Connor Jennings and Wes York each struck twice as Wrexham beat Barrow to climb to sixth in the National League.

Jennings and York established Wrexham's superiority before David Symington gave the visitors brief hope.

York added the hosts' third before Jennings finished off Wrexham's second successive triumph.

Barrow remain 15th in the table after a fourth defeat of the season as Wrexham rose three places to lie one spot outside the play-offs.

Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio Wales: "I've missed going to thump the air in front of fans. It felt good, but we've taken seven [points] from the last nine - don't forget that, it's not just about today.

"We had the slip up last week, which might have taken the icing off that a little bit.

"I thought they were decent, Barrow. They started the game really well.

"We had to show a lot of desire to stick with that, but in the end I thought we deserved it."
