Bees Win Out At The Racecourse

Wrexham came up short against a Barnet side who collected the points thanks a late strike from Jake Hyde. 

The forward’s goal on 78 minutes fired the Bees back into the play-off places. 

The home side enjoyed the better of possession in the opening period, but were unable to take their chances, which included a great save by keeper Nick Jupp to deny Joe Clarke. 

Andy Bishop twice went close in the first half and Danny Livesey scooped a set piece back into the danger zone, but it was then cleared. 

The second half was a much more tepid affair as Wrexham failed to worry the visitors and paid the price. 

Hyde was thwarted at the other end before he hit the target from close range to earn the Bees a fourth consecutive victory. 

The Dragons now head to Luton Town on Tuesday night with the Hatters being the ones who are breathing fire at the moment.
