Eastleigh 0-2 Wrexham: Patrick double lifts Dragons

Wrexham picked up a welcome 2-0 victory over Eastleigh in Hampshire to move off the bottom of the National League.

Wrexham led on 16 minutes when Omari Patrick finished from close range after James Jennings' precise cross.

Patrick then calmly converted on 41 minutes after Bobby Grant's clever pass sent him clean through on goal.

Despite their fifth win of the season Wrexham are 21st and remain in the relegation zone, while Eastleigh slip to 14th on goal difference.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates told BBC Sport Wales:

"It was nice to have a quick turn-around on the back of what happened at the weekend (going bottom)."

"We said had to be like a ball, it dropped to rock bottom and we had to make sure we bounced straight back off it.

"It is still extremely tight down the bottom but this makes it a bit more pretty on the eye. But finally I think we have the result we deserved."
