WREXHAM need to learn how to hold onto leads.

Bryan Hughes' side were looking to end a four game winless run against high-flying Maidenhead who were fourth in the table after making a much better start to the season than the Reds.

The pressure was building after Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Stockport and although it was an improved performance, a great chance to get a much needed win on the board went begging.

Maidenhead took take the lead through an unfortunate own goal but Wrexham equalised with Jason Oswell registering his first goal of the campaign just before the break.

Luke Young put Wrexham ahead in the second period but not for the first time this season, it was shortlived - three minutes on this occasion - as Maidenhead equalised.

Some good chances went begging as Wrexham pushed for the winner but it never came and that is now five game without a victory for the Reds who remain in the bottom half of the table.

The starting line-up showed three changes from the side was started the defeat against Stockport at the weekend.

James Jennings was fit again after missing two games through injury and replaced Jazzi Barnum-Bobb, meaning Mark Carrington switched full-back positions.

Midfielder Akil Wright was preferred to Devonte Redmond, who dropped to the substitutes bench, and winger Ben Tollitt came in for Mark Harris with the latter missing out after joining up with the Wales under 21 squad.

Wrexham created the first chance of the game in the fifth minute after Bobby Grant won a corner which was sent in by Luke Young and Wright headed wide.

Christian Dibble, at fault for the first goal against Stockport, showed a safe pair of hands to claim Maidenhead's first corner and played the ball out to Tollitt who ran at goal and just overhit a pass intended for Grant.

Wrexham enjoyed a good spell where they saw a lot of the ball and Wright dragged a low shot from outside the area wide of the target while Tollitt's run to the by-line ended with a cross that was just beyond Grant.

However, Maidenhead took a 22nd minute lead following an unfortunate own goal.

James Akintunde ran onto a long clearance, delivered into the area where the ball struck Young who had tracked back and beat Dibble.

It was almost 2-0 as Michael Chambers lost possession and Shamir Fenelon picked out Josh Smile who didn't get enough on his shot from inside the six yard box and Wrexham cleared the danger.

But Wrexham got back into the game by scoring an equaliser five minutes before the break.

Young whipped in a dangerous free-kick and Oswell's header found the back of the net.

The goal gave Wrexham a boost and they pressed for another, Young not far away with a high, curling free-kick that only just dropped wide with the last chance before the break.

Ryan Upward's effort saw comfortably saved by Dibble at the start of the second half but Wrexham had a better chance as Oswell fired over after Luke Summerfield returned a corner back into the area.

Dibble saved a tame Akintunde shot but Wrexham nearly went ahead as Young's free-kick was nodded down and a stretching Wright fired over from close range.

Jake Cassidy was denied by Dibble while Oswell headed wide from Young's corner at the other end.

Wrexham should have taken the lead as Wright again cleared the bar with the goal at his mercy, but the Reds went 2-1 up in the 63rd minute.

Young played a neat one-two with Tollitt and slotted past goalkeeper Taye Ashby-Hammond.

But, not for the first time this season, Wrexham couldn't hold onto their lead as the Magpies levelled three minutes later.

The Reds failed to clear a corner and Smile scored with a stunning strike from the edge of the area.

Wright had two chances in quick succession to restore Wrexham's advantage but the midfielder was thwarted by goalkeeper Taye Ashby-Hammond and smashed his follow-up against the crossbar.

Grant was unable to take an injury time chance and it finished all-square.
