Wrexham star’s ‘naughty’ goal earns Ryan Reynolds’ side first win in League Two

Wrexham are off the mark in the Football League – and it's all thanks to a sublime chip from Ollie Palmer.

The Red Dragons welcomed Walsall to the SToK Racecourse on Tuesday evening, securing their first win in League Two. Wrexham lost their opening clash with MK Dons – in a seven goal thriller – before sharing the spoils with AFC Wimbledon.

And Phil Parkinson's side were in no mood to secure anything less than three points on Tuesday, as they raced into a two-goal lead. The second was the pick of the bunch, as Ollie Palmer was in the right place at the right time following a poor clearance.

Palmer opened up his body and cushion the ball over the keeper with his first touch, on the volley, from 25-yards out to find the net.

"Ollie Palmer you have rocked my world," a third tweeted. And another added: "Ollie Palmer are you f***ing real mate. Wonderful!"
