Match report: Wrexham 2-0 King's Lynn Town

The Red Dragons make it five wins in a row in all competitions, courtesy of Davies and Mullin

1 March 2022

First-half strikes from Jordan Davies and Paul Mullin were enough to secure another comfortable victory at the Racecourse, as Wrexham ran out 2-0 winners against King's Lynn Town.

The victory means that the Red Dragons have made it five wins from five in all competitions, moving up to third in the Vanarama National League in the process.

It was a routine performance for Wrexham, who were in full control of the fixture from the opening stages, and never looked like relinquishing their lead.

Phil Parkinson named an unchanged 11 from the side that dominated Aldershot Town, with Mullin and Ollie Palmer leading the line for only the third time.

Davies opened the scoring, claiming his 13th goal of the season as he met a perfectly-weighted through ball from Luke Young and calmly placed his shot past the outstretched keeper.

Mullin doubled the Red Dragons' advantage just after the half-hour mark as he found himself unmarked inside the penalty area and he blasted his effort past Jones.

Palmer came close to scoring his sixth for the club as he climbed above the King’s Lynn defence but his header was comfortably saved by Paul Jones.

Ben Tozer came close to making it three just before the break, as he combined with Mullin in the penalty area, but his header landed on the roof of Jones’ net.

Max Cleworth had a chance to put Parkinson’s men further ahead just after the restart as his glanced header narrowly evaded the bottom corner.

Palmer came close again as this time his shot inside the penalty area was somehow tipped onto the crossbar by Jones.

The closest the visitors came in the first half was through Tyler Denton, as his effort momentarily scared Rob Lainton, but it went wide of his goal in the end.

They improved in the second period and came close to pulling a goal back, as Cleworth missed what looked like a routine header, but Malachi Linton failed to capitalise and curled his effort wide.

Ten minutes from time, both Jones and Mullin had two excellent chances to make it 3-0, but the former’s half-volley was saved excellently by Jones, and Mullin’s rebound was lashed into the side-netting.

Wrexham return to National League action next Tuesday at the Racecourse Ground with fourth-placed Boreham Wood the visitors.
