Wrexham 3-0 Aldershot Town

Wes York

Wes York, James Gray and Dominic Vose's late penalty gave Wrexham a comfortable win over winless Aldershot at The Racecourse Ground.

York guided Connor Jennings' cross into the back of the net to take the lead.

Gray nodded in the second after Manny Smith's headed pass.

And Vose underlined Gary Mills' side's superiority from the spot after Luke Oliver's goalmouth foul, giving them a second win from three in the National League.

Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio Wales: "It was an unbelievable performance.

"And it was an improvement on Tuesday [beating Torquay 3-1] and we've got to go and improve on that on Tuesday, or emulate it certainly.

"I'm so pleased for everybody. With and without the ball I though we were excellent."

Smith on Wrexham v Aldershot

Aldershot Town boss Barry Smith told BBC Surrey: "Credit to Wrexham, I thought they were very good today and they were better than us.

"Players have got responsibilities and we know we have to mark and defend better. If they switch off for a split second, that's what causes a goal and that can't happen.

"They had a lot of possession without really doing much with it. But after they scored, you are always chasing the game and it becomes more open. They have good quality players and they deserved their win.
