How did Wrexham AFC’s players rate at Eastleigh?

How did Wrexham AFC’s players rate at Eastleigh? Eastleigh v Wrexham April 7th 2018



Wrexham made it four wins out of five to remain top of the National League standings.

Goals from Manny Smith, an own goal and a late effort from Mike Fondop, his fourth of the season, saw the Dragons seal a 3-1 win at Eastleigh, Paul McCallum pulling one back for the Spitfires.

Here Post sport writer Rob Griffiths runs his eye over the Dragons showing.

Rob Lainton

Survived one early scare, of his own making, could do nothing about Paul McCallum’s goal and was otherwise rarely troubled. 7

Mark Carrington

Solid at right-back, did his necessary duties to keep the Spitfires attack quiet. 7

Manny Smith

Took his goal well and was imperious at the back, as usual. 8

Shaun Pearson

Won header after header as Eastleigh poured forward in search of a way back into the contest. 8

James Jennings

Excellent from the left-back, was rarely troubled by in defence, and was a constant outlet with a number of forays forward to bolster the attack. 8

Paul Rutherford

A tireless but also a very intelligent showing from the diminutive midfielder, who seems have found a renewed lease of life for the Dragons. 8

Akil Wright

Outstanding display from the midfielder, covered every blade of grass and made countless telling interventions. Just needs to add a goals threat to his game. 8

Luke Summerfield

Put in two stunning deliveries that led to Wrexham’s opening goals, and was a composed figure in the middle of the park. 7

Rekeil Pyke

Mopped up a lot in an advanced position. Worked hard defensively and was a good foil for his attacking partners. 7

Mike Fondop

Should have scored one in the first half as he reached Jennings’ cross, and was a powerful presence in attack, taking his goal superbly to wrap up the win. 7

Jordan Maguire-Drew

Went close to adding further goals to his tally, hit the bar with one free kick, and was lively throughout. 7

Nicky Deverdics (on for Rutherford on 61)

Some nice touches from the substitute as Wrexham held firm. 6

Chris Holroyd (on for Maguire-Drew on 70)

Not really involved as Wrexham needed to soak up late pressure. 6

Stuart Beavon (on for Pyke on 75)

A lively showing on his late cameo, set up Fondop for one effort, and helped see out the contest. 6
