PHIL PARKINSON wanted Wrexham to do their talking on the pitch in Tuesday's re-arranged game against Aldershot Town - and his players delivered.

The original fixture on October 2 was abandoned after 52 minutes because of a waterlogged pitch at The Recreation Ground.

Wrexham were in control and leading 2-0 when the game was halted, with Parkinson stating afterwards that he felt more could have been done by Shots groundstaff to clear standing water off the playing surface and give the game a chance of continuing.

The Reds made the trip back to Hampshire for the rematch on Tuesday and once again rose to the occasion, registering a 5-0 win as Parkinson got what he asked for.

"It was important we did our talking on the pitch and we stressed that to the lads," said Parkinson.

"Obviously we were hugely frustrated the last time we came down here but it was about being calm, cool and calculated, and getting the job done.

"The lads were outstanding and I am so pleased for them as well."

Reece Hall-Johnson, making his first start since the opening day draw at Solihull Moors after recovering from a groin injury, scored the third goal.

"It was a brilliant result. When something like that happens (the first game being abandoned), it is good to come back and get the win," said the wing-back.

Nearly 250 supporters made the 425 mile round trip for the second time in six weeks and Parkinson applauded their efforts.

"I have got to mention the supporters who came down, they are the ones who have put their money in their pocket again and travelled down on a Tuesday night after the last game was abandoned," added the Reds' boss.

"Every one of them deserves a special mention."
