Chorley 0-2 Wrexham

Devonte Redmond
Devonte Redmond's goal was his first in the National League since August

Wrexham moved out of the National League relegation zone after Devonte Redmond and Omari Patrick secured a vital win in a scrappy game at bottom side Chorley.

Keiran Kennedy had a header saved by Chorley's Matt Urwin while opposite number Rob Lainton denied Elliot Newby.

Redmond headed home Patrick's cross at the far post to give Wrexham the lead.

Patrick's curling shot sealed a second away league win of the season for Dean Keates' side.

Wrexham move up to 19th in the National League and are two points clear of the bottom four over completing a festive league double over Chorley, who remain at the foot of the table.

However, the Dragons were dealt a blow during the warm-up when captain Shaun Pearson suffered a back injury with Jake Lawlor taking his place in the side.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates: "It was far from the polished performance we would have liked but it was a good away performance, it's not an easy place to come.

"We needed a reaction after the disappointment at Maidenhead and we got that. We knew it was a case of making sure that we were organised and disciplined.

"We knew with the pace we had up top that we would create opportunities. It was all about getting some points today."
