    Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds warned fans to never leave early after their "coked up" 5-5 draw with Swindon Town.

    The Hollywood star watched from afar as Phil Parkinson's side played out a staggering back-and-forth League Two clash at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday (August 19) afternoon.

    They found themselves 4-1 down at half-time and despite scoring two goals in four minutes after the restart, looked to be staring down the barrel of defeat with Swindon leading 5-3 come the end of normal time.

    But stoppage-time strikes from James Jones and Elliot Lee rescued a point in dramatic fashion, with Reynolds taking to social media to express his shock after the final whistle.

    Posting on his Instagram story to 49.6million followers, he wrote: "That was the most coked up, insane football match I've seen in a long while #NeverLeaveAWrexhamMatchEarly."

    He then echoed that message on his Twitter account shortly after, sharing Wrexham's full-time tweet with the caption: "So much heart. #NeverLeaveAWrexhamMatchEarly."

    His partner in crime Rob McElhenney also told fans to not make an early dart, echoing: "Never. Ever. Ever. Leave a @Wrexham_AFC game." Before he added: "This team and this town will never ever give up. All heart all the time."

    Wrexham had fallen 2-0 behind thanks to goals from Jake Young and Charlie Austin before Jake Bickerstaff pulled one back before the half hour mark. Daniel Kemp struck just two minutes later for the visitors, though, before Young grabbed his second of the game shortly after.

    Lee and Jones brought Wrexham back to within a goal of Swindon after just 10 minutes of the second half. 

    Kemp scored again with a little under 20 minutes to go to seemingly secure all three points, but the late comeback ensured it was honours even.

    Speaking post-match, Parkinson said: "The lads were never ever giving in. If you put on a Wrexham shirt that's a requirement. But equally, we've got to be honest with ourselves. We need to do better."
