League Two: the crazy match between Wrexham and Swindon Town (5-5)

Ryan Reynolds didn’t see that one coming.

Promoted to League Two, Wrexham – the club bought two years ago by the actor of Dead Pool and his pal Rob McElhenney – is having a spectacular start to the season. After eating five against MK Dons (3-5) on the first day and sticking four at Walsall on Tuesday (4-2 victory), the Welsh team, at home, delivered an even more extraordinary game with Swindon Town this SATURDAY.

The scenario ? Hang on tight: Jake Young opened the scoring for the visitors (17e), Charlie Austin made the break (27e), Jake Bickerstaff closed the gap (29e), Daniel Kemp gave a layer (31e) and Young scored twice to make it 4-1 (34e), Elliot Lee maintained hope from the penalty spot (51e), James Jones brought the locals back to a goal (55e), Kemp (second goal also for him) disgusted them by planting his fifth pawn in Ben Foster’s cage, before a crazy additional time: led 5-3 for more than twenty minutes, Wrexham could count on Jones (90e+2) and Lee (90e+6 following a free kick from Luke Young), both authors of a double, to finally snatch a point in stoppage time from stoppage time. Ten net shakes in total, and a sweet smell of ‘OL-OM hovering over Racecourse Ground.

We say thank you to the extended additional time.
