1. LOSING TO MK DONS ON THE OPENING DAY OF THE SEASON: It might not have felt it at the time but losing 5-3 to MK Dons on Wrexham’s return to the Football League wasn’t a bad thing.

Expectations went up a notch following the record-breaking 2022-23 season but the Reds, installed as League Two title favourites, were brought down to earth on the opening day by MK who spoiled the party.

Wrexham didn’t lose once at home on their way to clinching the National League title but defeat was described as a reality check by Phil Parkinson and that life at a higher level wasn’t going to be as easy as what some people thought.

2. BEATING NOTTS COUNTY 2-0 - BEST AWAY WIN OF THE SEASON: Wrexham came out on top following a thrilling title race with Notts County for non-league’s top prize in 2022-23 and the rivals renewed acquaintances at Meadow Lane in League Two at the end of October.

It was another competitive affair between two teams at the right end of the table and Wrexham won 2-0 after scoring twice in three minutes in the second half through Elliot Lee and Ollie Palmer.

This was a big win at the time and showed that Wrexham could compete with the best in the fourth tier, before the Magpies tailed away.

3.TOP OF THE TABLE VICTORY AGAINST MANSFIELD TOWN: The Good Friday clash at The Raceourse was a top of the table match against Mansfield Town that Wrexham needed to win to maintain their own promotion challenge and put a dent in the Stags’ hopes of a top-three finish.

There was a lot riding on the game which was picked up for live television coverage by Sky Sports, and Phil Parkinson’s men rose to the occasion.

A goal in each half from leading scorer Paul Mullin secured victory and kept Wrexham on course for automatic promotion going into the final month of the season.

4. BEATING CRAWLEY TOWN TO STAND ON THE BRINK OF AUTOMATIC PROMOTION: There’s been ups and downs during Wrexham’s first season back in the Football League but the players stood up to the plate when it came to crunch time.

Winning is all that matters in the run-in but the Reds produced an excellent performance and got the result they needed against in-form Crawley at The Racecourse.

Ryan Barnett, Paul Mullin (2) and Andy Cannon got the goals as Wrexham took a step closer to automatic promotion.

5. CLINCHING A SECOND PROMOTION IN A ROW BY BEATING FOREST GREEN: Wrexham knew that if they won and results elsewhere were favourable, they would be guaranteed a top-three finish.

Phil Parkinson’s men just had to take care of their own business and they did that, thrashing relegation-threatened Forest Green 6-0 in another Racecourse classic.

Elliot Lee, Paul Mullin (2), Ryan Barnett and Jack Marriott found the net along with an own goal and with MK Dons and Barrow both losing their games, Wrexham were promoted with two games to go.
