National League: Guiseley 3-1 Wrexham

Guiseley took a huge stride towards National League safety with a win over Wrexham, which all but ended the Welsh side's play-off hopes.

The hosts raced into a 3-0 lead at half-time as Oli Johnson rifled in before Adam Boyes struck twice.

Sean Newton's second half close-range finish pulled a goal back for Wrexham.

Guiseley are up to 18th, five points clear of the relegation zone, while Gary Mills' Red Dragons are six points adrift of the top five.
