Bryan Hughes slammed Wrexham’s horror show against Barrow on Tuesday night as ‘not acceptable’ and felt his side were lacking their usual “desire and commitment”, North Wales Live say.

Barrow took an early lead as an unmarked Dan Jones headed home from a corner inside three minutes, before Jacob Blyth took advantage of a poor clearance from James Jennings to make it 2-0 on 24 minutes.

And a third mistake by the Dragons gave Lewis Hardcastle the chance to add a third for the Bluebirds in first half injury time and all but wrap up the win.

Kieran Kennedy pulled one back for the home side, but it was to prove nothing more than a consolation effort as the Dragons suffered a second successive defeat to slip to third place in the National League, but perhaps more tellingly four points behind leaders Leyton Orient.

Hughes was honest in his post-match summation, but felt the performance was out of character for his charges.

“I don’t think we handled the conditions very well if I am being honest,” said the Dragons boss, following the 3-1 loss at the Racecourse.

“Barrow came here and they have done a job, they played to the conditions, they worked hard, they turned us, they got into areas, especially in that first half where they could get plenty of bodies into the box and we couldn’t handle it to be honest.”
