Ryan Reynolds admits ‘maths isn’t his strength’ as Wrexham go top of the league

Ryan Reynolds admitted that maths is not his strength as he reacted to Wrexham going top of the National League on Sunday.

A brace from Ollie Palmer and a stoppage time goal from Paul Mullin sealed a 3-0 victory at the Racecourse Ground over Stockport County for the Dragons. As a result of the victory, Wrexham have leapfrogged Stockport into first place in the National League ahead of next weekend's final day of fixtures.

Wrexham co-owner Reynolds could not contain his excitement at full-time as he took to Twitter to react to the crucial win over their only remaining title rivals.

Reynolds quote tweeted the club's confirmation of the full-time whistle, writing: “I don’t know what happens from here. Math has never been my strong suit. But @Wrexham_AFC supporters did their part. As they’ve always done. I’m so proud of this club.”

His club are now ahead of Stockport at the top of the table on goal difference, leading them by two goals, although their rivals do have a game in hand.

Only the league champions are automatically promoted to League Two, with the clubs finishing second to seventh heading into the play-offs for the final promotion place.

Will Wrexham be promoted from the National League this season? Let us know in the comments section below.

Wrexham have been out of the Football League for 14 years, having been relegated from League Two in 2008 after finishing the season bottom of the table.

They will be hoping to put that period in non-league to an end next Sunday when they travel to Dagenham & Redbridge on the final day of the season. That match is followed by the FA Trophy final, a competition they last won in 2013, against Bromley at Wembley Stadium a week later.

Reynolds completed a takeover of the club alongside fellow actor Rob McElhenney at the end of 2020 and Wrexham even made a return to the FIFA video game series this season.
