WREXHAM suffered a second successive defeat against a team sitting at the bottom of the National League as the Reds lost 4-3 against Wealdstone.

It was a forgettable first ever meeting between the sides at The Grosvenor Vale Stadium as Wrexham produced a woeful performance.

Four goals in a frantic eight minute spell during the first half had Dean Keates' side on level terms but the Stones scored twice in the second half to seal victory.

Keates made two changes from the side that started Monday's 1-0 defeat against Maidenhead, who climbed off the basement after winning.

Paul Rutherford and Adi Yussuf replaced Jordan Davies and injured striker Jordan Ponticelli as the Reds switched to a 4-4-2 formation.

The first chance fell to Wealdstone but Michee Efete headed over while Wrexham responded through Yussuf's header from Jamie Reckord's cross which was saved by goalkeeper Harvey Isted.

However, Wealdstone broke the deadlock in the 15th minute, Dennon Lewis went on a run down the left and picked out Charlie Wakefield who converted.

But just 60 seconds later and Wrexham were back on level thanks to a bizarre own goal as Reckord's hopeful cross was put through his own net by Jerome Okimo.

Wrexham found themselves 2-1 ahead after 18 minutes when Yussuf slotted home with a defender unable to keep the ball out.

It was Wealdstone's turn to get in on the act as the Stones equalised four minutes later.

And it was the best goal of the lot as Jacob Mendy scored with a brilliant curling effort from outside the area that flew past Rob Lainton.

Yussuf had a shot blocked and Luke Young also had an effort parried by Isted but the former had a glorious chance to put the Reds back in the lead.

Rutherford laid the ball off to Yussuf who fired wide with only Isted to beat.

It was the last action of the game for Rutherford who went off injured just before the break, and he watched on as Wealdstone went 3-2 up 13 minutes into the second half.

Alex Dyer free-kick from the left evaded everyone in a packed area and went in off a post.

It got worse for Wrexham in the 63rd minute as the Stones scored a fourth goal.

Mendy sent in a corner and Efete's header found the back of the net.

Wrexham had a mountain to climb and Jay Harris had a goal ruled out for offside from Young's cross after winning an aerial challenge with Isted.

A succession of Reds' efforts were blocked in the area while Reece Hall-Johnson failed to hit the target as a good opportunity went begging.

Fiacre Kelleher also put a free header wide after meeting a Kwame Thomas flick-on.

Yussuf pulled a consolation goal back for Wrexham deep into added time but it was a case of too little, too late.
