Wrexham dropped down to third in the National League after coming from behind to secure a point at Maidstone United.

Simon Walton's long range drive gave the home side the lead on 67 minutes

But Wrexham were level when Bradley Walker's speculative effort from 30 yards took a deflection and wrong-footed Maidstone keeper Grant Smith

Sam Ricketts' side lose top spot as rivals Salford City and Leyton Orient both won.

The Dragons extended their unbeaten run to 11 games while Maidstone are now unbeaten in three games and remain 18th.

Wrexham manager Sam Ricketts told BBC Sport Wales:

"Performance-wise I was really pleased, especially with how we played in the first half.

"You can't always guarantee results, but the better the performance the more results you should get.

"Hopefully coming from behind will give the players confidence. We got frantic after we conceded, but we are good side when we pass the ball and we got back to it."
