A SEASON-HIGH home crowd of 10,039 saw Wrexham come from behind to beat Halifax Town 3-1.

Co-chairman Rob McElhenney was also in attendance at The Racecourse and saw Phil Parkinson's side trail at the break but second half goals from Ben Tozer, Jordan Davies and Aaron Haydan turned things around to keep the Reds second in the National League, three points behind Notts County.

Wrexham were poor and did not get going in the opening half-an-hour.

The Reds were second best and struggled to construct attacks due to misplaced passes with Halifax's pressing game working well.

There was an improvement in the final 15 minutes of the opening period when Wrexham got into some good areas and had chances but the Shaymen still led.

But Wrexham stuck to their task and were the better side throughout the second half.

Putting lots of pressure on 18th placed Halifax, the Reds were more of an attacking threat and created lots of chances, taking three of them to complete the comeback and start a run of four successive home games in league and cup with a win.

Parkinson named the same side that started the 1-1 draw with Boreham Wood on Saturday.

There was one change on the substitutes bench with Max Cleworth coming in for Tom O'Connor.

Halifax saw a lot of the ball in the early exchanges but after a scrappy start to the game, Wrexham won the first corner which was only cleared as far as James Jones whose volley was blocked by a defender.

The Shaymen went upfield and Kian Spence's low drive was comfortably saved by Mark Howard, but the visitors took the lead in the 13th minute.

Emmanuel Dieseruvwe was adjudged to have been pulled down in the area by Hayden and the striker dispatched the resulting penalty.

An acrobatic shot from Elliot Lee cleared the bar for Wrexham who came even closer when Tozer's throw-in fell to Ollie Palmer whose effort was saved on the line by keeper Sam Johnson.

Jones and Lee combined well to play the ball out to Anthony Forde who sent in a cross and Tylor Golden managed to clear the ball out for a corner before Paul Mullin could get a head on it.

Wrexham's best chance came of the half came when Forde sent in a cross to the back post where fellow wing-back Callum McFadzean's looping header struck the crossbar and was cleared.

It was much better from the Reds who almost capitalised on defender Festus Arthur's slip in the area as Palmer's shot was parried by Johnson and Lee's follow-up went wide.

Halifax remained ahead at the break with Wrexham going straight at the visitors when the action resumed.

Hayden's downward header was well wide from Luke Young's corner while a shot was heading wide following another flag-kick but it fell for Palmer who brought an unbelievable save out of Johnson.

However, Wrexham made it 1-1 after 65 minutes.

Forde's cross was only cleared as far as Tozer who found the top corner with a superb effort with the outside of the foot from the edge of the box which gave Johnson no chance.

Buoyed by the goal, the Reds continued to go at Halifax and Lee's low drive was parried by Johnson who made a brave block to prevent Hayden scoring with the follow-up.

Palmer was also denied by Johnson with Jones' shot turned behind by the goalkeeper who was having a superb game.

Substitute Sam Dalby fired wide but Wrexham took a 2-1 lead with seven minutes to go.

Palmer fed Jordan Davies in the area and the substitutes fired home with a rocket shot.

It got even better for Wrexham who scored a third goal in the 90th minute.

Young sent in a corner which was headed home by Hayden to secure victory.
