Wrexham 1-0 Barnet

Rob Evans
Rob Evans has been capped by Wales at Under-19 level

Rob Evans scored the only goal of the game as Wrexham completed a league double over Conference leaders Barnet in a pulsating game.

Evans, who scored the winner at Barnet in September, side-footed home following Louis Moult's pull back.

Barnet were reduced to 10 men when John Akinde was shown a second yellow card for diving.

Andy Coughlin made a string of saves as Wrexham secured back-to-back wins for the first time since September.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales: "Barnet, even with 10 men have pretty much thrown the kitchen sink at us and it's great that we've concentrated and stayed focused on our job.

"It's a great result for those lads in that changing room and everyone connected with Wrexham."
