Wrexham 1-0 Maidstone United

Wrexham bounced back from defeat to Barrow with a vital 1-0 win over Maidstone United to all but relegate the visitors from the National League.

Ben Tollitt scored the vital goal in his last game with the Dragons who needed a win to keep alive their automatic promotion hopes.

The hosts made the breakthrough on 49 minutes as Tranmere loanee Tollitt found the bottom corner.

Wrexham remain third with Maidstone adrift in the relegation places.

Wrexham manager Bryan Hughes told BBC Sport Wales:

"I take the result over the performance, it could be the most important win of the season.

"At this crucial stage it is the results that matter and hopefully we can start another run now.

"It gives us a chance, it gives us something to build on. We are just concentrating on what we are doing.

"We will see what the teams around us do. But we will take 1-0 wins every week at this stage."
