WREXHAM had to dig deep to secure a first home win but Phil Parkinson was just pleased to pick up three points and continue the unbeaten start to the season.

The Reds extended the unbeaten run to five games by beating Woking 1-0 at The Racecourse courtesy of midfielder Jordan Davies' 40th minute goal.

It was a deserved lead following a good first half performance, but Davies was forced off with a calf injury early in the second period and his replacement, David Jones, was sent off in the 75th minute for a second bookable offence.

Woking finished the game strongly but Wrexham held on to register victory having drawn the previous two games at home to Notts County and away at Southend.

"I am pleased to get the three points but there was a little bit of tension in the air," said Parkinson.

"Possibly because we hadn't got over the line against Notts County and drawn last week; everybody knew we really needed a win.

"I thought first half hour we were good, we played some great football, had some good chances and didn't take them.

"When we have those periods like against Notts County, we have got to be more clinical and we got the goal.

"Second half there was a bit of disruption with an injury and the sending off changed the dynamics of the game, and we had to dig deep.

"Sometimes as a team you have got to do that.

"You have got to win all types of football games to be successful as a team and first half, there was some excellent play from us.

"Second half was disrupted and we weren't as fluent in possession but you have got to dig deep and show all kinds of qualities to win games of football, and a clean sheet for the boys is great."

Davies headed home his first goal of the season from returning striker Paul Mullin's cross and Parkinson hopes his injury is not serious.

"Paul is a player who can create for other players and he did it today, and I was delighted for Jordan making a good run in the box and getting his goal," said Parkinson.

"It is just frustrating that it looks like he has picked up an injury but we will assess that and hopefully it's not too serious."

Goalkeeper Rob Lainton pulled off a fantastic save from ex-Wrexham winger Jordan Maguire-Drew in stoppage time immediately before Woking had strong claims for a penalty.

Parkinson was pleased to see out the game but felt his side could have life easier for themselves.

"Woking threw the subs on, got the ball in the box and were very direct towards the end and we had to deal with it," said Parkinson.

"We had to rely on our keeper producing one moment on quality which we know he has got in his locker so delighted to get the three points and remain unbeaten.

"Obviously we can always get better and even towards the closing stages, we could have showed a bit more savvy in killing the game off."
