GALLERY | Wrexham AFC 5-5 Swindon Town

Elliot Lee's 96th minute goal earns the Red Dragons a dramatic draw

21 August 2023

Wrexham AFC fought back from 4-1 down to claim a hard-earned point against Swindon Town.

A single goal for Jake Bickerstaff in the first half was not enough to stop Wrexham trailing at the break, against the strong-starting Swindon.

With the support of the fans around the STōK Cae Ras, the Red Dragons roared on. And it wasn't long until the ball found the back of the net. A penalty scored by Elliot Lee early into the second half brought Wrexham back into the fight. James Jones pulled another goal back, but the visitors' 71st-minute strike - to make it 5-3 - looked to have taken the sting out of the comeback.

However, more drama was to follow. Jones scored a second in stoppage time and then, in the 96th-minute, Luke Young stepped up to take a free kick from just outside the 18-yard box. The goalkeeper parried the ball clear, which rebounded back into the path of Lee who sent it straight past the keeper to spark pandemonium in the stands.
