Wrexham 4-1 AFC Telford
Blue Square Premier League
Following our defeat at Grimsby it was important that we got back to winning ways. The Cleethorpes debacle cast a dark shadow over the Stadium and there was a subdued and downbeat atmosphere prevalent on a rainy wet lunchtime.
The visitors are in some disarray at the present time and , amongst the Telfordian faithful, there is much frustration felt about the tactics and management style of the current manager Andy Sinton.
Despite this the visitors showed up well in the period following Bretts opener. In fact it might be fair to say that they had the best of it in terms of possession and chances.
Jos was called into action on several occasions and showed his value to the team. Had we not been a goal to the good the half time whistle may have been met with a few cat calls from the notoriously restless Wrexhamites.
Coming out for the second half it was obvious that the Town had been urged on to greater effort. Revelling in the space created by Joes laser like passing,we started to turn the screw. Goals for Danny, Brett and the promising Nick Rushton took all the tension out of the match and the home support relapsed into a contented slumber.
Telford finally got the goal their efforts deserved and 4 -1 was possibly a harsh outcome for the visitors.
All of ours played well but the Joe Clarke Man of the Match Award must go to Brett who scored two,made one and generally made it a long afternoon for the Telford defence.
4,300 was not a great turnout and it has to be said that our gates are now starting to cause some concern. It is not perverse to wonder what impact this might have on Mr Morrels plans for January.
