Wrexham 1-0 Sutton United
Wrexham kept up the pressure on their promotion rivals by finding a late winner to break Sutton United's resistance and secure a vital 1-0 win.
Kieran Kennedy finally broke the deadlock with 12 minutes remaining.
Wrexham knew they needed to win to maintain their hopes of finishing at least in the top three of the National League and pressured the visitors before making the late breakthrough.
A crowd of over 5,000 were in attendance at the Racecourse Ground.
Sutton United, who won 3-0 in the reverse fixture, saw their remote play-off hopes ended.
Wrexham manager Bryan Hughes said:
"It was a solid performance through a tough game. We knew set pieces would be important today in both boxes and we defended them very well today.
"When we got a quality ball into the box, we kept things alive and then it was a brilliant finish from Kieran to win the game,"
