WREXHAM'S 2,000 travelling fans made the short journey home down the A5 singing the praises of substitute Lee Jones, whose last-minute goal snatched victory against Shrewsbury Town last night.
Jones struck with two seconds of normal time remaining, ignoring the home team's appeals for offside, to end the stalemate with a clinical finish that extended the Dragons' unbeaten run and, more importantly, lifted them to the third automatic promotion spot in the Third Division.
Acknowledging that it was his first goal since December, Jones said: "I've not had the best of seasons but Lee Trundle and Andy Morrell have both done very well, so I can't really argue with that."
Jones insisted he was not in an offside position when he met a long clearance from Craig Morgan. "I ran across the defender and I got ahead of him. I got a good first touch, which helped a lot and thankfully the ball went into the net, because that's what I'm paid for," he said.
Wrexham manager Denis Smith said 17-year-old Morgan, making his first league start, had coped admirably under pressure and added: "In the first half we were in control but they came back after the break and their first shot on target went in.
"We were under a great deal of pressure then - and the pitch didn't help - but we scored two good goals and we might have had a penalty near the end when Morrell was clattered by Mark Cartwright. But Lee Jones showed his quality when he came on."
