National League: Wrexham 2-3 Eastleigh

Ben Strevens scored a late winner for Eastleigh at Wrexham after the Welsh side had fought back from 2-0 down.

Jai Raison and Andy Drury scored first-half goals for the visitors.

Wes York gave the hosts hope before Sean Newton levelled, but Strevens ensured victory for interim manager Chris Todd.

Eastleigh rose a National League place to 10th at the end of a week in which Richard Hill quit as manager while Wrexham dropped two places to fifth.

Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio Wales: "The first 15-20 minutes typified what's been happening over the last few games, where we should be two up again before they've scored.

"We can't keep saying it - we've got to address it sooner rather than later and do something about it.

"With their experience, Eastleigh were slowing the game down to an extent, but [they were] clever with it.

"We changed the system at half-time, then one chance second-half and they've taken it."
