Paul Mullin scored his fourth hat-trick of the season as Wrexham returned to the Vanarama National League summit on 100 points with a 5-1 win over Oldham.

Eoghan O’Connell headed Wrexham in front midway through the first half from close range before another header from Mullin doubled their lead.

Liam Hogan pulled one back in stoppage time from John Rooney’s free-kick but just five minutes after the interval, the lead was two again as Elliot Lee finished from outside the box.

Mullin struck again with 20 minutes remaining, his 33rd league goal of the season and 42nd in all competitions, before Oldham striker Mike Fondop was sent off in the closing stages for an elbow on O’Connell.

Mullin’s late third finished the scoring as Wrexham reached a century of points and moved three ahead of Notts County in the race for the lone automatic promotion place.

And Mullin and Davies still won’t get picked for Wales. Page is out of his depth. They may play for Wrexham but their quality is clearly not that of level of that league. Both are clearly good enough to play for Wales.
