In what might have been the most exciting contest in the fourth round of this year’s FA Cup, Wrexham and Sheffield United when blow-for-blow at The Racecourse in North Wales two weekends ago. Sheffield went up in the opening moments of the match, before Wrexham bounced back with a pair of goals in the second half to take the lead. After Oliver Norwood scored for the visitors to level the score, Wrexham’s star striker, Paul Mullin, gave the “non-league” squad what seemed to be the winning goal. However, while playing with 10 men due to a red card, John Egan scored in stoppage time to ensure a replay, with the match ending in a 3-3 draw. There is no question it was Wrexham’s best chance at securing a spot in the fifth round for the first time since 1997.

Off the pitch, the transfer embargo appears to remain in place with speculation mounting that an 18-month sanction might be in the pipeline. Blades fans' sense of unease has multiplied after the Daily Mail claimed that prospective new owner Dozy Mmobuosi, who is believed to have made a £90 million bid, might not have the wherewithal to complete the deal. They suggest his tech company, Tingo, has lost 94% of its value over the last twelve months. Manager Paul Heckingbottom has sensibly declared that he isn't going to field any further questions on the takeover, as he wants to focus on football. He told YorkshireLive, "It's irrelevant to us.
Our first game there was a Second Division match in April 1979: our first campaign in the second tier was drawing to a close, and we'd secured a comfortabe mid-table finish, while the Blades were mired in the relegation zone. We were the better side in the opening stages and took the lead when Steve Buxton's header was turned into his own net by Blades defender Les Tibbott.
The lads have been brilliant. You don't go unbeaten on the run we're on if you haven't got that focus. The lads are good. They haven't looked for excuses from day one. We speak about it a lot, no excuses. Simple, no excuses and we don't expect anything less. "Stuff that could potentially be a distraction we just don't entertain it.
We have had the talk of the embargo, takeover but not on the training ground. " The club will tell you something when they have something to say. Football and the players are my focus. We know we have a busy couple of weeks coming up with Wrexham now at the forefront of our mind. - Paul Heckingbottom HEAD TO HEAD We've played at Bramall Lane three times, and are still looking for our first win.
