How did Wrexham do Last Time Out?
Wrexham 3. v. 1. Aldershot Town on Saturday 29th November 2014.
Wrexham ended a run of nine league games without a win in emphatic fashion.
It had been Wrexham’s worst sequence of results since their relegation to the Conference Premier in 2008 but the Reds produced the goods against Aldershot – all after going a goal down.
Dan Holman picked up the ball 30 yards from goal and cracked an effort into the bottom corner to put Aldershot one up.
But the Dragons came right back at them and could have been level five minutes later when a great Mark Carrington ball was expertly controlled by Andy Bishop but his shot was saved.
Wes York could have done better when put through on 24 minutes but screwed it wide, before the equaliser did come two minutes later.
And it was all thanks to a great Neil Ashton pass that carved the Shots open and fed Carrington to slot home past Phil Smith.
Wrexham forced the issue after that, but Jaydon Gibbs’ cross-shot caught out everyone and hit the bar right before the half-time whistle.
But three minutes into the second period Wrexham were in front when an up-and-under from Joe Clarke fell into the path of Andy Bishop who expertly finished past Smith.
And the game was over as a contest on 71 minutes when sub Louis Moult took a great Carrington pass but was felled by Gibbs as he was about to pull the trigger, The striker up stepped up to make it 3-1 from the spot and end the game as a contest.
