Braintree Town 3-0 Wrexham

Danny Livesey of Wrexham battles with Braintree's Kenny Davis

Sean Marks, Dan Holman and Alex Jakubiak scored as Braintree extended their unbeaten run to five games with victory against Wrexham.

Braintree took a deserved lead when Marks linked well with Holman before he rounded keeper Andy Coughlin to roll the ball into an empty net.

Wrexham made a bright start to the second half and Joe Anyinsah's fierce half volley was saved by Nick Hamann.

Holman doubled Braintree's lead before substitute Jakubiak added a third.

Jakubiak came off the bench to make his Braintree debut having joined on a month's loan from Watford.

Wrexham caretaker-manager Billy Barr told BBC Radio Wales:

"It's a tough night for everybody connected with Wrexham. I just didn't see that first half coming, that's not what we've been like.

"I couldn't come up with anything positive at half time, I tried to rattle a few cages. We came out with a little bit more intent but still not enough.

"I'm lost for words in a way - it's hit me and it's horrible. The feeling I've got in my stomach at the moment - it's just sick.

"I'll hopefully try and get a few players in [on loan] ... because it looks as though we might need to."
