Wrexham 1-1 Sutton United

We flashback a short time to the last meeting of the sides at the Racecourse on Saturday, 30th September 2017. 

Sutton United's Ross Lafayette scored an injury-time equaliser to deny Wrexham victory.

Marcus Kelly had scored after 18 minutes following a cut back from Chris Holroyd.

Wrexham would feel disappointed with the equaliser. Subsititute Jack Macreth was running down the clock at the corner flag and won what looked like a clear corner, but it was given as a goal-kick.  

Lafayette, who maybe should have seen red for a challenge on Kevin Roberts earlier on, then produced a stunning strike to deny Wrexham all three points. 

After this incident there was a clear Sutton United handball which also went unpunished, this almost led to Sutton breaking for a winner. Wrexham cleared the danger and the game ended. 

Manager Dean Keates told the media team after the game: "It was disappointing.

"In the first-half I thought we played well. Sutton put you under a lot of pressure and the boys stood up to it well.

"In the second-half I didn't think we were that great, but we created chances. We were a bit naïve. You have to put them to the sword and we didn't do that."
