WREXHAM'S unbeaten home record came to an end after losing 2-0 against Leyton Orient in the top of the table National League clash at The Racecourse.

The Reds, who went into the game sitting third in the table, gave a good account of themselves but two late goals sealed victory for leaders Orient.

The starting line-up showed three changes from the side that drew at Maidstone the previous weekend.

Mark Carrington, Brad Walker and Stuart Beavon were a recalled in place of James Jennings, Akil Wright and Mike Fondop, who were all named on the substitutes bench.

Orient had the first sight of goal in the seventh minute when Jobi McAnuff's free-kick was headed wide by Marvin Ekpiteta.

Wrexham responded immediately with their first chance of the game, Beavon meeting Kevin Roberts' teasing cross and keeper Dean Brill making a comfortable save.

McAnuff's free-kick drifted wide for the visitors as both sides went at each other but although Orient were looking more of a threat, Wrexham came close to an opener in the 23rd minute.

Rekeil Pyke raced onto a quickly taken Walker free-kick and left the Orient defence standing but Brill pulled off a superb save to deny the striker.

Wrexham got into some excellent positions and were only denied by resolute defending as the Reds began to gain the upper hand.

Another opportunity fell for Beavon after Pyke nodded down Kevin Roberts' free-kick after superb build-up play but defender Josh Coulson made a vital block just before the break.

Both sides cancelled each other out at the start of the second half with Wrexham forcing an opening on 61 minutes with Walker's header falling wide from Roberts' cross.

Wrexham came even closer when Luke Summerfield whipped in a corner and Shaun Pearson's header was somehow kept out by Brill.

Josh Koroma's effort from Myles Judd's cross was saved by Rob Lainton at the other end while Ricketts made a double change in the 78th minute with Jennings and Fondop replacing Paul Rutherford and Beavon.

Jennings was almost an instant hero with his header saved by Brill from Luke Young's centre before Jordan Maguire-Drew came on for Pyke in the final Reds change.

But Orient took the lead five minutes from time.

McAnuff's corner fell for Macauley Bonne and the in-form striker riffled the ball home.

It was a hammer blow for Wrexham who almost fell further behind as Koroma struck the post in the next Orient attack.

However, the O's made it 2-0 in the final minute.

Lainton charged out of his area to head the ball clear but sub James Brophy chipped the ball back into an empty netand Orient headed home with three points.
