Jonathan Franks was denied a fourth goal in as many games as improving Hartlepool held high-flying Wrexham to a 0-0 draw at the Racecourse Ground.

The winger, who rejoined in the summer after two seasons with Ross County, hit the bar with a second-half effort after being set up by Devante Rodney.

The visitors had also come close when Rhys Oates saw his header bounce over the bar from Nicky Deverdics' cross.

Alex Reid came closest for Wrexham on the counter but Scott Loach saved well.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates told BBC Radio Wales:

"It was definitely a point earned, I think the lads put a shift in, worked hard and competed.

"That's the minimum you can ask for but we didn't really create too much if I'm entirely honest.

"It was difficult conditions and we're not really blessed with a big target man who is going to go up there and compete for everything."
