Wrexham beat Solihull Moors 1-0 at Damson Park to secure just their third away win of the season.
Dean Keates' side took the lead in the seventh minute.
Paul Rutherford's cross was handled in the area and Anthony Barry, back in the side because James Jennings was missing with a back injury, converted the resulting penalty.
It was almost 2-0 when Izale McLeod struck the crossbar with a free-kick from just outside the area before the interval.
Barry fired into the sidenetting at the start of the second half before Solihull enjoyed a good spell, Chris Dunn making a smart save to deny Harry White and Jack Byrne's shot cleared off the line.
But the hosts were left with 10 men when Byrne was shown a straight red following an altercation in the area after Dunn took a catch.
Solihull made a fight of it despite being down to 10 men while Ntumba Massanka almost scored a second goal for Wrexham in added time but he brought a superb save out of keeper Nathan Baxter.
Wrexham (4-4-2): Dunn; Lund, Riley, Tilt, Carrington; Barry, (Smith 83), Penn, Rutherford (Evans 70), Shenton; Massanka, McLeod (White 70). Subs not used: Marx, Harry.
