It was a bad day at the office at Wrexham today who ran out 5-1 victors to leapfrog Salford into second in the Vanarama National League.

Dragons captain Shaun Pearson opened the scoring after three minutes with Akil Wright and Brad Walker also scoring before the break. Ben Tollitt came off the bench and scored in the 87th minute before Tom Walker was sent off for a second yellow card, and there was still time for Chris Holroyd to add a fifth before Adam Rooney’s consolation; his 200th career goal.

It’s three defeats in a row for Salford now after 20 games unbeaten, but Graham Alexander says that focus must now been on the next game.

“I’m sure it’s the same as everyone else connected with our club; players, supporters, everyone, it’s a very bad day at the office. 

“We didn’t start too good with the goal we conceded really early and it didn’t get much better after that so it’s really difficult now to analyse it without emotion because we’re obviously all extremely disappointed, but the players are in there hurting. 

“We feel as a group and as a squad we’ve let ourselves down today. We can’t hide away from getting beat like that, we’ve just got a lot of questions to answer and have to make sure that we do. We can’t just brush it away under the carpet, we have to confront it and face it and find the answers. 

“We have to go into Saturday’s game [against Barrow] in the best frame of mind we can to make sure we do our best to win the game, that’s all we can do, we have to take anything we can from here even if it’s a very harsh lesson but the most important thing now is the next game.”
