PHIL PARKINSON was "humbled" by Wrexham's huge away support for a midweek fixture against Halifax Town and says supporters played their part as his side registered a last gasp 2-1 victory.

The Reds, held to a disappointing goalless home draw with Wealdstone on Saturday, were backed by more than 1,200 fans for Tuesday's National League clash at the Shay.

The high-flying Shaymen took the lead midway through the second half but Wrexham equalised eight minutes from time through James Jones' first goal for the club and leading scorer Paul Mullin grabbed a stoppage time winner.

Parkinson praised supporters for continuing to get behind his side when Halifax went ahead.

"First of all I am humbled by the support we had tonight," said Parkinson.

"After a draw at home and a bit of a flat performance, for us to come out here and see over a 1,000 fans.

"But not just that; when we conceded a goal, the way they stuck by the team.

"I thought they were absolutely brilliant for us, they really were.

"They made a huge difference and the lads have shown great character.

"But I have got to thank, and I really mean it, every single supporter who came and backed the team."

Players and staff celebrated in front of the Wrexham supporters following the final whistle and Parkinson was pleased Reds' fans were sent home happy from west Yorkshire.

"I am just so pleased to see the lads celebrating," added Parkinson, whose side are now up to eighth in the table.

"But I know how much is costs to support football teams home and away, and it is great that they are driving back to Wrexham ..... I bet those coaches are absolutely bouncing."
