Wrexham slipped off the top of the National League table as they were held to a goalless draw by FC Halifax Town.

A game full of chances was only missing a goal, Dragons top-scorer Mike Fondop coming closest with a 40-yard shot which rattled off the crossbar.

Halifax thought they had scored the game's only goal after seven minutes but it was ruled out for a foul.

Wrexham travel to Braintree next whilst Halifax host second-place Leyton Orient at The Shay.

The Welsh side drop down to third, one place above the Shaymen.

Wrexham manager Sam Ricketts told BBC Sport Wales:

"I thought it was a really good game with two decent sides, you can see why they have had a good start to the season. They came here with a game plan to nullify us and we just couldn't manage to break it down.

"It didn't really fall for us in the final third but there were some really good bits in the game and I was pleased with our performance."
