Wrexham 2-1 York City

Gary Mills

Captain Sean Newton headed Wrexham to victory over visitors York City in the National League.

John Rooney's early penalty for the hosts was cancelled out by Richard Brodie before the break.

Newton rose to meet Rooney's corner to reclaim the lead midway through the second half.

It was the first time Wrexham manager Gary Mills had faced former club York, who sacked him three-and-a-half years ago.

Mills guided York to promotion into League Two and won the FA Trophy in 2012, but was dismissed 10 months later.

He told BBC Radio Wales: "The three points, yes, was massive, but I think the performance, I think we were on the front foot today.

"I thought we started excellently. We just lost it for 10 minutes when they equalised, lost our shape a little bit.

"I thought we responded well. I thought we were the better team and got what we deserved.

"When we lose we have to respond and we've done that."
