Wrexham 3-0 Braintree Town

Wrexham extended their unbeaten run at the Racecourse Ground to 11 matches with a 3-0 victory against Braintree.

Louis Moult took his tally for the season to 22 goals with a second-half double.

The striker tapped the ball home after Andy Bishop's long throw-in was not cleared, then headed in a Joe Clarke cross with 12 minutes remaining.

Bishop nodded in Jay Harris' cross in time added on at the end of the match to seal victory for the Dragons.

Wrexham have been conducting interviews this week for their vacant managerial post.
