Reds Go Three In A Row...

Wrexham claimed their third win on the bounce after they sealed a 2-0 win against bottom of the table Kidderminster. 

Kayden Jackson’s long awaited first half double was enough for the points in a comfortable win for Gary Mills’ men. 

The game started slow, with Wrexham having most of the ball. Then on 14 minutes Wrexham burst to life after a Jennings pass found Jackson on the edge of the Kidderminster area. 

A lucky break for Wrexham, as the ball squirmed under Kelvin Langmead’s foot, and that man Kayden Jackson was in waiting. 

He burst into the box and slammed home his first goal of the season, leaving Snedeker with no chance. 

Kidderrminster’s lonesome front man was exactly that for most of the first period, and Wrexham continued to pile on the pressure. 

Lee Fowler’s first real involvement came around the 20 minute mark, when he swung in a free kick from the left hand side. Jennings leapt, but couldn’t quite get enough on his glancing header to guide it goalwards. 

His second involvement was much more fruitful for Mills’ men. He popped up on the right hand corner of the Harriers box for a short corner with Mark Carrington. 

Fowler lofted a ball towards the far post, where Hudson and Jackson lay in waiting. The ball dropped and Jackson was adjudged to have got the final touch to bundle it passed Snedeker, from 4 yards. 

The half ended comfortably for Wrexham, with a scuffed effort by Ben Whitfield and a free kick cleared easily by Blaine Hudson being Kidderminster’s only real attacks. 

The second half started much like the first, with Wrexham knocking it around and Kidderminster inviting the pressure. 

Lee Fowler made way for Wes York early in the second half and Wrexham struggled to control the game as easily as they had in the first. But performances from Simon Heslop and Wrexham’s back five were enough. 

Kidderminster made two half time changes, and although the changes helped – as they had much better passing spells, they lacked penetration. 

Wrexham answered with shots from Jackson, Jennings and Heslop - but it was Kidderminster who ended the game the better of the two sides. 

Arthur Gnahoua forced Rhys Taylor into his first save of the half on 80 minutes, with a shot from 20 yards. That same man was unlucky not to score after he broke into the box, only to see his shot blocked by Hudson. 

Wrexham managed to clear the resulting corner after a horrible goalmouth scramble that left hearts in mouths, to earn a well-deserved trio of wins and clean sheets. Mills’ men will be happy with the points, but know there are much tougher tests ahead if they are to finish in the play offs come the end of the season.
