Eastleigh defeated away to Wrexham

October 8, 2017

Ben Williamson opened the scoring for Eastleigh but it wasn’t enough

In front of the BT Sport cameras, Richard Hill’s Spitfires were defeated away to Wrexham on Saturday despite taking the lead in the first half.

Chris Holroyd capped a fine comeback win for Wrexham against Eastleigh to stretch their unbeaten run to 10 games in the Vanarama National League

Ben Williamson, returning after a hamstring injury, put Eastleigh ahead when he slid in to convert Gary McSheffrey’s whipped near-post cross.

Wrexham left their revival until the final quarter when Shaun Pearson met a Marcus Kelly cross with a sharp header to equalise.

Within five minutes the hosts struck again, as Holroyd swivelled in the box to stroke home the winner.
