Wrexham closed the gap to Notts County at the top of the National League to two points with a 2-1 victory at Solihull Moors.

The Welsh side arrived in the West Midlands unbeaten in 11 matches and off the back of a 5-0 win over the same opponents on Boxing Day, and stormed out of the blocks as Jordan Tunnicliffe put them in front after 10 minutes with his first goal for the club.

The visitors doubled their lead 20 minutes into the second half when Tom O’Connor found the net with a free-kick.

The hosts pulled one back when Bartosz Cybulski turned in Ryan Bennett’s cross late on, but Wrexham held on to take the points.

Phil Parkinson’s side went into Monday’s game five points behind County but with two games in hand after the Magpies drew 2-2 with Oldham on New Year’s Day.
