Barnet 1-2 Wrexham: Dragons clinch a play-off berth

A late goal by Wrexham substitute Jermaine McGlashan secured a 2-1 win over Barnet and guaranteed the Dragons a National League play-off spot.

Wrexham took the lead through Akil Wright's superb header at the start of the second half.

The hosts equalised through a diving header of Shaquile Coulthirst who took his season's goal tally up to 19.

As Barnet chased the winner, McGlashan got in behind the defence to slot home his first Wrexham goal.

Wrexham manager Bryan Hughes told BBC Sport Wales:

"We are just thinking about the next game but are pleased to mathematically secure the play-offs.

"Easter will be big with two games, there will be twists and turns.

"I don't want us to drop our standards now. The pressure of last season was a burden and that can come off the players now. We need to keep building on what we are doing."
