WREXHAM made it back to back wins for the first time this season by beating Aldershot Town 1-0 at The Racecourse.

Four days after defeating Hartlepool United 1-0, the Reds clinched another narrow victory with midfielder Luke Young scoring the all important goal.

Reds boss Dean Keates named the same side that started Tuesday's win at Harlepool, although there was one change on the substitutes bench with Dan Jarvis replacing Reece Hall-Johnson.

Mike Fondop was absent for Aldershot after the former Wrexham striker was sent off in the midweek stalemate with Maidenhead - his second game for the club - and began a suspension.

Wrexham made a bright start and had three chances in the opening 10 minutes.

A cross from the right fell for Jordan Ponticelli who was thwarted by goalkeeper Brad James while Luke Young's deflected drive fell just wide.

Elliott Durrell, buoyed by his first goal since rejoining Wrexham in the summer when he netted at Hartlepool, tried his luck with a long range effort but James was equal to the task.

The Reds were on top and enjoying the majority of the possession and a James Horsfield cross was headed over by Kwame Thomas from close range.

The last chance of the first half also feel to Wrexham but Young's 25-yard free-kick was tipped over by James.

Aldershot created their first opportunity at the start of the second half but Rob Lainton denied Harrison Panayioutou following Mo Bettamer's flick-on.

Lainton was quickly called into action again and he pulled off an even better save to somehow keep out Bettamer's header following a corner.

Although Aldershot had the upper hand, Wrexham broke the deadlock in the 64th minute.

Jamie Reckord laid the ball off to Young whose well executed low drive from outside the area flew past James.

Bettamer fired just wide as Aldershot pressed for an equaliser while Wrexham almost scored when Durrell tried to catch James off his line but the goalkeeper scrambled back to tip the ball over the bar.

However, one goal was enough to seal three points.
