The Harriers slumped back to the foot of the table this evening after a first half collapse at Wrexham that saw them go down 2-0 after a Kelvin Langmead slip up allowed Kayden Jackson to open the scoring then following it up fifteen minutes later with a scrambled effort that broke the Harriers spirits. A late second half rally saw the Harriers try to get a consolation goal but the hosts soaked up everything we could muster.
With an un-changed starting line-up to the team that started at home to Chester on Saturday there was just one change on the bench with James McQuilkin coming in for Zaine Francis-Angol. Wrexham had former Harriers Lee Fowler and Simon Heslop playing for them.
To see we were bad in the first half was an understatement. We were shockingly bad and unlike recent games where we took control of the first half we hadn't got a clue this time. Maybe our usual poor second halves would do a swap too and we would run riot.
It took as long as fifteen minutes for the home side to open the scoring when Langmead mis-judged a poor Wrexham ball towards our goal and it slipped under his foot to be pounced on by Jackson. Langmead tried to recover but he was brushed off as Jackson headed for goal and send the ball into the net with ease.
Wrexham began to carve us open with impunity and it wasn't going to be long until they got their second goal. A quick corner was played short to Fowler who then sent the ball towards the box and into a ruck of players. Jackson got a foot to the ball and over the line it went.
The home side backed off a little after that goal but without giving us any room. Too many of our players were having a bad game and it showed.
