Wrexham 3-1 Maidstone United 

This week we flashback to December 2014 and an FA Cup second round tie at the Racecourse against Maidstone United.  

Wrexham survived a spirited second-half performance by 10-man Maidstone to go through to the FA Cup third round.

Manny Smith volleyed Wrexham into an early lead, before an Andy Bishop penalty doubled their advantage after Maidstone's Aaron Simpson was sent off for fouling Wes York in the box.

But the Stones set up a nervy finish as Alex Flisher tucked home from close range on the hour mark.

Bishop headed his second late on to seal the win for Wrexham AFC.

Wrexham would go on to face Premier League side Stoke City in the next round. Mark Carrington put Wrexham 0-1 up in the 73rd minute before Stoke sent on the big guns to win the game 3-1. 

Then Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told Carl Hogan from the Wrexham AFC Media Team after the game: "I'm delighted to be in the next round but it was a fantastic tie and both sides played in the right spirit.

"Great credit to Maidstone. They've had one or two opportunities there and they're a club on the up.

"I'm just happy to be in the next round, anybody at home would be very nice."
