Last updated : 31 October 2004 By Footymad Previewer

At the final whistle the Wrexham fans invaded the pitch holding banners in support of their campaign to save the club and were cheered by the hundreds of Hull City supporters.

Wrexham built up a two-goal lead but Hull came back into the game with a debatable goal to reduce the lead by half-time and then they notched a deserved equaliser. Home goalkeeper Matt Baker made the long clearance that was flicked on by Chris Armstrong for Chris Llewellyn to beat Boaz Myhill with a stunner into the top right corner.

Darren Ferguson added the second goal with a solo effort, cutting across the area to curl a low shot around the keeper.

The Wrexham midfielder set up what would have been a third goal as Armstrong met his cross with a glancing header that was going inside the far post when Myhill tipped it away with a brilliant save.

City's first goal was a controversial affair following a corner. Delroy Facey drove a shot into the goalmouth where Ferguson and Dennis Lawrence tried to clear but the referee ruled it had already crossed the line.

Facey added the second goal early in the second half, finishing with a firm shot after being set up by substitute Roland Edge who had been on the pitch only two minutes.

Stuart Elliott nearly got a winner from a clever overhead kick that Baker kept out at full stretch.

Llewellyn had another shot saved when Myhill turned his 20-yard effort aside for a corner with another fine save, before Hull had the last chance when Jason Price produced a header which Baker matched with another fine save.
