Braintree Town 1-2 Wrexham | March 2017

Wrexham claimed consecutive away wins for the first time during the 2016-17 season as they recovered from a disastrous start to beat Braintree Town 2-1 at Cressing Road.

Michael Cheek's first-minute goal put Braintree ahead before Ntumba Massanka equalised three minutes later after fine work by Izale McLeod.

There was no more scoring in the following 41 minutes as the teams reached the interval all-square. On-loan from then Premier League outfit Stoke City,  Ollie Shenton edged Wrexham ahead with his first goal for the club.

Wrexham remained 10th in the table while Braintree dropped to 18th position.
