LEIGHTON MCINTOSH and Bobby Grant were on target as Wrexham beat Telford United 2-0 at The New Bucks Head Stadium in their latest friendly.

Summer signing McIntosh's early strike proved to be the difference between the sides in the first half of Wrexham's fourth pre-season outing.

National League North outfit Telford were the better side after the break and missed a penalty before substitute Grant scored a late second for Bryan Hughes' men to seal victory.

The first chance of the game fell to Telford as Marcus Dinanga fired wide from inside the area.

Wrexham responded with McIntosh threading a pass through for Mark Harris whose shot was saved by keeper Andy Wycherley.

But the Reds went ahead in the 12th minute.

McIntosh latched onto JJ Hooper's superb through ball and he confidently fired past Wycherley to open his account for the club.

There was a good opportunity to double the Reds' lead when Hooper raced onto Harris' lay-off but he fired wide with just Wycherley to beat.

Telford had a goal disallowed when Ellis Deeney converted a corner after Dibble was adjudged to have been fouled but the Wrexham goalkeeper did well to punch away Brendon Daniels' dangerous cross with team-mates ready to pounce.

Shane Sutton headed over as the hosts continued their good spell but Wrexham came through unscathed and almost scored a second goal just before the break as Matty Sargent's drive was palmed away by Wycherley following Harris' backheel.

Telford came close to an equaliser at the start of the second half as Dinanga got ahead of Dibble and the ball reached Aaron Williams whose headed was cleared off the line by Jake Lawlor.

Wrexham countered and thought they had made it 2-0 but Hooper's goal from Luke Young's free-kick was ruled out for offside.

Telford continued to threaten and Theo Streete's penalty was brilliant saved by Dibble who then conceded a penalty as he brought down Dinanga in the area.

However, Dibble redeemed himself and guessed the right way to keep out Dinanga's spot kick.

Dibble was being kept busy and he denied Zak Lilly before stopping Adam Walker's effort from crossing the line.

Wrexham then saw Telford goalkeeper Corey Addai perform heroics by pulling off a fantastic double save to deny Grant and Jason Oswell.

But the Reds made it 2-0 in the 88th minute as a corner wasn't cleared and Shaun Pearson fed Grant who fired home.
