Wrexham 1-0 Bromley

Luke Young

Luke Young's stunning 25-yard volley secured a vital victory for struggling Wrexham to knock Bromley off the top of the National League.

Bromley dominated the opening half hour with Reeco Hackett-Fairchild's effort drawing an excellent save from Rob Lainton.

Ryan Huddart made an equally fine save to deny Wrexham's Paul Rutherford before the break.

Huddart denied Bobby Grant and Rutherford before Young's winner.

Wrexham's first league win since Dean Keates returned see them move up a place to 21st but they remain in the relegation zone while Bromley drop down to second.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates said: "We've gone toe to toe with the top of the league and in my opinion we rightly got the three points deserved.

"Goal wise it was a good enough goal to win any game at any level.

"The basics - the endeavour, hard work and desire was there. They were outstanding on that. We want to get to a point where that's all there and we play great football."
