Match ends, Salford City 2, Wrexham 0.
Salford City 2-0 Wrexham
Salford City avenged their heavy Boxing Day defeat at Wrexham to end a run of four consecutive defeats.
Matt Green had been denied by Rob Lainton's fine save before the striker's scuffed volley gave his side the lead after 23 minutes.
Wrexham were on top early in the second half but Rory Gaffney's goal on the hour sealed Salford's win.
Salford moved up a place to third in the National League, one point behind second-placed Wrexham.
Wrexham manager Graham Barrow said: "You come away from home and don't expect to be faced with the opposition playing in their own half for 90% of the game.
"The disappointing thing for me is that we gave them everything they wanted really. We shouldn't have lost it.
"I can't fault the lads in terms of effort and trying to get back into the game."
