ELLIOT LEE described Paul Mullin as the best striker he has played with and feels the duo have really hit it off as the season has progressed.

Leading scorer Mullin produced a man of the match performance in Monday's clash against National League title rivals Notts County, scoring his 44th goal of the campaign and having two assists in the 3-2 victory.

Playmaker Lee bagged the winning goal, scoring for the fourth game in a row after he was set up by Mullin as leaders Wrexham gained a huge advantage in the quest for automation promotion.

Brought in last summer from Luton Town, Lee has proved to be a brilliant signing and the 28-year-old, who has found the net 14 times in a Reds' shirt, says the connection he has with Mullin just gets better and better.

"I have played with a lot of good strikers but Mulls is probably the best one," said Lee, who began his career at West Ham and has also played for the likes of Oxford and Charlton.

"As the season has gone on, you have seen me and Mulls have got more and more of a connection.

"We are always looking for each other on the pitch, we are always playing one-twos.

"I'd imagine in my stats, I pass to Mulls the most and vice-versa.

"He is incredible to play with, he can do everything.

"He's an incredible striker, I have really enjoyed playing with him and long may it continue."

While Lee and Mullin earned the plaudits in front of goal, Ben Foster hit the headlines following his exploits at the other end of the pitch.

County were awarded a penalty deep into stoppage time but goalkeeper Foster made a brilliant save to keep out Cedwyn Scott's spot-kick.

Former Wrexham loanee Foster came out of retirement to return to The Racecourse after Rob Lainton was ruled out for the season and Lee says the ex-England international has made an impact on and off the pitch.

"Ben has been incredible since he's come in," said Lee. "He's fitted in so well with the lads.

"His energy, he is upbeat all the time.

"You seen from his save, it's what Ben can do; he's an incredible goalkeeper but he's also an incredible person.

"We are very lucky to have Ben in goal and he can pull off saves like that."
