Paul Mullin found the net twice as Wrexham took a significant step towards securing a second consecutive promotion with a commanding 4-1 victory over Crawley Town at home on Tuesday.

The outcome propels the club, under the ownership of Hollywood luminaries Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, into second place in League Two with just three fixtures left in the season.

The top three teams secure automatic promotion, and Wrexham currently enjoy a comfortable five-point lead over fourth-placed Mansfield Town.

This result means the Welsh outfit require only five points from their remaining trio of matches to clinch a spot in League One, England’s third division, having ascended from the National League just a year ago.

Their latest triumph on Tuesday, witnessed by a crowd of 11,544 at SToK Cae Ras, was effectively sealed with two quickfire goals in the first half.

Ryan Barnett broke the deadlock in the 21st minute, converting from close range at the back post following Elliot Lee’s precise delivery to notch his debut goal for the club.

Moments later, Wrexham doubled their lead as Paul Mullin registered his 101st goal for the club. Andrew Cannon provided the assist, releasing a low cross from the right side of the box for Mullin to tap in from close proximity.

The score remained 2-0 until the final quarter-hour, when Wrexham further extended their advantage with two additional goals.

Cannon found the back of the net himself, capitalizing on a rebound after Lee’s effort was parried by the goalkeeper.

Mullin completed his brace and Wrexham’s fourth goal eight minutes from time, seizing upon a loose backpass and calmly slotting the ball past the advancing Crawley goalkeeper from the edge of the penalty area.

Crawley managed to salvage a late consolation goal through Klaidi Lolos in stoppage time, but it was merely a minor consolation for the visiting side.

Wrexham will resume action on Saturday with a home fixture against Forest Green.
