Darren Byfield rescued a point for Tamworth after Wrexham fought back from 1-0 down in the Conference Premier.

Jake Jones' left-footed shot put the hosts ahead only for visiting veteran Brett Ormerod to level before the break.

Wrexham's Bradley Reid put Andy Morrell's side ahead, but Byfield ensured deadlock at the final whistle.

The draw meant neither side's league position changed as Tamworth stayed 10th and Wrexham 14th.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wrexham boss Andy Morrell told BBC Radio Wales: "We have to settle for that with the back-four we had to put out today.

"We were putting it together off the cuff a little bit because that's all the players that we had.

"They're big, they're physical, they play to their strengths and at times we didn't deal with it very well.

"But to take a point and off we go back up the road I think I probably would have settled for that."
