Wrexham 3-1 Guiseley

Ntumba Massanka
Ntumba Massanka scored a brilliant goal for Wrexham

Sub John Rooney heaped more National League relegation worries on Guiseley.

The visitors took a shock lead when Wales Under-21 striker Jake Cassidy headed home from a corner against the run of play, but the hosts hit back.

Wrexham equalised 20 minutes later in some style, when striker Ntumba Massanka scored a superb bicycle kick.

Substutute Rooney then scored the winner with virtually his first touch on his 200th career appearance, and added a third in injury time.

Guiseley are 22nd and Wrexham rise to 11th.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates told BBC Radio Wales Sport:

"I think we deserved three points, but it was not a great performance.

"We were not as free flowing as we wanted to be, but the character we showed was pleasing.

"The first goal comes from a great bit of skill and I thought this was the right game for him.

"We are pleased with the result."
