Goal Log
25th min. - 0-1 - Roberts only parried out a right-wing cross-shot and Theo Bailey-Jones opened the score with Wrexham's only shot of the first half.
53rd min - 0-2 - a mistake by Holden lets in another right-wing cross which beats Roberts, leaving Iwan Cartwright to tap into an empty net.
73rd min - 1-2 - at last! Hewitt gets his reward with a fine goal.

Good to see Preston and Taylor get some game time. Hewitt worked very hard in his lone advanced striker role. However, the Reserves have the same "DNA" as the 1st Team - plenty of pretty tip-tap but a reluctance to test the opposing goalkeeper with shots!
Hewitt missed a penalty in the 48th minute, hitting the cross-bar with his shot.
Roberts made his only save in the 56th minute.
