Wrexham 2-0 Aldershot Town

Wrexham returned to the top of the National League table after seeing off Aldershot Town at the Racecourse.

After a goalless opening period, the hosts broke the deadlock soon after the hour as Stuart Beavon headed home.

That goal sparked fury from the visitors, but there were no arguments after Jordan Maguire-Drew added the second.

Aldershot stayed a place above the relegation zone after a fifth defeat of the 2018-19 season.

Wrexham host Halifax on Tuesday, 4 September, one of four teams a point behind them at the top of the table.

Wrexham boss Sam Ricketts told BBC Radio Wales:

"I'm delighted to get back to winning ways. We had one defeat last week (1-0 at Solihull), which got an overreaction for one defeat in seven games.

"For the players, I'm delighted for them because they didn't deserve some of the criticism they got last week, which astounded me.

"You have to be pragmatic. You're not going to go through the season unbeaten and we bounced back this week with a really good victory."
