Wrexham 4-1 Ebbsfleet United

Wrexham opened a three-point lead at the top of what was then the Blue Square Bet Premier on the 5th March 2013 with victory over strugglers Ebbsfleet.

The rout started after just 93 seconds as Dele Adebola scored his first goal since joining on loan from Rochdale.

Brett Ormerod soon doubled the lead before Kevin Thornton, who set up the second goal, scored from 18 yards.

Rob Ogleby added the fourth in first-half injury time, but relegation-threatened Ebbsfleet had the final say with Nathan Elder's late effort.

At the time this left Wrexham three points clear at the top of the table after Kidderminster had lost 2-0 at Gateshead.

The Reds were without defender Martin Riley and midfielder Jay Harris, but this was the perfect response after a draw with Alfreton on the previous Saturday.

Wrexham: Maxwell, S. Wright, Westwood, Artell, Ashton, Clarke, Keates (Little 68), Thornton 8, D. Wright (Morrell 52), Adebola (Ogleby 30), Ormerod. Subs not used: Cieslewicz, Hunt.

Ebbsfleet United: Edwards, Phipp, Walsh, Lorraine, Saville (Azeez 33), Gwillim, Carew, Barrett, Shitta (Bellamy 46), Envar-Marum (Alabi 66), Elder. Subs not used: Blake, Menz.
