Wrexham edge Notts County in a blockbuster National League encounter
The match between Wrexham and Notts County at the Racecourse Ground was one for the ages.

The match was attended by Hollywood stars Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds, who own the club, and they were treated to an enthralling encounter that had everything from stunning goals to late drama.
Wrexham started the match brightly and had a penalty shout turned down early on. However, it was Notts County who took the lead through John Bostock’s superb freekick just before half-time. Wrexham came out firing in the second half and equalised through Paul Mullin’s composed finish. Mullin then turned provider as he set up Jacob Mendy for Wrexham’s second goal of the match. However, Notts County, who had been in fine form themselves, equalised through Kyle Cameron’s header.
Ben Foster saved a penalty in the last minutes
With the match in the balance, Elliot Lee scored what looked like the winner for Wrexham, only for Cedwyn Scott to be awarded a penalty for Notts County in stoppage time. However, former Premier League goalkeeper Ben Foster produced a superb save to deny Scott and secure a vital win for Wrexham.
The win was an important one for Wrexham as it moved them three points clear of Notts County with four games remaining. The Dragons also have a game in hand, which means they are well placed to end their 15-year absence from the EFL. For Notts County, it was a disappointing result, but they are still in contention for automatic promotion.
The match had all the hallmarks of a classic encounter between two top teams. Both sides played with a high intensity, and there were plenty of chances created throughout the match. Wrexham’s attack, led by Mullin, was particularly impressive, and they will be hoping to carry that form into their remaining fixtures. However, their defence will need to improve if they want to survive the more demanding League Two.
The win was a season-defining one for Wrexham, who have been given a boost by the arrival of McElhenney and Reynolds. The two Hollywood stars have injected new life into the club, and their presence has generated global interest. Wrexham will be hoping to capitalise on that interest by securing promotion to the EFL.
