Wrexham survived a late rally from 10-man Kidderminster to secure a third successive National League victory.

The visitors looked to be coasting after Manny Smith's far-post header and Sean Newton's top-corner free-kick gave them a deserved advantage.

Kidderminster lost Reece Styche to two yellow cards in three minutes for clashing with Smith, but Andre Wright's header gave them a glimmer of hope.

Wrexham held firm and Adam Smith's stoppage-time lob sealed the win.

Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio Wales:

"I had a nervous 10 minutes, I've got to be honest, because 2-0 is always dangerous. When we went two up we let it slip a little bit and we gave them a goal by not picking up at the back post.

"It was a nervous time then, so it was great to see that third goal go in. It's another three goals, and away from home as well.

"I thought it was an excellent performance and showed another side to our game - if we have to mix it, we've proved we can do that."
