John Goddard: Woking midfielder on Wrexham loss

"We've had a real go today and we went down to 10 men and threw everything at them.

"I felt that I was brought down by the defender and it's a sucker punch for us and I am sure the referee will look at it and be disappointed.

"We've got to re-group. We have a really tough FA Cup game next weekend which is really important to us. There are fine lines at this level and you sometimes need the rub of the green and you would be looking a a different story today.

"It's not quite happening for us at the minute for whatever reason and we need to do a little more as individuals and pull together."

Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio Wales: "That win was massive for us and one we're going to enjoy.

"It's been a long time coming. Early on you could probably see two teams that were nervous but it's three points for us going into a two week [league] break.

"We've taken four points from the last two games and that's better and we're still up there and not too far off the top."
