FC Halifax Town 0-0 Wrexham

Alex Reid Wrexham
Alex Reid had one of Wrexham's best chances to score against Halifax

Wrexham drew their fifth game in six outings in an encounter with Halifax that only came to life after half-time.

Adam Morgan's rasper and Matty Kosylo both tested Wrexham goalkeeper Luke Coddington before the break.

A Chris Holroyd free-kick was the closest Wrexham came to scoring, before Alex Reid somehow blazed over with just Halifax keeper Sam Johnson to beat.

But Kosylo wasted an equally gilt-edged chance for the home side, while Ben Tomlinson's header was tipped over.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates told BBC Radio Wales:

"We're frustrated. We were comfortable for long periods of the game, decent areas but didn't make it count.

"If I'm entirely honest we're not getting decisions... James Jennings makes two tackles [fouls] and gets booked, [Tom] Denton seven before he gets booked.

"Reidy [Alex Reid] gets wiped out, he's knocked it past the centre-half and the possibility of going into a one-on-one and he [referee Marc Edwards] gives him a warning. Shaun Pearson first tackle, yellow card.

"I can reel off enough incidences over the games all this season that you think when will something go our way?

"There was a blatant handball and we didn't get it."
