A tremendous win for the Reds as the blank the Bees for the first time this season and take our record to four wins out five on the road. 

Robbie Evans was the hero and who better than the Wrexham-born lad to grab the winner, with a cracker on 48 minutes. 

Evans and Elliott Durrell were both in the team as Jay Harris (injury) and Johnny Hunt miss out. 

From the start the Bees were buzzing and forced us ontot he back foot for the opening 15 or so minutes, with big John Akinde a constant threat in the Wrexham box. 

He was ably assisted by Jon Nurse through the middle and on their left five-goal winger Lee Cook was giving Ross White an awkward time. 

After Barnet’s early pressure we did start to come more intot he match and Elliott Durrell fizzed an effort across the face of the Bees’ goal. He also saw another effort disappear over Graham Stack in the home goal and into the night. 

Our first effort on target came from a great cross field ball by Durrell, but the offside flag was raised on the far as Wes York got his head on the ball and Stack had to catch under his cross bar. 

York was also involved with another two shots, when he cut in off the left flank, one going either side of the target. 

On 36 minutes, a Villa free kick from 35 yards flew over the bar, after Hudson had fouled Akinde. 

Three minutes before the break a left wing corner from Villa caused some problems as the ball bounced about, but it was eventually deflected away for a second flag kick. 

Ht 0-0 

The deciding goal came just three minutes into the second period as Robbie Evans hit his first strike for the Reds, a low effort that gave Stack no chance.
