Torquay United 0-1 Wrexham 

This week we flashback to December 2015 and a 0-1 win at Plainmoor for Wrexham. 

It wasn't the best of games played out on an uncharacteristically bleak Saturday afternoon on the English Riviera.

The game hinged on one moment of excellence from Mark Carrington, so often the man that pops up with an important goal.

It was windy and Wrexham stuggled in the early parts of the match to get a foot-hold.

Both sides had little in the way of chances in a fairly even encounter until late on when the Dragons showed better quality.  

In the 78th minute a corner was delivered and not dealt with. Carrington, at full stretch managed to hook the ball in the net. 

Wrexham had another good chance cleared off the line in the closing moments - but the three points were already secure.
