RYAN REYNOLDS was Wrexham's lucky charm as he cheered the Reds to victory over Hartlepool United.

Just a day after Hollywood stars Reynolds and Rob McElhenney were given the green light to take control of Wrexham, the former was watching his side clinch a 1-0 win in Hartlepool.

Elliott Durrell conjured up what proved to be the winner with a fine strike from the edge of the area, which will have thrilled Reynolds, who tuned into the coverage with apprehension.

Alongside the picture of him watching the game, Reynolds wrote: "Be careful with my heart, lads."

And Wrexham duly obliged as they secured a first victory since October 10.
