Ryan Reynolds got the blockbuster he craved but not the romantic upset that Wrexham deserved. The National League leaders were on the verge of beating Sheffield United and reaching the fifth round for the first time in 26 years when John Egan ruined their script with a 95th-minute equaliser.
A sequel awaits, and the team pursuing promotion to the Premier League were fortunate to get it. Paul Mullin, a menace to Paul Heckingbottom’s team throughout a thrilling cup tie, edged Wrexham ahead with four minutes of normal time remaining at a raucous Racecourse Ground.
