Wrexham woe as they fail to make play-off final
Wrexham have failed to make the Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final, as they lost to Luton by three goals to two on aggregate.
Despite the Dragons scoring two goals at the Racecourse in the play-off second leg this afternoon, it was not enough to see them through.
It looked to be all over for Wrexham early on, but they began a fightback after sixty minutes through an Adrian Cieslewicz goal.
Andy Morrell scored a second on seventy-six minutes to give them a glimmer of hope.
But it was too late for the Dragons. Despite a good season, it is over until August.
