Dover Athletic 2-1 Wrexham

Toby Ajala
Toby Ajola joined Dover Athletic in September 2015

Toby Ajala's first goal for Dover Athletic secured victory over Wrexham and a fifth successive win in the National League.

Ricky Miller's fourth goal of season gave Dover the lead with a header at the near post from Nicky Deverdics' free-kick.

Connor Jennings levelled from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Richard Orlu.

But Ajala side-footed Orlu's cross as Dover moved up to third in the table.

Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio Wales: "That was a game that could have gone either way.

"We had chances and again we've failed to put them away. But their second goal was too easy for me.

"We're not going to win football matches if we're going to concede goals like that."
