Late Mullin Double Secures Wrexham Victory Over Mansfield Town



Wrexham emerged victorious in a crucial clash against Mansfield Town, with a late brace from Paul Mullin securing a 2-0 win at the STōK Cae Ras stadium. The result has significant implications for the promotion race in Sky Bet League Two.

In a tense encounter, Mansfield suffered a setback early on as Elliott Hewitt had to be replaced due to injury, disrupting Nigel Clough‘s plans. Both teams started aggressively, with Wrexham’s James McClean receiving an early yellow card for a strong challenge. The game unfolded with intensity as both sides sought to gain the upper hand.

Despite Mansfield’s early control of possession, it was Wrexham who broke the deadlock on 32 minutes. A clinical finish from Paul Mullin put the home side in front, capitalizing on a defensive lapse in the Stags’ backline. The goal shifted momentum towards the hosts.

Mansfield looked to respond, with Davis Keillor-Dunn coming close to equalizing, only to see his effort blocked by Max Cleworth. The visitors continued to push forward but were unable to find the breakthrough, heading into halftime trailing by a goal.

After the break, Mansfield made tactical changes, introducing James Gale and Tom Nichols to spark their attack. The Stags thought they had leveled the score through Keillor-Dunn, but the goal was controversially disallowed for a perceived foul on the goalkeeper.

Wrexham then extended their lead through a contentious penalty decision, with Mullin converting from the spot. The Stags were left frustrated by the referee’s call, as replays showed the foul occurred outside the box. Steven Fletcher had a chance to make it three for Wrexham, but his effort went wide.

The result leaves Mansfield in the automatic promotion places in League Two, with a crucial home fixture against Accrington Stanley up next. Wrexham’s victory sees them level on points with the Stags, setting up an intriguing finale to the season.
