The hosts found themselves a man down seven minutes before half-time when defender Jamal Fyfield was dismissed for a challenge on Wrexham midfielder Jordan Davies.

National League top scorer Paul Mullin made sure the Welsh side capitalised on their numerical advantage when he put them ahead nine minutes into the second half, controlling Bryce Hosannah’s low cross before firing into the bottom corner to boost the Dragons’ hopes of securing automatic promotion.

Mullin went close to making it 2-0 in the 76th minute when his strike deflected onto the woodwork before bouncing out, and Wrexham were made to pay for not grabbing a second when Marsh converted an 89th-minute spot-kick to nick a point for Boreham Wood.

Stockport strengthened their grip at the top of the Vanarama National League leaders with a narrow 1-0 victory at Chesterfield.

Paddy Madden scored the only goal from the penalty spot just before half-time and the Spireites were unable to come back into the game.

The contest was watched by 9,198, including more than 2,500 Stockport fans. It was the Derbyshire club’s biggest attendance since they dropped down to the National League.
