PARKINSON | 'Humbled' By Support

Manager delighted with away support.

24 November 2021

“Humbled,” and “Proud,” were the emotions felt by Manager Phil Parkinson as his side picked up a crucial three points away at FC Halifax Town.

The victory means that it is three away wins on the bounce for Wrexham courtesy of two late goals by James Jones and Paul Mullin to cap off a superb comeback.

Speaking after the game, Phil said: “After a draw at home with a bit of a flat performance to come out and see over 1000 fans was absolutely brilliant.

“They stuck by us when we went a goal down and made a huge difference.

“I’m humbled by the support tonight, I really mean it, I want to thank every supporter who came down and supported us tonight.”

Halifax took the lead on the 67th minute through a composed finish from Jordan Slew against the run of play, and Parkinson explained he believes in the end the result went the right way.

“The lads showed great character tonight and it’s a great win because Halifax have such a good home record.

“It could have gone one or two ways, but it went the right way and we got back in the game in terrific fashion.

“We played like the home team when it was 0-0 and we deserved the three points.”

The game was ultimately decided in the 91st minute; thanks to a great move started Jordan Davies, who’s quick free kick found Jordan Ponticelli and his pass sent Mullin through on goal and slotted home to send the Red Dragons home with three points.

Paul Mullin’s goal was his 9th of the season and Phil Parkinson revealed he thought it was Mullin at his best.

“The quick free-kick showed our intent that we wanted to win the game and what a great finish it was from Paul Mullin.

“I thought he was back to his best tonight; he held the ball up well, ran the channels and got the crucial goal.

“I’m very proud of the performance today and let’s enjoy the feeling because the lads deserve it.”

Wrexham return to action at the Racecourse on Saturday against Bromley.
