There were manic scenes at The Racecourse as Wrexham scored a famous 3-0 victory against arch rivals Stockport County in their top of the table clash.

Ollie Palmer scored twice to leapfrog their rivals into top spot in the National League.

Wrexham now lead on goal difference but Stockport have a game in hand and will still secure automatic promotion if they win their two remaining fixtures.

County had hoped to secure the title in north Wales but Paul Mullin came close to opening the scoring for Wrexham from an overhead kick.

Paddy Madden missed a chance for the visitors before Palmer headed Wrexham in front in the 34th minute by heading home a Ben Tozer throw.

Mullin latched onto a pass from Jordan Davies to make it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time and Palmer headed home a Davies free-kick two minutes into the second period.

Wrexham were in cruise control for the remainder of the game as they look to next weekend’s final game at Dagenham with renewed hope of securing a return to the Football League.

Obviously this is good for Wrexham. However we correctly complain when the British media ignore Cymru. Yet here we are with an indepence supporting news site that only reports on Welsh teams playing in the English system. For example not one outlet here in Cymru reported the FAW Cup Final. At least report on the Cymru Premier next year and acknowledge the domestic game.
