Wrexham fought back from a two-goal deficit to earn an FA Trophy second-round replay against Conference North side Stockport County.

Jack Ryan opened the scoring for the hosts after five minutes, before team-mate Chris Sharp doubled the advantage shortly before half-time.

But striker Connor Jennings narrowed the deficit for Conference side Wrexham with 20 minutes to play.

Louis Moult equalised shortly afterwards with an overhead kick.

The two sides will meet again at the Racecourse on Tuesday, 13 January.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales:

"I'm disappointed not to have seen that game through, we should have won it, there's no two ways about it.

"We looked to try and break Stockport down, they defended deep and got lots of bodies behind the ball... the ball turns over and we find ourselves too high and a little bit exposed.

"Quite why we decided to play offside in those situations with no pressure on the ball I'm not sure, but... it's all us in the second half and we've missed some great opportunities there to finish the job."
