Wilkin was dismissed following the Dragon's defeat to Conference North side North Ferriby United in the FA Trophy final - a defeat which saw Wrexham let a two goal lead slip to lose on penalties.

Mills, a former Nottingham Forest player, lead previous club Gateshead to a third place finish in the Conference last season before losing in the play-off final.

Wrexham have had a hugely disappointing season and have found it difficult to find the sort of form that lead them to within one game of a return to the Football League two seasons ago.

Mills will be Wrexham's third Manager in just over a year.

Cardiff did equalise through an Eoin Doyle header, but goals form Cole Skuse and a last minute David Murphy strike sealed the win for Ipswich, who consolidate their place in the Championship play-off places.

Goals from Cian Bolger and Stephen McLaughlin secured victory for the Shrimpers, who harbour their own promotion hopes. Newport slip to 9th following the defeat.

Meanwhile in the Conference Carl Darlington suffered his first defeat in charge of Wrexham with his side falling to a 2-1 defeat to relegation threatened Welling.

Andy Bishop's late goal wasn't enough for the Dragons, who remain in mid table.

The Conference side were 2-0 up after an hour thanks to goals from Louis Moult and Lee Harris, before a Liam King penalty started a remarkable come-back from the side from Yorkshire.

Ryan Kendall equalised five minutes before full time and then scored a header in extra time to put the Conference North side in the lead.

Moult then scored his second of the game to ensure the match went to penalties, but Adam Nicklin's stop from Steve Tomassen's spot kick ensured there was no repeat of Wrexham's win on penalties in the same competition two years ago.
