IT started off so well but ended with Wrexham suffering their heaviest league defeat of the season after losing 3-0 at Aldershot.

Dean Keates' side were on the front foot from the start and had chances to take the lead.

But the Shots took advantage of a goalkeeping error by Christian Dibble to go 1-0 up mid-way through the first half, and the Reds just went downhill after that.

Aldershot went 2-0 ahead at the start of the second half via a deflected shot and with Wrexham offering nothing at the other end, the home side grabbed a third goal.

Wrexham substitutes Dan Jarvis and Elliott Durrell both looked lively when they came on and came close to scoring but Wrexham were well beaten in the end.

Here's how the players rated:

CHRISTIAN DIBBLE: His mistake led to the first goal, made two vital saves before the break. 4

TYLER FRENCH: Has been a good signing but had an off-day, although he wasn't on his own. 4

FIACRE KELLEHER: Solid this season but has had better games as Wrexham struggled at the back. 4

MARK CARRINGTON: Made some important challenges and interceptions. 5

REECE HALL-JOHNSON: Was an early threat down the right wing but couldn’t keep it going. 5

JAMES HORSFIELD: Didn’t impose himself on the game. 4

JORDAN DAVIES: Tried to make things happen for Wrexham when others couldn’t. 5

JAMIE RECKORD: The wing-backs have been more effective this season. 4

LUKE YOUNG: Wrexham started brightly but faded. 4

DIOR ANGUS: Got into positions for best of the chances but the striker was unable to take them. 5

KWAME THOMAS: Presented with the first opportunity of the game and won his headers. 4


ELLIOTT DURRELL: Hit the crossbar with late shot. 5

DAN JARVIS: Offered something when he came on. 5

JORDAN PONTICELLI: Didn’t see the ball. 3
