Martin Allen's Barnet stay top of the Conference despite their defeat

Rob Evans gave Wrexham a fourth away win of the season as he struck to topple Conference leaders Barnet.

Barnet dominated the opening period, but Luisma Villa blew an early opportunity and Wrexham goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann was equal to Curtis Weston's shot.

Bachmann also denied Lee Cook and Luisma lofted the rebound over.

Bachmann stopped John Akinde's header after the break and Evans netted the winner from 20 yards soon after.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales:

"I thought we were slow starting but we grew into the game and midway through the first half we started to ask one or two questions.

"That's the sort of resolve and character you have to show at difficult places like this.

"I'm delighted for Robbie Evans to get his first senior goal and the one that's made the difference."
