After a thrilling 3-2 triumph over Notts County on Easter Monday, Wrexham are in the leading position to secure promotion to the Football League
Just before half-time, Notts County scored the first goal with a stunning free-kick from John Bostock. However, Wrexham’s top scorer Paul Mullin quickly equalized just after the break by sweeping home a cross from James Jones.
Wrexham then took the lead for the first time when Jacob Mendy scored from Mullin’s cross. Notts County responded well and leveled the score when captain Kyle Cameron headed in at the back post.
In the 83rd minute, Wrexham capitalized on poor defending and went ahead 3-2 through Elliott Lee. Notts County still had a chance to equalize in stoppage time after they won a penalty for a handball, but Cedwyn Scott’s shot was saved by goalkeeper Ben Foster.
Despite the thrilling game, Wrexham emerged as the potential winner for promotion to the Football League.
Wrexham striker Mullin was the standout performer, being involved in all three of their goals. He scored the first, a superb curling finish. He then assisted the second, chasing down a long ball to set up Mendy.
Mullin also played a part in the third, providing the pass to Lee. Despite Foster‘s heroics in saving the penalty, Mullin’s performance was crucial in securing the three points that puts Wrexham three points clear with a game in hand.
Notts County’s defender, Geraldo Bajrami, will not forget this moment anytime soon. He made a crucial error just after his team equalized, which resulted in Wrexham’s victory.
The 23-year-old had the task of clearing a ball into the box. But instead, he unintentionally passed it to Mullin, who then assisted Lee in scoring the decisive goal.
