Mullin shines as rampant Wrexham net six against worrisome Torquay

Publish Date:24/09/2022
Fact checked by: James Leeland

Paul Mullin netted his eighth goal of the campaign, as a free-scoring Wrexham maintained their 100% home record with a convincing 6-0 victory over National League strugglers Torquay United.

Man of the match Mullin picked up a goal and an assist in the six-goal demolition, further illustrating his status as one of the National League best players.

It’s the fifth consecutive home game Phil Parkinson’s side have triumphed in, notching up an impressive 19 goals during that time.

As for Torquay, their perils continue, with Gary Johnson’s side slipping to the foot of the table – a worrying time for the 2020/21 playoff runners-up.

Only two teams have conceded more goals than Torquay, with Johnson's men last keeping a clean sheet in early August  - a run of eight matches without a shutout.

The victory came on the same weekend Wrexham were remembering the Gresford Colliery Disaster - an underground explosion that took the lives of 266 workers in September 1934.

While Torquay’s only wins this season may have come away from home, a toothless first half, which saw Wrexham score three times, all but ended the visitors' hopes of snatching an unlikely result before the break.

Jordan Davies, a much-loved local boy, began proceedings for the hosts in a rudimentary fashion, nodding home from inside the penalty area just 11 minutes into the match.

Read: Reynolds is right, it's time the National League said yes to streaming 

Absent defending from Torquay had allowed an unmarked Davies to ghost into the box, with similar carelessness leading to the hosts' second midway through the first half.

Mullin, who had already netted seven times heading into the weekend, was alert inside the box to sweep Luke Young’s miss-hit shot beyond a helpless Mark Halstead in the Torquay goal.

Now in the groove, two would become three just before the break, with Mullin once again involved, this time providing the cross for strike partner Ollie Palmer to guide home.

Yet another example of the duo’s devastating qualities, with the pair having now scored a combined 15 goals between them for the campaign.

With the points effectively wrapped up inside the opening 45 minutes, and a leaky Torquay backline having conceded three goals for the third time in five outings, the intensity dropped after the break, as Wrexham took control of possession.

Even still, with the quality Wrexham posses in their ranks, it was always going to be a tough task for Torquay to keep the division’s most potent attack quiet.

The fourth arrived via Aaron Hayden, who leapt highest in the box to nod home yet another corner for the hosts, much to the delight of the 9,800 Wrexham supporters inside the Racecourse Ground.

Emphasising their strength in depth, summer signing and substitute Sam Dalby needed little invitation to get in on the act, tapping home his first goal in Wrexham red late on.

All before Anthony Forde capped off a memorable afternoon at the Racecourse, scoring his first goal for the club and taking Wrexham's tally to a remarkable six.
