Richard Williams

Wrexham's six game unbeaten run came to an end as they were beaten 2-0 by Aldershot at The Racecourse.

The Reds last lost at Southport on New Year's Day but play-off chasing Aldershot, who came to north Wales unbeaten in seven matches, scored twice in the second half to maintain their promotion challenge.

There were few chances at either end in the first half but Wrexham came close to breaking the deadlock in the 36th minute.

Midfielder Russell Penn pulled the ball back for Paul Rutherford whose shot was brilliantly saved by goalkeeper Jake Cole.

Aldershot went onto take the lead in the 71st minute.

Nick Arnold crossed from the left and striker Scott Rendell headed past goalkeeper Chris Dunn.

Wrexham fell further behind on 81 minutes, Arnold's corner wasn't cleared and Jim Kellermann fired home.

Wrexham (4-4-2): Dunn; Lund (Barry 75), Riley, Tilt, Jennings; Carrington, Penn, Rutherford (Evans 75), Shenton (White 80); Massanka, McLeod. Subs not used: Smith, Harry.
