PHIL PARKINSON hailed his side's character against Halifax as Wrexham came from behind to register the most satisfying of his spell in charge at The Racecourse.

The Shaymen took the lead midway through the second half but James Jones equalised eighth minutes from time before top scorer Paul Mullin struck in stoppage time to secure a 2-1 victory.

Parkinson was determined to leave the Shay with three points and he praised his players never-say-die attitude after going 1-0 down.

"We almost played like the home team. When it was 0-0, we put Jake Hyde on because I felt we were in the ascendancy to go and win it and then we conceded.

"Yes, we could have gone one of two ways but we went the right way and we got back into the game in terrific fashion.

"The lads showed great character, they really did, and it is a great win because Halifax have got a very good home record and they are full of confidence.

"But we deserved the three points. Before the goal, I thought we were the better team.

"Certainly second half, we looked the most likely team to score and then one moment has cost us.

"I was so pleased on that touchline and feel the character of the team. I am very proud of the performance."

When asked if it was the most pleasing win since he was appointed manager before the start of Wrexham's 14th season in non-league, Parkinson responded: "I would say so because Halifax's home record is decent and obviously on the back of Saturday (0-0 at home to Wealdstone) and then going a goal down.

"Add all that up, it was a terrific night for us and there was a real buzz in that dressing room, and rightly so.

"Now we have got to dust ourselves down and not get carried away.

"We have got back to back home games coming up."
