Wrexham climbed up to second in League Two following a 2-0 win against AFC Wimbledon.

Steven Fletcher and Paul Mullin struck after half-time to inflict defeat on the Dons, who dropped out of the play-off places.

Phil Parkinson’s side extended their winning run at home in the league to eight matches but they had to scrap to see off a visiting team who had plenty of chances to take the lead.

Aron Sasu’s low effort dragged wide early on, before the Dons midfielder struck the top of the crossbar on the quarter-hour mark.

Josh Davison nodded Jack Currie’s cross over, while the dangerous Sasu forced Wrexham goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo into action after 20 minutes.

Fired wide

After the break, Davison missed a glorious chance to put the Dons ahead when he fired wide in a one-on-opportunity.

Wrexham burst into life moments later, with Alex Bass denying Elliot Lee before Fletcher’s shot clipped the bar.

Fletcher put the hosts ahead in the 61st minute when he met James McClean’s corner at the back post.

The Dragons doubled the lead eight minutes later when McClean’s cross was not cleared and Mullin was on hand to fire home.

Mullin should have had his second not long after but nodded straight at Bass.
