James Jones completes comeback as Wrexham down Bromley
Promotion-chasing Wrexham built on their FA Cup exploits by keeping up the pressure on Vanarama National League leaders Notts County thanks to a 2-1 victory over Bromley.
Substitute James Jones made an instant impact at the Racecourse Ground, firing home the deflected winner 16 minutes from time, having just replaced Thomas O’Connor.
Phil Parkinson’s second-placed hosts, who defeated Sky Bet Championship club Coventry 4-3 in the third round of the cup on Saturday, were forced to come from behind after Corey Whitely converted Louis Dennis’ cross from close range in the 33rd minute.
Wrexham’s top scorer Paul Mullin levelled the contest with his 24th goal of the season in all competitions, scoring from the penalty spot a minute before the break.
Notts County were left looking over their shoulder after only managing a draw with Boreham Wood.
The 1-1 draw at home allowed Wrexham to cut the Magpies lead at the top of the National League table to three points with two games in hand.
The visitors took the lead one minute before the half-time break but County equalised in the 56th minute later when Cedwyn Scott headed home from John Bostock’s cross.
