IT was billed as the battle between two former Welsh footballing greats.

Brian Flynn was in charge at Wrexham while John Mahoney was the Bangor City boss as the two sides met at The Racecourse on October 29 1991 for a third round Welsh Cup clash.

But it was another ex-Wales great who helped rescue the Reds that night as Gordon Davies came off the bench to score a crucial equaliser after Chris Barlow had given City a sixth minute lead.

Andy Preece put Wrexham back ahead only for Tommy Lloyd to level but the Reds other super-sub that night was Lee Jones and he bagged the winner with just three minutes to go.

Sifting through the records on this day and York City appear three times with the Reds boasting an unbeaten record against The Minstermen.

It 2011, Nat Knight-Percival and a David McGurk own goal gave them a 2-1 win in the FA Cup fourth round qualifier while in 1988, Kevin Russell and Jon Bowden were on target in a 2-1 Division Four win for Dixie McNeil’s side.

Sandwiched in between, Stephen Roberts was the Reds scorer in a 1-1 draw at Bootham Crescent in 2002.

Their best wins on this day were 3-1 successes at Darlington in 1927 and in the Division Three Championship winning campaign of 1977/78 when Mickey Thomas scored twice - one a header - and John Roberts got the other in front of 9,123 fans at The Racecourse.

OCTOBER 29 RECORD: P 20; W 8; D 7; L 5.

Two seven goal thrillers showcase the Reds best displays on October 28.

A 5-2 FA Cup fourth round qualifying replay win at home to Macclesfield six years ago would take some beating but most fans who were at Kenilworth Road in 2000 will claim the Reds 4-3 comeback win at Luton certainly did.

Andy Bishop bagged two in 2014 with Johnny Hunt, Wes York and Nick Rushton also on the scoresheet.

When Liam George put The Hatters 3-0 up inside 55 minutes many travelling Reds fans had walked out but the ones who remained saw Craig Faulconbridge, Chris Killen, Martyn Chalk and Darren Ferguson (pictured left) produce an amazing turnaround.
