WREXHAM moved back into the automatic promotion places with an emphatic 6-0 win over Morecambe at the SToK Cae Ras.

Phil Parkinson’s side were superb as they bounced back from defeat at Accrington Stanley in front of the 10,244 in attendance.

The Reds raced out of the blocks and took the lead five minutes in after Joel Senior diverted Paul Mullin’s cross into his own net.

Two minutes later and Wrexham had their second as Mullin swept home Andy Cannon’s cross. Substitute Jacob Mendy added a third in brilliant fashion, cutting in from the right before smashing an effort into the roof of the net.

After a slower start to the second half Mullin got his second of the afternoon after 67 minutes before grabbing his hat-trick ten minutes later.

James Jones well struck effort into the top corner in stoppage time rounded off the afternoon.

It was a complete performance from the Reds, who travel to Harrogate Town on Tuesday night, here’s how the players rated:

Arthur Okonkwo – Was rarely troubled, composed in the air, put last week’s mistake behind him. 6

Aaron Hayden – Very solid down the right-hand side. 7

Ben Tozer – Led the defensive line well as usual, brought the ball out from the back and very solid throughout. 7

Tom O’Connor – Calm at the back, didn’t have a lot to do due to the one-sided nature of the game. Brilliant ball for Mullin’s third. 7

Anthony Forde – Injury woes continue for the right wing-back. Substituted just before the half hour mark with what looks like a hamstring issue. 6

George Evans – Superb performance in midfield, ran the show alongside Cannon in the middle of the park. 8

Andy Cannon – Two assists and inches away from giving the Reds the lead. Was the architect of everything Wrexham did well in the first half. 8

Elliot Lee – Continued his fine form, linked up well with McClean and Mullin down the left hand side. 8

James McClean – Busy down the left, showed his class with some brilliant balls going forward and was solid in defence. 7

Ollie Palmer – Perhaps the unsung hero of the Reds side, does a lot of the dirty work to allow those around him to shine. 7

Paul Mullin – Hat-trick hero. Took all three goals really well, getting back to his prolific best. 9

Jacob Mendy – Replaced Forde early in the first half and was a danger down the right hand side. Took his goal brilliantly. 7

James Jones – Didn’t do too much in the 20 minutes he was on the pitch, but took his goal well. 6

Sam Dalby – N/A

Jordan Davies – N/A

Will Boyle – N/A
