Wrexham beat Notts County in an incredible National League top of the table clash

Wrexham beat Notts County in an incredible National League top of the table clash

Wrexham and Notts County met at the Racecourse ground in a scintillating advert for English football.

Wrexham triumphed over Notts County in a breathtaking top of the table clash in the National League on Easter Monday.

After Wrexham's shock loss to Halifax Town, the two sides went into the game level on 100 points and goals scored and delivered a brilliant advert for Non League football at the Racecourse ground.

Former Spurs and Crystal Palace midfielder John Bostock put the visitors 1-0 up on the stroke of half-time with a phenomenal curling free-kick.

But Wrexham talisman Paul Mullin popped up with a leveller before Jacob Mendy scored the goal that put the Dragons in the lead and sent Hollywood owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney into raptures.

The Magpies captain Kyle Cameron headed home an equaliser at the far post but not long after Elliot Lee bagged Wrexham's winner after being teed up by Muillin.

However, the dramatic, end-to-end encounter had one final twist as Notts County were awarded a penalty for handball deep into stoppage time - only for 40-year-old Ben Foster to produce a heroic save from 12 yards.

You just know that his next matchday vlog episode is going to be the best the former England goalkeeper has ever put together.

It's a huge result in the bid to be playing League Two football next term. Wrexham, having lost out in the play-off semi-finals last term to Grimsby Town after finishing second, are very much in the driving seat.

They are three points clear and also have a game in hand over their title rivals.

Much to the frustration of many, only one automatic promotion spot is up for grabs and teams from second down to seventh will tussle it out in the play-offs.

After the game, hero Foster branded the automatic promotion format "almost a shambles".

He told BT Sport: "Obviously we're [Wrexham and Notts County] far and away better than the rest of the teams, so they need to look at that. But fair play to Notts County, that was as good a game as I've played in, genuinely."
