Paul Rutherford's second goal of the season saw Wrexham beat Solihull Moors to maintain the pressure on leaders Leyton Orient.

Akil Wright twice went close for the hosts while Solihull's Danny Carter had an effort cleared off the line.

Rutherford broke the deadlock three minutes after the interval, netting from close range after Stuart Beavon flicked on James Jennings' cross.

Wrexham remain second, a point behind Orient, but with a game in hand.

Matt Stenson fired wide in stoppage time for Tim Flowers' Solihull, who drop to fifth.

Wrexham manager Graham Barrow said: "It was a real important win to back up a great performance the other day. It was a real professional job.

"It took a lot of concentration and energy to get the three points. Tim plays the way that suits them - they're big and strong and physical

"We dealt with everything. It shows that we can do a bit of everything."
