Wrexham go top of the league with win at Scunthorpe
Wrexham moved to the top the National League table as Phil Parkinson’s men defeated struggling Scunthorpe 3-1 at Glanford Park.
Ollie Palmer put the visitors ahead with a 21st-minute finish and Aaron Hayden’s header then doubled the advantage just past the half-hour mark.
Scunthorpe pulled a goal back three minutes before half-time through Jai Rowe.
But Paul Mullin wrapped things up for Wrexham by firing past Marcus Dewhurst in the 70th minute, his 13th league goal of the season.
A fourth successive victory for Phil Parkinson’s men saw them replace Notts County at the summit, going a point clear, while Scunthorpe remained 21st.
