Report | Wrexham AFC 4-0 Altrincham

The Red Dragons roar to three big points!

18 April 2022

Paul Mullin’s brace led the way in another clinical home performance as the Red Dragons roared past Altrincham to make it fifteen unbeaten in the National League, in front of over 10,000 supporters.

It was a dominant performance from Wrexham again, as they took the Robins defence apart with some clinical finishing to wrap up the contest before the break.

Jordan Davies got the Red Dragons off to a flyer as he volleyed home on the turn from a bouncing ball that fell into his path from a Ben Tozer throw.

Mullin doubled the lead in the 33rd minute as he rose the highest from Young’s corner and he headed home past Thompson.

Mullin got his second and Wrexham’s third after breaking into space just outside the penalty area before unleashing a thunderous strike which left Thomspon unmoved.

The lead soon become four as Hall-Johnson burst down the right-hand side before cutting back to Palmer, who curled his effort past the outstretched Thompson and into the net.

Phil Parkinson elected to name an unchanged side for the seventh game in a row as they aimed to make it fifteen unbeaten in the National League.

Wrexham took the lead in the opening minutes from a Ben Tozer throw for the 12th time this season, as Davies controlled the bouncing ball to volley past Thompson.

Mullin came close to doubling the lead as his low-driven effort from 25 yards forced Thompson into a terrific save diving to his right.

Moments later and Mullin did get his goal, as he jumped well from Young’s swept corner to head past Thomspon.

Five minutes later and Mullin got his second as he broke into space before sending his superb strike into the top corner leaving Thompson rooted to his goal-line.

Ollie Palmer managed to make it four and three goals in the space of seven minutes for Parkinson’s side, as he got on the end of Hall-Johnson’s cross and finished cooly.

Mullin came close to securing his first Wrexham hat-trick in the second half, as his leaping header went narrowly over the crossbar.

The visitors were starved of too many opportunities in the game, but Dan Mooney managed to pose questions of the Wrexham defence as his dipping shot was parried out for a corner by Dibble.

They came close again to getting a consolation goal as Colclough’s probing cross was fizzed across the six-yard box, but no yellow shirt could poke it home.
