 The Reasons Wrexham want ‘better protection’ for Paul Mullin after seeing Ryan Reynolds And…

Prolific frontman Mullin was also on the receiving end of a full-blooded challenge in a 1-1 draw at Bradford that his manager believes was a “stonewall” penalty. Those spot-kick shouts were waved away, while no action was taken after seeing the 28-year-old shoved into the advertising boards at Valley Parade.

Mullin is still working his way back to full match sharpness after suffering a punctured lung in pre-season during a supposedly friendly clash with Manchester United in the United States. Wrexham are understandably keen to ensure that their most potent attacking weapon is available as often as possible.

When questioned by reporters about Mullin’s rough treatment against Bradford, including the penalty calls that might have altered the result, Parkinson responded, “It is amazing that the referee has not given that.” It was evident to all of us that the boy had slid in, grabbed him, and pulled him down. It’s an absolute stonewall penalty. You are calling for Mulls to have better protection during open play, even though it is undoubtedly a penalty. I thought he got pushed into the hoardings in the second half but it is a physical game. That’s how we like it but I think when the ref looks back at it, he’ll see that it was a clear pen.”

Mullin’s goal against Bradford gave Wrexham their third of the season. Following his 47 goals in all competitions during the record-breaking promotion-winning campaign of the previous season, Mullin now has 81 goals through 104 appearances. Mullin was brought to SToK Racecourse by Dragons co-owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
