REPORT | Wrexham 1-0 Woking

Davies header claims three points to earn victory in front of 8,200 fans.

11 September 2021

Jordan Davies’ first half goal gave Wrexham their first home league win of the campaign in front of the highest crowd in the National League this season.

Parkinson’s side got themselves ahead five minutes before the break as Jordan Davies’ cushioned header nestled into the bottom corner after some great hold up play and vision by Paul Mullin. 

Despite being a goal to the good Wrexham had to finish the game strong as Dave Jones received his marching orders for a second bookable offence in a matter of moments 15 minutes from time. 

In a game of little chances for the visitors Jordan Maguire-Drew nearly levelled the tie in the dying moments, but Rob Lainton saved superbly diving to his left in added time. 

Captain Luke Young had the first opportunity of the game and should have put the reds ahead.  

Paul Mullin found himself in behind the Woking defence and his pull back to Young on the edge of the area was smartly saved by Ross. 

The reds had another opportunity to make their early possession count as some neat football between Tyler French and James Jones found Reckord unmarked inside the penalty area, but his scuffed effort rose over the bar. 

Mullin posed problems all afternoon for the Woking defence he nearly doubled the Wrexham lead, but his cross-come shot flashed across the face of goal. 

Before Maguire-Drew’s last ditch effort Woking never truly came close to troubling the goal of Lainton, and the closest they came was through a header from Joe McNerney which was comfortably held by the Wrexham stopper. 

Liam McAlinden replaced Mullin on the 85th minute and his cameo forced the pressure back onto Woking, and he nearly doubled the reds advantage. 

He made a surging run down the right-hand side and his shot was spilt by Ross and caused a goal mouth scramble which eventually came to an end as Marsden blew for a Woking free kick. 

Today’s victory sees us go 8th in the league as we remain unbeaten ahead of Tuesday’s away fixture against Grimsby Town.
