Wrexham 1-1 Sutton United: Grant penalty rescues Wrexham

Bobby Grant's late penalty rescued a point for struggling Wrexham against Sutton United at the Racecourse.

The hosts trailed from Harry Beautyman's 63rd-minute until three minutes from time when midfielder Craig Eastmond punched Shaun Pearson's shot over the bar.

Eastmond was sent off and Grant made no mistake from the spot.

Bryan Hughes' side rose a place to 19th while the visitors did likewise as they went to 17th.

After boos rang out from home fans at the final whistle, Wrexham boss Hughes said: "It's obviously not nice (to hear crowd reaction).

"I've got a relationship with the club, with the fans; being an ex-player, sometimes that goes out the window - I've seen that many times before with managers at their old clubs if things aren't going quite right or the way they want them to go. We haven't won in six games and I understand the frustrations."
