Wrexham's Scott Quigley celebrates scoring the first of his two goals in his side's win at Hartlepool

Wrexham heaped more misery on Hartlepool as Scott Quigley scored twice on his debut to put the Welsh club's promotion push back on track.

Pools, who now have just one win in their last 11 National League outings, enjoyed plenty of possession but lacked a cutting edge at Victoria Park.

After a goalless first half, Quigley - on loan from Blackpool - scored two beauties, running 40 yards on both occasions before finishing well.

Hartlepool drop to 18th in the table.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates told BBC Radio Wales: "We had to be ruthless. We were here to get three points and we deserved them. We played it perfect.

"Quigley did well. He will get the plaudits, but I thought all round as a team we were outstanding. We defended well, they had a lot of ball, but they didn't hurt us. We were back to our best."
