Wrexham 1-1 Barnet

Wrexham and Barnet are on the brink of the play-off zone after a hard-fought draw at the Racecourse.

JJ Hooper's early opener drew a rapid response from Barnet as Dan Sparkes found the back of the net.

Wrexham and Barnet are level on nine points with seventh-placed Sutton United.

Goal difference means the hosts ended the day eighth with Barnet one place below them in the National League table.

Wrexham boss Bryan Hughes said: "I think that's an opportunity missed. Credit to Barnet, they came and frustrated us.

"We had to adapt it slightly at half time to try to get hold of the game, which we did eventually.

"But it's two points dropped. But teams are going to come here and stifle us and especially second half, Barnet settled for a point."
