It was a bittersweet afternoon for Wrexham supporters and Ryan Reynolds lovers two Sundays ago as the Welsh club came ever so close to recording an unforgettable FA Cup upset.
Victory over Championship high-flyers Sheffield United was just minutes away following Paul Mullin's strike amid a wild second half of vintage cup football. But the Blades, who had been reduced to ten men after Danny Jebbison's dismissal, refused to succumb at the Racecourse Ground.
John Egan restored parity at 3-3 in stoppage time to force a replay against the galvanised National League outfit. Thus, Wrexham will make the trip to Bramall Lane on Wednesday night with a home tie against Tottenham on the line. It's a huge outing for Reynolds and company, with many poised to tune in to watch the action unfold.
