FC Halifax Town 2-2 Wrexham

Louis Moult (L) last played in the football league for Northampton Town in 2012-13

Wrexham twice came from behind to earn a point at 10-man Halifax, who dropped a place to third in the table.

Danny Schofield's low shot gave the Shaymen an early lead before defender Mark Roberts was sent off for a foul on Wrexham's Lewis Moult after the break.

Moult headed the Dragons level before Danny Hattersley turned home Scott Boden's cross to restore Town's lead.

Moult equalised again late on, firing home from close range following Neil Ashton's cross.

Halifax are now a point behind second-placed Gateshead and four behind leaders Barnet, but two points ahead of Wrexham in eighth.
