Louis Moult scored against his former club as Wrexham bounced back after defeat in midweek with victory over Nuneaton Town.

After losing 3-0 to Gateshead, Moult gave Wrexham the perfect start with a right footed finish.

Elliott Durrell could have doubled the lead soon after and he also went close early in the second half.

Andy Coughlin saved Ben Hutchinson's free-kick, but Nuneaton barely threatened.

Connor Jennings volleyed straight at keeper Reice Charles-Cook as Kevin Wilkin's side claimed a a second Conference win of the season.

Wilkin's former club Nuneaton remain without a win and still seeking their first goal of the season.

Wrexham goalscorer Moult was the last player to score for Nuneaton in the Conference, netting a hat-trick against Dartford in the final game of last season.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales:

"We're pleased to bounce back after Tuesday and I actually felt we probably, in large chunks, played better than we did today.

"The most important thing is we've got the three points and a clean sheet is a bonus.

"I'd be a little bit disappointed we haven't killed them off when the opportunity arose. Our class really shone through in the end."
