Sheffield United vs Wrexham AFC preview

Sheffield United have to be thrilled that they are getting a second chance. Granted, the Championship side also has to be kicking themselves that they let things get this far, but at least now they have a chance to make things right. 

After taking the lead in the second minute, it seemed that Wrexham — of Welcome to Wrexham fame — would have finally reached a challenge too steep to overcome. After all, Sheffield United, currently second in the Championship, is three tiers above National League Wrexham in the English Football pyramid. They were in the Premier League as recently as 2021 and are currently poised to make a return to the pinnacle of English football. You would expect them to handle lowly Wrexham with ease, and after two minutes it seemed they were going to do exactly that.

But Wrexham may not be so lowly anymore. The Welsh side has been revitalized since the takeover by celebrity owners Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds and was a bit unlucky to end their last campaign without silverware or promotion to the English Football League Two. This year they have stepped it up even further, and currently sit second in the National League but with two games in hand over league leaders Notts County. They've also played giant-killer in the FA Cup this year already, knocking off Championship side Coventry in the third round.

So when they took the lead on an 86th-minute Paul Mullin goal, it seemed like the team of destiny from Wales would continue on to the fifth round — especially with United down to just 10 men. But a 95th-minute goal from a corner kick saved Sheffield United and forced the two teams to have to do it all over again on February 7. Hopefully, it's just as exciting the second time around.
