Wrexham 3-1 FC Halifax Town

Javan Vidal
Javan Vidal's goal was just his second in professional football, his first coming in February 2009

Gary Mills' Wrexham made it five wins in-a-row as they outclassed struggling Halifax at the Racecourse.

Superb strikes by Javan Vidal and Dominic Vose put the Dragons in control until Jordan Burrows' header pegged them back before the interval.

Wes York's deflected long-range shot restored Wrexham's two-goal advantage in the 55th minute.

The Welsh club moved to second in the National League, while Halifax - without a win - stay second to bottom.

Wrexham are back in action at Cheltenham on Bank Holiday Monday while Halifax are at home to Barrow.

The match drew a crowd of 5,622 - the biggest for Wrexham this season.

Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Wales Sport: "Thank you to the fans again today, the crowds are getting bigger and bigger and they make a massive difference when they support us like that.

"We've got some good players but it's more than that, we are a team. You can see the players trust each other and it's clicking very nicely at the moment.

"You'll have done well to have seen a better goal than Dominic's [Vose] today."
