Stockport County 2 Wrexham 3

Wrexham bounced back from going a goal behind, netted two penalties, saw Neil Ashton grab them both and then get sent off for celebrating. This was a match that had so much entertainment for the crowd at Edgeley Park and those watching on television.

1 Hattersley drives ball at goal, Hobson only needed to touch home for County, but couldn't so Coughlin able to grab it a yard off his line.

2 At the other end, more Wrexham pressure and Ciss drives just wide from 18 yards.

3 Hobson seemed to be through on Coughlin, but great tackle by Ashton - phew!

8 Frantic start from both sides as ball swings from end-to-end - Jay Harris brings down Hobson and gets a long warning from the ref.

9 Harris booked for another lunge! Now a one match ban so will miss Lincoln City on Saturday.

15 Danny Wright cross in and out of play as Stephen Wright fired home - disallowed!

22 Ball down their left by Sean Newton, round the back of our line and fired home from close range by Danny Hattersley.

23 Wrexham straight back and Wright effort deflected inches wide for a corner.

24 Stephen Wrightnot denied this time as he heads home Keates' corner - beating the keeper from close range, although some dispute as to whether it was Hattersley who got the last touch for an own goal..

27 Danny Wright from the edge of the box curling effort just outside the right hand post.

33 Hunt cross into County box hits defender Andy Halls's out stretched arms - ref waves play on! He then gets booked for protesting.

34 Inswinging corner taken by Adrian Cieslewicz from the left by-line, Paul Turnbull concedes a penalty for a foul on Chris Westwood. Penalty taken left-footed by Neil Ashton and scored.

45 Stephen Wright cross in Danny Wright header over the advancing keeper but also over the bar - one minute of added time.

45 Another Reds’ free kick that has County in all sorts of trouble before the referee blows up for the break.

Ht 2-1

55 Long ball over the top for Mozza to chase but Fagbola used his bulk to win the ball back.

56 Good play by Reds ends with Wright shooting straight at keeper from 8 yards.

59 Wrexham wasted a corner and County broke 4 on 3, but Collins rising shot was just wide of the mark.

64 Whitehead fired over from 18 yards for County, after a pull back.

Both Harris and Ciss have long range shots held by the keeper.

69 Riley header at the back post should have scored but into the side netting, S Wright near post flick on at a corner.

79Lewis King gives away a penalty for an unfair challenge on Danny Wright. The spot kick was taken left-footed by Neil Ashton and he scored.

Ashton was then shown a red card for second bookable offence, deemed as leaving the pitch as he celebrated in front of the travelling Red Army.

83 Danny Hattersley got County back to 3-2 with a header from a ball into the box by Newton - Coughlin came but didn’t get there.

A great result, even if the dismissal of Ashy did take the edge of a tremendous three points.
