We were clearly the better footballing side for 90% of the game. We looked the only side likely to win it. I personally thought Wrexham would put us under more pressure and their style of play was unattractive for most of the game. Another decision goes against us for their penalty; their players and the crowd didn't ask for anything (significant if you ask me) just a massive celebration when they were given it. I'll take the draw with a tinge of disappointment as the game was there for the taking. If I'm allowed to say it, Taylor didn't fill me with confidence today; he does have one of the best defenses in the league in front of him for those who want to quote statistics.
Just a word about the organisation, Wrexham FC, policing and crowd "control" today; shambolic. Police blaming licensees, licensees blaming the police for no entry to pubs, then told some licensees would let people in. Queuing outside the locked turnstiles well after the official opening times. Apparently not enough seats as fans were standing on the steps for the game; it was in fact our stewards controlling this which meant no choice but to stand for most of the game (not a problem for me, but difficult for my 75 year old father-in-law). Coming out of the ground we were shepherded away from the main road towards the on-coming Wrexham fans as the coach had been told to park in the university car park; quite tense when the two sets of fans met gridlocked in the passageway with a number of aggressive comments flying around. To top it all, a member of North Wales police was authoritatively directing fans in one direction for the train station whilst a little further along another officer was directing them back the other way; you couldn't make it up.
We haven't lost ground with regards to pole position which is a real positive and overall a very good performance from the lads today.

The only times I was able to sit down were before the game and at half time.I couldn't believe it when we were forced away from the main road and towards the Wrexham fans after the game whether we were on a coach or not[I wasn't].

And trying to get through past the station towards the centre of town was a shambles.
