Wrexham remain marooned at the foot of the table following a fourth successive league defeat at Edgeley Park this afternoon.
It was no more than the Dragons deserved after another insipid and uninspiring display against opponents hardly high on confidence as a result of their indifferent start to the campaign.
But County were some way better that Brian Carey’s sorry Racecourse outfit and just about merited the three points in a match short on both quality and entertainment.
The Dragons went ahead, slightly against the run of play in the 25th minute, their goal owing much to an error of judgement by home keeper, Conrad Logan.
He really should have been favourite to hold a long punt forward from Wrexham defender Neil Taylor, but it was Marc Williams who got there first to steer the ball into an unguarded net.
The lead lasted just four minutes, though, and it was another route one effort that brought the County equaliser, Logan’s kick being helped on by Matty McNeil.
Wales international Steve Evans misjudged the bounce and Anthony Elding struck the ball first time to beat Anthony Williams from 25 yards.
But neither side was able to step up the pace or willing to take too many risks and it was not until the 65th minute that the home side got their noses in front. Dominic Blizzard heading home from close range after a corner.
Wrexham, who had lacked spark and initiative throughout, looked a beaten side well before the end, merely going through the motions. And they were fortunate not to concede again in the latter stages.
