Jermaine McGlashan admits a weight has been lifted off his shoulders after playing his part in the win that helped Wrexham secure a play-off spot for the first time in six years, The Leader report.

By his own admission, McGlashan has struggled to make an impact since joining on loan from Swindon in March and he was delighted to get the goal.

“I think it was my first touch a couple of minutes after coming on and I am buzzing for it to be the winner,” said McGlashan. “Three points is what the boys deserved.
