Wrexham back on top of table

Wrexham returned to the top of the National League with a 3-0 win at Gateshead last night.

With title rivals Notts County having their match at Solihull Moors postponed because of the cold weather, the Red Dragons took full advantage to move ahead at the summit.

Tom O’Connor bundled home Wrexham’s opener just past the hour mark – an advantage that was doubled six minutes later when Ollie Palmer pounced on a rebound.

And Paul Mullin added a third in stoppage time – Wrexham’s 70th league goal of the season in just 27 matches – before making way to allow Andy Cannon to come on for his league debut.

That puts Wrexham three points ahead of Notts County, with both sides having played the same number of games.

The Red Dragons next turn their attention to the FA Cup fourth round when they host Sheffield Unted on Sunday afternoon.
