Hurst really needs to get us scoring more in order to capitalise on our solid defence.

Here's a video of the goal and subsequent celebrations -

What was Parslow like as the holding midfielder?

He did ok. Was quite good at hassling their players while they were on the ball, but he made a fair few wayward passes.  His inclusion worked well because we scored early and Wrexham set up in an attacking formation, but we definitely lacked creativity going forward with him playing there - he needed to move the ball on faster after winning it IMO.

Appreciate you giving us a quick run down on the game

Maybe not a stylish performance from the sounds of it but a good afternoon for us all the same. Safe trip back and have a good night. Think we'll all enjoy our Saturday more after this result!

Good report, thanks. Ties in with the commentary. Three much needed points and a good defensive performance.

Looking at the BBC stats again we had 63% possession but only 7 shots with 2 on target, exactly the same number as Wrexham.
