ROB McElhenney has provided with a Wrexham AFC fan with a work sick note so they can watch Monday's FA Cup tie at Blackburn Rovers. 

The Reds travel to Lancashire on Monday night for the fourth round tie against the Championship side. 

Due to it being a Monday, some of Wrexham's overseas fans will be working while the match takes place. 

The Canadian Red Dragons account on X (formerly Twitter), posted saying: "Hey @VancityReynolds, @RMcElhenney and @Wrexham_AFC can you provide me with a sick note for work so I can watch the match on Monday? #WxmAFC". 

Wrexham's co-owner Rob McElhenney replied with an 'official sick note'. It reads "To whom it may concern, @WrexhamCanada is hearby excused from work on Monday January 29, 2024. They have a weird cough or something. If that's not enough of an excuse, let's go with the flu. 

"Wouldn't you hate to catch it they showed up for work in that condition? They are cleared to come back on Tuesday January 30, 2024. 

"Oh, I think that happens to be the day after the Wrexham match. Weird timing."


He signs it off with 'Dr McElhenney', adding: "Don't Google my credentials, just trust me. I'm a real doctor."

An army of 7,000 Wrexham fans will be filling the away end in what promises to be an incredible atmosphere. 

The match will be shown live on BBC One, with the build up from 7pm ahead of the 7.30pm kick off.
