Aldershot Town 1-0 Wrexham

Aldershot leapfrogged Wrexham to move away from the relegation zone thanks to Harrison Panayiotou's late strike.

After a goalless first half Wrexham should have snatched the win late on for themselves but Bobby Grant shot wide from within the six-yard box.

And the miss proved a costly one as Panayiotou scored the winner for the Shots with less than a minute left.

Both sides remain just outside the relegation zone but Aldershot move up to 17th, Wrexham drop to 20th.

Wrexham manager Bryan Hughes told BBC Sport Wales:

"I am under pressure to win games, every manager across the country needs to win games.

"It is my job to keep believing in these players. They are down.

"It wasn't nice to concede at the end the way that we did. We should probably have won it.

"I have to try and lift spirits now. It is hard, but we have to keep going and keep believing."
