Ryan Reynolds left ‘completely speechless’ as Wrexham produce huge FA Cup upset

Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds admitted to being left "completely and totally speechless" following his side's stunning victory in the FA Cup third round.

The National League side produced one of the biggest giant-killings of the competition so far as they defied all expectations to beat Championship outfit Coventry 4-3 in a thrilling contest at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

"I’m completely and totally speechless," Reynolds wrote on Twitter after the game. "What a club. What a town. What a win. @Wrexham_AFC forever."

The Dragons stormed into an early 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Sam Dalby and Elliot Lee, and although the home side pulled one back mid-way through the first half via Ben Sheaf, Thomas O'Connor restored Wrexham's two-goal cushion deep into first half stoppage time.

Coventry defender Jonathan Panzo was then sent off for a foul in the box and when Wrexham forward Paul Mullin converted the resulting penalty, victory for Wrexham seemed assured.

But the Sky Blues fought their way back into the contest with two further goals, through Viktor Gyokeres and Kasey Palmer to set up the mother of all nervy finishes.

Mercifully, Wrexham held on as they registered yet another dramatic high-scoring victory under the Reynolds-McElhenney ownership.
