Wrexham 4-0 Alfreton Town

Andy Bishop
Andy Bishop joined Wrexham from Bury on a permanent deal in 2013

Wrexham ended a turbulent week following the departure of manager Kevin Wilkin with an impressive win over Alfreton in the Conference.

Connor Jennings had gone close in the opening minute before he put Wrexham ahead with a superb finish from Steve Tomassen's cross.

Jay Harris's crisp volley and Andy Bishop's first goal of 2015 gave the home side a 3-0 interval lead.

Bishop netted his 151st career goal to complete a comfortable victory.

Wrexham's victory brought an end to Alfreton's seven match unbeaten run and Nicky Law's side are six points above the relegation zone.

Wrexham caretaker manager Carl Darlington told BBC Radio Wales:

"It was pleasing to see the players move the ball around with a bit of freedom and they took chances when they had them.

"If I'm going to be critical we've created 10 to 12 chances in the game and haven't taken them.

"We've said to the players they've got to be more ruthless when we create chances."
