Print deadlines meant there was no coverage of the Villa game in the Bury programme. The next home game was against York and manager John Neal preferred to focus on the fantastic support that the team received despite the heavy defeat.
"Side Lines" also estimated that Wrexham had made £22,000 from their League Cup exploits that season.
