Cheltenham Town 2-1 Wrexham

Cheltenham continued their unbeaten start to the season as they fought back to beat Wrexham.

James Gray put the visitors ahead off Javan Vidal's cross as they sought to extend a five-match winning run.

But Danny Parslow levelled as he hit the target from Harry Pell's headed pass.

Amari Morgan-Smith completed the comeback with a long-range shot that saw Cheltenham swap places with Wrexham to go fifth in the table.
