MORE than 8,200 supporters were at The Racecourse as Wrexham beat Woking 1-0 to continue the unbeaten start to the National League season.

The highest attendance in the fifth tier this season saw Phil Parkinson's side clinch victory thanks to a goal by midfielder Jordan Davies just before the break, although the Reds finished the game with 10 men after substitute David Jones was sent off in the second half.

It means Wrexham have two wins and three draws from the opening five games.

Parkinson made one change from the side that started the 2-2 draw at Southend the previous weekend.

Striker Paul Mullin, missing at Roots Hall with a slight knee injury, returned in place of Dior Angus who dropped to the substitutes bench.

Woking were denied an early sight of goal as Harry Lennon made a superb challenge in the area to prevent Tahvon Campbell from getting a shot away but Wrexham soon got into their stride.

Luke Young's fourth minute drive was blocked by the feet of goalkeeper Craig Ross who also made a comfortable save from Davies.

Jamie Reckord also fired over the bar following neat build-up play between James Jones and Tyler French while another good chance arrived as Aaron Hayden headed wide from Davies' corner.

The game went quiet as both teams cancelled each other out but Wrexham took a 40th minute lead.

Mullin raced onto Hayden's brilliant pass and crossed to the back post where Davies headed home.

Former Wrexham winger Jordan Maguire-Drew saw a header saved by Reds' keeper Rob Lainton just before the interval while Parkinson made his first change 10 minutes into the second half as David Jones replaced Davies.

A dangerous Mullin cross from the by-line just needed a touch from a team-mate and the striker continued to cause problems as he was brought down just outside the area but the free-kick came to nothing.

Woking responded with Joe McNerny's header comfortably saved by Lainton but Wrexham were reduced to 10 men in the 75th minute.

David Jones had only just been shown a second yellow card when he was sent off for a second bookable offence following a tackle.

Liam McAlinden replaced Mullin with five minutes to go and the midfielder raced clear in stoppage time but decided to lay-off to Jake Hyde when he could have gone for goal and the chance went begging.

Woking came even closer to an equaliser as Lainton pulled off a brilliant save to deny Maguire-Drew but Wrexham held on for three points.
