Wrexham   0 - 1   Swindon

A late goal from Gordon Greer sent Swindon into the third round of the FA Cup past superior, 10-man Wrexham.

Ashley Westwood had a header cleared off the line as Wrexham impressed.

The home side stayed on top after the break, even after Christian Smith's straight red for a reckless 52nd-minute challenge on Jonathan Douglas.

David Lucas saved superbly from Wes Baynes and Marc Williams, before Greer rose above a static defence to nod in Jon-Paul McGovern's inswinging corner.


Wrexham manager Dean Saunders:
"That's really disappointing. I thought we played really well from start to finish - but every goalie that comes here seems to play really well.

"I've spoken to Christian. I can't tell you what I said but I wasn't being nice to him.

"I thought that the sending-off would have killed us but we seemed to get better.

"I'm really frustrated by the goal from the corner. It was a free header. I don't think they got near our goal apart from that.

"We have to take a bit of heart from the performance. I thought it was there for the taking.

"Not putting the ball in the net is killing us. We have to get three points against Forest Green on Tuesday."

Swindon manager Danny Wilson told BBC Wiltshire:

"Wrexham pushed us to the limit. We've had some great saves from Dave Lucas, I think the defensive side of us has got us through the game.

"We feel a bit fortunate."
