WREXHAM drew 1-1 against Boreham Wood in their top of the table clash at Meadow Park.

It was second against third and it was the Wood took the lead on the half-hour mark.

But the second half belonged to Wrexham who levelled in the 52nd minute and produced a terrific performance.

Despite putting the home side under a lot of pressure, the Reds couldn't find a winner and the stalemate means they are three points behind leaders Notts County who won 3-0 against Maidstone on Friday night.

Phil Parkinson, who freshened things up and rested players for the two FA Cup meetings with Blyth Spartans, made three changes from the side that started the 3-2 fourth qualifying round replay win in midweek.

Aaron Hayden returned to the defence in place of Max Cleworth while Callum McFadzean was preferred to Liam McAlinden in the left wing-back role.

The other change was in midfield where Elliot Lee took over from Jordan Davies.

The game started at a frantic pace and Wrexham had the first sight of goal in the eighth minute, although the Reds didn't know much about it!

David Stephens' clearance ricocheted off Ollie Palmer and into the side-netting, although goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore was never in trouble.

Hayden's header from James Jones' cross went well wide while Lee ran at goal and went for goal rather than elect to pass to a team-mate and his shot was comfortably saved by Ashmore.

There was a chance for the Wood when a corner dropped to Danny Newton but his effort was blocked in the area by Palmer.

Jordan Tunnicliffe then made a superb tackle to deny Cameron Coxe and Hayden made a vital block to keep out Newton's follow-up.

The game swung from end to end with Lee's effort striking a Wood defender and Palmer unable to head home the rebound.

Back came the Wood who attacked down the right through Coxe and Tyrone Marsh with Ben Tozer making another brave block, but the home side took the lead in the 30th minute.

Dennon Lewis squared the ball to Newton who fired past Howard from the edge of the box.

Wrexham went off the boil after the goal, with the Wood remaining 1-0 up at the break, but the Reds made a lively start to the second half.

Palmer threaded a pass through to Paul Mullin who was forced wide and his shot was deflected over the bar for a corner which came to nothing.

But Wrexham equalised on 52 minutes.

Mullin did well on the right and he sent in low cross that was turned home by Hayden from close range.

The Wood then had a goal disallowed for offside but Wrexham continued to put the pressure on.

Jones only just cleared the bar from outside the area after being fed by McFadzean while George Broadbent was too high with a free-kick for the Wood.

Wrexham were getting into some good areas and substitute McAlinden fed Palmer who turned on the edge of the area and fired a shot that fell just wide.

There was then a brilliant bit of skill by Mullin who did well to take down Mark Howard's long clearance but his volley lacked power and was saved by Ashmore.

Neither side could find a winner and it finished all-square.
