Wrexham 2-0 Macclesfield Town

It took a few games in arriving, but finally we record a win for the new manager and move in a position of safety in the league on 54 points. 

Johnny Hunt struck again on 11 minutes, finishing off an effort from Joe Anyinsah. 

A cleansheet ensured the took all three points for only the third time since January. 

Jay Harris was though booked, which takes him to 10 for the season and earns him a two-match ban - missing Nuneaton and Chester! 

The Reds got that early lead following a foul on Harris by Paul Lewis, which resulted in a free kick. Dean Keates took the kick and Joe Anyinsah fired across goal allowing Johnny Hunt to slot the ball home right footed.
