Wrexham 3-0 Boreham Wood

National League

Wrexham saw off Boreham Wood with some clinical finishing to continue their unbeaten start to the season.

The visitors dominated possession early but Wrexham took the lead when James Jennings picked out Jordan Maguire-Drew on the far post to head in.

Loanee Justin Shaibu was twice denied a goal on his Wood debut by Dragons goalkeeper Rob Lainton.

Rekeil Pyke's back-heel doubled Wrexham's lead and he then picked out Mike Fondop-Talom for a late third.

Wrexham manager Sam Ricketts told BBC Radio Wales: "I'm satisfied because we've won the game, but I'm not purring at our performance... the game was a tight game in which eventually our quality in the final third came through and ultimately scored us three goals.

"Our quality in the defensive third as well, some great saves, some great blocks, some great headers plus a bit of wayward shooting at times from Boreham Wood meant we kept a clean sheet.

"That's what the game came down to - we didn't play as well as I would have liked to and I know that we can do."
